Last week the year 8’s went to a Leadership Camp. While they were away the year 7’s had a Step Up Program. The year 7’s had lots of fun and had lots of activities to do. The first day of the activities started on Wednesday. We first had to make our team names. My Team name was The Mighty Kiwi’s, there was also, Fobalisous, and Terrors.
The first activity was playing human Tic Tac Toe. I didn’t join because the fast people mosty went. My team kept losing and the other teams got points. Then the round two activity came. The round two activity was a singing battle. We had one piece of paper per team and we had to write down songs that we could use for different topics. The first topic was love and we all sang our hearts out. Then we had a number of songs we had to sing and most of them were babyish Like the three little monkeys.
Finally we finished singing and we began to colour in to make our work. The things that we were colouring are going to be one big picture. After that we made motivational quotes. We all coloured them in and decorated them. Then I had to leave.
One thing about that day that I did not like was when we did our chant’s. When the other team’s did their chant’s I was really impressed by their moves and words they were doing. Then there was my group. My group’s chant was the worst one because they all had to join but they didn’t and one kid had to yell something and boy did they yell loud. But most of all we all had fun with what we were doing and we helped each other all the way.
