On Monday straight away after morning tea my maths class goes to the hall  for basketball. My coaches names are Vinnie and Shanice. We sat down, Vinnie holds a basketball and shows us some skills. After that it’s time to have fun.  

The skills I have learnt are how to shoot properly. I have  learnt to catch the ball and pass the ball. I use my left hand to dribble the ball. One game we played was called golden child. Boys go on one side and girls go on the other side for competitions. Boys throw the ball in hoop and the girls had to run. If I get the ball in the hoop I yell “STOP’’ and the girls have to stop. Then it is the next person’s turn.

When I finish basketball I feel tired and hot. My class puts their hands in a  circle and we shout “BASKETBALL” and everyone lifts up their arms. It is  fun to play basketball.

First to put the blindfolds on to play were me, Andrew, Tavake, Isaac, Shelly and Jennifer. I was nervous because I was first, it was scary. When the 1 minute started, I heard a beep. Then I had to find the pins inside the rice. It was very hard because the pins were small and I kept dropping them. After 1 minute the beeper made a beeping noise, that meant my turn was finished. Andrew got 15 pins, I  got zero.

Year 5 and 6 Camp 2015


- Use interesting vocabulary throughout paragraphs.
- Write an entertaining recount about our camp experience last week.
Last week on wednesday year five and six Camp started. Started camp. The camp was at Pt England  school. Everybody slept in tents. There were 6 groups their names were Honest Squad, Commitments, Real Dealz, True Crew, Matapono e and All Stars.

Our first activity on Wednesday was dance practice, it was for camp concert, then we had morning tea. After we ate, my group Honest Squad went to the hall for sports games. I played ping pong and basketball with my friend it was hot but it was fun. We had a filled roll for lunch in the big tent.

After lunch Honest Squad went to the bottom field by the park and played Top Town against the All  Stars. In Top Town we threw water balloons at the other team and they got really wet.  

My favourite part of  camp was going to Mangere pools. Everyone sat down in our lines when we got there. It was massive inside the pools. They had 5 pools outside. I went down the waterslide heaps of times on a square board, I was the fastest. At the deep pool people were having bombing contests. They jumped off the diving board  and splashed water   everywhere. I was sad to leave because I wanted to stay and keep swimming.
