Colour Changing

How do colours change?

Colours change by combining to different colours together by using a spinning technique.

When blue and red are spun together on a spinning wheel they produces the colour purple.

When the colours green and blue are spun together they produces the colour turquoise.

These colours are produced depending on the speed of the spinning wheel. If the wheel goes slow you will not be able to see the colours change but if the goes fast you will be able to see the changing colours.

The Cultural Event 🌴🏝

Today at approximately 11:30 there was a very special assembly where every class did a performance about Tonga and Samoa. Each class performed different things in front of the whole school. The one I mostly enjoyed was Room 10's performance because they were singing with enthusiasm. 

Great job to all classes, you did a really wonderful job.

✏Graphics ✏

Today at Technicraft the year 7/8s were arranged into different classes. Year 7s went to Mr Penida who does Graphics but sadly Mr Penida wasn't there. We had a different teacher instead who's name was Mr Stagg and he taught us year 7s how to write and draw our names in different shapes and types.

Technicraft was exciting but complicated at the same time because I didn't really know what to do during Graphics but then everyone helped me do what I was supposed to do.

Today at approximately 11:50 am room 12 did an orienteering. When we first started orienteering we were all given different maps with different courses on them.

When I started I was confused because at first I didn't know how to read the map but later through the quest the map was actually getting easier to read. While trying to find the letters on the map it was tiring and exhausting at the same time.

The weather was really cold and windy at first but after running around it started getting warm.

At the end of the session it was still a bit chilly but at the same time it was exhausting.

Chicken Curry On Rice

On Wednesday at tech we made chicken curry on rice.

First we had to get all of our ingredients ready.

The ingredients were tomato paste, black pepper, brown sugar, herbs and spices. After we had all of our ingredients we had to put it into a frying pan and stir it around. Before we did that we had to put the chicken in the pot with water inside then when it was cooked we had to put the chicken into the pan. While the chicken was in the pan we had to put it onto the stove and stir it well. When it was finished we had to dish it on the plate nicely and carefully. After that we got to eat it but I saved mine for when I got to school.

★ Learning About Matariki ★

On the 13th of June every Maori in the senior block went to Te Oro to learn lots of things about Matariki. We all learnt how to find Matariki in the sky and we also learnt that the Southern Cross never rises and it never sets.

People think of the group of stars as a mother and her daughters. The mothers' name is Matariki
 and the daughters' names are Tupu-a-nuku, 

Tupu-a-rangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipungarangi and Ururangi. 

 Instructions on how to find Matariki for yourself. 

All you need to do is firstly wake up before 6 o'clock and then at 6 o'clock go outside and look for the Southern Cross and if you've find it try and find Matariki but remember to use the Southern Cross to help.

Maybe you can try and see the star cluster in the sky you.
