  • All of the people put cloths and towels on them.
  • They grab their chilly bins, water bottles,
    cooking pots and mixing bowls to fill with water to keep the whales
    wet to survive.
  • Pour buckets of water on them to keep them filled in water.

Activity 2 is about what I think because NZ people are killing pests just like possums. I have to make an opinion to give three reasons why I think that way.


  1. Possums eat leaves, flowers, leaf buds, fruit, birds, insects and snails.

  2. Possums eat eggs and chicks of  kokako

  3. Really dangerous to other animals because Possums have a diseases that can go around killing other animals.

Flying Kiwi

On the 23nd of March I was at camp. On that day we got to pick our most enjoyable activity that we had done. I got so excited my heart started pounding and pounding. It was beating so fast I felt like I'd been chased by thousands of dogs! The activities I got to pick from were Archery, High ropes, Orienteering and the flying kiwi. When Mrs Anderson told us about the flying kiwi I thought to myself 'What is the flying kiwi?' Then she told us what this was. I really wanted to do that, so I did!

When the instructors were getting me into the harness I checked if I felt really scared. As soon as the instructors clipped my harness to the rope I knew there was no going back. When the others in my group were pulling me up I regretted my choice on picking this activity. As I reached to the top my eyes were closed. I couldn't open them. I felt like my eyes were stitched to each other! When I finally opened them I could see a magnificent sight. I could see the beautiful trees and bushes. I could also hear the waterfall but as soon as I looked down my heart started racing again. I felt like I was going to fall.

Luckily as the others were lowering me down my heart started to beat slowly and slowly. When my feet touched the ground I felt like I wanted to jump up and down with happiness, but I played it cool even though my friends knew I was almost going to cry at the start.

Today I got to write a recount about something amazing that has happen.This was fun for me because I got to relive my moments from camp. This is a 5 min snapshot of one of my favourite moments at camp.
