Harry at the Markets

Standard

 

On Friday, all the boys were working at the markets. Kevin B, Xavier, Shane, Kevin L, Harry (me), Hamish and Mark were working together.

We were selling pumpkin muffins made by Williams 4 and bliss balls made by my class (Williams 1). Wendy made jam and chilli sauce and orange-mango and mango-chilli rollups. Wendy’s chickens been lay some eggs and we sell them at the markets. We were selling pumpkin, watermelon and mulberry plants too. 

Lots of teachers came and they were buying from the Garden Gang. The teachers were happy and they were proud of us.

We were feeling happy and excited when we see the customers. We felt like big kids. Wendy was helping us a little bit but we did the selling by ourselves. It was fun and we liked being the Garden Gang.

Ellemor 1 Teamwork

Standard

Today, Ellemor 1 was chopping the trees. We cut down the palm tree because it had bugs in it. Also, it didn’t give us fruit or shade and its roots were going everywhere and stopping the new plants, so we didn’t need it.

The whole class was working hard and showing teamwork. Wendy talked about all the jobs we were going to do and we were choosing which ones we wanted to do. We also thought of new jobs when we got to the garden. 

 

I was getting the vegetables and dead leaves and putting them

 in the compost bin. Then I was mixing it. The boys get the big loppers and chop the ugly bush. The girls were chopping the trees into little pieces. Djinangbuy and Wendy were helping too.

Everyone was feeling good and smiling. After that, we put all the tools in the cupboard and had iceblocks! It was amazing.

Flower Ninjas!

Standard

Yesterday Mobile School and Williams 1 were collecting the bottles. Then our class were cutting them and making flowers. Lastly, Western 6 was painting them. There were 93 altogether!

Today, 4 kids were going to Mobile School and putting them on the fence. We didn’t tell the mobile school. We were like flower ninjas! Later, the mobile school kids were feeling happy to see them.

On the way home, we picked up all the rubbish at the shop and showed the adults how to use the recycling cage!

It was fun and everyone was happy.

Standard

Today, I was cutting the banana trees with big secateurs because some were broken from the wind. Also, one of them had bananas and I chopped them off. Some had yellow leaves and I chopped them off. I was being a good worker. Clayton and Steve were helping me because the trees were big.

The other kids were pulling weeds and feeding the chickens.

After lunch, we went to class and we were reading books. Some of the girls were making banana cake and it smells good! When it is ready we will all eat it.

I am having a good day.
