Show Not Tell - Hydroslide

As I looked down from the tower of fun I saw the ground was at least a mile away. I waited patiently for my turn. It finally came. As the light stayed on red I waited for it to change to green, it did. Swissh went the water as I skimmed down through the monstrous slide, as dark as the night. ‘SPLASH’ I came out of the monster and I crashed into more water. It was like I went in one way and came out the other.

The Things That I Liked Mostly At camp

The things that I liked the most without a doubt has got to be Swimarama. First we had to wait then we had to listen to the lifeguard tell us what to do and what not to do. Then after that we had to find a place where we can put our bags by our friends, so then we found a place write next to a tree.

After that people jumped into the dive pool. Then with a huge surprise the Vodafone Warriors came and then everyone went over the moon they chanted and even did the haka. A short while after the Warriors got out of the pool while everyone chanted them off and then after that the hooter went off and we had to get ready to leave.

As we were on our way back to the buses, our bus left without us and then we stopped and played on the playground my friend Matthew said that we should just run and climb everywhere on the playground were most people won't dare to go. Our bus arrived shortly and then we got on it and left to school. We got our bags then left with our family back home the end.

First Day Of Camp

The best days of the year have always been at camp.

The first day finally came. What team was I in ? Who was in it ? How many people were in my group?. It turned out to be that I was the leader of the group named 'Team Respect'. In our group there are a total of 7 boys and 9 girls. So there was a total of 15 of us.

Our first activity was by far the hardest challenge. First we were going to put our tents up and then we couldn’t cause it started to rain, so after that we had to go do boxing fitness which was more challenging than a game on its hardest difficulty.

After that we had my favourite thing about today we had Captain’s Ship, Mr Harris was the person that was the captain then he said everything that was on a piece of paper so we had to run, lie down kick our hands and legs up and sway them around. In the end I came 2nd and my mate Gabriel came first. The last command we had to run to the right side of the captain and then he remembered it and ran.

Today was an awesome day and I cant wait to see whats planned for us tomorrow. Its going to be ...AWESOME

My Writing Sample

“YEEEEAH” we shouted as we left the school grounds “this is going to be the best picnic ever” I thought to myself today was Friday the 24th and it was our big school picnic. “what to do first: I said to my mate Kayde, There was plenty to do Softball, Cricket, Volley and go play on the beach and if you didn’t want to do any of that then you could go sit down on the grass and talk to your mates about how your lives gone!.

Then as we sat down listening to Mr Burt talk to us about what we could do and cant do. Lots of things came into my head Softball no Cricket. Those jumped in and out of my head, after Mr Burt said his speech we all got up and went to go put our bags by our class teacher. After a while we all decided to go and have a nice game of Softball.

Quicker than anything we set up the teams so they where even and anyone that wanted to play could jump on to either team, After about 10 minutes of mucking around we all got straight into it. I was the first pitcher on my team alongside me was Matthew R on 1st base Havea P was on 2nd and we were the star players on our team “Strike 1” called the umpire “Strike 2” called the Umpire again ‘SMAAAAACK’ went the ball as Matthew T smashed it into mid-air “Base 1” called the umpire “Base 2” called the umpire “Base 3” called the umpire “Home” called the umpire.
Everyone cheered Matthew on.

The game got more and more intense every second I would pitch harder and harder til my arm flew off with the ball and the batter would try whack it even further than their previous one. “Wheew, Better pick up the pace” I thought to myself. Things were a lot harder now my arm was tired so I decided to swap around with my best friend Lepa T. In the end we came off as a tie even though no one knew the points what so ever. To me I had one of the best whacks that day I smashed the ball so far that it had hit Samuela on the head with the ball. It might have been really sore cause he reacted to it pretty fast. After that we left and we did our own things after about an hour or two Mr Burt called us in and it was the end of the picnic.

As we all came back to school my ankles were killing me and everyone had an awesome time by the looks of it. Me and my mates were all thirsty and tired we could of just collapsed right there on the spot when we came back to class. I had the adventure of a life time, hopefully we can do something like that again. The End
