The tree is narrow, scratchy and tall. I didn’t struggle to climb up the branches. I felt thrilled that I got to the top.

I climbed the rough branches. I was itchy and scratchy, grazed and tattered. I was careful and cunning, reaching out awkwardly to the next branch.
My arms and legs were weak, but I was nearly at the top of the tall tree.
I could see the leaves, I was at the top!

Last weekend me and my mum went rollerskating. When I was rollerskating I fell over and scraped my leg. Boy it was sore. It made a big mark and now it feels like sand stuck to my leg. It does not feel sore anymore.

At Camp Karakariki when the Warrior Scouts were going to climb the big tree, two girls were getting bored. While the rest were climbing the tree they thought of having some fun. So they decided to play “Under the Bambushes”. You can try it when you watch. It is fun.
Other classes – do you have any hand games that you’d like to teach us? Can you upload a video to share with us? (from Mr F)
Dads company is called Fonterra and they are the are the biggest exporter of milk products in the world. My dad is an engineer who looks after robots. This robot picks up cartons of milk powder in cans and puts them onto a pallet. It can put 50 cartons onto a pallet faster than a person can. Before it puts the cartons on the pallet it puts a slip sheet on it so the whole lot can be pushed into a big container.
