Burma Trail

At camp we had an activity called the burma trail. There was a year 6 burma trail and a year 5 burma trail it wasn’t as scary.

I went with Simien because he’s my best friend in the class. We were the second to last group to go.

The first group went  and after a couple of minutes later we all heard girls  screaming. When they came back it  was two more groups to go till our turn. It was finally our turn. I was shaking but I was also excited.

We went outside. My group walked up to the trail and it was really dark and spooky. Then we had to grab onto a rough rope. We started walking and there was noises coming from the trees. When I was holding on the rope I was getting ready for something to jump out but someone grabbed our legs and shook them.

Then we’d finally finished we had to duck an electric fence. We went back to the boys dorm and we had to wait for the others to come back to the dorm.

Camp

It was my first time at camp. I loved it.  We went over rope bridges. It was awesome! We swam in the river with the eels. There was a rope so we could swing off the rope into the river.  The eels were tickling my friend and me around our feet.   It was deep.  The best thing that we did was archery. We did lots of stuff, like walk around the Waihi gold mining hole. It took ages.  We went to the museum and we did an egg toss.

Perspective

Room One have been learning about perspective drawing. First we drew line drawings, then line and tone, and then A3 coloured versions.

We learned about eye level, horizon, vanishing points and parallel lines. Some of us learned about two point perspective and even three point perspective.
