Last post for 2019

Dear Blog Readers

This is the last day I will be using my Chrome Book at school.
The reason that is, is because the Christmas holidays are coming up,
and we only have today and a week left of school.

This year was the best year ever,
I will be sharing the three best highlight from this year.

1. My first highlight was going to Year 6 camp on Kawau Island. That is one of my favourite because we got to do so much fun activities. Camp writing

2. My Second best highlight was before we got to do our reading tests. I liked it because we got to have a fun time for us to write about. One of the activities was when we had to get into buddies and make something "nice" for them (WINK WINK).

3. Finally my last highlight of the year was when we first had our book shelf. When we first got it I was really excited to red one of the book and I remember my very first book it was "Mr Stink" By David Walliams. Silent Reading

Summer Learning Journey Activity: Similes of Shelly-Ann Faser-Pryce

Walt: Summer Learning Journey

Task Description: This task is related to the Summer Learning Journey activity in the holidays, what we had to do for this task was we had to compare stuff to Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (Similes).

Summer Learning Activity: BFG description

The BFG is an respectful (kind of owner) of sophie because he protects her soo much. The BFG wears a green soggy jacket all the time along with his red tight jean shorts (I know right weird). Anyways people say the BFG is known as the Big Friendly Giant. The BFG owns a house filled with lots of potions and inventions, for him to go on, like one of his inventions was when you pull a string then his bed comes out of the wall and he could lye down on it.

Horror story Kawau island, Camp Bentzon

Horror story Camp Bentzon:
Once upon a time there was an island named Kawau, it was a very spooky, scary, and haunted island that's why no one went there very often. Every Creature that lived there died and people are still trying to figure out why. One stormy afternoon we went to have our Halloween camp there. The Teachers didn't know about it being haunted only the kids did but they couldn’t be bothered telling them. On our concert night we heard scary noises so Mr Jacobson went to check to see what it was, the next moment we saw a hand come out of the bushes and it grabbed Mr Jacobson’s t-shirt and pulled him in the bushes. So Mr Goodwin and Mr Somerville rushed there quickly and they got dragged as well. After that all the teachers ran to where they got dragged except for Miss Timmi because she stayed back to look after us. When they went we had to carry on with the concert, then Miss Timmi called Miss Tuia and she didn’t answer so she called the teachers that were with her and they didn’t answer as well. She went to check and they weren’t there so Miss Timmi told all the campers to run up stairs and stay on one side because there was a boy and girl side, so yeah she told us all to go on the girls side cause it was cleaner and we all went in one room because we couldn’t go in two rooms because they’re was only one teacher. So a while later we fell asleep and Miss Timmi was still awake to watch us. In the morning we woke up and went to brush our teeth, then when we went outside some of the boys went with Miss TImmi to check in the bush where the arm popped out of, when we went to check nothing and no one was there so we searched everywhere for them. When we went up `Killer Hill there was this black shadow shaped as a man looking at us, then we heard some people shouting “help me”
To be continued…... Part 2 coming soon so stay tuned.

Camp Bentzon, Top 5 Tips

Camp Bentzon is a fun camp for lucky year 6’s where you do a lot of fun activities. This camp is pretty much where you face your fears. Camp Bentzon is also found on Kawau Island. On Kawau Island you will see a huge white Mansion. Every year 6 camp there is always groups. The group names are Bentzon, Mansion, Kawau, and Katz. Anyways here are a few tips about camp. 

First Killer Hill, as soon as you get to Kawau island you better be prepared because after you’ve unloaded the ferry you have to get ready to go for a very long hike up Killer Hill, and believe me you will regret it if you don't go prepared. What I mean by prepared is full water bottle, nice light bag with your lunch in it, and lastly ears. When Mr Goodwiwn said that Killer Hill really kills you, I didn’t believe him until we started taking the first 5 steps, turned out he was right it does kill you but it especially kills your legs. So if I were you I would take my advice and listen to my teacher. 

Second Morning Tea Time: every time it’s morning tea time you always have to go through the drive thru. If you are wondering what the drive thru is, at camp we have have a “drive thru” where you go through to get your Lunch and Morning Tea. The drive thru is normal windows but they just call it the drive thru. Here's a trick if you want to get more biscuits, the first time you go through make sure your wearing a hat if you want more go through again but wear a different hat and just keep going through until you get caught.

Now the third tip is about Kayaking: When you go kayaking make sure you are really confident, cause if you're not you will get so nervous and forget the instructions because your just sitting there panicking. This tip is what I always did when people would come next to me even teachers, what I did was everytime someone would come next to me I would always lean forward or back or wherever they are and push them away so they’re not in my way. That last tip for Kayaking is when you kayak to Stingray Bay Splash lots of people and get them really good especially Mr Somerville cause I bet you he will splash you too. 

Now for the last and final tip this tip is about playing spotlight: when Mr Jacobsin tell yous to go and hide make sure you stay close to the deck so you could get there and be the first one. When you go and hide make sure there is no one there with you, if there was than you could get caught easily cause that person might move around alot especially when your hiding in the bushes, also if you wanna hide with your friend that is very talkative, if I were you I wouldn’t hide with that person. 

With these Top 5 tips you will have the best year 6 camp ever, when you go to camp I also wish you good luck because if your afraid of heights “unlucky” anyways hope you enjoyed my writing, and your camp. 
Have fun!!!

5 Facts about Weka's

Task description: This is My second task about Kawau Island. What we had to do was find out 5 facts about an animal called a Weka.

And also because some of the kid in the past and some of the teachers have very funny story's about the animal Weka.

Report: The zones in the Rocky Shore

The Rocky Shore is a habitat in the intertidal area along the New Zealand coast. The Rocky Shore has many different zones the splash zone, intertidal zone and subtidal zone. It contains with many different creatures, plants and organisms. 

The Supratidal/Splash zone is right above the high tide mark. It can be wet during storms, rainy days but mostly king tides. Sometimes it can be soft and wet by the splash of the breaking waves coming in. That’s why it’s called the Splash zone or the Supratidal zone.

There are 3 important zones in the Rocky Shore which are named as the High tide zone, Middle tide zone and off course the Low tide zone. The High tide zone is the zone above the intertidal zone so it’s the Highest zone. The Middle tide zone is in between the Low tide zone and the High tide zone. Last but not least the Low tide zone, the Low tide zone is right beneath the Middle tide mark.

The Subtidal zone is below the Intertidal zone right underneath the Low tide mark. The Subtidal zone is absolutely covered with water and also can’t be seen at any time. Every organism cannot dry out or grow because of the amount of water that is covering it. 

The Rocky shore is a habitat in the Intertidal areas along the New Zealand coast. The Rocky shore has many different zones such as the Intertidal zone, subtidal zone and the Supratidal zone. The Rocky shore is a beautiful place to visit, with many different sea creatures and plants.
