This is a little something that I made on audacity. It is ment to the sounds of some one who had just driven up to a haunted house and that there just walking up to the door of the house, and them walking around in the house hearing all these sounds that makes them that scread that they run away.
My highlights on the 1st semester are that I got to be part of two framing related programs. The 1st one I did was RIST. I learnt a lot of things there. I got showed how to sheer a sheep, how to class wool, the parts of a sheep’s body and much more. You can go to this website to get more info RIST. The 2nd program that I did was taste of dairy. It was pretty much the same style of learning, but with dairy cows. Another highlight is the canoe camp. It is one of the best camps that I have ever gone on. I was hoping to go on the winter camp, but unfortunately the camp didn’t go are head because the class didn’t bring back there notes. One more highlight on this is what we did in ICT. We di QR coding, audacity, photo collages drawings on a computer and making our own avatars. You can see all of my work that I have done in ICT on my blog. The thing I liked the most was the swimming sports. Because I won third place in the 100 meters. I never win anything. I was really happy with my self after withed.
I made these codes with QRstuff.
You can read these codes with Qrafter on your Ipad or Iphone.
I made this car using www.awwapp.com.
You can make a collage like my one below by just going to this website = fotor collage maker.
Photo that I have put in the collage are taken by me. I took them at a friends house.
On Tuesday the 19th we year 9s set on a three day journey in canoes. We faced getting lost in the bush at night time for walks, wind powerful to blow tents around, thunder and lighting, boats filling up because of pouring down rain, hot days, getting stuck on low brunches in the water, strong winds that pushed us around on the water and Sam’s snoring that sounded like a dying cow.
The first part of our journey was to pack the trailers and hop on the bus. By the time we got to the camp site that we were to start from it was lunch time. After that we got the canoe on the water with us and our paddles and life jackets. It took us a couple of hours to get to the camp we were going to stay at. But we did have a couple of stops along the way. Most of the time we were changing canoes. When we arrived at the camp we unpacked the trailers and set up camp for the night. The boys and teachers were up hill and the girls were down hill near the water. Once that was all done we started on dinner. My group had just paste with a sauce. When it got a bit darker Hughie told us that we were going out on a night walk. We saw a bit and herd some wildlife on the walk. When we got back it was time for bed. I am pretty sure it was easy for everyone to get to sleep because we were all pretty tried from canoeing.
The next morning everyone got up feeling cold. It was so cold that my cooking group cooked noodles for breakfast just to keep us warm. It was so cold that there was mist on the water. It did look pretty cool. When we cleaned out the inside of our tents and took them down. We got started on the water. When we stopped for lunch Ida and I had to pull up our canoe. Ida kept on screaming and stoping because where we had to was a whole heap of bees. After a while we got up the hill to have lunch. Lunch tasted so good. Who knew sandwiches could taste so good. I had about two sandwiches. I could have had one more that there was nothing left. After lunch we all changed canoe and partners. I was in with Sam. We had one of the faster canoes which made it easy to stay up the front. Sam and I wanted to make it hard for our self’s. So we were going over brunches that had fallen down in the water. There was one that was a little low in the water and Sam and I got stuck. We arrived at the camp. The camp looked so much better than the last. The first thing we did was set up tents. Then Hughie said we could go swimming. We weren’t meant to be swimming so Hughie said we were just testing the life jackets. We then all got out of the water and set up the inside of our tents. We then got stared on dinner was cutting onions at first then I was cutting lettuce and then I was cooking the onions. After all that cutting we then ate. It tastes pretty good. There was some brunt stuff but it still tasted good. When it got dark we all went out for a night walk. It was very scary because Hughie got us lost out in the bush. Hughie said that the walk would be about 30 minutes. It felt like 2 hours. After a while then found the main road. We walked back to our tents and went to bed. But when everyone just got in to we all herd someone soring. It sounded like a dyeing cow. It then stopped. We all woke up at about 4:30am to wind blowing down our tents. We fixed that and then woke up again to a thunder storm and heavy rain.
In the morning I packed up the inside of the tent and woke up everyone else who was in there with me. When we saw day we got up and had breakfast. We also found out that it was Sam who was soaring. We cleaned up the camp sit and packed the trailer. After that was all done we took down the tents. Ours was really wet. Which was a bit of a downer but that’s was happens when you go camping and it rains. When we got on the water the wind picked up. I got up the front and stayed up there. It started to rain real heavy. So we rafted up and waited for the rest of the other kids. We then went on our own. Then all of a shock there was a loud crack of lighting and thunder. I couldn’t herd the other kids screaming because it was that loud. We kept on going around the corner and saw Hughie on the jetty. We pulled the canoes in soaking wet. All the girls got to go up the hill and get change in to dry clothes while the boys stayed and pack the trailers. When we were all changed and packed the trailers again. We left to go and have lunch in Portland. The wind that day was so strong that it was pushing the bus around. When we arrived back at school we told to unpack the trailer. Tayla and I had to put the photos on the computers. That took the whole time the others were unpacking. I think all I can say is that this camp was really good for the first two day and not the last one.
The most difficult thing about being on camp was not being aloud to stay in our rooms. Just because on that week the YHA was full of people staying. So we had to be quite when we where in our rooms for just a little bit of time. The best dinner that we had would have to be on the 1st night when we had a BBQ. I keep on coming back for more because it was so good. I will always remember when we did surfing and I got up on the broad and got a wave. The funniest part on the camp was just a couple of us kids and all of the teachers just sitting down talking about farting. The interesting thing about staying in a YHA is that is that they close the front office during the day and them don’t reopen at 5:00 in the afternoon. I was happy to get home because I was sick and tried of being on a bus for four hours. I also just wanted to go and sleep in my bed.
The production is based on the book the winter’s tale by Shakespeare. Rosemary and Carolyn were the directors of the whole production. They took little bits form out of the book to make the play. The characters in the play were Leontes, Perdita, Florizel, Polixenes, Mamillius, Archidamus, Mopsa, Cleomenes, Dion, Paulina, Dorcas, Camillo, Autolycus, Shepherd, Clown, Antigonus, Emilia, Hermione. These characters were all played by 8 years and up to year 12. This is a little bit of information about the story. ‘Winter and summer have never mixed but this is the worst case yet. Winter has a heart of ice cold enough to freeze anything summer has a hot ferocity one that can melt anything in its path Put them together and what do you get? You get a winters tale of coarse!’ I think the highlight of the production this year was the costumes. They were so much better this year. They had a whole lot more colour in them. I thinkit could have be improved by having a better CD player. The people who worked behind the scenes were the makeup people, the people who put the microphones on the people, the people who controlled the lights and the people who made the costumes.
