School picnic

WALT:  Recount our experiences of our time at the School Picnic.

 What is favorite thing in your school picnic? Our whole school went to the school picnic, At the Point England reserve on friday we went because it was an annual event, school hang out.

My favorite part in the school picnic was swimming and bombing, Because swimming is just like taining how to swim when you're Jawning,”HA”  just like me it was a little bit deep for me. Bombing is cool because that was my last time, I don’t like swimming in the seawater because of the creators they scare me.

My least favorite part of of the picnic was play with clay and hanging out with my friends. Playing with clay making it into a heart it was a gift to my mother and father for being the best.Hanging out with my friends were just a little bit fun because we played handball and walking around the beach talking about how fun it was at camp.

Next year I want to play some sports like volleyball and soccer. The very best and boring part was swimming and bombing in sea water.
Listening to people sing songs like: uptown funk by bruno mars, roar by katy perry, more other songs to. I LOVED THE SCHOOL PICNIC.

Year 5 and 6 camp 2015

WALT: write paragraphs about one thing and using great ideas.

Have you been to a school CAMP before?
The years 5 and 6’s went to the 2015 CAMP we were so excited. Our groups names were: The all stars, The matapono e, The commitments, The real deals, True crew and the Honest squad. I was in the Commitments and our leaders were Judah and Talita and our camp teacher was Mr Somerville he was the best ever. We had tent’s put up and in my tent was: Daniella and Aliyah. We were the best tent group sleepers, together.

The first thing we did was camp cooking. The boys went and did camp cooking outside on the field While; we were cooking biscuits, (Anzac biscuits)  for afternoon tea. When we were finished Mrs Garden put the Anzac biscuits inside the oven to. When it was ready, it smelled so delicious that it made Mr Somerville hungry. But camp cooking is all about teamwork and helping others to work as a team.

The second thing that we did was the Amazing race. The Amazing race was about teamwork, in my group was Russell, Andrew, Lethen and Daniella. “They were the best working team in amazing race.” There were five tasks we needed to complete. One was to paint one of your buddy's face; and make the word H-O-N-E-S-T.; We needed to throw balls in hula hoops and to take a photo with all the balls in the bucket.

The third thing that we did was kayaking with Mr Burt. The current forced our kayaks out into the water. As we got into our kayaks, Miss Garden reminded us about “foot bum foot”. This is a rule of how to get into the kayak. The best thing about kayaking was going on with my favorite friend: DANIELLA.

The best part in camp was the concert and Mangere Pools. On the last day of camp all the campers went to Mangere Pools. “It was heaps of fun and amazing.” We all loved it, there was a bombing pool, a sliding pool, a spring pool and a normal PLAY pool. It was nearly everybody elses favorite part about camp too.

Next time on camp I want to be able to have MORE fun and to be with my best buddy’s again in the same team and same tent. Without them I would have been bored I love sleeping with my best buddy’s. The best activity for me was: camp cooking, the concert and the BEST was the Mangere Pools. “It was boring when camp ended”. I LOVE CAMP!

Catching mustelids 1.

WALT: Use clues from the text to read and understand new words

Screenshot 2015-03-09 at 09.47.35.png

A mustelid trap works as if it is a giant mouse trap in boxes but it is a mustelids trap, you put an egg at the back of the trap. This is the bait. Meat can also be used too. The mustelid smells the baits. Straight away, it wants to find the bait and eat it.
