Today in cooking class we learnt how to make a sponge cake. In class the skills we learnt was how to use an electric mixer. We were still building our confidence in reading the ingredients off the board. It was a very simple dessert to make. We only had 3 ingredients which were eggs, flour and some sugar. The cake was mouth watering. The sponge cake that we made was the ending to all our cooking in food technology.

Summer Learning Journey 2017-2018

Coconut cookies

Make coconut cookies
Today in cooking class we made some coconut cookies. By making the cookies we were building our confidence in reading the ingredients and also in measuring them. The coconut cookies tasted just like the name that they were given. It consisted of coconuts and tasted so much like it too. The cookies were very delicious when they are freshly cooked because they were nice, soft and moist. The cookies tasted amazing but it was just a bit to oily for my liking. I just can't wait to see what we will learn in out next cooking class.

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.
