Year 5/6 Camp Recount

WALT: organise my ideas into paragraphs and link them together

Have you had camp at your school before? The year 5 and 6 gets an opportunity to camp outside of there school field. We camped outside the brezzie and shivering weather. But at Thursday and Friday it was hot and melting. The first thing we did was our concert dance and our chart.

When camp was starting we had to line up and sit down into our camp groups. Then our principle Mr Burt came and was having a interview with us about our behavior and saying that we are at camp not school.  
                                                                          Marked by Kura
The groups were The Commitments, Matapono e, Honest Squad, All Stars, Real Dealz and Trew Crew. My favourite highlight of the year was kayaking. It was so fun and it was my first time kayaking by myself. The teacher who took us for the kayaking was Mrs Garden. She told us the instructions for kayaking and how to sit on it too. Mrs Garden said that we can have lots of turns but we had to wait first.

My second highlight of the year was roller blading, table tennis, playing basketball and listening to songs. I tried rollerblading but I can’t balance properly so I took it off and went and have a rest. I went and played table tennis with my friend Inez.

Camp is fun and exciting. Its also fun when you play activities too. I learned how to play the game killer zone because that was one of our activities. It was hard to do but I had lots of fun.

This task asked me to write a recount in paragraphs and to link them together. Our teacher told us to write a 1 simple sentence 1 question and 1 complex sentence.

News Paper Tower Chalenge

WALT: write a detailed introduction with hook and orientation. 

Have you ever built a tower out of newspaper in your class or at home? In our literacy class we sat down and Mr Goodwin our teacher told us to put netbooks on a table, so we could make them. He was a bit crazy because I think he drank to much coffee in the morning.

This is how it went down. Our teacher told us to be in groups of 5. In my group was Vinolia, Rima, Sulieti, Kura including me. Each group gets a long piece of masking tape, lots of papers and scissors given to our groups. Mr Goodwin put on the timer. We had 8 minutes

We built the tower by rolling the paper and putting it together but it didn't work, we tried making a base but it didn’t work. The other groups had theirs up we were the only one still putting it up. Mr Goodwin said “ 8 minutes over”. We all stopped building our towers.

Our teacher Mr Goodwin had to judge our towers. My group wasn't checked because our one was ruined. He measured to groups, he got a measuring ruler and one team won it.

Our task was to write a recount about News paper towers.

I have visited Sela's blog post because it had more detail and makes me read more. I have camp tomorrow so I am looking forward to go to the camp. Did you know that our school is the only school that was doing camp in the ground.

I am soo excited to go to camp because I have fun with my friends. We ate yum dinners and breakfast.

For this task we had to google search and find previous students that went to camp.
