Room 4 had a pretty AWESOME time at camp last week. On Thursday we went to Tangimoana Beach and did a beach clean up. We collected 12 bags of rubbish!! We also played some relay games and had a few competitions. On Friday we walked the DOC track, Beehive Creek, Pohangina. It was a fun walk and we really enjoyed walking through down the creek!
We had a great, fun filled couple of days! Check out some of the photos!

10 Photo Challenge!

Room 4 kids had a great time working together completing the 10 photo challenge! Using the Ipads they had a list of photos they needed to take and then had to put their photos together using pic collage. Some of the photos were a real hoot!
They had to take photos of:

  • an animal
  • something funny
  • a group selfie
  • a jumping or handstand pic
  • something yellow
  • #awesome
  • an extreme close up of a flower
  • a sporting action shot
  • a group member giving another group member a shoulder ride or piggy back
  • a photo of your choice
Check out what these creative kids came up with!

DOC ranger viewing tower - Technology Challenge

On Monday afternoon, we wrapped up our endangered animals social studies unit. We were in groups and we had to design and build a DOC tower prototype. The tower had to be high so the ranger could climb up high in the forest, stand on the top platform and count all the endangered kereru birds. We had loads of fun, we worked well in our teams and all of our towers were able to stand and hold the ranger! Check out of awesome designs!
