Camp Day 4

WALT choose words that describe a moment (in an exciting way) for the reader
  • begins in the action
  • present tense (I am, not I was)
  • short, sharp sentences
  • strong verbs
  • uses the senses (look, feel, hear, taste, smell)
  • language features (simile, alliteration, onomatopoeia, metaphor)
  • show personality (sounds like you, humour, feelings, exaggeration)

    We walk out from inside the camp and we line up in our camp groups by the toilets. It was the parents decision to pick a group. So we had Richard ( Cameron's dad).  We have our clue in the envelope and we couldn't open it yet until Misses Hill started counting to 1 from 10. She counts to down to 7,6,5,4,3,2,1 we open our first clue.

The first clue was taking place at the court by the lake. We had to use sticks to write one of our camp animals name. So we did hawk. We used different styles have sticks. Wet ones, big ones, skinny ones, and minny ones. We put them all together and we had spelt hawk.

Clue # 2 was next. We had to run back to camp to make the fudge. We entered the dining room and we can see another team had already finished. We quickly washed our hands and we quickly started. We started killing the biscuits and started adding in the egg. We put in the melted butter and the we put in the cocoa. We mix the fudge with our hands and we put them on the flat plate and we push them down a we put them in the refrigerator.

Our 3rd clue had come.  But we had to make a decision. It was either doing the physical or the thinking challenge. And we did the simple one the physical. We run back down to the courts to start the physical challenge. We did star jumps, press ups, and sit ups. Liam and Jessica were the first to do the star jumps. 10 of each exercise. Me and Olivia did the sit ups. I finish after my 10 and so Liam and Zach did the push ups. 

Clue #4. Our clue was to go to the confidence course and climb over the less smaller wall. For this one we had to use teamwork. The first person that went over was Zach. Liam carried him over. Then it was me. And this was the weird part. Liam lifted me over. And I made it on the other side of the wall. Next he carried over Jessica Me and Zach grabbed her hands while her body was on the other side of the wall. And so we pulled her over and she landed on her feet. Olivia was the 3rd to last person. She kept falling and falling every time she tries to push herself to the top. But she made it on the 6th round. Richard helped Liam over and Richard was the last.

The 5th clue was next. We were running back to the camp and there was a puzzle waiting for us. We open the envelope and there were pieces of paper coming out from the envelope. They were shaped into triangles. We connect the edges and corners first and after we put in the insides. It was a mountain. It would be cool if you saw it for reals. It looks like a great view.  Clue 6. 

We are coming. It was an kayaking challenge. We chose Jessica and Liam to kayak. The Titans are about to come to shore. So I help them come in. Jessica and Liam finally row faster. They meet Miss Patel at the other side have the lake. They get our next clue.

They quickly bring the clue back and it was our last clue. It was a tricky one. It said “ wlka hte irew ridgeb” which was known as walk the wire bridge. And off we go to the confidence course. We wait until all of us were here. We start after we got back Jessica. We start t the end and we make it to the end. We run back and we see the other groups were already there. We came last;. But the main thing was having an fun and amazing time at camp.
