Manaiakalani


Yesterday on Wednesday we went to the Manaiakalani Film Festival at the movie theater.  We went by bus there. Everyone was so excited to go watch there films that they made. When we got there we had to wait for a little.

When we were inside we waited for the other schools to go because they finished watching the films. When we went in we got told where to sit and to sit with. When it started the lights turned off and it was very dark. 

When the movie started I got excited. Our movie was 2nd to start. After watching all the movies we went back to school. I really enjoyed it and it's sad it had to end.

In The Holidays😀

The school holidays were amazing. I did many things in the holidays. I played games, watched movies, hang out with my cousins and my uncle came from Palmerston North. I was so excited for the holidays and I missed school a little.

Every morning I play on my PS3 console with my friends, cousins, auntie and my uncle. It's so much fun playing with them. when it's night time I like to stay up and play games and watch netflex and yotube.

After 1 week my uncle went back to Palmerston North to go to work. He works in the army with his girlfriend Camball. He has 2 children, both girls and ones 5 and the other is 2. They are so cute. I wish the holidays could last longer.

😥School Holidays Are Over😢

It was fun in the holidays because I can sleep in and play games every night and evening, but since holidays are now over I cant sleep in anymore or play games in the middle of the night like I always do, but since school is back kids and students are now back to school, working and learning.

 But since I am back at school I can finally work and learn about new things that I haven't known already. I am really happy that I'm back to school because I miss doing maths, reading and writing everyday. That's why I love going to school.

 Mr Pineda handed out sheets that have our restaurant drawings on it. When we were done finishing off our restaurants I started drawing goku with Katrina. After that we went back to school.

Cross country! 2017

Today after circuits we usually run around the court but today is different. Instead of running around the court we ran around the block. It was really tiring running around the foot path and up the hill. I was huffing and puffing the whole way. We all had to do two laps. Doing one lap is not that tiring until you rich the corner, it gets hard trying not to stop. Running is really tiring but until you keep running you'll get use to it.

Technocraft(Graphics!) Drawing

Today we are no longer doing cooking because we changed. The year 8's are doing building in with Mr Grundy and the year 7's are doing graphics. I was so excited that we are doing graphics. When we were at graphics our teacher was Miss Kasipale. She was our realiever for Mr Stag. She told us to draw our name 6 cm's high and the words must be 6 cm's long. When we started the art, Mr Stag came and took over for Miss Kasipale. Well we were working he was helping some of our students that don't know how to do art drawing. I started off making a snake for my S and I made a penguin for my O. The penguin was spray painting on the L which looked like a wall but in 3d. My 2nd O was a egg in a nest and my M was wood forming a table. My N was wood stacked up in to three and my O was Earth. Well I was working I saw Mr Stag talking in a barney voice. We were all laughing and singing along with him. It was amazing. By the time I finished my art work Mr Reid came and said it's time to get back on the bus and go back to school. We said our goodbyes and then went back to the school. And that's what we did at Graphics!

😞last week for cooking(Making Nachos) 😱

Today is the last day for cooking and after cooking we are doing graphics. Graphics is when you have to draw, paint and create. I am gonna miss cooking because I love making food and eating it. We made Nachos today and we used Doritos as nachos. So first thing I use is to get a frying pan and a wooden spoon.The first ingredient is two garlic. We first take the skin off and then we crush it with a rolling pin and then we put the pan on the stove and then get the crushed garlic and put it on the pan. After that we turn the stove onto medium and then cook it in till its cooked right. After that we put mince on it and cut it to small pieces. When it is in to small pieces, put the sauce on top of the mince and then stir it gently. After that we put cheese on top of it and then we grab the nachos and eat it! And that's how you make Nachos!

Netball!

This is the first week and Mr Reid is training the netball team for the inter schools. I am not in the netball team because I am not good at it. If you don't know what netball is, it is a game that involves a ball and hoops. It is kind of like basketball but when you have the ball in your hands you cant move. If you move then its a hand over which means you have to give the ball to the other team. I hope our netball team wins the inter schools.

😀Technology TamkiCollage😋(Making Chicken Curry!)😋

Wednesday 26/7/17

Today we went to technocratic and went to Mrs Tuipulotu's cooking room. When we were there we had to wear our aprons and tie it and then wash our hands. When we finish doing all that we had to find a table with our buddy's. My buddy was Katrina. When we sat down Mrs Tuipulotu was explaining us what we need to cook the chicken curry on. She told us to get out a pot and a frying pan. The next step was to grab a bowl with 4 pieces of chicken and we had to put it in the pot and fill the pot up with water. The third step was to put the pot on the stove and then turn the stove on high so the chicken can cook faster. The fourth step was to grab the frying pan to put the ingredients for the curry sauce to put onto the chicken. I did not remember all the ingredients but ill tell you what I know. I think we used curry powder, black pepper, salsa I think and that's all I know. After that Mrs Tuipulotu starts to taste the sauce, if the taste isn't right then she adds brown sugar to make it taste right. After that we check our chicken and see if its cooked and when I checked mine it was cooked. The next instruction was that we have to tip the pot into the stray so the water can go through the holes and the chicken cant go in the sink with the water. After that we tip the chicken into the pan with the sauce and then put it back onto the stove and then mix it together. After mixing and stirring we grab a plate and Mrs Tuipulotu gives us some rice to eat with the chicken. If there are some left over we put more onto the chicken and there you have it! A chicken curry.

St Kent day

On Thursday we went to St Kent in a bus and we were split up into groups so there was group 1,2,3,4. Group 5, 6 and group 2 got split up because they had too many people. I was in group 2 and I was moved to group 1. In group 1 we went to the basketball court and we played master. If you don't know what master is, it is a game that people have to line up. One person has to be the master and the person in front of the line has to try and get the ball in the hoop and if they get it in then they become the master but if they don't get it in then they have to go to the back of the line. After that we played bang. Bang is a game that they have to make a circle and a person has to stay in the middle of the circle and shout out names of people. If they call your name you have to duck down and the people on your right and left sides they have try and shoot each other, but not with real guns just their hands. When they shoot each other they say bang! The first person who says bang the other person sits down because they're out. After that we moved on to the next game. The next game was capture the flag. After capture the flag we all gathered up and sang a happy birthday song to Musica because it was his birthday! We sang the song in Maori followed in English. After that we had to go back in the bus and go back to Ruapotaka School!

😀Baking Chocolate chip muffins!!😮

She told us that we are baking chocolate chip muffins. We were excited! After that she told us the ingredients. Then she told us to grab out our bowls and things we need to make the muffins. We grabbed our ingredients and put it in a bowl and mixed it together. When we finished putting all the ingredients in the bowl, we put it in our trays and then we put in our oven and set our heat up to 180 degrees. After a few minutes it came out like this.
