Expeience Of Bees With Rose

Have you ever seen a beehive before? Well luckily for us year 5 & 6 extensioners 0 got to see one and learn about bees with a lady called Rose.

Information From Rose
Rose told us many different things about bees and their hive. Here are some information of what she said or what we learnt from her. Bees can fly three miles but if there is food ahead they would fly even further. Worker bees can make up half of a teaspoon of honey in their lifetime.

The Enemies Of Bees
The German Wasp and the Varroa Mite are like enemies or a threat to bees. Paper Wasps and German Wasps are similar but the Paper Wasps don’t kill bees. German Wasps can damage our fruit and kill bees so the beekeepers try their best to protect the bees from them especially from Varroa Mites that suck the bees blood or juice from its neck.

We had tons of fun with Rose and the bees, so remember when you around bees do not push on it. Have fun with bees!

It was a long trip to Camp Bentzon. We had to travel there by two transport's, two buses and a ferry. When we got there it was nearly 12:00 so it took us nearly 4 hours to get there.

Jonah Lomu's Death

Have you heard about a man called Jonah Lomu? Well if you don’t know him at all here is what I know about him.

When I heard the news I was shocked and I couldn’t believe it. Jonah Lomu was the youngest All Black player ever and he set the record in this world for rugby. His family sobbed in tears as he no longer lives any further.

He died on the 28th of November and his memorial was held at eden park. There was a really special performance for Jonah and his family on that day. His funeral started on the 1st of December and it’s still running till today.

Now you know about this special man and can tell others about him too. We will remember this special New Zealander and treasure him in our hearts.

Trip To Camp Bentzon

A few weeks ago year 6’s at Pt England School visited Camp Bentzon for 3 nights and 4 days. It was the best time of our lives and we had tons fun. We especially enjoyed eating heaps of nice food.  

It was a long trip, first we took the bus to Sandspit and then we took the ferry from then on to Camp Bentzon. Once we got there we took all big bags to the shade and set off for our hike. During our hike we came to a place with a big pile of stones.

At camp there were many different activities that we did and my three favourites were; Abseiling, Confidence Course and Sailing. There were also night activities; Movie night, Spotlight and Concert night.

We were split into four teams; Katz, Kawau, Mansion and Bentzon but there were A’s and B’s for each team. On the concert night we all the teams got a turn at performing their items fortunately Mansion won, Katz and Bentzon came second and Kawau came last. I was in Katz we were named after the ferry that we went on.

Now you can experience how fun Camp Bentzon is if you could ever go there. Have Fun!
