Field Studies Story 3

On the first night on camp we slept in tents.  I had never slept in a tent before. It was awesome except there was four people in one tent and the floor was hard. Eventually we slept. We slepted for about 5 hours until we  were woke up because of Shaolun. The problem was that it is really easy to hear people talking even if you are in your tent.

 Then about one hour later James woke up because his watch was showing the wrong time. His watch was showing 6 o’clock, but it was in fact 1 o’clock in the morning. I thought about getting really angry for waking me up but I realised I should be principled an just tell them politely that we should get some sleep because we will need it for the following day.

Field Studies Story 2

Before we went canoeing we did some rock climbing. We went on a micro bus to the site to rock climb. I thought that the rock climbing wall would only be like 15 meters high or something, but I was shocked to find out that it was in fact 30 meters high! I was really scared. But I knew that I should be a risk-taker by trying to do it.

When I had started it had seemed quite easy, but when I had got quite high I had lost my nerve, I tried really hard to keep on going but I couldn’t do it.

 After a while I was  waiting to try other parts of the wall I saw Shion try one of the walls, she didn’t seem that confident, Mrs Hamada asked how far she wanted to go, she pointed at the end of one meter. In fact she climbed all the way to the top! I told Mrs Hamada that this is really a good example of being a risk-taker. After that long experience we began are canoeing experience.

Field Studies Story 1

On the second  day of our grade 6 field studies We went canoeing. I was with Ryu and Shaolun. It was really fun!…. But there was one problem. When we had got onto the canoe we couldn’t control it.  The problem was that we were not working together. We started of head straight into the middle of the lake. Even though we had no sense of direction it was still fun. Then shaolun thought about a cunning plan. If someone told us when we should pull with our rows then we can go in the right direction. Shaolun communicated when we should row. Eventually we caught up to the people in the front. It was going smooth until we stopped for a little swim. When we finished swimming we had the problem of getting everyone on the boat…. and that Shaolun had lost one of his shoes!

Ryu was a mixed blessing. Very strong , but what comes strength comes weight. The first time we tryed to put everyone on the boat the boat flipped. We found out that first we should put Ryu in first, then shaolun, then me. That worked fine for the first stop, but the next stop we did the same thing, except that I couldn’t get on! we had to take the boat to some rocks and make it stable enough for me to get on. After that long Canoeing journey we finally started to return to the campsite.
