Today for writing we chose an image online to write about. I chose a scene where the water was eating the city, The W.A.L.T was Describe the words, Here is mine, I enjoyed doing this because I liked finding the image.
This week I have been doing a hot spot about swimming in QEII. I did a lot of activities, Here is my certificate of achievement that I made. This was fun to make and find all the images, and the final result was amazing. Next I did a word find I didn't think this was very good because everything was overlapping. Here it is, This was pretty hard because we had to find the answer sheet. Overall I thought the hotspot was fun and after I finished I would get to make QEII on minecraft.
Today I filled in a format about persistence, I thought about the questions then answered them. I had to add pictures to go with the sentence, Here is my activity, I enjoyed this activity because I got to choose these amazing pictures. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Nationals Surf Life Saving
This week instead of going to camp in Arthurs Pass, my Dad, my brother and I went to the New Zealand champs for Surf Life Saving. I started surf lifesaving for South Brighton in 2018, but started doing competitions in 2019. This year so far I have done South Island champs, I think I did pretty well in that, winning a few things, so my parents signed me up for Nationals in Mount Maunganui. Nationals runs over 4 days with up to 3 events each day, there were about 700 contestants covering the whole beach. Only 12 competitors from my club came up to the comp. I got one medal coming 2nd in beach flags, beach flags is when competitors lie down in the sand, facing away from the flags. At the signal they get to their feet, turn and sprint to a flag placed in the sand. There are always fewer flags than competitors. Anyone who fails to gain a flag is eliminated until there is only 1 person left. In that event I managed to get my only medal. I was very proud of my results, I got into 5 finals. Overall out of 50 clubs South Brighton finished 6th. This was a great experience and am looking forward to next year's Nationals. Here are some pics,
Team Tahi Teamwork
W.A.L.T Work Together Last week in Team Tahi we did a teamwork activity, we played a really fun game where you had to collect water from a big bucket with an ice-cream container and run to the other side to fill up that bucket. Here are a few photos, My favourite part was when M.r Gray told us to hold it above our head. Have you ever played a game similar to this?
Manga Character Drawing (Postponed)
Today I made a drawing for The Summer Learning Journey, You had to picture a character and then try to draw it, the computer would clean it up afterwards. Here is my picture. I did a girl wearing big jacket and a red beanie. I really enjoyed getting to make a manga character because it is so creative. You should have a go at doing it yourself?

Long Place Names
Today for the Summer Learning Journey I learnt about long place names, I listened to a music video from a kiwi artist called Ra Costelle, explored a different task from the summer learning journey, looked at some slides about some places with long names, and finally filled out the form about some other long place names. Here is my form,
I liked learning about some long place names, but my favourite part was listening to the song. What is the longest place name you know?
