6S on 5/6 Camp 2014

What an amazing camp! For the last 4 days of term 1 there were nearly 120 year 5 & 6 students having a ball at Log cabin camp in Creswick. I have far too many great photos to put in one animoto video so I have broken them up into three.¬† ūüôā

On the way to camp we stopped to visit the Ballarat Fine Arts Gallery where we all took part in a role play about the Eureka Stockade and viewed some brilliant art works related to the topic. After a beautiful dinner of roast lamb and chocolate cake and icecream the we visited the Ballarat cinema to watch Mr Peabody and Sherman.

The second day¬†we were busy¬†at Sovereign Hill from 10am until 5pm. We returned to camp for a yummy dinner of rissoles, sausages, and/or chicken with vegetables and apple crumble and icecream for dessert. We¬†returned to¬†Sovereign Hill¬†later that night¬†to experience the spectacular ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’¬†sound and light show about the Eureka Stockade.

The third day was spent at the camp with a range of activities: flying fox, frisbie golf, obstacle course and trampolines, giant swing, canoeing and archery. To end the final night students had a choice of watching a movie or going on a night walk. Friday morning we packed up and loaded the buses before stopping at the M.A.D.E. Museum in Ballarat, followed by the Prime Ministers Avenue walk in the botanical gardens. We all had lunch beside lake Wendouree before heading back to Werribee.

I had an amazing time on camp and many fantastic memories from the four days.¬† ūüôā
Can you please share at least one of your memorable moments from camp and also something you learnt about Australian History?

Fantastic first day on camp :-)


Today we arrived at Log Cabin Camp in Creswick after learning some more about Eureka Stockade at the Ballarat Art Gallery.

The students had a chance to dress up and do some role playing and also learn from some brilliant art in the gallery.


After some really fun free time exploring the log cabin¬†camp in Creswick¬†we ate a beautiful lamb roast followed by chocolate pudding and icecream. ūüôā

To finish off a great day we went to the Ballarat Cinema and watched Mr Peabody and Sherman.
