On the first Thursday of the holidays I went to woods lake and camped there for a couple of days. We had a kick of the footy and we saw lots of animals. We caught 3 trout and had giant marshmallows at the campfire. The only bad thing was that there was no signal so I couldn’t do any blogging.
I also went to the Tasmanian army barrack museum and found out about a lot of wars and what weaponry was used a long time ago in wars.
I also did a couple of posts on my blog about sharks. I had a really good holidays and it was really fun.
On the 16th of September our school is having a fair. It will be the first fair our school has had for about 5 years. It will be quite a big fair including the following: A pluck a duck stall, popcorn and fairy floss, a tombola stall, hot chips, a handball trailer, fresh juice and smoothies, sausages and cold drinks, a chocolate trailer, face painting, pulled pork rolls, fairy gardens, wood fired pizza’s, a photo booth, local artists, inflatable slides, donuts, carnival games and a jumping castle. It will be a lot of fun. We will definitely do as many of these thins as we can. I (Kieran) will be doing the tombola stall at 1pm with Jack, Hanna, Jacob and Zach. I (Hayden) will be doing a stall with my mum and Jack’s mum selling pulled pork rolls.
Tiger Sharks are a very dangerous type of shark, they are only slightly less dangerous than the Great White Shark. They can eat almost anything and have even been known to have tyres found in their stomachs. The Tiger Shark can grow up to 5 metres and usually lives in tropical or subtropical waters. They are very well camouflaged and they swim slowly which makes it hard for prey to sense them. Tiger Sharks have almost no predators but Killer Whales have been known to attack them.
This is me straining all the excess liquid out of the solid milk curds for the glue
On Sunday the 3rd of September I decided to make some glue out of natural products for our sustainability project.
It was very interesting making it and I was interested to see if it would be successful.
Here is the recipe;

Add the white vinegar slowly to the milk and stir. Continue stirring the mixture until the milk begins to separate into liquid whey and solid curds.
Pour the mixture through a strainer. Discard the liquid whey and put the solid curds back into the saucepan. Hold the solid curds in your hand and squeeze gently to remove any excess liquid whey.
Combine the baking soda and water in a small bowl until well mixed. Pour the mixture into the saucepan with the solid curds. Turn the stove on medium heat. Heat the mixture while stirring continuously until it starts to bubble.
Turn the heat off and let the homemade glue cool for several minutes. Transfer the glue to a glass jar once it is cool to the touch.
* Store the homemade glue in a safe location out of direct sunlight and away from heat.
I found out that it worked extremely well and I would definitely recommend it. Though it does smell a bit.
We are going to share some info about the creepy and very rare Goblin Shark, (Mitsukurina owstoni). Goblin sharks live in steep slopes, submarine canyons and seamounts throughout the world at depths at 100m. Various body features of the Goblin Shark includes flabby skin and small fins. They mainly base their diet of Teleost fish, cephalopods and crustaceans. Goblin sharks are very rare sharks and only live in extremely deep water, they have only been seen a couple of times and we still have a lot to learn about them. Goblin sharks have a very interesting jaw which they can dislocate and shoot forward to grab their prey and then move it back to it’s normal position.
