Melbourne Cup day

Today was the 153rd running of the Melbourne Cup.Tthe Melbourne Cup is a 2 mile,weight for age horse race that 'stops the nation'. It is a public holiday in Melbourne and an unofficial public holiday elsewhere. Over 100 000 people will watch the cup at Flemington Race Course while millions across Australia and the world will watch it on TV or listen to the race call on the radio.We usually do some fun things at school on this day....no not a holiday for me!! Today we had a range of activities to do ( refer to the photos of hats that my student teacher made) and held a sweep of the race and had party pies and sausage rolls for lunch.
