Down the stairs all the way to Scott’s Huts copy room. Scott Hut's copy room looks exactly like his house at Antarctica. His house looks amazing, imagine if we lived there in the freezing cold weather.
Kelly Tarltons got it’s name from a man called Kelly Tarlton. He died in 1985, he died in his sleep. The reason why they named it after him was because he was known for diving and archaeology.
Kelly Tarltons is an amazing place, it looks big when you're inside and it looks small when you’re standing outside. We visited the Penguins first, then the Sting Ray. There were 3 short tail Sting Ray and they were called Phoebe.
The Stingrays were massive and Intelligent. The Stingrays weighed around 200lbs. Cathy was the person who feed the Stingrays, she feed them with little squids. After that we headed off to the Shark tunnel.
In the Shark tunnel there were School Sharks, Broadnose Shark, Sand Tiger, Wobbegong Shark, Sea Turtle and many more. Shark time was over and it was time to go and see the Seahorse and the Sea Dragon.
Seahorses and the Sea Dragons were pretty amazing, it takes a millisecond for a Seahorse to eat one shrimp. Sea Dragons were long and thick, they were beautiful creatures. A minute after watching the Seahorses and the Sea Dragon it was time to head to the classroom and do some activities.
From time to time we all had fun and enjoyed every minute we spent at Kelly Tarltons. It was time to head back to school, I loved every creature they were beautiful and amazing.

The day of Sailing had finally arrived. We had just arrived at Kohimarama just in time to start our session . My class had the opportunity to participate in a program named Sailing , Have A Go! Before sailing we had set up the Yacht. After preparing the Yachts, we rolled it down to the beach. Our task was to reach the tilly out at sea.
Our instructor was Reuben, he helped us with our sailing, he gave us tips about sailing. My partner was Valenisia, she was heavier than me. She wasn't allowed to lean back or else the boat will sink. Going with her was funny and loud, she was controlling the wheel and I was controlling the ropes. Controlling the ropes was fun, because all I had to do was to pull the ropes so the boat can go fast.
“Hurry up and get changed girls!” shouted Mr Slade. “I am finally finished” I thought to myself as we walked out of the trailer. We all hopped into the car exhausted and tired, and headed back to school.

My experience about today’s lesson was to pay attention and listen carefully to what the coach is teaching us. I experience that playing touch can be difficult and it similar to riper. I learnt how to use strategies for getting a tries, our coach gave us simple tips for defending the other players.

Driving for at least 2 hours and a half. From time to time Bounce and Beyond was getting full and full. We then left to the city to check this park out because it looked amazing.
Finally we arrive at the park and all we saw was two massive slides, we all start to laugh. How about the pools? We then went back to the car and it was one long funny dramatic drive. Got to the YMCA pools and it was only two people swimming. None of us wanted to swim expect my younger siblings, it was crack up because it was quiet and we were the only islander there.
Swimming for half an hour and then we go back and check out Bounce and Beyond. It was ok watching them swim because they were swimming just 5 metres away from us. Just as we were leaving more people came, heading to Bounce and Beyond was another long drive. Bounce and Beyond was amazing for a minute but it became boring because the rides were kinda boring.
