At camp we did bridge building. In my group we made 3 models. Our first model was a failure our second model was ok, but our 3rd was great. We got the baby across first time and it was so great that Charlotte made us carry Theo and surprisingly it worked. Then we showed the class.

Abseiling is a form of roping yourself down from a mountain top or a canyon rim.
Abseiling is fun to do and helpful from hunting to hiking.
Unfortunately the down side to this exhilarating sport is that it causes 25% (1 of 4) climbing deaths. Mostly from not securing an anchor, or not putting your harness on properly when going down canyons mountains and steep embankments. So for budding abseilers remember safety tips and bear in mind that these tips can save your life.

When the middles arrived at Kina we put up the tents, our tent was a fun most. People found it hard and fun. Our tents where big. Tavania’s Dad Glen has a big tent so does Sean G’s tent .
It was such good fun when me, Meila and Tavania went to look in Glens tent he was the only one sleeping in it. Tavania had a smaller tent she slept with Luca. Sean’s was a little bit smaller than Glens. He slept with Josh,Thomas H, Jed and Theo. I liked going on camp it was fun.
All the tent groups got a job to do and my group made dinner. We had hamburgers with the filling , lettuce, tomato, meat, carrots, cheese,tomato suce and cucumber, it was delicious!

Flying Rat - by Thomas B
The flying rat is a 18 metre high swing which is basically a team puling up 1 of them . If the person at the front of the line is to light he could be pulled up with the other person. This is what I said it was scary at first but when I got up there I didn't want to come back down again. It was a sunny day so you could see every one else. Second time it was swinging which I loved.

I went abseiling at camp.
What do you know about abseiling?
First you have to put a harness on.
Then you clip a karabiner onto your harness
and put the rope through the figure eight.
You need a glove on your right hand so
that you don’t burn your hand on the rope.
You hold the rope in your right hand behind your bottom
and carefully feed the rope through it. Then you can slide,
jump and bounce down the hill.
I wanted to do it again even though it was scary.

Pogo and Mister.
Pogo and Mister came for the day. pogo came Tuesday and mister came on Thursday
me and Meila walked mister and we did three lap’s around the school 1 walking and 2
running. Water went up mister’s leg. It looked like he had a bath. Mister was so so so so
wet so I did not want to cuddle him. His face was not wet and his back is not wet either. His
tummy was as wet as a beetroot trout that has been washed under a tap. Pogo and Mister are the colour white. Pogo is very funny because he always jumped on Mr Searle. When I was the first one at school pogo jumped on my lap. Mister is a good guard dog and he barked at Jenny when she came to see us. Pogo and mister are brothers. they have the same mum. she lives down the road. That is where pogo and mister came from.
Pogo and Mister.
Pogo and mister came to visit, they are both brothers. Pogo came to visit on Tuesday and mister came on Thursday. People in our class got to walk the dogs. Mister is really fast at running, but Pogo isn’t so fast .We got to play ball with Mister before school.Mister is younger than Pogo and they are both brothers. Mister has a pink nose and Pogo has a black nose. Mister is a faster than Pogo even though Mister is younger.They are both white Lowchen dogs.They both like cuddles and to sit on peoples laps. Pogo got really tired when he came. They liked scrounging peoples food which Mr Searle is trying to stop them doing!
And they were born down the road from school in a yellow bach but they are white and there mum was golden and thats where they came from.
Pogo and Mister
were at school last tuesday and thursday.
Lots of people wanted to walk him and I got to play fetch with him, and walked them both. They sleep under Mr Searle’s desk when we are working. We had them in at different days. They were in for the whole day.

Luca spent his $10 Mahana dollars at Whaea Jane's six pin bowling, hoping for some fun and and also a chance to win the big prizes.
Thomas, Josh, Oscar,Leah and Elizabeth are on hand as eagle eyed judges. Looks like Luca got four down, but sadly missed out on the last two. Remember to tell businesses what they can do to make you happier with their product. We all need to listen to what our customers want from us when we operate a business.
Did any-one notice how quickly customers will complain to their friends if they think they have been 'ripped off"?

We watched a video of Billy who had no friends. He finally found some friends.
Also did a feeling thing where we choose which side whether we like it or not - being excited, sad, grumpy and lots more.
If Mr Neal said only 10 people could go to a circus would this make you happy or sad?
Or if you couldn't go home how would you feel? (Stuck at school forever!)
