Room 6’s Visit to the Humms

It was my first time eating raw whitebait. It was crunchy. I was supposed to swallow it straight down but I didn’t. We went to jump in the long grass and I got stuck in one of them.   Keira

 

I went on the pony and I liked it and it tried to get me off. I went on the big horse and I didn’t like it because it kept on moving sideways. The whitebait tasted yum. I should not have eaten one of them because it was the wrong one and it tasted really yuk! Mason

 

The Humms have a big slide. It is a big, silver plank hooked onto a big high tree. You climb up the slide because there is no ladder and then slide down. Alex and Markus

Also we roasted marshmellows on a campfire. Mine went on fire, so was burnt but I blew it out and it tasted good. I went on the pony, called Willy then I went on the big horse, Greywacke. Alex

 

I caught the biggest whitebait. I asked if I could have it and Mr Humm said “Yes!” It smelt bad! I ate the black bit of the marshmellow first. It didn’t taste the best but then I ate the rest that was roasted and not burnt. Markus

 

We went to the farm and we ate some whitebait. Markus, Rohan, Alex M and I cooked some on the fire. It was yummy! Anya

 

We were at Robbie’s farm and we went whitebaiting. We got to ride on a pony and a big horse. We saw an eel and Jacob’s dad was trying to catch it with a big stick. Alex M, Markus, Anya and I were pretending to be in a survival club. Rohan

 

I liked it when we tried to catch an eel. The whitebait looked like little, wriggly worms and everyone ate it raw. I didn’t want to eat it raw. Rewi

 

I loved it when we went to the Humm’s place because we got to roast marshmellows over a fire and see if we could see the eels in the river. Some people got scared of the eels but I loved the eels. I liked riding on the little pony, Willy. I also liked making huts in long grass. Ellie

 

I liked playing in the long grass with Robbie. We made our own tunnels and crawled through them. I was trying to keep up with Robbie because he was really fast going through the grass on his knees. I liked trying to catch the eels with my dad. Jacob

 

We got to roast marshmellows. We didn’t get to go actual whitebaiting and I didn’t get to eat any of the whitebait. Fabian

 

I got to ride a big horse and a pony. On the big horse it felt like you were going to fall off. When I finished roasting my marshmellow, it came out on fire. Charlie

 

When I tasted the whitebait there was a tangy feeling on my tongue. It was fun when I got to ride the horse because I was up high. Jack

 

I liked the bit when we got to ride the horses because I have never been on a horse before and it is really fun. I like the marshmellows too. Jimmy

I loved it when we went to the dairy farm.  This is my story of the fun we had.  When we got out of the bus there was the most disgusting smell ever.  It smelled like dead ants, rotten milk, poop and vomit.  It was terrible.  I could hear the sizzling BBQ – sizz, sizz, sizz.  There were cows everywhere.  I mean EVERYWHERE!!!!!  I was trying to count them.  Then Room 6 went to the cow shed.  When we got to the cow shed we got to go on the rotary platform.  It was awesome! Next we went on the cow gate.  It was so slow I could walk faster than it.  We got to feel the suction cups.  They felt funny.  Next we got to milk the cow with our hands.  Ellie McWilliamDSC_0086

On My Farm Visit

On my farm visit we got to go on hay bales.  I loved going to the shed.  It was so fun.  I loved it more than everything in the world.  After I played in the hay we went to the cow shed.  At the cow shed I got to play with the hose.  It felt bumpy like a crocodiles back.  I did not get a drink of milk because they ran out of cups but when we came back I played rugby with Alex, Jacob, Mason and Rohan.  We had a great time at the farm.  Then I got a hot chocolate.  It was like cream in my mouth but yummer!  I also got to have a sausage sizzle.  It was yum but not as good as the hot chocolate.  It smelt like poos, on the floor.  It went up my nose.  Abby JohnstoneDSC_0146

Room 6 got to go to Fabian’s farm and then we got to have a ride on the herding fence.  It was fun.  Some kids got to put their finger in the suction cups.  Room 6 got to play in the hay bales.  Sam got stuck in a hole.  Robbie fell in a hole.  I got to pat a calf.  It was warm.  We got to  milk a cow and the cows were warm.  The cows legs were covered in poo.   Room 6 got to squirt the hose and we got to drink milk.  It tasted like Milo.  Rohan MurrayDSC_0098

At the dairy farm I fell down a big hole in the hay bale.  Cole helped me and Markus out.  At the top of the hay bale there were two baby birds.  There was a whole lot of poo around them.  We went down to the cow shed.  Some people touched the cows udder.  We got to have fresh milk and I didn’t like it.  I got to pat a cow and go on the milking thing.  I put my finger into the sucking thing.  I was going to call them sucking cups.  When we got to the shed everyone jumped up on the hay bale and got stuck in the hole again.  Robbie fell down a big hole but in the end everyone had fun.  But it smelled like POO!  Keira

On Wednesday were were going to a farm.  It was exciting.  I couldn’t wait to go.  We hopped on the bus.  When we got there it smelled horrible! I went with Rohan, Declan and Alex .  It was with Declan’s mum.  We went to the cow shed first.  I hated the smell.  I didn’t feel well because it had a strong smell.  Ww went on the machine that pushed the cows into get milked.  We went around.  It had food in it.  Then we went to get some food.  We played in the haybales and  on the tractor.  Abby, Jacob, Charlie, Declan and I played rugby.  Some people patted the calves.  We got an ice block.   It was the end of the day.   Alex HawkesDSC_0095
