Dear Mum and Dad,

 

On Thursday 2, we went on an excursion to observe plants.

First we went to Port Kembla Beach. There were not many plants because of the salt and the sand. Then we got back on the bus.

Next we went to the steelworks. We sat on a hill and observed the plants. We saw bushes and grass. Not many plants grow because of pollution.

We got back on the bus and went to Mt. Keira rainforest. We got off the buss and ate our little lunch in the clearing area. We saw many different types of plants and trees. We saw wattle trees, tall trees, this trees and rock plants.

After that we got back on the bus and went back to school. We arrived at school at 12 o’clock. Then we went into school and talked about our excursion.

We had GREAT fun!!!!

THE RAM IN THE CHILI PATCH

 

Long ago there was a Mexican boy named Juan who helped raise money for his family by growing peppers in his garden.

But one day when he came out to his chili patch, he found a ram there eating some peppers and stomping on others. “Go away, Mr. Ram.” said Juan. “Those are my peppers.” the ram replied. “Get away from me or I’ll butt you into the next country.” Juan started to cry, and all the animals on the little farm fell sorry for him. The cat tried to help. She went up to the ram and said, “You should be ashamed of yourself. Get out of there. Those are Juan’s chili peppers, but the ram lowered his head and said, “Get out of here or I’ll butt you into the next country.” So the cat ran away. The dog tried to help. He came out and barked at the ram, but the ram lowered his head and said, “Get out of here or I’ll butt you into the next country.” the dog too ran away.
