Experience at Piha Mills Camp.













The second day of camp was really hard. My Group and I had to work together as a team to put us in smallest to tallest. We hated starting again and again because every time we try to rearrange some one always ends up falling. Then at the end we got there.

I loved the way how we worked as a team.

My maths reflection

For today’s maths session I have learnt how to solve a 2 digit number by using grouping in five.
For example ( 51 + 78 ) 70 + 50 = 120 + 8 = 128 + 1 = 129

Basketball Experience

 Bounce, dribble, bounce, dribble goes the ball “ Come on Ofa” I shouted I grabbed the ball and ran as fast as I could “Pass the ball to Rolland”. “Can you bring your team up to this cone please” asked Coach Bruce but all the leaders in front went but the team didn’t follow so then Coach Bruce turned around and said “Come on” then the whole teamed followed.

When we lined up he gave us 1 different coloured cone for each team my team got a colour white then coach Bruce said “ whatever team finishes first sit down”,Guess who won? my team. the last round we had to change coloured cones, we got green but when the round finished my group still won.

Suddenly Coach Wayne change the game into run around  half court and shoot the ball into the hoop but some kids went far from the hoop and tried to get a hop from there but they could not get it in, but then the time ran out and that was the end of basketball but before we left we said “ Thank you to coach Bruce and Wayne”,
then we left so happy everyone could not wait for the next session of basketball.

Blood Brothers Show

Year 8’s leaving to retreat “Bye Guys Bye” I said loudly “ Bye Nela” said Catherine from behind. “Okay my mum and my dad is going to drop some of us off to selwyn to see the blood brothers live, but my dad is not going to stay for the show but he will be back when the show is finished, but my mum is going to stay with us to watch the show “said Miss Gleason.

Let’s go we hopped into the car then the engine started to rumble, me, Sione-Dale, Catherine and isaiah we all went in Mrs. Gleason car. when we got there a lady took us to the office just to wait for a few minutes then we went and waited were the teachers have there lunch there was even like a little cafe or something.

Suddenly this lady came and told us that the show is ready every single one of us was excited there was even live music.
There was a man which I thought that he should be on a horror movie. The movie was about a lady giving one of babies away but she regretted what she has done then at the end the real mother told them that they were real brothers but one of her son got married a girl named linda then the other brother still liked linda but then they both died at the end.


I had allot of fun and hungry so when we got to school we started to eat then go and play then the school bell rang for us to go home.

Tennis experience

!!!HOORAY!!! Room 7 was first to play tennis. We raced to the tennis court. We saw a man standing there. He introduced himself, and his name was Marcel our instructor. Marcel asked us girls to get a tennis racket and a ball I rushed and grab a racket and ball then ran to the other side of the net, after all of us girls got our racket and ball. Then Marcel told the boys to grab a racket and ball the boys run like crazy they stood in front of us girls on the other side. We started by how to hold the tennis racket Marcel told us to hold the tennis racket the a frying pan we were practicing how to balance the ball and hit the ball with our racket.


Marcel told all of Room 7 to line up in a straight line. Marcel told us to pair up with a partner, my partner was Ofa. Marcel asked all of us if we all had a partner but Jordan didn’t so he had to partner with our teacher Mrs. Tui. Marcel told one side to drop their racket down but hold on to the ball and move up, then he told the people on the other side to move back and drop their ball so one person throws and the other hits the ball then we catch it.

Marcel blowed his whistle and that meant that we had to stop and then he said “ okay these boys are the king of the court, okay everyone please put all your racket back and also your ball” Everyone said “ohhhh” then everyone went to the side of the court to put their racket and their tennis ball back into it’s box. I said to myself man that was so fun I can not wait for the next lesson.
