River study

At camp we where doing a river study. 
We learnt a lot of this about what makes a good river.
The last few days we have been making a Infographic about the river study.
I have a tree,cow pat and algae and more with reasons why we need them and why we don't need them.

Digging for Pipi writing.

Digging for Pipi writing!
We had to write a memoir that creates a picture in the readers mind.
I wrote about Havelock Pony club and the best ride I had there.

At Havelock North Pony Club

As I arrived at pony club, mum said ‘We are here’. I opened the car door in excitement to get the gate. We unloaded my pony and the first thing my mum and I saw was a massive poo. As he went down the ramp, all of the poo got kicked down. ‘YUCK trident,’I said in a disgusted voice.
I tied him on the float and began tacking him up.
I went to hop on and all of a sudden mum said ‘your girth isn't tight’ so my mum came and tightened it. I start walking around in a circle and then I had my gear check.
We started our lesson by walking around in a square and then one at a time trotting to the back.
We began with just basic games. Bending through the poles, up and back.We also did my favorite games stepping stones, you go up half way and hop off and lead your pony why you're going over the stepping stones, then you have to get back on and ride to the end and ride back.
Then we did the sock race but I don’t remember much but I do remember that the socks smelt really bad. Finally it came to an end all of us hoped of and untacked one by one and slowly all the floats left.As we were leaving, I told my mum ‘my pony was so good I love him’.

My Mihimihi

In week 3 we began making our mihimihi,
We had to learn how to say the different word and memorise with out looking, It was not easy.
A mihimihi is a piece of writing that tells people about you in Maori.
Here's mine.
