Tamaki College - Tech Tuesday


Today at tech we created, "Honey Chicken & Garlic Bread". It was a bit different to the things we usually create. In this lesson we learnt how to cut our chicken, make our own mayonnaise to mayonnaise our chicken. Not to mention we also learnt to create our own garlic butter for our bread.

It was really fun because, it was a new experience for me to learn and try cut my own chicken. To be able to equally mayonnaise it and the fact that I also got to bond with my partner.

I cant wait to see what term 3 has waiting for me and my team.

Diary Writing - Inquiry

 On Wednesday, my group started to create our mini garden just outside of Room 1. It took us girls a while because the soil was a bit to hard to dig, we manged to dig the soil with a bit of help from the boys in Room 1.

We started off with just a box filled with dirt. Than we worked our way up to the stage where the soil became, soft, mushy and mucky.

After all the hard digging, we started to pick all the dead roots and also started breaking down all the big lumps of dirt. Each and everyone of us got a turn to dig, pick and break apart all the dirt.

It was actually quite a lot of fun, not only did we get muddy and dirt, we also got to bond with each other. Having little giggles, create funny flower jokes, being able to play music to keep us all motivated... I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.

Speeches

WALT: Identify feature of persuasive writing

I learnt how to identify features of persuasive writing. I also learnt that, to persuade someone into your speech/presentation you must have... A personal story, thought provoking questions, or a powerful statement. These three things should be the main options to create a hooking speech.

and at least 30 seconds to whether they will listen or not. Our speech was based on graffiti, tell us... Is Graffiti art or Vandalism??

Tamaki College - Tech Tuesday

Last week on Tuesday, us Yr8's went down to Tamaki College for TECH - (Technology).

I was in cooking. That day we were learning how to create Quiche Pie's. But, the main topic was learning about the different types of pastry.

Our teacher told us different methods on how you know your pastry is just right or, when you have over worked it.

She also taught us what ingredients we will need and what type of equipment we will need for that lesson. The results were overwhelming. All the ingredients just swarming in my mouth, just the smell of it made me drool. But that will not be the end of my pastry journey, this is only stage one of our lesson.

Stage two, we will be creating the same thing but... The only difference is that it is going to be one big whole quiche instead of the mini cupcake sized ones you see in the picture. Not to mention it's gonna put all our pastry skills to the test, and to see who was actually paying attention last section.

 My experience from last week would have to be learning most of the different types of pastry. What I think I could of done better was, making sure that I have all my ingredients before I start dicing everything up.
