On the 6th of November, Puriri team and Kauri team went to lovelock track to do athletics. The activities were 100 meter sprint, 200 meter, 800 meter, long jump, high jump, discus, and shotput. I came 2nd in 800 meter sprints, and 4th in most of the other activities.I think that the high jump was the hardest activity because we started jumping at 95cm and I'm not very good at it. I really liked lovelock track because the racing track did not have any sticks or thorns on the track, so that meant that we wouldn't hurt ourselves.

Yesterday we went to chosen valley camp with room 7 and 18. I really liked the food that we had at camp because we had nachos, chicken, chips, sausages, and cereal. The activities at camp were epic. There was archery, go karts, water slides, kayaking, raft building, balance island, A frame, and a confidence coarse. It was one of the most coolest experience in my life.

A graceful butterfly landed on a flower as it sucked with its proboscis. A praying mantis watched her every move. The butterfly flapped her wings from flower to flower and the mantis followed close behind. The butterfly was always whipping her head around before she landed on the next flower but her eyes weren’t good enough to see the stealthy praying mantis. When the butterfly was going to leave the patch of flowers, the praying mantis attacked. The butterfly tried to escape but the praying mantis was to fast. Soon the butterfly was the mantis delicious dinner. Yum... so filling.
This is my 100 word challenge. We can only use 100 words. I hope you like my story!

In the school holidays, My family went to Mt Maunganui. We lived right next to the beach and it was only a 1 minute walk. On our second day there, we climbed Mt Maunganui. It was more than 2 hours to get up and down the mountain. It is 232m tall, which is not tall at all. Then we went to the beach and the hot pools. The hot pools were very hot, and it was salt water!
