Camp Kaitawa
On Monday 13th March to the 17th March, the Year 5/6 from Kauri 89 drove to Camp Kaitawa for a week.

We went kyaking at Lake Wherowhero, it was fun because Bowen and I were catching rides on the back of the kyaks by hanging, well we were on tubes.  It was funny because I kept on falling out of the tubes. We had pasta for dinner the first night.

Cheetah PBL

My Creature is:

My creature is a Cheetah.
Some things I needed to consider about my creature:

They need heaps of running space and they need meat to eat. They also need water to live.
My enclosure has these special features for my pet:

I liked the scratching bag and the bed because I liked the soft pillows. I also made a running space.
What I am pleased about:
I am pleased at how the house fitted together. Also I like that it has something  to play with, it had a scratching bag hanging from the roof.  I made it with cardboard, I got it into a small line and then I folded it in half and put some tape on it.  I put red lines on it to show the scratches.
What I have found tricky:

Putting up trees with the hot glue gun because it would not stay, and make it stay. Painting because it was getting all over me and not on my PBL.
What I would like to improve:

I would like to improve putting the leaves on for the grass.

We are learning to add detail to our art by blending with pastels and creating different patterns using paints and different tools like sponges and forks to make wiggly lines.
