This term has been enjoyable because I have moved from a towards 3 to a towards 4 in writing and a towards 4 is where I should be writing. Also, I’m getting above 95 every time we do hundreds club for the past 5 weeks and this is only my first time doing hundreds club before and I hope to keep that up. This term we have had youth town to come out and play Ki o Rahi with us it is a two-team game and it is really fun to play. One of the school trips that we did this term was to go and visit the lake Benmore dam. Meridian energy took us for a tour around the dam and they even took us to see the huge generators that power 200,000 houses around the Waitaki district.
The other day on the first of April Duntroon school went to visit the Benmore dam. Meridian energy took us for a tour around the the dam letting us look inside the dam and see the turbines in action. The reason that we went up to the dam was because last year our topic was sustainable energy and dams are one of the ways to make energy. One very interesting thing that I learnt up there was that it used to be one big river. My favourite part of the day was lunch because it was yummy
