On the 28th of January all of the year sixes at Good Shepherd School went to camp. We went to Merc in long bay. When we go there we went to chose our bunks I chose the bottom bunk next to the window. then we got into our groups. I was in the orcas. Our first activity was Orienteering then we did raft building. In raft building we built a raft using wood, barrels and rope. The when we had done we went in the water and tried it out. It was a success our raft did float. My favourite activities were the giants ladder and sailing. On Thursday we had the talent show me and my friend did the not my hands challenge makeup edition. There were amazing acts. Unfortunately we did not win but the people who did win were awesome. On Friday at 1.00 we were loading up the cars and going back to school. I was sad but thankful for the this awesome camp.
Today in health we learnt about being sun smart. We learnt about skin cancer, the ozone layer and to slip slop slap wrap and slide. We created posters about being sun smart. I liked learning about skin cancer and the ozone layer. Leaning about this has made me more aware of how the sun can be dangerous and how we can protect ourselves.
This week is my first week in Room Five and we have made a puzzle. It means that of there is one piece missing there will be no Room Five .We have also been learning about Lunar New Year. We learnt about the Chinese zodiac I am the year of the rat. We made cool dragon masks for Chinese new year. We also voted for the house captain.

After we had finished voting the announced the winners and they said me!!!!!. This week was awesome.
In room six we have been working on a puzzle. By working on this we have been reminded that we are all a piece of a puzzle and if we worn't in it there would be no room six. The puzzle was really fun to do at I would like to do one again.
