Last Tuesday we went on school camp. It went on for about 4 days till Friday. The first day felt quite short and sort of long at the same time.
We went to Hawera pools and went swimming while fighting over some foam floaty things. Then after some more driving we got to camp! We were told to have a safety talk first then to get into our cabins and make our beds plus get dressed in our togs for a go on the slide at the camp.

We got to go to two zoos! One was called Pouakai zoo, and the other Brookland zoo. I enjoyed looking at the meerkats and patting the donkeys the most. After that we got to have a pizza night at Pukekura park but they didn't have my favourite pizza so i was a bit sad. Although I was hungry, I got to play on the playground and walk around half the lake there.
Then it was Thursday. We went on a walk around the lake at Lake Rotokare Reserve. It was nice and cool and we got to hear some birds. Later after that we went to a classroom and talked about birds and stuff and what predators eat them! Then we got to look at another classroom! A classroom in the bush! We got to go to different stages and learn about some different things in nature while writing them down on a clipboard. My favourite one was probably doing Photosynthesis.
On the last day It was quite wet but we went to Tawhiti museum and got to go on the traders and whalers ride. Later on when we finally got back to school to go home I was happy to get some
