Cooking Tech – Truffles

Today at tech, our cooking group made truffles. We came in, washed our hands and put our aprons on. Before we began Ms Hamer gave us instructions to grab our materials. After that our second step was to get the oreos mashed up.

The 3rd step was to put the cocoa and condensed the milk inside using the same bowl we mashed the oreos with and obviously mixing the mixture well.  After all that we washed hands ready to roll the dough into little pieces of sphere balls.

After all that Ms Hamer put all the trays of truffles into the fridge to cool down waiting for the moment to eat it. After a couple hours or minutes we stored it inside our lunch boxes.

With the experience in tech I had fun.

Food Tech – Pizza

Today for tech, our group made pizza.

We put our aprons on and washed our hands, we got the cloths, spray bottles and dish wash soaps and put them in our kitchen, Ms Hamer gave us instructions to do when we finished doing all that.

We got our brown board and started cutting the ham ,onions, spinach and tomatoes, for the carrots we didn’t have to cut it, Ms Hamer just asked us to grate it but first we had to wash it, we got our dough and spread tomato sauce on it, Ms hamer said that we could decorate our pizza however.

My partner and I put the cheese, spinach, tomatoes, onions, carrots and ham, we turned our oven on and left it for 5 minutes, Ms hamer told us that it was time to put our pizza in the oven, I took the pizza tray and put it in the oven, we left it there for 10 minutes.

When it was time to take the tray out, I put the mits on and took the tray out, we left it to cool for 2 minutes and then sliced it and took a big bite out of it, it tasted amazing.

Maori tech

Today for tech, Matua Harley asked us to open up a slide and do our own pepeha, a pepeha is like an all about me but in maori, while we were doing our pepeha, we listened to some anthems in different cultures, we worked on our pepeha for 30 minutes and we had to present our work to the group. Here is my pepeha.

The Fun Run

Today in the morning we had a fun run up the mountain.

We also had groups that we were in, group 1, group 2, group 3, group 4, group 5 and group 6, I was in group 5, group 5 is for the top girls who are fast, group 6 was also for fast people but for the boys.

Panmure District, Glen Taylor and Glen Innes were the schools that participated in the fun run, group 1 in all the schools had to run first, but we had to wait for the teachers to get to the top before us, so they can tick us off and tell our time.

Group 1 ran when they were told to, then group 2 went, and it went on and on, then it was group 5, we ran our hardest, and went past many people, I was so tired because there was a slope that we had to run through, my friends and I still got through it then we walked, we picked up the pace when we were almost at the end.

We finished the run and everyone was cheering once we got to them, I was so happy to finish the race, we also had sausages and a water bottle, the sausages were very yum.

I did better than the last time I ran up the mountain.


Maori Tech

Today for tech, my group and I were doing our own pepeha, we did it on a slide so then it would be easier to present, Matua Harley said that we only have 20 minutes to do it, then we looked down to our laptops and started working.

Matua harley said that we have to present it to the class when we all finish, some students finish before 20 minutes, so it was time to present our work to the group, Matua harley turned the projector on then pulled out the HDMI plug to plug into our laptops, one by one we all presented, Matua harley was impressed by how the students made their presentations.

Maori Tech

Today for tech, my group and I were learning about some words in maori, we learnt some animal names in maori like, ruru for owl and maki maki for monkey, we learnt so much that it was time for a game to play, we played last card first, and it was so funny because some people were so confused, then we played a game of rakau and then we had to go in a circle and say what our favourite thing that we had done today.

Matua Harley was so proud of us being sensible, so he said that we could play another round of  rakau, We played 2 rounds and then the bell rang, we ran to put our shoes on then went outside to the bus, we had so much fun.  Maki Maki (Monkey) Ruru (Owl)

Figures of Speech

Today my class and I were learning about figures of speech, we came across a lot of new words like personification, simile, metaphor, hyperbole and many more.

The meaning of personification is when a non-living thing is doing a human quality like for example, the trees were waving to me in a distance , the word simile means when comparing 2 things using the words like or as for example, Billy is fast like a cheetah.

Metaphor means like when comparing 2 things without using the words like or as, and hyperbole means when something is bigger than it really is like for example, I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.

I had so much fun learning about figures of speech and I also made a slide to describe to siblings  using similes, and here it is.
