On Tuesday the year six went to camp at Kawau Island some of the year six that did not get to go stayed behind with us the year fives. It was really quite on tuesday since almost all of the year six had gone when I arrived to school Miss Scanlan had to do all of the rolls she did room 8,7,6 rolls because all of us were in different classes then after the roll all of us went to Miss Scanlan class.

First we played a game of chinese whisper and then after we had to line up and we went to the other side of team 4  and we recorded us singing nursery songs for our animation for the juniors and for everybody to see. Later when we did that we came back to our side and ate our morning tea, after morning tea we did dance practice. Then after we did dance practice we went back to our class rooms and then we went on cool maths games.

Then on Wednesday we did the rolls again and then we went off and we went to do our maths whizz like normal we also got to play on cool maths games again yay!! It was morning tea so we went to our tables with our bags and ate our morning tea. When morning tea was over we went inside of the classroom and we watched the news when the news were over we got into two lines outside and the teachers put us into little groups and then one by one we went in our lines to the bus because we were going on a trip to KIWI KAPERS. When we arrived at kiwi kapers we went through a big red door that led to a theater we sat in our chairs and we watched the orchestra playing their instrument (woodwind, percussion, brass family and the string family.

When the show was over we went back on the bus and went to our school but one thing that happened on the bus there was a car accident and it made us a bit slow to get back to our school. When we got back to our classes we played a orchestra game and when we finished the whole game we got to play cool maths games.

Tha Zin Julie's Race

Free photo: Dogs, Sled, Team, Dogsled, Teamwork - Free Image on ...

    he dogsled race was about to begin. Julie’s team of dogs was lined up at the starting gate. Julie stood behind them. The air was so cold that she could see her breath. Other teams were lined up, too, and the dogs were excited. Julie kept her eyes on the clock. At exactly ten o’clock, she and the other racers yelled, "Mush!" The dogs knew that meant "Go!" They leapt forward and the race began!

Julie had trained months for this race, and she hoped she and her dogs would win. Hour after hour, day after day, Julie’s dogs pulled the sled in order to get in shape for the race.

Now, they ran over snowy hills and down into frozen valleys. They stopped only to rest and eat. They wanted to stay ahead of the other teams. The racers had to go a thousand miles across Alaska. Alaska is one of the coldest places on Earth. The dogs’ thick fur coats helped keep them warm in the cold wind and weather. In many places along the route, the snow was deep. Pieces of ice were as sharp as a knife. The ice could cut the dogs’ feet. To keep that from happening, Julie had put special booties on their feet.

At first, the dogs seemed to pull the sled very slowly. They were still getting used to the race. But on the third day out, they began to pull more quickly. They worked as a team and passed many of the other racers. Once, one of the sled’s runners slid into a hole and broke. Julie could have given up then, but she didn't. She fixed it and they kept going.

When they finally reached the finish line, they found out that they had come in first place! It was a great day for Julie and her dogs.
