Challenges and Strategies

  1. Working with others
  2. Stingrays
  3. Heights
  4. Swimming
  1. Don’t think their way is bad and think
    mind is better and join in.
  2. Listen to instructions and stay on the raft and in the yacht.
  3. Listen to the instructions and make sure my buckles are done up tightly.
  4. There's a life jacket.

Through camp I will try to join in more and not do all of the work, because I don’t really like working with others and don’t assume their ideas are bad.. As long as I stay on the raft and stay in the yacht I will be okay because stingrays don’t come out of the water. I also have an issue with heights, if I listen and make sure my buckles are done up tight. Just don’t panic while I’m in the water.

Pick the Place!!

I conducted a investigation on the best place to go to camp. To figure this out I rolled a dice. Mt Albury is 1 and 6, Lake Waihonu is 2 and 5 and Marama Island is 3 and 4. After rolling it was 3 out of 4 for Lake Waihonu and 1 for Mt Albury.

Trust Challenge!!

In preparation for our upcoming outdoor adventure, Room 8 did trust challenges.

Challenge 1
First people were paired up and numbered 1 and 2.  Number 1’s guide the number 2’s to the front gate. But the 2’s had their eyes closed and no one could go on the grass.

Challenge 2
After all the pairs got to the gate the roles changed, 2’s were the guide and the 1’s were the blind. The 2’s could lead the 1’s anywhere but not the playgrounds, the bottom court, car park and any more restricted areas.

Challenge 3

Once everyone got back to the class we moved the tables and chairs around to make a maze. Then we paired up again. One person was the guide and the other one was the blind. The guide disorientated the blind more by spinning them around and round. Then the guide told the blind direct directions to get to other end of the class.

Superhero Postcard

In Room 8 we used a writing resource it prompts us on an adventure, fantasy, sci-fi and scrambler. I had to right a postcard that came from a superhero.

Grey Angels!

8 April 1915
A large crowd came together on Wellington’s Glasgow Wharf. Fifty New Zealand nurses were  boarding the SS Rotorua. They were on their way to the war in Europe. It was a vast and boundless ocean. The nurses landed in Egypt where the soldiers from Gallipoli were taken to. They work long and hard hours to treat the injured. Some patients were sick with dysentery and pneumonia. Others had serious bullet or shrapnel wounds or broken bones. Later that year the weather got very cold and soldiers came with terrible frostbites. Patients that recovered were sent back to war. Those who were very sick were sent home on the hospital ship. After a year in Egypt some of the nurses were sent to work in New Zealand hospital at Brockenhurst. Nurses were sent wherever they were needed  but never to the front line.

Dysentery-Infection of the intestines resulting in blood and mucus in the feces.
Pneumonia-Lung inflammation caused by bacterial or viral infection
Shrapnel-Fragments of a bomb.
Frostbites-When the tissue skin of the body freeze.
inflammation-When parts of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.
