Year 4 Convict Day

‚ÄčOn Wednesday 27th March, Year 4 were transported back in time to become the convicts aboard the First Fleet.

Under the supervision of Captain Widdison and Captain Wallace, the Year 4 convicts engaged in a variety of activities throughout the day including making identification cards, interpreting convict slang words, scrubbing the deck (basketball court filled with chalk), playing a game of marbles, constructing the first settlement on the oval, tasting convict food (porridge and damper) and attempting to build a boat, capable of moving using the power of air. A wonderful day was had by all as this rich learning experience formed a perfect ending to our Integrated Studies topic this term.
