Learn 3D Shapes

Today at Technicraft I attended graphics and 3 dimensional shapes. Mr Pineda our instructor how reviewed us how to cut 3 dimensional shapes. Afterwards my first 3 dimensional shape I had to design. Once you completed a 3 dimensional shape you will gain points for yourself. The harder the cutting, folding, and gluing the pieces together, the more points you will receive.

Graphics With Nobel Pineda

Yesterday at Technicraft we were with Nobel Pineda our teacher. He informed us how to draw and sketch our names for art. Afterwards when most year 7's were done, they had to move onto the next task. Naming a restaurant, names for your products and ingredients.

All I was focusing on was points. When you achieve something Mr Pineda will add up your points on a score board. The most points will win a prize or just nothing, it depends. Furthermore drawing was enjoyable but studying on chrome was more effective!

I Hate Cross Country!

Today I attended cross country, the seniors and few juniors had to sprint or jog around the streets. We had to manage for 2 to 4 laps around our school. Cross country is really difficult and exhausting but the year 7's and 8's have to bolt for 4 laps. Noticing the year 5's and 6's only have to do 2 to 3 rounds.

Practicing for weeks is tough but you will gain more stamina, everyday. I  walked half way but dashed through the whole way around.

No More Cooking.🙁

Today the Year 7's change around. We do not go cooking anyone, we do now do graphics. As we entered the graphics room, our first project was to draw our name. Not any standard name, it had to be creative and stunning! Making patterns or design for your name. It can also be bold and block writing. Sketching or high lighting is a good way to make your model more satisfying. Afterwards our drawing was completed, I showed it to our instructor to see if he will like it or not. I was so thrilled into what I created, it looked like a masterpiece to me. I didn't get enough time to color it in because we had to go.

Chicken Curry At Tech!

Every Wednesday we go to Tech to cook delicious food. The year sevens went to Mrs Tuipolotu's classroom to cook Chicken Curry! After she  showed us the ingredients, she told us to grab items from the cupboard. Chicken, Curry powder, black pepper, tomato paste, Indian tomato sauce, herbs spices,and brown sugar to make not so sour.

Afterwards we needed to grab our equipment: tongs, frying pan, a pot and a wooden spoon. First step was filling the pot with water and putting the chicken inside. Next,  we put the pot on the top of the stove to heat up. When the chicken was soft and cooked we put it in a frying pan, with the rest of the ingredients except brown sugar. Then we mixed all the ingredients together to make one big pile of tomato paste. We also put in brown sugar to not make it so sour and added the chicken to our tomato paste. Later we mixed it together and we're done. 

Our Chicken Curry was made!

2.New Zealand is a small country, but same size to Great Britain or Japan.

3. Over three-quarters of the population in New Zealand live on the north side of the island, only one-third with the rest of the population live in Auckland.

Daily Hard Fitness

Working hard at fitness is really tough, but it is really good exercise when you wake up in the morning and come to school.

Everyday we get into class lines waiting for our teacher Mr Reid to let Room 9 go first. After Room 9 goes Room 10 follows by Rooms 11 and 12. We all run up the hill, then towards the staff room,  turn right ninety degrees to a lower pathway. Then, down a small bluff, turn clock wise and run down pass the toilets. Afterwards we pass the building and back on the concrete outside the classrooms. We carry that on until ten minutes further.
