Chocolate muffins

Name: Limi 13 March 2018

Chocolate Muffins
In food tech today we learnt how to make chocolate muffins. It was just the same as making coloured muffin but instead of adding food colouring, we added in Coco powder. We learnt how to fold in the batter and not mix it. We also learnt how to measure the ingredients and how to read it as well. Today’s lesson was really fun and I can’t wait to see what we will be cooking next.

Pasta salad

On Tuesday the 27th of February, in food tech we had the chance to make a pasta salad. While cooking this salad we learnt how to slice and dice some onions and tomatoes. During our time in the kitchen we also learnt how to cook pasta and also how to fry ham and onions. Another technique we learnt was how to properly mix the pasta when we added in another ingredient. For this pasta salad we had pasta, tomatoes, onions, ham, corn and some mayo. When we had the chance to taste the salad it didn't have too much flavour so to tried to give it a little oomph with a little salt.

Multi coloured muffins

Multi coloured muffins

On Tuesday the 13th of February my class and I had cooking class. For class that day we were learning how to make multi coloured muffins. We Learnt how to make the batter with only 6 ingredients. We also learnt how to fold the batter instead of mixing it. After that our teacher taught us how scoop the batter and place it into the tin without any batter getting on the table/floor/tin. It is called multi coloured muffins because one of the main ingredients is food colouring. We baked them for 15 minutes at 180oC and waited patiently. When they where done we had a nice pinked coloured muffin ( we used pink food colouring ). It tasted really nice and it was really easy to make.

Looking into the future

Summer Learning Journey - Looking into the future

Activity 1 : What would you like to do when you finish school? Would you like to work in a specific job? Would you like to study at university? What would you study? Maybe you’d even like to move overseas. Share your thoughts and ideas on your blog.

When I finish school I would hope to go to university. At the university I will study to become a flight attendant with my best friend so that we can travel the world together and get paid doing it. I also need to work on my being nice skills and it might really help. After a couple of year doing that job I will go back to University and do Law school because I want to travel the world then go for my true passion which is debating. But I will still live with my parents only to look after them but if they dont want me in the house then im gone, but if not the only time i will ever leave is when they leave first.

Activity 2 : Tell us which of the three cars you would choose and why.

I would choose the modern day car because as me and my once close friend would say, The past is in the past and the future is currently unknown, that's why the present is our gift. And right now my gift would of also been a new car.

Activity 3 : Write a description of what New Zealand will be like at that time (80 – 90 years from now). What kind of houses will people live in? What will they eat? Where will they work?

Fire rages over cities, rubbish piled amongst houses and overflowing the seas. waters from clear blue to dark mucky black. Houses so small not even a family of 4 can fit. people fine dining at the fish and chip shop, smokers throwing hundreds away day after day after day. Not a single animal to be heard when all is silent. Not even the insects would sing at night. hospital beds overflowed by people with poisoning after eating fish from the contaminated waters. people still debating on weather we should save the seagulls or just build more car parks for the motel and hotel across the road from the beach. No one ever goes to the beach, only because the sun burns, its gone way to hot for any one to handel. This is the future I believe we will be living if we keep acting like this.

Moana is a movie based on a man who is in many maori myths, his name is Maui. In the movie he becomes a friend with the main character, and her name is moana. Moana is said to be the next chief of her village but her heart is drawing her pass the reef. ( keep in mind they are never aloud to go past the reef ). The day that her Grandmother was passing her last words to Moana was to take the heart of Te Fiti and restore is with the help of Maui. ( the heart of Te fiti is a very important ston that Maui the demigod of the wind and see stole. now Moana's village is in danger coz everything is dying ) Moana was also chosen by the sea to restore the heart of Te Fiti. So moana sets off to find Maui and when she does she demands him to restore the heart, but he refuses. When he finally agrees they are set out on a mission to restore the heart, but on their way they come across many task that they have to complete and concor to carry on through to Te fiti. When they arrive Moana and Maui come across a big monster called Te Ka. ( Te Ka is a lava monster, Maui also has his hook by now ). Te Ka was in the way of the island of Te Fiti so Maui said to turn back but moana got over her head and said NO!. She then charged forward and when Te Ka striked Maui saved her by deflecting the shot with the hook. After that They made got into an argument then they made up. They got past Te Ka only to find out that Te Ka is the island of Te Fiti. When Moana put back the heart the lava fell off and it started to turn into flowers. Te Fiti repaired Maui's hook and everyone went back home. Well except Moana and her Village, they now voyager the seas looking for new lands to discover.

You have to get up early, you have to be committed to your job and do it everyday. Its cool how they shave the sheep.

No I don't want to be a farmer when Im older, for one its because i'm planning on being a lawyer and two because I don't think I would be able to handle such a big and important job.

Social Systems

Summer Learning Journey - Social Systems

Activity 1 : Imagine that you had to form a coalition government with two other people.  Who would you choose to partner with?

I would form a coalition with my best friends. My best friend Moana because she will make us laugh but also make sure we get our task done. I would also choose my other best friend Tuakana, because she is really smart, she can have a really great time but she also knows when to be very serious. I also chose them because they are both funny and kind and the fact that we are best friends shows me that we already have each others back.

Activity 2 : Post a picture of your hometown and provide a list of three things that tourists, like us, could do if we came to visit. What do you like most about your hometown?

The pictures that I have provided are just little pieces of my amazing home town. Looking at Glen Innes town center might not be that appealing to you all but once you really go its like nothing you have ever experienced before. From the people to the food nearly everything at GI is amazing. The people of my home town might be scary at first glance but once you give them a nice smile and wave hello they won't seem like any threat. While I live in this amazing yet small town there are many things that you can do you have fun and many advantages. For one there is a place in GI called Te Oro ( its the first picture I put up ). Te Oro I a music and art center, equipped with high tech and they have something amazing going on everyday. We also have a swimming pool, the swimming pool might not look cool but its really fun if you go with the right people. Oh, and the library is also a fun place to go to. Yes, I know that the first thing you think of is boring. But, In a busy place like GI the library is like a spa, you can just relax. Another thing that we have up our sleeves is that we are only take about 10 - 20 minutes to get to Auckland city.

Activity 3 : Draw a floorplan of your classroom and upload it to your blog. Describe what is special about your classroom and why you designed it this way.

The reason why my classroom is unique is because we have our own personal playground. so everyday we can play by ourselves if we want to. We also have a kitchen because our teacher will do cooking with us every day and teach us new things and what to do and what not to do in a kitchen. We also have different shaped tables so that the shapes in our class is not all circles or all squares. We also have large cubby holes so we can fit our bags and school supplies in it. Our class is full of different colours. The walls are yellow with green stripes, and the carpet is light blue with red poke dots. And I forgot to mention 2 things. Our class is right across from the toilet and while our teacher has fun teaching her students have fun being taught.

My sport hero would have to be John Wall. Okay, so many of you might not know him and that is fine. So, John Wall is a NBA player. He plays for the Washington Wizards. Now John Wall to others might not be the best player ever but he is to me. He inspires me so much and to me when he plays he plays with the desire and the fire in his heart that is telling him to win for his family and friends and even some people he has lost. Like for instance When Miyah a little 6 year old girl who had cancer passed. When I watched the game I could see that he was giving his all and he was out to win for her. But other than that it would have to be him, if not him then stephen curry, lebron james, steve smith or lamelo.
