6 Word Challenge

The mighty Room 7 have been at it again! This time we have created an fantastic video that we would like to share with you all.  Our challenge was to tell a story in 6 words or less.  In the beginning of the writing process we found it difficult to try and express ourselves using just the 6 words. However, over the week we worked super hard and started to experiment using more descriptive language in our stories. By doing this we unleashed our inner writer and came up with what we think is a awesome Video.  Have a watch and tell us what you think.

Muriwai School Camp

WOW, what a week that was! Rooms Seven, Eight and Nine went on a fabulous, back to basics, old school camp out at Muriwai beach last week.  The aim of our camp was to be pushed outside our comfort zones and challenge ourselves away from the classroom setting. BOY OH BOY, did we do this. We pushed ourselves in ways that we had never done before with the most exciting thing being, no matter how hard it got we never gave up and we achieved things that we never thought we could. We got pelted by rain, covered in mud, blown off track, had wobbly legs, walked in the dark and you know what the best part of it all was. WE LOVED EVERY MINUTE.

Comments from the kids!

I thought camp was fantastic, at first i was so nervous to go but it was just so much fun. - Stevie-Lee

This week at camp i felt so happy and proud of myself because i didn't really want to go to camp at first. However during camp i just felt so amazing and had the time of my life. Woo Hoo - Claire
