Camp Benson Writing


I'm very excited to go to camp and I'm very looking forward to it. I can't wait to do Sailing Because My brother was King of Sailing Now its my turn to shine. :-)

Camp Benson is a camp on a Island called ‘Kawau Island’. The way we get there from school is we go for a 1 hour and 30 minute drive to Sandspit where we go on a ferry to Kawau Island.

I'm looking forward to bombing off the pond tone, My favourite bomb is called the staple bomb.
I want to bomb off the pond tone and test out my new bomb called the mangere. I'm also looking forward to having  fun and enjoy it at Camp Benson.

Sailing will be the Activity I'm looking forward to and I think I'll Be Pretty good at it. I'm looking forward to it because I like racing with my friends and I would like to know more about how it works.

Im looking forward to it and Im getting ready for this awesome Opportunity that the school gave us.

Couplet Poem :-)


When I went to camp I was so excited I got a Cramp.
I walked into the Cabin my bunk was Damp.
As I was getting ready to sleep, I turned off the Lamp.
I was so excited When I went Camp.
When we finished camp I gave all the helpers big Thanks.

In summer we went to the Beach.
While it was still summer our teacher still wanted to teach.
It was so hot my mum gave the family an Ice block each.
It was so hot I felt like I was Boiling in a pot.
I drank very cold water and went for cold swims because it was hot.

The Bush... :-)

There were were two adults named John and Jasmine, they were babysitting their friends baby named rose. One of the John had to go to the shops to buy some baby food and some milk for the baby. While she was gone, jasmine wanted to go for a bushwalk, then they left.

When they were at the start of the bush it was very sunny, but then it got too sunny. When they were walking, 3 trees caught on fire and it was surrounding Jasmine and Rose, Jasmine sprinted through the gap but she tripped and she was in danger with the baby. When John came back from the store, He read the note that Jasmine left so he called her but she did not answer.

John drove to the bush and he saw that Jasmine and Rose was surrounded by the flames the he ran back home and got the fire extinguisher then drove as fast as he can to the bush and put it off and then said “Are you fine Jasmine” then Jasmine said “Yes”. Then they got out of the bush walk and drove back home.

I think that Jasmine and the baby would have died there if John didn't come but I still think this story is still great to read. :-)

Sir Edmund Hillary....

Milles is Justin's friend, they met at school, He mostly spends his time in the library reading books about science, and sometimes he spends time on the Computer. Kids wont pick on him, but laugh at him because he's a bit different to Justin.

Great Grandpa's friend Eddie, was different to other men in the world war 2 too. Whenever People had breaks and had a little talk he'd always bike ride to Mount Taranaki and Mount Egmont. Everybody used to laugh at him because he was so different. Then he became the first man to climb Mount Everest. His name was Eddie short for Sir Edmund Hillary.

Olympic's day...:-)

Yesterday I had the mosts Coolest day in term 3, as you know that the topic for this term is Go for gold which is the Olympics. Every body were split up into teams which are in the Olympics, I was in the Sweden team and Samson was our leader. At the beginning all the teams were marching around the court and I was holding up our flag.

At the first games we played rounders, short for Baseball but it wasn't really rounders. The twist was that we had to kick the ball as far as we can. When we started, wales had got the pen and they received and we were fielding. I was first base and everybody else were on the other bases. They hit the ball and in total at the all I got 9 of them out.

At the end we were all tired and hungry, well on I was the only one that was, but at least we had fun for once right, That was the best-est day in term 3 History and on Friday NZ has Loud shirt day for the death people. :-)

My Weekends

In the weekend I went over to my aunt's house to go visit my aunty who just came from Aussie.  The things we did at my aunt's house was kickback have a feed and just play games and watch tv. After that we went to the Dunkirk park with my little cousin and my brother and played on the slide, the swing and the seesaw. The last place we went was beach, and we just kicked back again and then we went to the shops to get some fire wood to light up at her house.


After that we went back to my mom's house to have a rest, and to just have a sleep and have dinner, which was chicken nibbles with coke. The next day we went to the pools and went to the small pool, to help my little cousin swim there, after that we went to get some Mcdonalds and some wendys. Then after that we went to the field to go play some kicks with my uncle.

But now it was time for my aunty to go and I am really gonna miss her. It was a long drive to the airport but she had to go back to aussie cause she lived there but she just comes here often to visit the kids. But now I miss her because it's like boring without her and my little cousin was cryin when she left, but really I do Miss her. :-)

Medley Relay


In the medley relay for swimming, there are four different swimming strokes: backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle. And did you know that the medley relay is one of the most watched events in the olympics just like the 100m Sprints. :




The Aim for the medley relay event is to complete the four strokes in order to win. So you have to start off with the backstroke and swim the length of the pool which is 50 m. But there this is the part when they need a lot of stamina they they have to double the length and do it again. But when it's the next persons turn they have to touch the edge, there is a judge next to them if he sees them touch it then he tells the next person to jump in the pool.




The Equipment and the Swimwear that is used for the medley relay is very tight. They put Jons on which is a suit for swimming. they put on a cap as well to reduce drag and so nothing annoys when you are swimming







The skills that you need to know is that you need to know how to swim. Plus you need to know how to do the strokes that you are going to do when it's your turn. The strength that you need to have to have is A little bulky. You have to have stamina to last and go aster throughout the relay.





I think about this sport as an active sport because everybody gets a to have a turn at something. And my favourite stroke is the breaststroke but you always need to have a lot of stamina.

Why do bees sting?



If a bee feels provoked or if people it is then alarmed and uses it self defence weapon. There is a rule it can only sting if the bee is Threatened.



The sting at the end of the bees body is really a fine tube it is barbed too. If a bee stings it could drop a little poison into the human body.



The bee only stings Once because if it gets knocked off then he would get badly injured then die. Sometimes they say it naturally pulls it on sting out and they might live too.



Sometimes, a bee can sting much as often as we allow it, if we do not knock them off the place they stung.

Reflecting on my Art.(Cafe Terrace)


I am reflecting on  my painting that I have started copying 2 Weeks ago it is called Cafe Terrace. This painting was painted by Vincent Van Gogh when he painted Starry Starry Night.(1888)

I think that the similarities between my work and Van Gogh’s is the sky. It is almost similar but its just that my colour for the sky is dark, and the one that is on Van Gogh's painting is lighter,  I did not put any white to make it lighter.The contrasts  between my painting and Van Gogh's are almost the same but its always one thing that it's too dark.

The mood for this painting is cozy and warm and peaceful. Love this mood because this is what I like doing just relaxing sipping on tea or coffee eating a pie  lets get back to the story. The message is that is nice and peaceful and no temper or anger coming to the Cafe Terrace.

The thing Im not happy with is that My work always has dark places from where the light places has to be. And It is because I always forget to put white and thats what Im not happy with.

All of my thoughts overall is that my painting is realistic and I think I will improve it by remembering to use more white.

Starry Starry night painting.

Swimming writing 2012


As I entered the pools, I caught the smell of chlorine and chemicals.

Flutter boards keep people from sinking, and keeps people balanced at swimming.

Every Time we are about to swim, we always have to be rinsing off all the dirt before we go
swimming in the pool.

As soon as I got out of the pool is was shivering cold.

When I was swimming, I saw ripples on the surface of the water.

The first session of swimming was breathing and It was difficult for some people.

I dived in the pool and it made a big splash to the Instructor on accident.

Starry Starry Night writing marks.

Hey did you know that one of the most famous painters painted the well known and valuable piece of art Starry Starry Night? And you know what that painting reminds me of? New life and deat. Here is some more of what I notice:

In the foreground is the steeple and the curvy cypress tree. The first thing that I saw when looked at the painting I noticed that there were two pointy objects the stand out to keep the painting balanced. The object that stood out the most out of the steeple and cypress tree was the tree because it caught my eye as soon as I looked at the painting.
Shinning Bright stars on a really exaggerated sky the main colour is blue and the colour that mostly stands out is bright yellow. I like the dark colour blue because it was bright for the swirl in the sky and dark blue reminds me of anger and death but the light blue reminded me of new life and happiness.

I like the painting that Van Gogh did and the way I look back at his painting is that it is very balanced. Looking at the two objects is what made it balanced and the way I look Back at my writing is that I have every thing that makes a paragraph and im proud of my writing.

Vincent Van gogh story

The things that I know about Van gogh is what Im going to share with you today, I hope you would love my story about the things I found out about this artist.

The first thing I ever found out about Vincent van gogh is that he was a man with a sad life, and his life was so sad that he cut off his ear and sent it to his girlfriend. He was born in 1853 but died in a gunshot wound in 1890 that was awhile ago. The person who shot him was himself and suffered pain lonely in his room lying on the floor dead.

Here are some paintings he painted while he was still alive:.
Sunflowers

Vincent Van Goghs Sunflowers

Here are my Markings for my writing.

A extremely famous painter Vincent van gogh painted the well known picture sunflower. The sunflower was oil painted and did you know it was 73 x 92.  it was well known in 1888 when van gogh painted it.

The lines on Vincent van gogh’s painting were very thick bold lines not like normal one’s that other painter do. Van gogh’s texture is thick and bold not like the other artist that paint. The space that van gogh uses is that there is no spare spaces and that the colour is vibrant and colourful but show the colour yellow which means happiness.

The way I think about Van Gogh's paintings about the Sunflowers is that the paintings look very realistic. His painting are all beautiful and, I think it would be a awesome decoration for Paul Gauguin in his room. Why I think its interesting is because it reminds me of young and death and also happiness.

I think Van Gogh painted it because he was happy and he was so excited to decorate Paul Gauguin’s room and he was a very sad man with a sad life. I think that Van Gogh thought that it was going to be perfect for Paul Gauguin’s room. Why he painted it is because he was excited thats why he put yellow in it.

The way I look back at the writing I just did it just that it made sense and all the things that would make a paragraph. I think Van gogh lived a sad life, and some times he was cheerful and i think his sun flower paintings a very valuable. He got lots of money 40,000,000,000 dollars is the record.

My day at swimarama Antonio

We had such a wonderful day at Swimarama the day was so successful day and we had lots of fun, Enjoy my story :)

Finally we have our day to refresh ourselves and be able to enjoy the day we have together with our cousins Paula and Sika. As we arrived at Swimarama, we just sat down and waited. One thing was sad, the outdoor pool was closed. When we entered the indoor pool it was so big that there was an whole camp inside.  Imagine if it was outside, it would have been very small.

When we were ready to swim, we were so cold that we wanted to go into a hot pool and it came true because we did go into a small pool warm pool, it was so relaxing. As we were swimming these kids came and asked us if we wanted to play rugby in the pool, and we disagreed because my Aunt said that it was so dangerous that it might hurt little kids on the head.

WOW Guess how starving I was, I was 100’/. hungry and guess what we had for lunch? It was packs filled with tuna sandwiches, chocolate bars, bananas, doritos and a drink it was so delicious. After we eat, we have a 10 minute break and we have to have a rinse before we go back into the pool. We asked our Aunt if we can go into the big pool and we couldn’t because Sika was so small he couldn't swim.

The way I feel and look back at my day at Swimarama is that it had good conclusion and i think it hooked people in and the audience. I hoped you enjoyed my story :)

Maud Island Frogs.

Maud Island frogs, are one of the four frogs that a native to New Zealand, and they a different to other frogs.

Normal frogs live in water but this Maud Island frog doesn't. The reason why Maud Island frogs don’t live in water, is because they don’t have webbed feet thats why they live in damp places. Maud Island frogs live at Marlborough Sounds, and they live in bushes, trees, steep hills, under rotten logs and above sea level.

Maud Island frogs are carnivores, eating Beetles, Insects, larvae and worms. The way that Maud island frogs catch their food is not similar to any other frog. They catch them by pouncing and shoving them in their mouth EWW!!.

Their predators for Maud Island frogs A lizards. They sneak up on the frogs when they a busy then they get them very fast like a snap.There are only a few Maud Island Frogs. because the rats from another habitat, brought the disease to the Island that why they got rid of all the rats at Maud Island.

I really hope that these frogs can survive the Island and also that the rats can find another place to stay instead of spreading diseases around Maud Island.

Frankie My best friend.

Frankie is a good friend because he is a good athletic kid.  he is a good wise man to talk too. he is a honest man and he is careful to others.

How to care for a baby bird.

Year 5&6 camp.


On a beautiful sunny week, our Yr 5 & 6 students had a three day camp on. It started on Wednesday, and went until Friday which was the last day. On our camp there were 6 teams and we had our items too, which was awesome and I hope you like my recount.


The thing I am was looking forward to Is roller blading and kayaking. The reason why I was looking forward to roller blading was because I have not done roller skating in 2 years and I need to improve in it. And the reason Im looking forward to kayaking is because I have not been able to go swimming and do kayaking at all.

The thing that I remember being funny, was when we did our item for the concert. Mr Somerville forgot to cut the music, and we did not have moves for that part. So we just followed Grace’s moves, and we survived it. We had a good reaction thanks to Grace.

My goal for camp was to change my behaviour and improve my kayaking skills. The reason my goal Is to change my behavior is because I was most told off then before. And I achieved it, and my kayaking I achieved that goal too because I kayaked to the red pole and back to the beach that's how I achieved it.

Well its been a tough week, and everyone was really tired from that long day at Swimarama. The thing I was most sad about is camp ending.

I miss camp already.

Antonio Camp for 2012

Did you know that we only have two more sleeps before camp?


Bursting in to happiness as we only got 2 more sleeps before camp, well we do and its going to be more funner then the other one we had. The thing I'm looking forward to is kayaking because your can explore the sea and go very far away.


The thing I'm quite worried about is get lost. Why I'm worried is because I might go the wrong way and kayaking in case I might go very far a way.


My goal for this years camp, is to get better at my kayaking skills and to get better at my table tennis skills :).
