On February the 14 we set off for our very first excursion as a unit. (Miss Shepherd’s class came with us). We were met at the centre by Peter and he chattered to us about a lot of the pond creatures we might find that day. There was a lot of new learning for everyone – including for the adults! We then set off on a bush trek to the pond.
It got steeper than this …phew!
We were put into groups and given a bucket of pond water and a net and were sent off to see what we could find! Mrs Moore was most impressed that no one fell in!!!
After finding lots of little bugs and a tadpole or two, we set off back down the track. Unfortunately we ran out of time to do our next walk to a campsite to cook damper. However, …. made a fire at the centre and we cooked our damper there! Yum!!!
Before eating this however we set off for the bridge challenge – we had to cross a tyre bridge over a creek and then come back over a rope bridge! Pretty scary!
