The Water Expo-Nelson

Inquiry Expo

At the expo we made a presentation or a poster to show to the class. I made a presentation on my netbook. It was about water pollution.

Our class had to show our presentations first and there were lots of posts about water pollution. One of my favourites was nine pages long.

The Fete By Dom

The Fete

On fete day I ran to my dad, dumping the bag at his feet. I already had my wristband on and I also had my little brother’s with me.

As I ran to find Josh I wondered how I could keep track of time since my busking was at 5.27. Once I found Josh he started worrying too, he was worried about his mum coming late. He couldn’t get his money that way.

But eventually his mum came. We rushed to the ‘slushy’ stall. I had raspberry flavour and so did Josh. After that I got a diet coke because the coke had run out.

We rushed to the giant slide (The Cha-Cha was broken!) and as we got a mat, some people I saw were sneaking in without a mat. I slid down quite a few times, but on one go Josh accidentally hit me in the face while trying to hi-five me. I had a cut lip, but I forgave him when Conor told me what happened in the line for the flying chairs.

I was worried about my lip but eventually I stopped worrying and kept calm even when it was swelling.

Next I had my busking. My mum kept shouting at me but I could not hear her. She was yelling about my busking! I was late!!!

I rushed to the hall with ten milliseconds to spare! They were about to skip me! At least my Jokes were a success! A worker said they laughed at every one!

It was fun from then but also a bit weird when I had a souvlaki hot-dog. Before I went home I drank TWO cartons of juice! I reckon this year’s fete was the weirdest fete ever!

The Script

Scene: An old and dusty attic in an abandoned house. Creaky floorboards, broken furniture and cobwebs make the attic quite spooky.

KID 1 – What is this place?

Kid 2 – I don’t know , but it’s really cool!

Kid 3 – I think it’s spooky!

Kid 4 – Yeah, I don’t think we should be snooping around, can we please just get out of here?

Kid 5 – Don’t be such a scaredy cat, there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of!

Scary Laughter Sound comes out of nowhere. Everyone runs and jumps of the stage screaming and running around each other in panic……….eventually they calm down.

Kid 1 – Hey look, what’s that?

Kid 3 – Wow it looks like a treasure chest!

Kid 4 – Maybe it’s full of gold and jewels!

Kid 2 – Or maybe it has the shrunken head of a pirate inside!

Kid 3 and 4 look at each other and scream.

Kid 1 – Now you’ve done it!

Kid 5 – Will you cut it out with all the freaky stuff!

Kid 2 – Sorry.

Kid 1 – Let’s open it and have a look.

Kid 3 and 4 – We think that’s a really bad idea!

Kid 5 – Go on then …open it.

Kid 1 – Why don’t you open it?

Kid 5 – No you open it!

Kid 1 – No, you open it!

Kid 5 – No you open it!

Kid 2 – I’ll open it! (Takes box) Turns to audience and says – Will you all please close your eyes because this story is about to get really scary!

Opens box and on stage appear several pirates and a large chicken.

Pirate Captain – Open your eyes me hearties if ya dare to look on the faces of the most fearsome band of pirates ever to sail the seas!

Chicken – buc buc buc buc!

Pirate Captain – And I almost forgot me most trustworthy companion – the chicken!

Chicken – buc buc buc Bucky!

Kid 5 – Aren’t pirates meant to have parrots instead of chickens?

Pirate Captain – Silence! If yer know what’s good for yer!

Pirate 1 – Captain these landlubbers have yer long lost treasure chest!

Pirate 2 – Shall we run them through with our swords?

Pirate 3 – Shall we make them walk the plank?

Pirate 4 – Shall we make them dance for us?

Pirate 5 – Let’s make them sing and dance for us!

All pirates cheering – aye aye!

Pirate Captain – And you call yerself pirates, make them sing and dance indeedy, I never heard such codswallop! Get ’em!

Pirates jump off stage running at treasure chest.
Kids run back screaming. Pirates try to catch kids, but kids keep getting away.









Scary laughter makes them freeze then they hear a creaking door opening and footsteps getting louder……until Zombies appear on stage as Thriller music starts. Zombies dance.

Zombie 1 – What’s in the Box? (leans in to grab box)

Zombie 2 – (laughing) Yes, that’s right, it’s time for  “Hey Zombie, What’s in the Box? “ The show where you get to win a million dollars if you can guess  ….

All shout – What’s in the box?!

Zombie 3– Our first contestant is a pirate who has always wanted to buy her/his very own house boat…..are you ready ?

Pirate – aaaaarrrrgh!

Zombie  2- Remember if you guess what’s in the box you could be walking away with a million dollars, but if you don’t guess correctly then you’ll be facing ……the Zombie Dab!

Zombies  – Zombie Dab! Zombie Dab! Zombie Dab!

Pirate  – Would it be a golden dagger?

Zombie 1 – That is ……..incorrect! Bring on the dab!

Zombie 4- Our next contestant is a kid who wants to donate all of the money to charity.

Zombies  – Ohhhhhhhh.

Zombie 2 –What’s in the box?

Kid – Is it a fidget spinner?

Zombie 1  – That is ……..incorrect! Dab her!

Zombie 5 – And for a final chance to win one million dollars our last contestant is a chicken who just  wants to free range. Everybody say it….

All shout – What’s in the box?

Chicken – Buck buck buck bucky?

Zombie 1 – That is absolutely….incorrect! Dab them all!

One after another there are dramatic deaths from all kids and pirates.

Parent  – Hey kids, it’s time for dinner now. Remember what I said – until everybody has eaten a proper dinner there’ll be no trick or treating!

All shout – Trick or treating ….let’s go! (all run off stage)


Nesting Boxes by Aoife


Nesting boxes are homes to many animals who which do not have natural homes.


Nesting boxes are made out of wood, plastic and much more other stuff that is good for animals and nature. Many animals come as if they are welcomed into a new home. We make the nesting boxes so that animals can have a new home.


At the sanctuary, we saw heaps of nesting boxes in trees and in wetlands. They are used for birds and possums to have a new home.


In nature, there are other nesting boxes called hollows. Now, those hollows are the reason we have the nesting boxes because the hollows have a cycle. Only trees that are old ( 100 years ) can produce hollows. When there is a strong breeze a branch snaps off and makes a hollow basically.

This nesting box is home to an eastern yellow bird. When a bird enters a nesting box, they declare that it is its home and its property.


A duck can also live in a nesting box because the duck can’t just be on the ground where other animals (predators) will come and eat the duck for its dinner.


At the wildlife sanctuary, we saw heaps of ducks including the black billed buzzard and the mallard. At the sanctuary we saw some nesting boxes on a walk to the wetlands



Latrobe Wetlands-Zoe

Latrobe wetlands-by Zoë

The frogs of the wetlands

There were three particular frogs at the Latrobe wetlands that we were informed about. Each of them had a special sound. The first sound was pebbles against each other, the next was wood, and then it was like brrruuuuppp buuurrrppp.

Bugs of the wetlands

There are many types of water bugs at the Latrobe wetlands each of them bearing a different look. Everyone got to look at a few water bugs I saw a back swimmer and almost fell backwards. I was so surprised.
