Art Attack this term focused on turning our mihis into a visual representation scroll. This meant we had to draw our mountain, river, flower or tree and or an icon from the region we come from. We planned and then designed what our scrolls would look like on draft paper before beginning on our good piece of cartridge. The Art medium we used was water colour paints. These paints enabled us to play around with colour and combinations of these. This is what we came up with...
We were excited about participating in the first Oaklands School Top Team event being run by Sport Canterbury. We got to do a variety of activities, some of which involved a lot of water! This was probably the part of the event that students enjoyed the most, getting wet! We worked together in teams to win points. Below are Room 4's highlights of the event.

meals, colourful, challenging, the waterslide, the bouldering wall, archery, low
ropes, swimming, the monorail and the trampolines.
WHAT I ENJOYED ABOUT CAMP!
favourite thing at camp was the bouldering wall and my favourite thing at the
bouldering wall was around the world. I loved the monorail. The waterslide made
my shorts dirty! Though everything was fun!
At camp my
favourite thing was feeding and patting the animals they were cute. I felt
spoilt by them. I also enjoyed archery and air rifles because I got huge
targets. I felt amazing it was awesome! I also liked the bouldering wall it was
challenging and exciting! I also loved the campfire because we sang super silly
songs [a chiki chiki chumba!] [A maso maso maso! and you can’t ride in my
little red wagon the fronts seat’s broken and the axels dragon] yes that was
super too! I loved swimming too! But the walking wasn’t so good or the sleeping
[it was to noisy!]
I Enjoyed Camp
funny songs at the campfire, did archery, climbed the bouldering wall, went on
the swing, rode the monorail, did the initiatives and slid down the mudslide.

smores, silly songs, looking after friends that were sad, milking cows, riding
horses, feeding animals, swimming, the monorail, the colours game and the farm.
