Camp Collage

Today we mad a collage on our activities we did at camp. The activities we did was archery, chariot racing, high ropes, adventure base learning and orienteering. It was very fun at camp.  At camp we learnt a lot of things like how to tie a figure eight knot, a reef knot and a bowline. While at camp we filmed the Rat Lin Bog song it was very fun.

Kokako Bird

Today we had to make a Infographic about the North Island Kokako. When we were reading about the North Island Kokako the information was very interesting. Did you know there are two types of the Kokako bird there is the North Island kokako which is the one we researched about and the South Island Kokako. North Island Kokako cannot fly they just use their wings to keep balance and they use their powerful legs to jump away from stoats, possums, and ship rfats. 

Camp-Photo Story

Today we had to make a photo story about our camp.  In the photo story it is showing you all the activities we did at camp. My favourite part about camp was Archery because it was fun trying to hit the balloons and it was funny when we had to do press ups and run up the hill lucky I wasn't one of them but I ran up and help my friend get up the hill. It was fun when I fell down while running down the hill and my friend landed on me.

Camp Recount

As I put one finger above the knock I felt scared and nervous in my head because the string might hit my arm and was nervous because the arrow might go above below. Slowly I pulled back the string  bang I shot the arrow it was going straight to the the mud. I shouted WHY!

Now I have to grab my arrows. I stood in the mud with a funny face. It was disgusting my shoes that just got washed that was looking bright red into bright brown. I was very worried and was imagining what my dad will say when he saw my shoes?

I had my last 3 shots BANG BANG BANG all my shots all gone that fast. They all hit the board but they landed on the blue one. I was disappointed that I didn’t hit the balloon.

I wish camp was every because I had a lot of fun there and I want to do archery again.

Water Care with Sally

On Monday we had Mrs Sally from Water Care to come and talk to us about Water Cycles , Rivers/Lake and Rubbish/Bad Liquid going to the sea and how bad it is for sea animals. We had a lot of fun with Mrs Sally. I learnt of stuff. We learnt not to put rubbish on the ground because this could go down the drain into the sea and sea animals which is not good. I think we should be responsible and pick up our rubbish. In this DLO it shows what we did with Mrs Sally. We had three challenges that connected with Rivers and Lakes. One of our challenge was to build a lake out of rocks and see if we could fit 12 liters of water inside our lake. Everyone had fun. 

Auckland is been asked to conserve water/why?

Today we had to make a DLO on Auckland conserving water. We had to conserve water because Water care cannot keep up with cleaning the water. So we have to save 20 litres a day of water. We can do this by have shorter showers, only use dishwasher and washing machine when they are full and turn of the tap when brushing your teeth.
