Year 5 Camp

Year 5 Camp
At Waiora
When we first got there we unpacked and settled into our bunkrooms. Some boys had a chalet with four people in one bunk room  and 1 or 2 parents in each chalet. One of the groups when we first got there got to abseil. But first they had to practise on smaller ropes then we did the big one it was really scary at the first part but overall it was really fun. On Thursday we had free time for a while so we got the cricket set out and  started doing some pitches with the bull and bat then Brent saw us playing out of the kitchen window so he came out and told us some rules of cricket then a heap of kids started to play then we ended up with pitchers, batters and fielders. Shelby stayed in for ages with batting. Malak and Ousama should be in the Black Caps when they’re and older they are that good at batting.

Chalk Chromography



On the 31st of October room 13 got a glass with 0.5ml of water, and then we got a chalk and a pen then we made a line with the pen and put it in the water for five minutes. After five minutes all the colours were bleeding. Then we went for another five minutes and when the another five minutes the colours went up to the top.  We watched it for another 10 minutes. During the ten minutes the colours reached the top of the chalk. After the 10 minutes we had another look and the line from the top was starting to bleed down the chalk. By Connor

Science in Room 13


In Room 13 we have been doing science. Our first experiment was fermentation ( sugar, water and yeast). It turned out frothy and smelly with a brown colour. How we did it is get lukewarm water and mix yeast and white sugar. For the fermentation we will be changing the  type of sugar (e.g: honey, caster sugar, raw sugar, golden syrup and see if fermentation still happens. We might be make a ginger beer bug to make homemade ginger beer.
