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.

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.

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
