Camp Bentzon Abseiling

Camp was the best! Especially when we went abseiling. I was shaking just thinking about it. It was finally my turn. First they had to put some kind of safety gear on me, then I had to climb, every step I took to the top was frightening. When I finally reached the top I was relieved, then I got told I had to go down. I wasn't as scared because I couldn't see the ground, except I was a bit nervous because I didn't trust the lady holding the safety rope. As I went down the abseiling tower I was imagining how high I was. My heart was pounding.
When I got to the bottom, I was glad it was all over!

Smell's like sea salt water

Taste's like salty water from the beach

Feel's like i'm all alone

Sound's like a group of violin's

Looks like everything is gone from me

Look's like everything is gone from me


Smells like melted chocolate with strawberries.

It looks like babies happily playing together.

It sounds like the sound of a dolphin when it jumps up and makes a swish sound.

It tastes like the sweetness of lollies in your mouth.

It feels like you are on the bumper cars at Rain Bows End.

Smells like roses

Looks like a nice new haircut
Tastes like chocolate mixed with marshmallows
Feels like smooth snake skin
Sounds like a seal singing

Cold and Wet

Sitting at the window looking out at that cold weather.
Little rain drops hitting the ground really fast.

It feels really cold out there.
People running everywhere.

Little kids in cosy jackets waiting under shelter.
Puddles everywhere kids jumping up and down in
huge puddles.

Looks like your face is getting red
Smells like rotten food still in the fridge
Sounds like the pounding of my heart
Tastes like salty water from the beach
Feels like you got teased by someone.

A Poem done By Jordan Called ANGRY

Smells like a train on fire
His rage is going to explode
Fists go flying and people go crazy
You could hear people going wild
It tastes like burnt cookies

The Amazing Immersion Assembly

WOW! When I first walked into class Mrs Nua looked really cool because she had a wig on and and a shopping bag dress on that she had made herself. She had pompoms and they were green everything she was wearing was green except her shoes.

So off we went to Assembly. In Assembly Mr Burt was dressed up as a dragon and he was lonely, he needed a wife, then he went over to Mrs Burt and said "here is my wife". Mr Palmer was announcing the models of Green and I really liked Mrs Lagitupu. She had the 3r's on her back which stood for REDUCE , REUSE , RECYCLE.

I really enjoyed watching Team 3 because they played a Recycling Game. They had to choose the right box to put the things from the plastic bag into . Mr Nevalagi was funny because he was telling Miss MacKinlay the wrong box to put in. At the end Miss MacKinaly won because Mrs Garden asked her where could she put the last plastic bags and if she got it right then she would get 5 bouns points. Miss MacKinlay said she would take them home and use it for her shopping. And Mrs Garden said " that was a great answer" so Mr Nevalagi lost!!

Today was cool,I loved the 'GO FOR GREEEN GIRL' and that was my teacher Mrs Nua. Her wig really did go with the dress and tights. Everyone in our class thought she looked amazing and this was the first time I had ever seen Mrs Nua in a dress. Ms Squires had a newspaper dress and it was really fancy. Mrs Squires looked really fabulous in the newspaper dress. It must have taken her a long time to create.

I felt happy because it was so cool everyone laughed.

Today was fantastic and a day that won't be forgotten, because it was a great start to the last term of the year.

There's lots to think and wonder about ....
Listen to what we think about this in Room 17 and we would be interested in YOUR opinions too!

Cross Country

I felt nervous as the 10 year old boys were up next. As we got to the start line my legs started to wiggle, my tummy tiggled like there were butterflies in it. Snap! Everyone sprinted off except for Jayden and I. When I got up to the first cone mud squeezed in to my toes.

As I got out of the school grounds, splash! Mud all over my legs...

Cross Country Training

WOW! Yesterday I felt a bit nervous as I sat down on the cold concrete waiting for the beginning of Cross Country. First we watched the new Entrants do their run, well I didn't really see them run because my view was blocked by a sea of heads in front of me, but I thought they were pretty fast.
Then I waited for our turn to run the long course. All too quickly, the time came! We had to stand up and line up on the starting line... Then Mrs Lagitupu said "On your marks, get set. GO!"
Off I went down to the tree, past Val over to the wooden monkey bars, along the fence through the gap and over the log, up on to the big field, onto the squishy mud, and finally on to the finish line.
The people who came first were Alisi in the 11 year old girls, then Simone and I can't remember who was 3rd, but I do know Brennah was fourth!
After all that I felt great! I was glad that I had finished. My training through the term had paid off!

Cross Country Training

At nine forty we had to go Cross Country Training. Everybody was complaining because we weren't aloud to wear shoes when we got to the field. Our teacher Mrs Nua was wearing bright blue gumboots .The field was soft and moist it was like standing in quick sand but with the texture of cake mix .When we started running it was like my feet were absorbing the mud .Since the field is lower on the other side the longer we ran the more softer the soil got .The first half I jogged but then I ran faster and faster I passed some people but not as much as I hoped I was coming close to the mud puddle Mr Palmer said to run through so I did that was cool .Then I ran and ran until I passed the finish line hooray .I don't know what I came, but I think I must of came somewhere in the middle of everyone who ran .Well maybe next time I'll come first, second or third.
