Green Pastures Camp

 Green Pastures Camp

The mud run was very fun and awesome.
It was very muddy for all of us. I couldn´t believe it until now.
Me and my friend Mack dipped our whole head under the mud. It was the most fun and gross thing ever.
Even my dad Pat came in the mud run and it was awesome.
Some people hopped out of the mud because they were tired from the mud run but me and Mack kept going.
My body was muddy but my eyes weren´t.
I can´t wait for the next mud run.

Magic Play Dough

                                      Magic Play Dough                            
 Pick it up and take a squeeze,
 Not too rough be gentle please. 

 If it changes colour red or blue,
then make a wish and it may come true.

 If it does that means you are a special kid. 
 It changed from being white, it did. 

 Lucky me my wish came through,
That ball of dough was not just goo.

 We made magic play dough that changed color. Then we wrote a poem about it. Here is mine.

Writing Prove It 16

I was on my way to school when I was just about there I saw a little green alien in the bush. He had one red eye. When I saw him he jumped quickly out of the bush with a big thump. I fainted. When I woke I found myself in his big spaceship. I shouted loudly. The alien spoke to me and I spoke back.

         Water experiment


  • Mug 
  • Big bowl
  • Gladwrap
  • String/rubber band
  • water
  1. Place mug inside bowl
  2. Fill bowl with water up to halfway of mug
  3. Cover the top with gladwrap and secure with string
  4. Place in a warm sunny spot under the sun.
My prediction was that the mug will fill up with water when the rain evaportes and fills the clouds and rains black down into the mug.

My prediction was correct.

The results
the sun heated the water and it evaporated up towards the glad wrap.  Condensation formed on the glad wrap.  When the water vapour became heavy it dropped into the cup, like rain.  (precipitation)
