Read about our wonderful excursion to the Gould League!

Excursion to the Gould League

On Monday morning 1/2B went to the Gould

League.

First we watched a movie about a compost bin.

Next  we  went  to  the  forest   looking for  Mini

beast. Then  we  went  to  the

incredible shrinking 

machine.

Finally we went on the slide and started our

journey back to school.
