Nacho Time!

Today at Technicraft we made nachos! I was with Mrs Tuipolotu, we all had one bowl of cheddar cheese with beans and some sauce. We combined the oil and the garlic to change it to brown.

We were then instructed to get some mince so we could stir it well with the brown - coloured garlic. We then had to mix the mince with the brown colored garlic by also cooking the meat into a brown coloured, cooked mince! We then stirred and combined all of the cooked garlic with the cooked mince. Mrs Tuipolotu then told us to pour the cheddar cheese with the beans inside of the frying pan that we used to put the mince and the garlic.

We then mixed all of the ingredients and we poured them onto the Doritos chips!

As you can see it tastes delicious!

Our Duffy Achievers!

Today we had our casual whole School assembly together, as Mrs Vickers talked she was very shocked of how much people didn't know why we sing our national anthem. She then told all of Ruapotaka School that Room 12 through Room 1 had to at least go to Mrs Vickers  and tell her 7 New Zealand facts This Friday. Now was when the prefects came up and talked about what we had to do to keep our whole School/environment clean. Mrs Vickers then said to us, "since I want you to improve on your writing and reading, I have brought one book for each class."  Mr Reid chose pupuke and Mrs Golder chose Katrina!

Congrats Katrina & Pupuke!


Banana, Banana, Banana!

Today at Technicraft we made banana muffins. First we had to wash our hands in case we spread germs on the food. We had to grab out the muffin tray. We mixed the banana, butter and eggs with care. Then we had to add more sugar and flour so it wouldn't be watery and it would come out incorrectly. We then mix/stir so we could mix the ingredient and it could taste astonishing!

We slotted the required materials into the muffin tray and we poured our mixture of, banana, butter and eggs into the muffin cups and we put them in the oven for 20 - 25 mins.

(And this is how it turned out)
As you can see, the muffins were overcooked a little and it tasted a bit bitter.

We Just Went Viral!

Today at our Pasifika assembly we presented our astonishing items and performances. They were related to the cultures of Samoan/Tongan. Rooms 1, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 & room 12. Room 1 performed the "Sasa", the Sasa is a traditional Samoan dance. Room 1 executed the job successfully.

Next was Room 2.

They were singing, "Le Aute". They sang with harmony, melody and bass! We all gave them a clap! Next was room 6! They gave us a model of the dresses of Samoan & Tongan. We have never had a catwalk, ever in our whole schools. They were spectacular dresses. Room 7 performed a jump jam dance that they do for fitness. Room 9 sang a song, room 10 and then it is us. Room 12, we sang a song

What I Did At Technicraft For Our Last Day!

What I did at Technicraft we were final finishing our finial touches for our amazing and extraordinary projects/woodwork. It was our last day of tech so we had to be a little bit faster than normal and so we could take our projects home. It was very fun and exciting to finish our projects because in someday in the future when we learn about woodwork and joints we will be much more experienced! When we were working we all learned something, it's that we must always make something that really is possible.

Welcome Back To School Everyone!

It has been 2 weeks since we have come back to school. It is unfortunate that the 2 weeks of school holidays has ended. It is now a new term and harder challenges but good moments are anticipated. Cross country is coming up and we have been improving our fitness for this day. People from this room have been doing holiday blogging from the winter learning journey and perfecting our spectacular tones by singing our karaoke version of Moana. You can come this Thursday to watch us perform. Today we have our improved readers group!

Congratulations on achieving your new reading goal Tyron & Tuposeini!

And good job on those who have read over the school holidays!
