Camp Keswick

We were at Rotorua at Keswick because we were doing Camp for 3 Days. I was excited to go to Camp. At Keswick it was cool because we had great times there. The Boys slept at the Lodge and The girls slept in rooms. It was a long drive from Auckland To Rotorua.  

My boring part of camp was going to the Bushwalk. It was so long we had to walk up and down, I was so tired. But I kept on walking and then at the end it was so tiring. And It wasn't fun at all. I wanted some water because I had a dryed throat and it was so hot.  

My favourite part of Camp is the Luge because we were driving in these car and racing down the hills and turning. It was actually my first time in the Luge. It was Amazing at Camp and I wanted to do it again. I went in the Luge twice.

Net-Book Reflection

The Special thing I have Learned from my teacher this year is how to use a netbook and how to look after a net-book. The other special thing I have learnt for my teacher this year is to put my writing and other staff on my blog for the first time to show the whole world what I have learnt at Pt England School.          

The Significant thing I have learnt all by myself online is using Google because it sometimes help me to find answers and finding what's going on around the world. The other significant thing I have done by myself is to use Google Drive for writing stories instead of writing on paper and Pencil.

The thing I have learnt this year from my friend is how to be friendly to others and to find about new staff. My other thing I have learnt this year with my friend is how to find answers and question in Kiwi Kids News.

Mohammed and Max's Draft Writing

“Oh no it is Saturday Morning, guests are coming over”. I sprung out of bed and headed straight to the kitchen.
“Ok, I’m gonna make pancakes, have I bought the maple syrup”. HMMM?
I searched in the cupboard, lucky I had half of last times left over. “It is really hot” I flung the big window’s open wide, BANG!

“Open the door we are here”replied the guests. “Ok” I said. “How was your day” I said. “It was a great day” the guests answered . “Come on in”

BREAKFAST IS READY! . “Yeh  I can smell that yummy pancake”replied the guests. As we entered the kitchen, My eyes were about to pop out.

My First Day At School

I had butterflies fluttering in my stomach my head started to dropped and my shoulders downswing, facing down my head and walking slowly towards the door. Then I had tears rolling down from my face. Then I saw the teacher smiling at me as I was standing still like a statue. When my brave head was raising above my shoulders, I felt like it is going to be the same as I was at kindergarten. I tried to smile to the class as I was raising my head to the classroom.
