We first went to Aotea lagoon and played around on the park and the field. Then we had survival day but it was a bit different to the old way we use to do. We did it in classes and did really good activities my favourite was with Miss Breuss Mc Bride her activity was a strategy game. We had groups of four and seven kids in each group and we had to use four pieces of cardboard to get to the other side of the hall and if we touch the ground our whole team had to start all over again.

We caught the bus into Wellington and went to Te Papa Museum then we caught the bus to Nga Taonga Sound and Vision where we learnt about different places that were there before but they're not there any more. When they made marie’s they would make it with paua shells. When a rhino beetle eats coconut palms it ruins coconut crops also a putatara is a maori instrument which is a conch shell.

Then we had a sleepover in the school hall Just before that we played activities. Like basketball and another game we you had to throw three tennis balls around the field and once you have finish throwing you run to side and to a burpee and do the same thing to the other side. So when everyone was asleep we had to wake up in the morning and we got 20 minutes to get ready and do boot camp. Then we had to go inside because it started to rain then we did some activities in the school hall and the we caught the bus to the swimming pools and got ready to swim.
