Duffy Assembly.

Duffy Assembly.

Today what I learnt from Niva Retimanu our assembly visitor is how to read books. She told us that it’s good to read and good to achieve. At our assembly today Niva read us a book. called (Kiss kiss) (Yuck Yuck) and that book was really interesting and it is great to read everyday.

Niva Retimanu works at the radio industry. She is a Samoan journalist and newsreader and she loves reading  books and playing sports. Niva Retimanu is also a marathon runner. She ran six marathons including the New York and Queens town marathon. She also ran the marathons in Paris and Beirut.

How to make Maori Bread

How to make Maori Bread

5 cup of flour
5 teaspoon of baking powder
600ml of milk


First, you add 5 cups of flour into a large bowl.

Next, you add  5 teaspoon of baking powder into the bowl with the flour.

Afterwards, pour in 600ml of milk into the bowl

Mix all the ingredients together until it turns into dough.

As soon as the dough has formed, put flour onto the bench so that the dough doesn't become sticky. Knead the dough until it is not sticky.

After you knead the dough, place the dough into a sprayed tray and start flattening the dough into a round shape until it’s 1 centimetre thick.

Last but not least, place the tray into the oven and wait 25 minutes until the bread is cooked.

After you take the bread out, cut the bread into numerous pieces, depending on the amount you’re serving for. Spread butter or any type of jam to garnish the bread and to add more flavour.

This is the same as the maori bread that we made with Mrs Atuahiva.

Grease production at Aggs?

On Tuesday  room 7 and room 8 went to Auckland Aggs college to watch their production.
While I was watching their production I saw lots of people helping each other and I also saw people dancing and sing.

I enjoyed watching their production  because it was like another version of Grease, but 2017. We have been enjoying it a lot. We saw some characters that were like from the Grease and that each scene were like from the real Grease.

Science Intensive.

For science intensive we went to class by class so we can see what that class was learning about. The first class that we went to see was room 8 and what we learned from there class was liquid, solid and gas, the three states of matter. After learning about the three states of matter and learning about how it works, we got to do an experiment I enjoyed, turning melted chocolate into solid, we even got to eat it once it was set into a solid. 

I learnt so much from this class about the three states of matter. 

The next day we went to Miss Sigamoney's class where she was teaching us about Earthquakes. I learnt how earthquakes are formed, we even got a challenge. We had to create a two story building using straws, pins, strings, paper clibs and a cardboard base. We had to make our structure strong enough to hold 250 grams of sand and the vibration of the shaking table a bit.

It was fun. 

But on the very first day of Science Intensive we had to stay in our own classes and learn about our own topic which was Insulation. We had learnt about the different types of insulation and for our project we had to make a house showing where the Insulation goes and the names of different types of Insulation.  

Me and Linda had almost finished ours which was good. 

I learnt so much from these topics, I feel like I'm ready to take on a quiz.
