Year 5/6 Camp

Walt: make connections across a wide range of texts

I have visited Khaia's blog post her thoughts about camp is about the tradition to Pt England school and the first camp at school was in 1993 so Pt England school just cared for it for 21 years. Her other thought about camp was when she got the chance to be the camp leader for her team, and her group name was the All Stars.

Khaia's experience about camp is different to mine because my group name is The Real Dealz and my camp leader was Zack and Yvonne. First we did Kayaking and it was so fun, that I really enjoyed it. Then on Friday we got to go to the pools and we get to do a lot of bombs.

Malama Honua comes to Manaiakalani

On Wednesday 25th of March we were getting ready to go down to Pt England beach to see
the two waka's come in, the names of the waka's are Hikianalia, Hokule'a. We lined up and Mr Burt was praying, then the little kids had to go first then the big kids can go after them. When we got to the beach we had to sit down silently and watch the waka come in. The people that was on the waka were people that were Voyaging around the world.

When we were sitting down on the muddy grass we had to sing three waiata. The people that was on the Hokule’a waka was collected by the people that was on the boat. We had to welcome them with a Waiata and a Haka. The names of the three waiata's are E Oho, Nga Waka and He Honore.

Then when we finished singing, the Hawaiian people was greeting us in their language. We waited for them to finish singing, then it was time for us to go and meet them. Everybody was so excited to meet them, when it was time for me to meet them I was so happy that I shaked their hands and also hugged them too.

Year 5 and 6 Camp

   Guess what? last week the year 5 and 6 went to camping for three whole days. My camp group’s name was The Real Dealz. We had to camp at school.  Some of the other year five and six camp people didn’t come to camp, everybody was very excited for the year 5 and 6 campers. All of the year 5 and 6 had to sleep with other kids. Our camp leaders was Zackariah and Yvonne.

Activity 1:
     On the same day that we had to go to school on Wednesday, it was time for us to go down to Pt England Reserve so then we can go kayaking with Mr Burt.  When we were at Pt England Reserve we saw Mr Burt, Mr Kelle and also two lovely ladies.  We had to put our bags and towel away so then we can’t get our stuff wet, then these two young mens was showing us what to do and how we can get inside the kayak.   My partner was Alisha and we were waiting for the two seat kayak’s, when they were available I went up to Mr Burt and was asking him that me and my partner wanted to go into the kayak. When we got inside the kayak we paddled furiously in our kayak to try and stay out of danger.

Activity 2:   
     When it was Thursday Afternoon the Real Dealz group had to go to camp cooking with Mrs Jarman. But the thing was that only the girls can go with Mr Goodwin to the kitchen, but the boys had to stay with Whaea Saffron so then they can use some sticks to practice with. So then we were following Mr Goodwin to go to the kitchen and cook with Mrs Jarman, when we got to the kitchen Mrs Jarman was telling us to find a partner so then we can help each other with some cooking. My partner was Alisha but then another girl didn't have a partner so then me and my partner Alisha was in three’s. Mrs Jarman gave us a piece of paper which had some ingredients for us to make, then Mrs Jarman was saying to us that today we will be making some Chocolate chip cookies. When I heard Mrs Jarman say that I was full of excitement. When we finished we had to put our trays inside the oven, but first we had to wait for Mrs Jarman, we followed Mrs Jarman into the place where all of the teachers gathers up and talks.  Mrs Jarman went and put our tray into the oven and we had to wait for our cookies to be cooked.

Activity 3:   

It was night time, before we were going to sleep we had to follow our camp teacher into a classroom but two groups had to come with our group. The classroom that we could go in and watch some movies was in Mr Baxendine's classroom, Mr Goodwin was trying to press ok on the remote but he never knew how to control it properly. So then he went and pulled out the plug but when he did it made a loud noise,  he told one of the adults to go outside and look for Mr Baxendine when Mr Baxendine entered the classroom we waited for him to make the sound and the Tv work. Then Mr Goodwin tried again and it worked. The movie that we were watching was called The Lego Movie, the first part was when Emmet the builder was always following the rules. Then Emmet started talking to his food friends,  when he was about to walk home he saw a girl and her name was Lucy. When Lucy went and took off her hoodie she started moving her head side by side and Emmet was just in love with her.  When the movie was finished we had to go and lineup outside of the classroom and wait for our camp teachers, then I was looking for my two buddies and there names are Yvonne, Kerstein. When we got into our tent we were eating some food silently so then the secretary can’t hear us eating at night time.

Free Time:
On Friday our last day of camp we were getting dressed into our togs because we were going to Mangere Pools to have a very long swim. We had to get into our group lines, then we had to line up in the breeze the first group that went onto the bus first was the All stars. Then it was my group the Real Dealz when we hopped onto the bus I went and put on my glasses because the sun was going into my eyes until I heard a voice on the other side. I turned my head around and Junior was saying to me “Roimata I like your glass” then I replied back to him “Thank you”. While we were on the bus there were people chatting to each other until the All stars were singing some songs. Then when we got to Mangere Pools we had to line up outside and wait, but we had to eat some apples before we entered the Pools. Then when we entered the pools we had to sit down and grab our togs so then we can get changed in it. Then we were allowed to go inside the pools. When I hopped inside the pool it was freezing cold but then I had to get use to swimming inside the cold freezing water. After that the bombing pool was open and everybody was so excited to do a lot of bombs. Until Mr Goodwin came up and he was going to do a bomb, Mr Goodwin went and did a back-flip and then he landed in the freezing cold deep water.


My favourite thing about camp was when we got to go to the kitchen and make some Chocolate chip cookies with Mrs Jarman. I hope that next time we can do more baking of different kind of cookies, and also more kayaking. My other favourite thing about camp was watch some movies with my friends and also with my camp group. I am very excited for next years Camp.

Holiday Photo's

While it was still the school holidays my mum and dad was taking pictures of us and what we were doing. So I hope that you will like the photo's. While it was still the school holidays I was still in Aitutaki, I asked my dad for I was allow to go with him onto the kayak and catch some fish for us because we will be having fish for dinner tonight.

Then my dad said to me yes I was so happy that I went and hoped inside the kayak. Then my dad said to me that we will be going near the corals because that is where you can find heaps of fish and also big fish. I went and put a small fish onto the hook and waited for any fish to come and eat it , until for a while I felt something pulling the hook then that was my chance to get the fish.

Here is a picture of the fish that I caught in Aitutaki. 

Catfish at Omaru Creek

Walt: Have you ever seen a Catfish at Omaru Creek?

My activity that I had to do was to go and find some information, if there is any Catfish inside the creek and what they look. Then we had to name the body parts. Then we had to write in if some Catfish are good for our creek and what it looks like.

My Cool Thing

My Favourite movies that I enjoy watching is Major Payne. My favourite parts of the movie is when this man went and said something wrong then Major Payne went and digged everybody into the garden and started watering their heads with the hose. When it was morning Major Payne told them to dress up in girls dresses and jog in them.

While we were watching my brother went and changed the movie and he started to listen to some music, while we were listening to some music my favourite song popped up and the name is Uptown Funk, me and my little sister was listening while dancing. When the song was finished my brother got in trouble by my mum and he had no choice but to change the song and carry on watching the movie.

When we were still watching I went to my mum and said “Mum can I get some chips” then she replied back to me “Yes you can get some chips but share it with your sister” so then I went and grabbed some chips and poured it into a big bowl so then it can be enough to share between us. When the movie was finished me and my little sister was playing tekken 6, while we were playing my sister chose Zafina and I chose Alisa. Me and my sister was fighting but my sister Mamarei was being rough on the controller.

I was getting angry so then I went and chose my favourite player and her name was Christie, while I was playing I went kicked her and she fell when I beat her and then she started crying so then she went inside the room. Then I was jumping up with joy and started being so happy, until I had to beat my cousin and his name was Papa I didn’t really wanted to challenge him but I had no choice so then my cousin chose Paul and I chose Christie again. We were playing until Papa beat me 1’s then when it came to the second challenge I beat him by doing a kick and then his player fell back then I got victory.

Then It was time to go sleep because I had to get up very early so then I can go to the birthday on Sunday.

So then I had fun in the end.
