Matariki Celebration T2 2022

Last week Wednesday our school held a Matariki celebration day. We usually do this every year. Fallen, Chevelle, and I filmed and edited this movie. We filmed Team 3’s Matariki Celebration. They did cooking, art, and ki o rahi. I had fun filming and seeing what Team 3 got up to. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Tech@Tamaki/Cooking – Minced with Rice and Veggies

Last week at food tech we made minced with rice and veggies.

We sliced and diced our veggies (onions, carrots, and cellary). We put our minced in the pan and cooked it. After some time we added our chopped veggies to the pan. We also boiled some rice and drained the water out (before that we made sure the rice was soft). We washed dishes and cleaned our kitchen. Finally we dished our plates. And ate our Minced with Rice and Veggies. I worked with Aye, again.

Year 8 Leadership Camp – Highlights

During week 3 the year eights had their leadership camp. This camp was supposed to be fun and help us with our leadership skills, it really was. Our camp was at Carey Park Camp and I was in Waitakere. I have many highlights and things I wanna share but I will share just a few. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog. (There were certain activities that we couldn’t do because of the rain but we still had a blast).

Highlight 1/Activities – There were so many activities that would put me out of my comfort zone or they would’ve been so fun! Two of my favourite activities were flying fox, crate stacking, (much more but those two). I screamed so loud when I went on the flying fox because it was so high and it was insanely fun. The crate stacking kind of put me out of my comfort zone because I stood on unsteady crates but it was still super duper fun.

Highlight 2/Area – The area was amazing and beautiful! There would be signs like a green sign, yellow sign, and red sign (you probably get what that means).  There was a park, trampolines, fun play areas, a lake/river, etc. The cabins were also cool. As well as our meeting area, the dining hall and the court.

Highlight 3/ Food – We loved the food! I promise you that we were well fed and the food was delicious. I loved dessert and lunch. Thank you to the chefs and teachers for helping out with serving our food.

A HUGE THANK YOU to our helpers, parents, teacher, chefs and host/people at the camp for this amazing camp we had. It was super fun and I did not regret not going because I had a blast. I had a great time with my friends, watching others step up and lead, and the awesome activities. Thank you!

Information Report – Hippopotamus

This is FIOP. Our writing task is another information report which is based on Hippos. I wrote about their habitat/diet, family/life, and conservation. I read a few articles about this and found some cool and interesting facts. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

The third largest land animal on earth and native to Africa, the Hippopotamus. This mammal lives on water and land, they live in the South Sarahan, Africa. They can stay underwater for five minutes. Hippos are mostly herbivorous and eat grass (about 35 kilograms) and fruits. Hippos have a large body, short legs, short tali, and a huge head. Hippos weight 1,400kg – 4,500kg and their height is 10.8 and 16.5 feet.

Hippos are in groups with 10 – 30 individuals in it. It is called a herd or bloat. The leader of the herd is a dominant male leader. The rest are females with their younger hippos. Females hippos (who are called called cows) give birth to baby hippos and gather up with other cows to protect their babies. They protect their babies and fight off the predators by splashing water and using their massive size as their advantage.

These hippos are not endangered yet but exposed to extinction. 115,000 – 130,000 hippos are still living in the wild. Due to their habitat loss and hunting, their population went down. Luckily the laws have been restricted and this helped the hippopotamuses population. They also live in protected areas in East African countries.

In conclusion, Hippopotamuses are mammals, water and land animals. They have a herbivorous diet. They stay in herds and have one male leader. East African countries have some protected areas for hippos.

HW WK6 – Digital Technologies

This is one of our homework tasks for this week. We had to choose one piece of technology and see how it has changed over time or looked like before. I chose phones. (1st phone) Motorola Dynatac 8000x, (2nd phone) Siemens S10, (3rd phone) Nokia unveil the 7110, (4th phone) and Apple iphone 13 pro. This was intresting to do because I saw the change and difference between phones now and then. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.
