Sports!! What I like about sports is that it makes me fit and makes me want to do it again and again. I also like sports because you get to compete against schools and when you win you probably will win trophies and certificates.

I love playing Netball because its fun and awesome. Netball is a ball sport played between two teams of seven players. The sport Netball is mostly played on the court with two Netball hoops at the end of the court. Each team attempts to score goals by passing a ball down the court and shooting it through its goal ring, and the winning team that has the most goals win, and when I grow up I want to be like Maria Tutaia.

My second favorite sport is badminton. I like badminton because it is fun and a little bit easy for me. The first time I started playing badminton was when I was 10, our teacher for badminton was Lorraine and Debby. We use a racket and a shuttle to play Badminton and a net, then you have a partner on one side of the net and the other person have to be on the other side.

Reading a School Journal Is Cool.

The first story I read was called "The Shark Man". It is about a man named Ian Lauder, he loves to look and take photos of Sharks. How to stay safe near the Sharks? Well what you should do is work in a cage, tie it to a boat, and then the Sharks can't get in.

Camp! Day 1-2

Well guess what next week on the 12th to the 14th of March the year’s 7/8 have camp. I’m so ecstatic and excited about it because we are going to doalot of cool things like sleeping and eating and also doing activities. The main thing about it is having fun with your friends and teachers. I really hope that everyone will have a great time at camp and will be happy and not sad.

Old School Games.
The first activity we did was Old School Games with Mr Harris. The first game we played was with balloons and string, what we had to do was blow up the balloon and wrap the string around it, then we had to tie it around our leg then start popping each others balloons. After that we played a game called Captain on deck, it was a really cool game because lots of people lost and they would have to stand by the stage and stay there until the whole game was finished.

Amazing Race.
When we were inside the Markey waiting for all the kids to come Mr Barks was showing us a sling shot that he made and a little ball made out of paper. He said that we had to hit the buckets that have 10,20,50 and 100 and those will be the points that we get and if it went inside the bucket we would double the number. So we started making our sling shot with a stick and string and also Tyre rubber (witch was the sling to hold the ball and aim it to the right direction. The next activity we did for amazing race was that we got into a group of six and went different ways to find stuff to make an egg. First Turuhira and I went down to the beach and had to find a sign that has a star and there will be wood there, the other couples went to the GI swimming pools and got given a little block of wood, then at the bakery we got and egg, and at the office we got matches and at the tree we got a big can and ran straight to where Mr Barks and Mrs Langitupu were. We had to make a tea then put the block on the inside it and lit the little block thing on fire and put the tin on it and crack the egg, then it would be cooking and ready.

When we went to do some boxing in the breeze with these 3 men we had to put boxing gloves on and the other person had to put something on I forgot what it was called. Then we did some boxing but Turuhira and I got into trouble a few times because we were hitting each other with the gloves but we had fun doing boxing and hitting each other with it. It was
so fun but we had to move on to our next rotation.

Camp 1

Waking up early was a hard thing to do for me, Mrs Nua woke us up by saying "Hidee, Ho Campers," and we would haft to say back to her "Hidee Ho Mrs Nua" After that we woke up and went out side on the field to do some Jump Jam we did about 5 songs and then we went into the Mar key to sit down for breakfast. Then we had to go and get ready for our first activities, our first activity was food preparation, what we had to do was get into 5 groups of 5 and then one person had to search up a recipe for scones and the other had to get the food from Mrs Telea, she was like a shop keeper. Then we had to combine the ingredients together to make it look like dough. After that we got the rolling pin and started rolling the dough out, and then next Jarna had to cut it into pieces, then Dakota took it into the the oven to cook for 15-20 min. After it was all cooked we got it out the oven and spreaded cream and jam and butter on our yummy scones.
