Camp Kaitawa

We went kayaking in Lake Wherowhero, Sam, Riley CT & me went on the same kayak. Sam & I jumped straight off the kayak into the deep water, we also went rock hopping at lake Waikaremoana. I have been there 4 times now. 

On Tuesday we went to Lake Waikareiti, we had to walk uphill 300m to get to the lake, it was tiring. When we got there Sam, Jack and me got in the water, it was so cold. I went up onto a rock and I didn't know that the rock was very slippery and wet so when I got on the rock I slipped into the water.  I was wearing clothes so I got wet, when I got over that, Sam and Jack and I saw a frog swim fast right past me going 20km per minute, it gave me a fright, a few minutes later Sam wanted to go into the deep water.  Ready for the funny part? Sam got in in his undies, and got into the deep water, Sam did not know that the deep water was super super cold, then Sam said "Ooooooooowwwwww it's so cold!"
It was so funny.

On Wednesday we did Master chef, for breakfast we made pancakes, I made heaps of them because my group thought I was good at flipping the pancakes. The pancake we picked for jugding was a little over cooked because I tried to flip it, but it slipped off, but one good thing happened, where it was burnt there was a love heart and around the love heart it looked like it was carved into a heart.

P.B.L Blog Pot

My Creature is a Haast eagle.  This eagle is now extinct. Extinct mens they're not in the world, only there bones are.   
Some things I needed to consider about my creature:
I needed to make a big area so it can fly and it needed to have something to do.  
My enclosure has these special features for my pet:
A hatch so I can put water and food into their trough. I needed a hatch because the Haast eagle could sweep down and grab me.  
A computer to access the cameras. I needed cameras so people I trust can see what the eagle
Is doing.   
What I am pleased about:
Sellotaping the walls together, I used cardboard and I used string to lower the food. I made a sliding door, I had planned to make a scanner so people I trust can look at the cameras and see what is going on.  They could write on a piece of paper so that I know what the Eagle is doing.
I was using my planning muscle on the door so I knew what to do. I used my Questioning muscle when I didn’t know what to do. Questioning muscle means you ask someone for help. I used my perseverance muscle on the sliding door and I never gave up or started crying. The perseverance muscle means you keep on going and never give up or you can use the Questioning muscle for help.     
What I have found tricky:
Sellotaping the walls together and on to the floor.
Making iron bars out of tinfoil.
Making the sliding door.  
What I would like to improve:
I would make a lake so it could swim in it
I would make a friend so it could play together.

Selecting a context
Lost in the Bush
Save the Bush
Fun in the Bush
Step Two & Three
Create questions and identify one broad question
How could I eat in the bush?
Step Four
What did I already know about my question?
I knew that I could eat meat from fish, deer or pigs.
I could also eat birds eggs.
Step Five
Design your creation
I decided to create an egg parachute so I could get eggs down from trees without breaking it.
I wanted to use string, a plastic bag, a basket, toilet paper.
Step Six
Build your creation
Step Seven
It was great and easy to make  

The toilet paper was easy because you just need to put it into the basket  

Ting the string onto the basket and the bag  
Step Eight
I would change the string and yous vins.

I would make a ramp so I could slid down.  
Feedback - ask some other children what they thought?
Sam= It was a smart idea but you could improve the landing.
Kady= I think that the idea of a parachute with an egg in it smart thinking Declan.
Ashle= I think you did a great job for your

Calendar Art

My Calendar Art is a  yellow  truck but when it dried it went green. I think it went green because the background was blue and my foot was yellow so it turned green. Also it is not a normal truck it is my foot but I wish that the front of it didn’t look like a mouth. When I finished it I felt proud of myself.
