P7 trip to Voxter: Day 1

On the 14th of May all the P7’s went to Voxter for their leaving treat.

At 10 am we left school to go to the Northlink. When we arrived there they were people from Dogs Against Drugs. They were practicing a real search. We got to see Niko in action and how he reacted to the search.

After that we got a tour of the Hrossey one of five boats of Northlink Ferries. Firstly we got a tour of the bow of the boat. We saw the the Premium lounge, were Jane told us about the chairs. Next we went down to Fire 2 were the fire crew keep all the fire equipment. Ross the cadet showed us what they would wear if there was a fire. Then he led us down to the lower car deck. He let us go through a water proof door which are VERY dangerous! After that we went up to the Bridge or the Wheel House. We weren’t aloud to touch anything, especially buttons. Then we got to see their navigation computer and all the buttons are used for docking. Before we left we got to see their security system and asked questions. We thanked Jane and Ross then we walked to the Clickamin.




When we arrived we got changed into are swimming kits so we could go swimming. Tom couldn’t go swimming so he stayed with Mrs Morrison and Miss Calvert. We all played in the Rapid Rivers, we didn’t do much. After that we went in the Flumes that was fun. Everybody after that went in the Baby Pool. Miss Calvert, Mrs Morrison and Tom were sitting above us. We got told we had to get out of the Baby Pool because they were going to be a swimming class on, so we all went in the Big Pool. We tried to jump in at the same time but it never worked so we decided to get out.


This is us trying to jump in the pool together!

We all met in the Muckle Cafe so we could have lunch. We finished our lunch then we went up to Hayfield park. We played on the equipment not many other people were there so it was good. After that we went back to Clickamin to do our dry side activities. That included: The climbing wall, table tennis and trampoline. We split into two groups. Andy showed us how to climb the climbing wall. Only girls got to the top which we were quite surprised by. The keen climbers got to climb the big wall. They did very well! At 4 pm we got the bus to Voxter it takes quite a while about 40 minutes.

















When we arrived at Voxter Mrs Morrison showed us our rooms. We unpacked then we chilled out. Some people went to the beach, but all of us went to the small trees near the beach. We Climbed the trees and found slugs. Ella was very close to being stuck up a tree, she nearly was at the top! When we got back Chrissie, Timon and Abby set the table for dinner. The others went into one room and chatted. Then finally our dinner arrived! Abby and Chrissie served the food then we all sat together and ate. Kirsty, Abby and Chrissie cleaned up while everyone else chilled out. A while after that we went up to the MASSIVE trees! We played a catchy game, it was fun a few people ran into trees!





When we got back to the Voxter House we all went into the boy’s room. We stayed up until 25 past 11! That was our first day of our trip.

Instruction Writing

This week we were learning how to write instructions. Last week we learned what happened at an Aztec Sacrifice, then we wrote what to do. When we were done we wrote a recipe. I wrote how to make Spaghetti Bolognese.

We learned what to use when we are writing instructions. Bossy verbs were one of the things we learned. Bossy verbs (imperative) are telling people to do something like “go do this” or “go there now”. Another thing we learned was you need to write down what you will need to succeed. I really enjoyed writing instructions.
