Year 6 Camp Kawau Island

Walt: Write a detailed recount about our experience to Kawau Island

Far away from home for 3 days on Kawau Island. On Tuesday the 15th of November year 6 student went to Kawau island. But when we went the year 5 and two year 6 students went to Motat. When we went to Kawau island we saw stingrays and six Orca's.

When we went kayaking the wind blew 3 people over in the water. There are 4 teams but we line up in our A and B lines sometime’s.

The teams that was there was Katz, Kawau, Mansion and Benson. It was fun because we watched movies and played games. The movie we watched was The Princess's Bride and the game we played well it wasn’t more like a game it was like a dancing competition.

Every morning we would always hear the Bugle and it would wake us up at 6:30 - 7:00 and go for our run. It was so tiring because there was heaps of hills that went up. For Breakfast I had porridge with brown sugar and it taste nice.

For Afternoon Tea we had hot food. For Dinner we had hot food and bread. After we finished we had desert. There was Jelly, Ice cream, Chocolate sauce, Sprinkles and Waffy’s. I had a little bit of everything. It taste delicious.

We would practice our item for our camp. When we finished and it was dark we would go get changed, Brush our Teeth, Get our Torches and go outside on the deck ready to play spotlight.

But when we finished they told us to go to bed and the time was 11:30 - 12:00. But one the next day it felt strange but I don’t know why.

When the Bugle went off it wasn’t noisy. It was so quiet. The very first thing we did was get up get our Toothbrush and Toothpaste.

Once we did all activities we got to have a swim. When Sabrina came on she went to go jump and I pushed her but when she came on she said “Who pushed me” and everyone said Shelley!!

When we finished we got to have a shower but it was only for 3 minutes. Because if we take too long we would miss out on Dinner.

e-AsTTle Writing Test - 2016

Walt: write a narrative

One cold night I was sleeping in my bed and I was thinking about something. So when I called my friend’s (Which were) Kerstin, Bryana and Penny they said what is it and I said why don’t we go camping in the forest and they said yes and we packed our stuff and off we went.

When it was our first day camping we discovered that there was a bush that was really rare because there wasn’t that much bushes around because it was a forest. It looked so amazing it had the smell of chocolate and strawberries. But on the outside it looked just like a stinky old bush.

The bush had these were symbols on it. It had an Eye and a Eagle. But there was heaps of them on the ground. We keeped studying it but we didn’t know what it was. Only the greatest can find out and that is Scientist. A long time ago Bryana was a Scientist but she said she had never seen symbols like this befor.

As the days went by Kerstin, Bryana and Penny were catching food. The only food over in the forest was fish, Weasels, Stoat and Ferret. If they wanted to have a drink they had to poke a hole in the tree and water would come out because that was the only way to have a drink.

We noticed something really different in the forest there was only a little bit of wind. Every time at night Kerstin, Bryana and Penny’s tent was always shaking so they would go outside and look but they only heard rockets being moved by someone or something.

The next morning when they woke up there was rocks were in front of the tent. They went to go and check on the bush and they noticed that it had been moved just a little bit. But when they opened the bush it had the same symbols as before. It had the Eye and the Eagle.

It was so tiring waking up in the morning because we had to pack up our stuff and start walking. We all walked for 8 hours. If our feet was sore we had to stop for a little rest. We would set up our tent when the sun sets it only takes us 5 minutes to set our tent up.

Every time in the morning we would always see the bush and the bush would always have the same symbols. We do not know what was going on in the forest but we know that someone or something was following us.

We saw something run past us really quickly and it was black. It felt like a dark shadow. When we keep on walking we found a hand print and a little note. The note said if you want me come and find me. But the hand print was so small it looked like a child's hand print.

But Bryana said we don’t want it and we don’t want to find this person or this thing. Because it is really really creepy. We saw this house and it had had print and it was in blood.
