😊Cooking At Technicraft!!!😊

Finally we made it to Tamaki College. As soon as we arrived, our new teacher Mrs Tuipolotu, taught us the basic rules of safe cooking.

First step of keeping safe from cooking is wearing aprons to protect your clothes from stains. If a fire happens we have to yell ''Mrs Tuipolotu fire,!'' and she will grab a fire proof blanket or a fire extinguisher. After we learnt about the safety equipment we had to learn how to organise the cooking equipment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      As soon as the table was clean, the equipment was ready, we looked at Mrs Tuipolotu who told us that we were making milkshakes!                                                                                                                                        
 We grabbed a mixer with a bowl and Mrs Tuipolotu placed three cups of ice-cream in our bowl and we had to mix the ice-cream until it was creamy. As soon as we all had a turn of mixing the ice-cream, we scooped some of the mixture into our cups and waited in a line until we received our chocolate flavoring. Then we had to walk around in circle for the next round of whip cream. Mrs Tuipolotu sprayed some whip cream for about five seconds and then she'd shout, ''Next,!'' After drinking our delicious milkshake we had to clean all our equipment before we could drink more of our milkshake.

This was the first time making milkshakes in my life!

Week 2 Technicraft

We have come back to Tech and I have to work on my project. The first thing I had to do was write some reasons why we are making our project, who is it for, what it is made of.

I made squares on my design to look more realistic. After I had done my patterns Mr Grundy gave me permission to go through the yellow and black line and show me his piercing machines. He gave me a simple small machine  that burns wood. To make it more safe, we had a plug at the end. It has a bent curve and it will burn so hot it can burn wood very easily.

 With the patterns I have made, I had to burn around them to look more like a giraffe. Afterwards it was time to go. I had a really exciting day at Technicraft.
                                                 By the way my project is not completed.
