HEYYY, SO I just realised I had written a blog post about my G5 Camp but I never posted it… Everything you read from after this sentence is what I wrote 1 year ago…
And… I’m back
From CAMP! Well I was back 2 days back, but I was too tired to write a blog post over the weekends here’s why….
Ok, so to reach there it took us like 45 min, which is pretty good cause the last camp took us like 1 hour 30 min. Anyway I’m not going to tell you the order and the details of camp I’m just gonna tell you what I liked and what could have gone better. On the first day we did survival, which meant building a fire with Flint and Steel. Rhea, Elsa, Calvin, Darren and me were in one group, with Malisa our group leader who showed us how to use Flint and Steel. We started with putting rope, dead leafs and twigs. All of us got sparks put not fire and when we did get fire we got so exited we forgot to feed it so it went of. When we had 10 min left our group teacher Mr. Minor tried it for the first time he got it. We had it on for 5 min and then we had to put it off cause we had to leave.While making the fire I think we could have not screamed for the Flint and Steel. But we encouraged each other to try. Oh and our group name was Camping Minors. Now for tents…. before I went in I thought it would be be a bit hot but I was so wrong, It was burning. Five minutes in the tent and I was already sweating. Rhea (who was in my tent too) was the same, on the other hand, Anika was fine… SOME-HOW! Since we weren’t that sleepy we played some cards before the teacher told us it was lights out. It was an ok night other than the fact that Rhea and me slept for ONE HOUR! It was kind of Anika’s fault cause she took like half the tent (she slept slanted). She got 4-5 hours of sleep. We could have not talked that much and we might have gotten more sleep. The next day we just had our breakfast and went to build rafts. We did raft building last camp so we didn’t take that long. But I was really surprised it survived a throw from the peer (to check if it was stable to ride it) We had to race against another group and….. we won! So we got to jump of the peer! I was kind of scared but it was so fun. Then we went kayaking for 30 minutes or so. I teamed up with Anika cause we had to go in partners. It was pretty easy once we got the hang of it. We could have cooperated a bit better cause if I wanted to go right Anika wanted to go left. After that we were pretty hungry so we went to eat lunch. To be honest the food was really good and I’m a picky eater. When we slept in the dorm that night it was so much better! We had AC and actual beds! Only one of the problems was that the AC was on for the whole night and on the lowest temperature. So the next morning I had a soar throat. That day we did the “Star Challenge”. It was when we had to split our group into two and go and do different challenges and games. I was with Darren, Anika, Rhea and Calvin. I thought the game ” Nose to Bell”was the hardest, it was when there was a bell attached to the tree and none of us could reach it with jumping so since Calvin was the strongest we all stood on his back to reach it. Darren was too short so Calvin Piggy-Backed him and he reached it ( Calvin also piggy backed Rhea because she couldn’t jump on his back). Anika was shorter but really light so she started jumping on his back (she reached it). I stood on his back and since I was tall I could just reach it. For Calvin to reach he climbed on Darren’s and my back. The Star Challenge was really fun but we could have cooperated a bit better cause we were basically screaming in each others ears. Overall I thought camp was really fun and if I had to rate it from 1-10 1 being the worst and 10 being the best it would be a 7! I hope to go back soon!
Here are some pictures from camp….
Its been a long time since I’ve posted, I should probably change my blogs name since i’m not in 4C anymore, I’m in grade 6. I don’t think we will be posting that often but I’ll try to…
Have a nice life!
Dear Mr. Roberts, (if you ever read this…)
It’s been the BEST year since I’ve joined CDNIS. It was shocked and sad when you told us you were going to leave us and go to Canada :(. But there’s nothing 5E can do to make you stay. Your the FIRST teacher I had that was interested in sports and I love that about you, also you’re always willing to help out and never get really angry (other than a few times when we were really really loud). We (5E) hope you have an amazing time in Canada (with the girl we met at the ice-rink… jk :)) Hopefully you change your mind last minute and teach grade 6 but that’s pretty unlikely. See!! you taught us probability too!! Anyway, hope you don’t forget us and… have a great life? BYEEEE (but you can stay too).
Hi Again Readers,
I’m really excited to type so just read this….
Get ready this is going to be a long post…
I just came back from camp! It was so much fun! For camp we went to Treasure Island! It was so much fun! When we came we got to know our groups and instructor, I was with Anika, Elizabeth (she was sick so she could not come), Fiona, Leah, Kiana, Ryan, Maya, Nadia, Hugo, Kamila, Luca, Jacob, Aiden and Joe. In the evening we just did some activities and played on the beach. Then we took showers and had our dinner. After dinner we had a scavenger hunt, ( that was one of my favourite activities ) we had to find stuff like a bar of soap, a person with a tattoo, a thousand pieces and other weird stuff. Soon we had to go to sleep ( at 9:30 ). The next morning we had to wake up a 6:30, the teacher didn’t have to wake me and Kiana ( my tent buddy ) because we did not sleep that night. Kiana slept for like one hour and I slept for half an hour. After having our breakfast ( where I had French toast and cornflakes ) we went in the water for some more activities like surfing! it was so fun! we first had to do an obstacle course, then we had to go into the water on the surfboard and paddle to teacher on the other side who made us stand on the board and jump off. We did a few rounds, the obstacle course was the same but on the first round she made us stand on the board and jump off, on the second round she made us spin the board by our legs and on the third round she flipped us over. One of my my favourite activities was jumping on the waves even if I got really wet. Then we had a small snack I had apple juice and some cookie kind of thing. After the snack we went to the field to play a game called ” Game Of Life” ( it sounds like the board game but it isn’t ). In the game there was a herbivore, omnivore and a carnivore, it was like tag. The Carnivores could tag the Omnivores and the Herbivore but could not get tagged. The Omnivore has to run from the Carnivore and tag the Herbivores. The Herbivores had to run from the Omnivores and the Carnivores Then we had our lunch, we could make our own sandwich, I used cheese, lettuce and cucumber. After lunch we went to see wetlands, we saw lots of different types of plants, my favourite ones were the Taro and the Horseback plants ( I think that’s what it’s called ), the taro leaf could keep water on the leaf and not get wet, the horseback plant is like a puzzle, you could remove a piece from it and then join it back! After that we went to the beach to find crabs and shells. Soon after that we made our own rafts!! We also had to take them in the water to see if they worked. Our’s worked but when we were in the water one of the ropes in the middle of the rafts was really lose so Anika had to sit on it. I felt really bad for the group that could not go in the water because there rafts broke down before they got into the water. After all that we had to go and take showers. The thing I hate about taking showers is because we have to take them with boys so we can’t remove our swimming costumes ( also the fact that on the first day the water ran out and I still had shampoo on my head, also then we had to wait for 20 minutes for the water to come back ). After showers we had some free time so me and my friends went to the field to do gymnastics and play tag. Then we had our dinner, it was our turn to have a barbecue! I had potato, corn, sausage and some s’mores.Then we played some games for Twilight Activities like this game called “Down In The Jungle” we play it all the time in camp, it goes like this… down in the jungle where nobody goes there’s this big fat gorilla picking his nose he picks it and he flicks it to see where it goes, who’s going to get that who’s going to get that who’s going to get that nasty snot. Then at 9:30 we had to go to sleep. I slept really well that night, in the morning I woke up at 6:00 ( just in time ). Kiana and me cleaned up our tent and packed our bag since it was the last day. After I brushed my teeth we had our breakfast, I just had cornflakes because I was not that hungry. After that we had Orienteering where we had to find points on a map and then go there to collect a ribbon. I didn’t really like the hunt because it started raining and I became really wet and cold. Than we went back to TIG ( Treasure Island Group ). I was so sad that we had to leave in 10 min. After we said bye to our group leaders and got are T-shirts signed ( Forgot to mention, they gave us Treasure Island T-shirts!! ) we left. Oh! I totally forgot about the buffalo poo, it was everywhere, wherever you went you could see some. We reached school in 40 min, then we played some Down In The Jungle. It was a great camp. Here are some pictures….
Since today I have nothing to do and I am really bored I thought that should do a blog post. Have you read the book ” The Parent Agency “? If you haven’t than you should, It is my favourite book!! I finished reading it in like 2 days!! First it was my brothers, but did not like it ( How could he not? ) so he gave it to me. I wish I hadn’t read it so fast because all the fun went away when I finished. The book has 380 pages and it’s written by ” David Baddiel “. I love the book even though David Baddiel is not my favourite author. Here is the blurb if you are planning to read it, ” I WISH I HAD BETTER PARENTS! Barry said, a third time. And then suddenly the entire room started to shake… Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact it’s number two on the list of the things he blames his parents for, after number 1: being boring. But there is a world where parents don’t just have children. Thats far too random. Instead, children are allowed to choose their parents. For Barry Bennett, this world seems like a dream come true. Only things turn out to be not quite that simple…” You should really read this book.
Here is the cover of the book… Here are some other books by David Baddie….
If you are wondering who my favourite author is, it’s David Williams. I can’t choose which book is my favourite from him, They are all fantastic! Here are some books David Williams wrote…
( That means ”Hello People!!” )
I Just found out a secret code which you can only do on a Macbook. Here, I will show you….
a = å b = ∫ c = ç d = ∂ e = ´ f = ƒ g = © h = ˙ i = ˆ j = ∆ k = ˚ l = ¬ m = µ n = ˜ o = ø p = π q = œ r = ® s = ß t = † u = ¨ v = √ w = ∑ x = ≈ y = ¥ z = Ω .
Now you have to solve this:
1. ∫´††¥ ∫ø¨©˙† å ∫å® øƒ ∫¨††´®.
Now see if you can solve this:
2. ı¨† †˙´ ∫¨††´® ı´††¥ ∫ø¨©˙† ∑åß ∫ˆ††´®.
Your a champion if you do this:
3. ßø ı´††¥ ∫´å† å ∫ˆ ˆƒ ∫¨††´® †ø µå˚´ †˙´ ∫ˆ††´® ∫¨††´® ∫´††´®.

For Christmas we made a snowman jar and christmas crackers. If you are wondering what “Christmas Crackers” it is a toilet paper role rapped with coloured paper, and inside the toilet paper role there is candy. We open a Christmas Cracker every day. We made the snowman jar by taking a pompom and sticking the pipe cleaners for the handle and then we put glue all around the jar for putting fake snow on it, after that we took buttons for eye’s and we took leather for the scarfs.
Here is the Christmas decorations we made…
Yesterday I had to perform a different kind of dance. I did two dances. This is a picture my dad took of me and my teacher. I have been doing dance for about 3 years and I think it is really graceful. This dances name is “Barathnatiam” ( I guess thats how you spell it). The dance is where you use your legs to bang on the floor and your hands to do hand gestures.
