Technology(Pasta Salad)

Today for technology I was so excited because I knew we were gonna make something nice.When we got there we were too early that the period in our teacher's class wasn't finished.We waited for a little bit then we got to go inside.When we got inside we put on our aprons and also washed our hands.We got into our groups and when I looked over to the other table it was only my friend Tevita on it so me and my buddy Matthew told him to come sit with us.This experience has helped me to bond more with my friends and also learnt how to cook.The challenge for me today was trying to make the best 1 but it all turned out the same.Here is how you make a pasta salad.

Matariki Rap

Today I wrote a Rap with 2 of my friends.Theyre names are Tevita and Metui.This experience was easy for me because rhyming and flowing is kind of what I like to do.The challenge for me today was coming up with rhymes that relate to matariki.The part I found easy was saying it.Here is the rap my group came up with.
Matariki Rap
This is a rap about Matariki
A cluster of stars shining over Auckland city
It comes in either late may or june
Shining bright in the night just like a full moon
For many of the Maori it’s a new year
Light shining from the sky like a chandelier
Helping the crops grow for the people
Planting them is pretty easy and simple

They are way past mercury and mars
Metui is gonna tell you what they are
In Matariki there are seven of the stars
Shining brighter in the sky like lights from a car

It may be winter but we still celebrate
Waiting for the stars we just can not wait
Having a feast with so much to eat
Crispy chicken and big rare meat

118-year old painting discovered in Antarctic hut

An “almost perfectly preserved” watercolour painting has been discovered in an historic hut in Antarctica, dating back more than 118 years.
The painting, dated 1889, is of a ‘Tree Creeper’ bird. It was painted by scientist Dr Edward Wilson who died alongside Captain Robert Falcon Scott and three others on their return from the South Pole in 1912.
It was found at Cape Adare and was originally discovered in September last year among dust, mould and penguin excrement.
The find was kept confidential until now to allow the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust to preserve more than 1500 other artefacts.
The Antarctic conditions were the perfect way to preserve the painting.
Water colour paintings are particularly susceptible to light so the fact this work has spent more than a hundred years tightly packed between other sheets of paper in completely dark and cold conditions is an ideal way to store it.
Trust general manager Francesca Eathorne says it is a poignant reminder of the legacy the early explorers left behind.

Maths game term 2

WALT:Show our visitors what we do for maths
This experience was so cool because the group I was in was very good at maths.They helped me to learn new skills.In my group there was Tevita,Lj,Vuni and me.This was a good session to show parents what we are good at.
The challenge for me today was trying to understand the game my friend came up with.Then I kept saying "HUH" and he was trying to be specific as he can but it didn't work so we just played another game called heads up.This game is like when 2 people get a card but they are not allowed look at is then the 3rd person looks at the 2 cards and tell them what it equals but he cant say there card and then the 2 people look at each others cards and then they have to guess there own.
The part I liked the most is when we got off track and we started doing magic tricks.I only liked this part cause I knew what my friends talent is and It was my first time seeing him do something that will blow our mind.His magic trick inspired me to do magic but I knew it was gonna take for ages to learn the one he did so ill just stick to rugby.
