My teacher thinks I'm reading but really I am...playing Forza 6 racing my brother and smashing him into the walls.
My teacher thinks I’m listening but really I am...skiing at Mt Ruapehu on the shiny, white snow.
My teacher thinks I’m writing but really I am...in Taupo relaxing in the thermal pools and having fun at mind junction.

I trained everyday for The cross-country at school. We had to run up a hill and back again making sure we did proper stretches first. On the day of the race was feeling confident of doing well. I ran In the 9 year old boys Competitive Race And Came 5th. The ground was very muddy And soft. At the end of the race it felt Like my lungs were Going to explode. The cross-country Was fun I'm glad I did it.

This is an information report about the Ground Weta. I chose to write about this because I found it in the Frankley School Bush and it is a really fascinating and interesting bug to study.
Nocturnal Ground Weta
Did you know that if you enter a ground wetas habitat it will bring its back legs up and hiss at you? I suppose anyone would when someone breaks into their home.
The ground weta lives in forests and burrows. They also prefer to live in holes, under stones and in rotting logs. They need to keep moist and safe from predators. The Frankley School Bush is an ideal place for them to hang out.
The ground weta has lots of predators such as the weka, kiwi, rats, reptiles and other native birds. This is one of the main reasons why the weta is nocturnal (sleeps during the day and comes out at night). They are also an important food source for these predators as they are high in protein. Weta use their spiny legs to scratch their enemies and to protect them from other threats.
A ground weta’s diet is leaves, flowers, seed heads and fruit. Ground wetas also prey on other invertebrates,such as worms and snails.
The ground weta is a fun invertebrate to find out about but because they can bite.

To Paul and Bliss
Thank you for letting us go to Vertical Horizons and the games you made. I enjoyed your activities that you put out for us and the games were great too. I loved blob tag and catch the finger. I liked your dog Bliss, she is fun to play with. I like the flying Kiwi because I enjoy being up in the air and The Zipline was so fast.
The most challenging part of camp was trying not to get knocked out going down the hill in the grass karts and doing all of my activities with a sore foot (after I tripped over in the dark coming back from the glowworms!!)
