Back To School

The holidays are over and Term three has started. I am so excited to be back at school and keen to learn. First day back and we have started to look back on our learning back in term two to refresh our memory. This term there are lots of things to look forward to like netball, rugby, athletics and cross country. After skipping back in term two we went on a two week holiday. In the holidays I had nothing to do so I registered on the winter learning journey. A blogging program with schools in the Manaiakalani cluster.

My Big Journey

Image result for new zealandOn my amazing journey I've learned a lot of new things like places I didn't know that are in Auckland, and new things I learned about the Maori culture. The things I mostly liked on My Kiwi Road Trip was all the different places we went to go and visit. What I liked was the native bird I got to adopt which is called a Morepork, it looked so cute and it was so fluffy.

At tech today we made Coco muffins with chocolate chips. My partner was Tyron and he did the dry  ingredients. I had to do the wet ingredients, the ingredients I used was half a cup of sugar, half a cup of oil and on egg. Once we were finished with all the ingredients and put them in the bowel then we had to whisk the wet ingredients. When Tyron was finishing whisking the dry ingredients we had to combined both bowels. Tyron did the dry ingredients and his ingredients were half a cup of S.R.F and a 4 cup of coco. When Tyron was was finished with the ingredients then we slowly pored the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Once the dry ingredients were in there we had to mix carefully. Then we had to pore the chocolate chips in side the bowel with mixture and start mixing. Then we had to get out the cupcake tray and put the muffin cups in side the muffin tray. Then we had to get a table spoon and put a spoon full of batter and put in the oven. Set your oven to 180d then start to tidy up why'll we were waiting. When your muffins are brown on top and are starting to rise then poke a stick in the middle and if there is nothing on the stick  then it is finished.

Once we had chosen the design that we were going to be working on. Once we had finished our design, we wrote our names on the broad.
Once he had signed it he gave us a piece of wood so that we could measure our drawing. He then came and checked it. Once he had checked it he came and gave us a piece of wood. The we lined it up with a ruler and made sure that it was perfect. Once he has checked it with a ruler then he will give us the equipment that we need. Then we will saw the lines that you have lined up. Then he will come and check it. He will give you the equipment that you need to finish your work.

Over the past weeks we have been given very heavy rains which caused lost of mud to go where the water comes form so it is harder to send the water to our homes.
