Camp week

The On Monday we went to Bledsoe park to go for a bushwalk. We had a clipboard of clues that our group needed to find. It was challenging to find some of the last ones. Then we paddled in the stream, and some people made a dam out of rocks. I had to be patient because I had to wait for the rocks to put on. Afterwards we hopped back on the bus and went to kids republic for a play and rock climb. It was soooo hot! It felt like I was being cooked in an oven!
This is us making the dam

Tuesday was construction day, and we did construction rotations in poutama.The weight challenge was challenging because we had limited resources. I had to be persistent because our tower kept on falling over in the height challenge.
This is our group with the ozobotz

Wednesday was art day. We created forest creatures and a forest background for a mural in the hub.
We also enlarged little pictures to big pictures with Brenda. I had to work together to help get some hard pictures finished. I think next time I would of had a bigger group for the height challenge.

This is the enlargement picture

Thursday was water day. We had water rotations around the school. I had to listen in water rockets because it was hard to get it right without instructions. It was challenging on the water slide because the wind was blowing it away.
This is us making a train

Friday was camp out day. We had to share people among the tents so everyone had a tent to be in. I felt disappointed when we had to put them down because it was fun. I enjoyed cooking the s'mores and having the fire men come.

Camp week personal goals

🔹Mon. Bushwalk/Climb&Play I can get a little grouchy when I don't have a good sleep and I go on bushwalks.
🔹Tue. Construction day. I'm not very good at construction, so I'm going to need to ask lots of questions about our activities. 
🔹Wed. Art day. I need to persevere if I mess up on something.
🔹Thu. Water day. Making the water slide, I need to make sure I work as a team.
🔹Fri. Camp out day. I need to be patient when we pack up because I helped make the mess.
