This term we are focused on preparing for the Year 6 camp in the first week of December.
There is a high level of excitement amongst the students as they prepare for one of the highlights of their time at HVS.
We are lucky to have a very experienced tramper as a parent this year – Shaun Barnett – who has visited the class and imparted some of his knowledge. Shaun shared some wonderful photos of his experiences and answered questions.
We are spending the nights at Holdsworth Lodge on the edge of the Tararuas and will be completing a day tramp and also a full day visit to Pukaha Mt Bruce Bird Sanctuary. In preparation Ngaio are studying a range of native birds.
On Fridays Jos Abernethy is in Ngaio. The students are all enjoying doing an author study and presenting their research in a variety of ways. She is also leading the students in creating a collage, which should be completed shortly. Here are a couple of nearly completed collages…
I will blog later with some completed collages and some pics from the camp.
