On Thursday we went to Kelly Tarlton's with the Kauri Team. First we hopped on the bus. To pass the time, I played "eye spy" with Amy. Finally we got there. Then we had our morning tea in the car park. I had banana cake, a sandwich and raisins. A few minutes later we were following the penguin feet and going into Kelly Tarlton's.
One of my favourite parts was the Interactive Room. I dressed up as a penguin in a penguin suit and Lisa (Amy's mum) took a photo of me and Amy in our penguin suits. Then we had a race!
After that, we went into the shark tank. There were fish, stingrays, sharks, eels, big and small fish. Fish and stingrays were gliding across the tank like clouds floating across the sky. I saw a fish as spotty as a cheetah.
Soon it was time to go back to school and have lunch. It was a really fun day.
On Thursday, Rooms 10, 11, 9 and 8 went to Kelly Tarlton's. We went by bus. When we got there, we had morning tea outside Kelly Tarlton's and then we went to the Education Room and watched a movie about Antarctica. We learnt that Antarctica is very dry so you have to wear lots of moisturizer, and that it is the coldest place in the whole world. Also, if you don't wear goggles there, you could get snow blindness.
Then we went to the snow cat ride. On the ride we saw penguins and a big fake whale came out of the water with a seal in it's big mouth. We also saw still flags and fake people. It was very cool and fun.
After that we went to the Stingray Bay. I saw a turtle swimming and under the turtle was a big stingray. Soon we had to leave Kelly Tarlton's and go back to school. It was a good day.
On Thursday was the Kauri Team's trip to Kelly Tarltons. I was in Jordan's group. I was next to Jordan and we chatted lots and lots. When we got to Kelly Tarlton's, we had morning tea. I had tiny teddies and tangles. It was cold eating outside.
One place we went to inside Kelly Tarlton's was the stingray tank. We saw the stingrays getting fed. There were heaps of fish. I saw a turtle too.
Next we went to the sharks. I saw two tiger sharks. There were two divers with the sharks. I also saw a turtle. It looked like it was fake.
I felt happy at Kelly Tarlton's. I had a fun day.
