Camp Kaitawa

On Monday when we were 1 hour away from Camp Kaitawa, we broke down, we had to wait half-an-hour before anyone came to give us a jump start. It was really boring waiting, but we finally got to camp.  After we got there, we had something out of our lunch box.  But first we had to unpack our bedding, we got into our togs and had a swim in the lake.  The lake was really cold at the start, when it was night time we went up to Lou's lookout.   It was really fun because we got to look down and see the vans and how far we walked up while we were walking.   Mrs Miler said "go to the left" but Jack went to the left a bit too much and he fell down into the hole. Bevan climbed down the hole and helped him up, it was really fun.
We did a confidence course, my trickiest thing that I did in the confidence course was the wire bridge because I kept on missing my step, my favourite part was the cargo net because I flipped at the top of it. I had lots of fun doing the confidence course. After, we went for a bush walk, it was exciting but I kept on tripping over the tree roots, then we went back to the vans.  The drivers of the vans were Miss Hill, Paul, Mike, Bevan and Byron.
We had a Master chef competition, my group came 5th, my colour was orange.  In my group, I had Marshall, Bowen, Jasmine and Leo.  For breakfast, we baked pancakes, we had like a dinner for lunch, we made spaghetti Bologna and potato chips, we had to use 3 vegies.   My group did potatoes, peas and onions.  Also, we went to Lake Wherowhero to have a kayak, we had to wear life jackets to be safe and the tubes where blown up.  It was also fun because Caitlin and I nearly capsized when we were standing up to swap over, and that was when I was in the front of the kayak, Caitlin was in the front first because she is the oldest.  Caitlin and I got stuck in the weeds, so we had to get Jack F to help us out.
We went caving with Miss Hill, we got split into two groups.  I was in the first group, the group had to wear long johns, a thermal, t-shirt, raincoat and a beanie and of cause sneakers.  In caving, we got so dirty that after the caving we had to put tarpaulins down so that we did not get the seats dirty in the vans, during the caving, we had to climb up rocks and go down rocks.  At the end we had to go down into this like 3 meter hole and it was so so so slippery.
On Friday it was our packing up day and we weren't allowed to have any breakfast until all of us were packed.  After we had breakfast, we went down to the courts to play some games, at the end we did a handstand competition and I won and Bowen came 2nd.  We got in the vans and went back to school.  I saw my mum, she was waiting for me, she was so glad to see me again, she was asking me lots of questions about camp, I want to go there again.

Shiny,  hard
Bouncing, dribbling, pushing
Trying to shoot in the hoop...defending the opposition
Passing, catching, scoring
Strong, powerful

Auckland Art

Success Criteria:
  • Choose 2 primary colours to dye onto an A3 paper, blending the dye will create a secondary colour.
  • Plan a pattern on your art work thinking about different types of lines.
  • Optional - Add shapes to create interest.

What I like about my art is that in the end I made it look 3D, I really liked that bit.  

I would like to improve making the diamond look like a real diamond because it did not look like a real diamond and I would improve the thickness around the outlines. I used the planning muscle to get to this point and I am proud of my artwork because I got it finished in the time frame and I think I did very good shapes.

Funny Bunny

Exaggeration poem writing
Exaggeration means claiming something is greater than it really is. For example, if you said “my cat is as big as a house” or “I can run faster than the speed of light,” you would be exaggerating.

To write your own exaggeration poem, you only need to do three things:
  1. Pick something to write about.
  2. Pick a feature or characteristic of the thing that you are writing about.
  3. Exaggerate that characteristic in every way you can think of, making a list as you go.
  4. Take your list of ideas and turn them into a poem.

Here are some more tips to help you get started:
  • When you write your exaggeration poem, it doesn’t have to rhyme, unless you want it to.
  • If you can’t think of a funny ending for your poem, try ending it with the same lines you used at the beginning of the poem.

Good luck writing your own exaggeration poems!

I bought a funny bunny
She can jump as far as a kangaroo
Looking like a bunny on a spring
Shes new, she's blue.

The eats hay and weighs 1.24 tonne
Neighs like a horse
Get out of my way funny bunny
She jumps over China’s wall, of course!

Funny bunny keeps like a snoring bear and snores louder than a jet pack She always coughs in her sleep
It is always really boring watching her snack

Funny bunny and I love games and
Exploring and fighting each other
It is really fun to play fight
Until we see our mother!

I hope you enjoyed the story see you later!!! (funny bunny)

camp omatua

My favorite thing at camp was  bush bashing because we had to  jump over some

broken tree branches and wood.

When Caitlin and I were tubing we tipped over and landed on top of each other ha! ha! Ha!.  Then when we went down the river in the  kayaks,  it was so fun I would like to do it again.  I'm not scared anymore because it was epic!   

Thank you
