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.

Victory At Last ⚽⚽

Yesterday was the soccer interschool competition and it was located at the Point England Reserve. The whole soccer team left at approximately
9:20 am. We went up against a lot of  schools. The first school the year 7/8s played against was Glen Taylor school but I was a afraid because it was the first game for the day. Just after the game ended the year 5/6s had their game against a school named Saint Patricks. Both teams won their first game.

The year 7/8s won all their games but sadly they lost one. The last school we went up against was Stonefields and unfortunately most of their team were injured. Both schools tied so we came equal first. Victory was ours at last.  πŸ…πŸ…
