Camp Aratika

Last month on March Point England school had there year five and six camp at our school on our big field in tents.Then suddenly the bell rang we met our leader and our teacher.

The first activity my group had was camp cooking.The teacher who was there was Whare Warane.
she said we were "cooking damper and it was a kind of bread". After that she quickly said the instructions and said "clean your hands in the blue bucket and get a bamboo stick from the red bucket. Then finally we got given our piece of damper to twirl around our bamboo stick then put over the fire. We had a barrier it was a square around the fire It took a long time for my damper to cook I sat there for along time until Whare Warane said "your damper is cooked" I was happy because I wanted to eat.

We had rock climbing the next day, it was fun because they had walls with shapes,sea creatures,king Kong, jack and the bean stalk,Indiana Jones. I climbed them all but never made it up to any of them but it was enjoyable.

On Friday we came on a bus to the lagoon my group the Responsibles rushed of on to the hydro-slide first it was fun and I was dripping with water all over me. I thought I was going to drown but I didn't it was scary but fun because hole was big and black and I thought it was scary but really fun.

I felt good after all the things we did at camp it was FUN and was as fun as a monkey who go a bunch of bananas. I was happy at camp and excited.

This term at extension we are writing recipes and the one recipe we are doing is one that includes potatoes. My recipe I am doing is mashed potatoes we are doing recipes on rice bananas,appetizers,any favorite food from your country.

The other thing we do is garage band. Nearly every Thursday we make a little tune or little piece of music we do our music on instruments our first one we did was the drums and the second piece of music we are going to do is on a bass guitar.My track sounded a little bit cool but you really couldn't hear the drums. We do this because so that we can hear what other schools have made in other countries.

We are also working on in groups about restaurants we need to know a lot of information about the restaurant we are working on like the address the capital of the country like if came from Vietnam and the phone number.

We are also on Google earth to help us on the information on the project we are working on like our restaurant project we are doing and sometimes we even tutu around with it.
