Do you want to know what I did last week? Last week the year five and six students went to camp. We had our year five and six camp on our school field,we were really lucky to have a camp at school,it was such a cool experience.
On Wednesday the All Stars went down to Pt England Beach to Kayak. Before we got into the Kayak we had to put on life vests. When we got in the Kayak we had to get in by using the strategy of foot bum foot. Kayaking was so much fun. When I went into the kayak I was a bit scared, but I got used to it I paddled and paddled for a long time. After kayaking we went for a little swim. Kayaking was so much fun.
The other thing I liked at camp was sleeping in a tent. Sleeping in a tent was so much fun. In my tent I had Yvonne and Rima. We had a secret stash of biscuits that we weren’t supposed to bring,we had to silently open the packet so we could gobble it all up. Luckily no one caught us eating .During the night we were laughing and coughing. I was shivering because It was freezing cold. We had to get up really early because we had to do exercise. We slept in the tent for two nights.
My group name was called All Stars. Our team Leaders were Khaia and Taimana,they are great leaders. Our teachers were Mr Goodwin and Miss Garden. They were great Leaders as well.
On Thursday night we had our Camp Concert. Our song for our group was Billie Jean By Michael Jackson. I think our dance was one of the best. The announcement came for the winner and the winner was Manaaki,Manaaki was another camp group then we listened closely, Mr Jacobson enounced the group in second place and that was us. It was the All Stars. The group that came third was CareTakers.
Our second rotation on Thursday was baking . The girls in the All Stars went to the hall foya to bake. We were baking with Mrs Jarman and we baked chocolate chip cookies. We had to get into pairs of two,we had to measure the ingredients and then bake. Baking was so fun.
The last thing we got to do at camp was to go to Mangere Pools. Mangere Pools was so fun because we got to go on the slide. The slide was my favourite part of the day. I also liked the deep pool and the normal pool. The other thing that was open at the pool was the bombing pool, I didn't want to go in the bombing pool because it was really deep and I dont know how to bomb properly. I was overjoyed about what Mangere Pools had.
I was so unhappy that camp had to end. I just can’t wait for next year’s year five and six camp. Maybe I might become a group leader. At the end of camp we had to clean out our tents. When it is 2015 we will have our year five and six camp as well as the the year six camp at Kawau Island. It was such an awesome experience.I will never forget my first camp at school.
This is a plate of cookies I have drawn. This is what we had for afternoon tea.
