Today at food tech we started to make the mince filling of the pie. The ingredients we used were mince, onions, cornflour, hot water, oil, soy sauce and nutmeg. We diced up the onions and mixed hot water with the cornflour. We also mixed the soy sauce and the nutmeg together. We are going to take the pies home after we finish making the second half of the pie.

Kiwisport - Futsal/Tennis

After morning tea LS2 went down to the Riverside Sports Club to play Futsal and Tennis. We were split up into two groups. Group A and Group B. I'm in Group B. We started off learning how to play tennis with Neville. I learnt how to bounce and hit the ball. I found it hard at first but it got easier at the end. Next Group B swapped and went to play Futsal with Martin. We were split in the three teams. black, red and white. I was in the red team. We were playing quite good but unfortunately we lost both of our games. I would like to thank Martin and Neville for taking the time to teach us the techniques of Futsal and Tennis.

Kokako DLO

This is my DLO about the North Island Kokako that I made with Daniel and Eric. We researched about the Kokako because we place we went to for camp is called Kokako lodge. Also, there are two types of Kokako: The North Island and the South Island Kokako. We did the North Island type because the camp was in the North Island.

Walking with fear...

This is my five minute recount about my favourite moment about camp.

I checked my harness for the 17th time. I was ready. I started to get higher and higher. My heart was pounding like a loud drum. As I was reaching the top, my wobbly legs started to slip. I didn’t give up so I held on tight and continued to climb. When our instructor let me back down I was relieved.

We then had to climb again but it wasn’t the same one. It was much higher! I grabbed onto the ladder and started to climb. After carefully climbing I reached the beam. I walked really steadily to the other side. Rain drops started to fall on me. Each drop shook me a little bit. I regretted climbing on it then. I paused at the end of the beam and took a breath. My group then started to cheer for me. That motivated me to keep on going.

I hobbled backwards to the middle of the beam and was then told to do push ups. I felt really nervous. After I did my push ups I was let down. Never in my life was I so happy to be on the ground.

Conserving Water

Today Oh Hsen, Fraidoon and I created a DLO about why people in Auckland should conserve water. In our DLO we put in why this is happening, how we can make a difference and the consequences. One way to save water is taking shorter showers.

Food Tech

Today at Tamaki College, the year eights had their cooking lesson. I worked with Sylis again. Last week we made mini quiches so today we made bigger ones. The ingredients we needed were onions, cream, cheese, bacon, flour, egg and butter. We diced the bacon and butter. We mixed the egg and cream together and the flour and butter together. Once we finished that we got our trays and put all our ingredients in. We waited for around 15 to 20 minutes. When it came out it smelled delicious.
