Lamb and Calf Day - Supreme Champion

My Lucky Day

On the 13th of October I arrived at Auroa School for Lamb and Calf Day.  My next door neighbour wasn’t there so I waited and waited.   After a while I saw Ashleys car and went over to see her, after a while I saw Alison and Rob with the calves.

I helped get the calves out and tied my calf Honey up took the cover of and brushed her for a very long time then I walked over to the rings and waited for the juniors to finished.   Finally it ended then I had to wait for my number to be called.  Finally I was was called I was at the end waiting waiting finally it was my turn I walk the M and did a circle around the middle peg stopped when I was told then finished.  Mum said that I did it beautiful then it was ribbon time the judge called my number first then more people I can’t remember the order but I first I was so proud.

I was still waiting in line then we started walking it was rearing the judge looked at all calves then my calf.  Then stood in the middle then came back and looked at my calf again then I was told to come in the middle then more people were told I got first place and champion.

Waiting, waiting, “finally” I had to go to the ring where the grand supreme champion judging was.  I lead first I walk up then on a angle then more people lead then we walked in a line and stop the judges looked at all the calves then I was told to come up then Freddie I got grand  supreme champion then I helped put the calf's in the trailer then I did a cartwheel and hit Freddies jaw, fell on my head pretty hard and twisted my neck then we went to Hawara.

R3 Skittles Experiment

In Room Three last week we were looking at the changes made with Skittles when we dissolved them in water. We looked at changing the water temperature and seeing if that had an affect on the speed of the changes we observed. We then put together iMovies of our experiments and time lapsed them.
