My Thank you letter from camp.

Parkvale School.
Howard St,


Dear Louise,

I would like to thank you for helping my camp group accomplish things.  It was really thoughtful of you to come to camp with room 10.  Camp was a lot of fun.

My favorite part of camp was rock climbing at flax rock. I learnt that rock walls can be jagged or even inverted.  I also learnt how to climb faster. It was the first time I had gone to flax rock.

I really want to thank you for coming to camp.  I felt a little bit unsafe sleeping in the bivouac.  I felt safer with you and all the other adults around.

Yours sincerely,

Heith Adams.

The kindness boomerang

The Kindness Boomerang
One day when I was about four years old my old friend James and I were playing on the beach. After a while he found a giant crab about 9 centimeters wide.

He tried to pick it up but then it pinched him right across the palm. I ran and got his mum to get a bandage as we wait I give him company. I wondered   when his mum will come.

One month later at school I was walking around then James came and passed me a $30 gift card for the warehouse.

Kindness Is a boomerang the more you throw it the more it comes back to you.

Hedgehogs are cute spiky animals that are sometimes flat in the middle of the road or walking in the middle of nowhere.

Hedgehogs look like baby Porcupines they can grow up to around 25 cm in length. pet Hedgehogs have white fur on their faces and belly. when they are young the spines are white with small shades of very light brown stripes on them. Wild Hedgehogs have brown fur and brown spines with small white stripes on them.

Hedgehogs are half vegetarian and half carnivore. They feed on Insects, Snails, Frogs, Watermelons, Snakes, Mushrooms, Bird eggs, Grass roots, Berries, Melons and Toads. They drink water and sometimes milk. Pet Hedgehogs like milk a bit more than wild Hedgehogs.

Hedgehogs give birth and the don't lay eggs. when Hedgehogs give birth the baby doesn't have sharp spines instead they are born with hair that gets stiffer as they get older and the hairs turn into its spines. Hedgehogs normally have 3-4 newborns but for smaller species they give birth to about 5-6 newborns.

When Hedgehogs hibernate they stop being a warm blooded animal since this uses up too much energy. It's body temperature falls to match the surrounding environment. While hibernating the Hedgehog becomes cold to the touch because of their blood temperature. The Hedgehog stops moving, its breathing stops for long periods of time and the heart rate drops to around 20 beats per minute.

Hedgehogs are small spiky animals that are sometimes mistaken for baby Porcupines. Hedgehogs are cute animals that you can raise to be a good family pet.
