This week in Room One we went to camp in Westport.
My favourite part of camp, was paddle boarding. I really enjoyed how relaxed and calm the water was. It was really interesting seeing the fish and whitebait swimming underneath the board.
Floating down the river felt weird at first but then I got used to it after a while. Jack Rowe, Isaac and I were in the front most of the time, which was surprisingly fun because we were racing each other.
Going under the Buller Bridge was kind of scary, hearing the echoes of the cars and of the water crashing against the poles.
At the end of the river when we finished Paddle boarding we all went for a refreshing swim which we all really enjoyed.
On Wednesday, Room 2 went to Dixon Park and had some hot chips there. It was exciting there and there was a flying fox. It wasn't really fun because it was a small one. There was this circle that everyone sat on and spun around. Everyone loved it because it was going to fling off. After that, Room 2 drove to Greymouth swimming pool. It was really amazing there. The year 3s and over could go on the deap side and year 1s and 2s stayed on the swallow end. We were underwater touching the bottom and some people were racing from side to side. When the sprinklers went off, the water dropping from the buckets were knocking everyone's goggles off. There was also this water sprayer when it was spraying and ekoed inside. Then everyone drove back to school and it wasn't home time so everyone had a little bit more fun outside.
Bang! Crash! As I on the paddle board I feel the water hit me. I feel alive.The only thing that is going through my head is how refreshing the water will be. Splash! I fall in. A gigantic smile runs through my face.
I feel refreshed. As the salty aerated water runs down my throat I gag. I see the slimy,green rocks at the bottom of the water.I hear people yell in the distance. It was an exhilarating experience.
We are learning to write a descriptive writing Bang the race starts. I whooped off the diving board my friends shouting at me! All I here is Go! Go! Go! We can win this! I'm so under pressure.I can just smell that bubbly, salty, gooey chlorine. Just listening to the carbonated water I can't do it I just can't. Yes you can someone says to me in my head. My mind is exploding with thoughts. I won! I won!
In the holidays my family and I went to the beach and watched the sunset.
I step onto the beach. Pink and orange clouds as the sunset takes place. The warm breeze feels like a blanket over me. My head leans to the side as I relax. The sun slowly goes down then disappears and went dark and quite.
" I wonder what tomorrow's sunset will be like" I say to myself.
The room was mess A mountain of clothes making a misty feeling in the air. There was mountains of stuff on the floor, no longer being able to see the carpet. Makeup and Lego bits scattered all around the room. Everywhere I looked, looked like a bomb of makeup and lego exploded leaving a mess all around. The carpet in the room looked like dust mites lurking in it. It felt like I was stuck in a rubbish dump. The room was misty, dusty and damp I could barely breathe.
