My Learning focus was to create a Recount about our school camp.
On Monday the 19th of February the whole school went to Lonsdale park for our school camp and we stayed at Lonsdale park for 2 nights and 3 in a half days.
So the first thing we did when we got to camp is we all got all of our stuff out of the vehicles we went in and then we all went to go find our cabins and at first everyone didn't know which cabins we were in.
Then we found out that there was a cabin for the big girls and the little girls and after we found the right cabin all of the of the kids unpacked all of our stuff then we all made our beds and then we got told to get dressed into our tog’s.
And then when we heard the bell we all went to the front of the lunch room and we all got told to have something from our lunch boxes for morning tea and then after that we all got told to get our bags ready because we were about to go to Matauri bay for Surf School.
And after all of the students were ready to go our principal made sure that all of the students were their so no one was left behind and after she did that she told all of the parents which kids that they have in there group and after she did that we all made our way to Matauri bay.
But before we actually made our way we had to put on our hats and we had to put sunblock on so we don’t get sunburnt and after that we finally made our way to matauri bay.
And then when we got to Matauri bay everyone got out of the car that they came in then they all got all of their stuff out and then after everyone was ready we all made our way down to the people that teaching us how to surf.
And as soon we got there we got split up into two different groups and their waas a group for the seniors and a group for the juniors but some juniors game and joined the seniors because they were basically seniors but they were still in the junior room.
So after we got into our groups the surf people asked us a couple of questions.
And then after they did that we all had to take some surfboards down to the beach and when we got down to the beach we had to follow this big line.
And at the end of the line was one of the people that were teaching us all how to surf and when we got to the end of the line we had to lay our surf boards down and we had to sit right in front of our surf boards not on our surf boards by our surfboard.
The names of the people that were teaching us how to surf was Conor,kian, Saun and they were all men and they were very nice and polite.
And then after they introduce themselves they went over the basic rules then they just told us the basic steps and then after that everyone was ready to go into the water and do some surfing.
And as soon as everyone got into the water you could see heaps of people standing up and it was really impressive and I even stood up on my surfboard and after that most people took their surfboard back onto the beach then they either went back into the water for a swim.
Or they went up by their bags and had a drink and something and then after that we just stayed at the beach for a little bit then we all went back to our camp and we all had a shower and some of us got dressed into our pi'jamas or we got changed into our clothes.
Then after that we all just played around inside and some of us stayed in our cabins and we just relaxed.
Then after a while dinner was ready and after all of us finished dinner some of us had dessert some people didn't want dessert.
And after dinner and dessert everyone got ready for bed then the seniors got a choice of going to sleep or we could play spotlight and most people chose to play spotlight after a couple of games of spotlight.
Everyone went into their cabins and went to sleep.
