Technology

Last week on Wednesday the yr 7&8 s had technology at Morewa. The year 7 s did woodwork and the yr 8 s did cooking. In cooking we made lasagne just before we made it we had to fill out a sheet that had our 5 things we needed to make the lasagne like. After we filled out the sheet we started cooking our divine lasagne. We had to pick five vegetables to put in our lasagne but then the teacher picked two for us so we only had to pick three. It took us until lunch eating time to finish it. So at lunch instead of lunch we had lasagne me and Ricardo's lasagne was very tasty. Sadly we had to take some home so it turned out we couldn’t have a great feast with just lasagne. During morning tea and lunch we got to play on Morewa school’s playground which was really fun. After lunch we had to use one word to describe our lasagne the word i used was exquisite. I enjoyed making the delicious lasagne. But  I think we could have added a bit more salt to the mince.

In Te Ngahere we went to technology at Moerewa School. The year 7’s went to woodwork and metalwork while the year 8’s cooked lasagne. We had three tests in woodwork, one about safety, one about how well we listened, and the last one about hand tools. After we finished the tests we got to use the tools and see what we could do with them. The part I enjoyed the most was sawing a piece of wood and making it into a wood hook like maui’s hook with a coping saw which was a hand tool which was small but not small then it had a handle on top of the saw, then on the bottom of the handle there was a saw it kind of looked like a semi circle. I also think I could try using the power tools more like the power drill which had a massive drill on it as it says in the name but you had to have chuck key for the chuck. The chuck was a metal part where you got a key and unlocked it I wasn’t quite sure what unlocking it did.

Technology

In Te Ngahere the year 7&8’s  went to Moerewa School for technology. The year 8’s got to do cooking. We made a lasagne with 5 different types of vegetables, some mince, cheese and other ingredients. First we got into pairs, and chose a table. Then the teacher explained what to do. After that we got to start our cooking lesson. I really liked the final taste of my lasagne. It was yum. My favorite part was when we get to try our lasagne. I hope I can make some  more in the future.

Marshmallow Catapults



In Te Ngahere last week 1  we made marshmallow catapults which I found really fun. We had to make a catapult with skewers, marshmallows,a bit of masking tape and 2 spoons (only for our group). We also had to make sure it shot a marshmallow. At the end when we all finished making the catapult we did a class challenge to see which catapult the furthest. We all had a lot of fun but we could of tested it less so the marshmallows didn't break.

Marshmallow catapult

In Te Ngahere we made Marshmallow catapults. We were put in groups my group was Aj, Ricardo, Taliesha and me. Every group got given limited items; they were 12 skewers, 9 marshmallows, 2 rubber bands, a spoon and unlimited masking tape. The reason we built these was to see who’s catapult fired furthest. The part I enjoyed the most was the competition at the end of the 45 minutes of building the catapult.

Swim safe


In Te Ngahere we had a swim safe lesson with Whaea Tracey but we had to put everything we knew together. The activities were chucking out a rope and we had to make sure they caught it and the person who threw it had to tell them what to do, there was also the huddle and lastly the chain. A lot of us forgot our togs and we had to do the dry safe rope catch and throw. I enjoyed the dry safe rope catch and throw the most.
