🍴 Cooking Class 🍴

One more week to go of cooking class! Throughout the morning I've been thinking about what we could be making but nothing hit me. Once the bus arrived everyone was so hyped to go to Technicraft. As we slowly walked to our classes I could feel tiny droplets of rain coming down on me. As the rain started to get heavier and heavier we all rushed to find some shelter.  Luckily someone kindly opened the door for us and we were able to enter. As we settled ourselves down, Mrs Tuipolotu told the class ''We're making Blueberry Muffins''. My face literally went red, that's how nervous I was. But I enjoyed it anyway.

School Begins 😁

I woke up extremely excited to go to school. I actually thought that 2 whole weeks without any learning and no friends was a bit too long. On the way to school I felt a slight chill heading towards me. As I slowly walked closer to class I spotted all my friends, I jumped with joy. As soon as the bell rang everyone walked casually to their daily fitness. I think that my first day back at school was really fun!!

Lights, Camera, Action πŸŽ₯

For the past few weeks a group of students from Rooms 11 and 12 had the chance to create a slide presentation for Te Oro. Only the best students were chosen,

The students who were chosen were those who showed high standard in art and writing. They were myself, Athens, Katrina, Saluselo, Mika, Min Zin, Jack and Maia. For the first few days we spent time organising our ideas so that we knew what we wanted on the slides.

My plan was to create an inforgraphic about four different pests, around our local area. Our main purpose was to  make it interesting, creative and entertaining. 

Now there is only one more week to memorise and focus on our learning.

I Earned My Monitors Badge πŸ“›

It's not that hard looking after a class for 10 minutes while the teacher is gone for lunch. But it is a huge responsibility to keep the classroom in order, and have the students listen to you. Yesterday I received my monitors badge for 2017. I received one last year but that was when I was kind of a beginner, and I was still learning to be a responsible leader and monitor. 

Anyway I'm proud that after 1 year of learning how to be a responsible and successful monitor, I am finally a real one.

We've started the term off with a lot of Maths! But I really love it! Maths is something I love doing at school although it can get a bit tricky most of the times. These last couple of weeks we've been learning about multiplication and division but now we're onto fractions. Our main focus is to use efficient ways to work out our problems that have been given to us. It doesn't really sound hard and they're not just normal equations.

Teamwork Leads To Success πŸ“š

This year it's all about Learn, Create and Share! Our class is combined with Room 11, and we're always working together and sharing our ideas with each other when we are learning. We're all preparing and studying for our upcoming tests. Since the year 8 students will  be heading off to college next year there will be more opportunities and challenges to face. Now is the time to set our goals.

Food Tech 🍳

This year the year 7 and 8's have been going to Tamaki College every Wednesday for Technicraft. The subjects the college have are Wood and Cooking. The teacher for Wood is Mr Grundy and for Cooking is Mrs Tuipolotu. I have recently been cooking and we've been making a lot of creative foods. My favourite recipe so far would have to be the quiche because it came out how I wanted it to be and it tasted really good.
