After several weeks, Mrs. Jarman said to the teachers, "We are finally go ing on our trip to One Tree Hill (Maungakiekie)." When Mrs. Barks told Room 12, we danced around full of joy and laughter. So on Wednesday we got into the bus as quick as a wink and so happy!
Getting out of the bus, I skipped along the path. We met by a little park with a big tree which is as tall as a giraffe. The tree was apparently 100 years old. We had a little play at the park and my friends and i rolled down a little slope.
Happily we got up and started to walk up the hill. On the way, we saw freshly shorn sheep grazing on the landscape. When we reached the summit, we could see a spectacular view of Auckland.
We all said to Mrs. Barks, "Can we go to the crater?" Finally we got to go into a real crater with volcanic rocks that had been used to spell names. My friends and I made a castle with the scoria rocks.
I felt so tired when it came to the end of the day. I felt so lucky because I got to go on a trip.
