Picnic reflection 2016

This year our picnic was a bit different we usually have picnic in term one but because of the weather it got moved to term four. So when I arrived at school  I was ready to go down to the beach and chill and maybe even play in the sand with my friends. Mr Burt then called all of the school into the hall for reminders and a quick talk about responsibility. Our class was called first to start walking down to the beautiful pt England reserve just across from our school. Other classes came following after.

When we got to the reserve we sat down again for another talk and then Off we all went. Every team had their own setting area our team were sitting under the trees near the cliff off onto the beach. Most people went down to the beach to play in the sand and find some crabs in the water. The water was quite out so we had to wait until later on to go swimming. I went down to look for some crabs I kept getting the biggest crabs, my friends called my the crab whisperer. I then sat down on the sand just playing with my friends trying to bury them in sand.

After a while I got bored so me and my friend Lucy went for a walk down the beach and started playing with the clay I had a whole handful of clay and made a circle. We walked back down to where we were sitting before. We sat up under the trees. I started eating and Lucy went to sleep. I just started talking to my friend Htete Htete and Quinlan we ate heaps of lollies and chocolate. I then went back down on the sand and played around again. I came back up later when all of our class was eating hot chips. Our teacher Mrs Tele’a shouted our whole class hot chips and drinks. It was also Cameo’s birthday and her friend Heather made a cookies and cream cheesecake for her. I thought that was so nice.  

Later on we had to leave so we all sat back down in the middle of the reserve and while waiting for everyone to come we had a karaoke. It was so funny some boys were funny when they were singing. Overall it was so fun I wish I could go back to that day or just have a picnic every Friday.

  1. Kia ora Ariana,

    I'm Mark, a teacher working for the Summer Learning Journey you signed up for at the end of term. I was just online to check who has started their journey and do some commenting and then I saw this amazing summary of your picnic! It would be amazing if you could do some writing like this on our programme.

    Anyway, I'm just here to remind you that the Summer Learning Journey still exists if you want something different to do during the holidays. There are loads of activities and learning opportunities about travel and the world if you are interested. The best part about it is that you get to choose what you learn. There are lots of people commenting, and quite a few of your classmates have decided to start it up.

    Regardless of whether you join in or not, I hope you're having a great holiday! I've tried to motivate your friends to join in too, so maybe if you can all get in on it together that would make things more fun!

    kia kaha,
