The Forty Coats Man.
By Jared Anderson
The main character Jerri is new to the countryside and finds a man running down her next door neighbor's house then disappeared and she wants to know who it was so she tries to find the person then pecs though the window of a house and sees a shadow in the window.

The book's strength is that it grabbed your attention from the beginning and the book is great.

My response is that it had lots of good words. Every word I read I just wanted to more and more.The book was great and I loved the whole thing.

Camp roil

In the morning I got up so excited I could run a marathon. I was going to camp today . I got all my stuff together and put on my day pack then went to the car and waited for mum to open it.

When we got there I got all my stuff out of the car and went to class. I put all my stuff in the cloak bay and put all my stuff down and went to play.When the bell rung I ran to class so we can do the roll. After the roll we went over rules at camp.

Day one at camp:
We all got into our drivers car and headed off to the Waka at Clive river.At clive river we had some morning tea and put on our life jackets.After we put on our life jackets on we lisened to the man for 20 minutes and that is ages about the boat nagti kahungunu.On the waka the man shouted out words in maori.We had to turn the  waka twise and It was an amazing experince.Then after that we where allowed to take a photo with the weapons there and I was the 2nd person to hold a weapon and take a photo.

After the waka we went to the park in napier next to the Hot Chick and had lunch there and played on the playground. We were also allowed on the rocks to find some crabs.Heith found the biggest crab.

After the playground our driver took us to the napier port to go fishing.    
I used brees sisters fishing rod and then brees mum put a hook on the fishing rod and then I started fishing. I nearly got a fish but it slipped off the hook but then I kept trying to catch another fish but I failed to get one up.

After fishing we finally went to camp Roil. At camp Roil we had to set up our bivouac and get our stuff out of the trailer and put into our bivouac.My sleeping group was Jadyen,Ethan, and I.We had to put our matrises out and put our sleeping wear on our matrises.

After we put all our stuff into our bivouac we started to cooking our dinner with our team my is braeden,kyrah,bree,Heith and I. For our dessert we had an orange chocolate muffin the orange was the outside of the muffin and for our dinner we had  burgers and some potato chips.We put our orange chocolate muffins on the campfire.

After we had our dinner and dessert we had to go to sleep and not wake up until 7:00 in the morning and not allowed to waking up any later then that so we all went to sleep some of us looked at our stuff and that was wet so Ethan and I had to sleep in the tent so our stuff can’t get wetter.

Day two at camp:
After our long sleep we all woke up and some people got up a little later so and it was 6:45 in the morning so we all went and play outside and play on the bikes at Camp Roil and some of us played handball with a basketball there and some of us just    
walked around.

After we played we started cooking our breakfast our team had spaghetti on french toast and eggs.We cooked it on our stove and it took a while to cook but in the end it was still nice.

After our breakfast we did the Amazing Race. Our first challenge we had to make a human pyramid and then when we finished Heiths mum had to take a photo of it .After that one of our teammates had to eat a little cup fill of rice bubbles and find 2 happy faces on the bottom my team was the 2nd team to get a kayak and go to the stream with a paddle.We forgot our lifejacket so I had to go back to the shed to get a life jacket but there was no more left so I went back to the stream and The Kings had 2 life jackets so Jagdip gave me his so we can  kayak in the river and I got in so I paddled as fast as I could and just got there before The Kings then I got out and Bree got in the kayak and paddled backwoods to the a checkpoint and it was a puzzle so Heith made it was one of those plane ones and we finished in 5 minutes.Then Heith got inside the kayak and paddled all the way down the stream to the end then we ran through the cation tape and came 3rd.

After we did all our team stuff we headed off to FLAX ROCK in flaxmere the man there told us how to be safe while we were climbing then we did some bouldering which is when you go around the rocks then some of the liter people got hooked onto a harness and started climbing. After everyone had a turn at bouldering we got into groups and then we all started climbing Nazareth was 1st person to the
top and I was 2nd person to make it up to the top and on every climb I made it up to the top so that was good for me.

my letter



Dear: Aaron

Thank you for letting us climb at Flax Rock. We all had fantastic time there and we all appreciate what you did for us and we all enjoyed you being their to keep us safe very much.

My favorite thing was climbing at Flax Rock with you. It was fun because it was my first ever time rock climbing so it was fun but also scary at the same time but I knew that you or an adult would be there just incase I wanted to come down.

I really wanted to thank you once again for letting us climb at Flax Rock so I give all my appreciation for what you did for us.  We all had a amazing time and it was fun you being there so thank you again for letting us climbing at Flax Rock.

Kind regards,

Jared Anderson.
