On Tuesday, all the grade 2s went on an excursion to IMAX and the Melbourne Museum, because we are learning about Minibeasts.
We had to go on a bus to get there. When we arrived, we ate our fruit and snack, and then we had a play on the playground. After that, we went to IMAX to watch a 3D movie called ‘Bugs: Mighty Micro Monsters’. Lots of people got scared, but everybody liked the movie, although some people thought it could have been a bit more scary! We saw lots of awesome bugs in the movie. It felt like the bugs were coming out of the screen towards us, lots of people reached out to grab them!
After the movie, we ate our lunch then went back to the playground for another play. Next, we went to the Forest Gallery where we saw lots of birds and different plants. Outside the Forest Gallery some people saw a man juggling heaps of juggling sticks, and a lady hula-hooping!
At the Bugs Alive exhibit we went in a special dome to see bullants up close, there were lots and lots of spiders, and even one spider that wasn’t behind any glass!!! We also saw a movie about other spiders.
By the end of the day everyone was VERY tired, but we had lots of fun! Some people nearly fell asleep on the bus ride home.
