Technic- Craft

Last week on Wednesday  Rm 11 and 12 had to combine classes while half of room 11 and room 12 went to softball trials with Mr Reid. While they were gone we did some work on narratives. After working on narratives we got ready to go Technic-craft.
 When we arrived to Tamaki College I had to lead the year 7's to Mr Grundy's workshop. When we arrived to his work shop we started on our workbook,  after completing our work book we started on our mold.

 We had to sketch our picture we wanted on the mold then had to use this wood cutter machine to cut of round our sketching. After cutting we had a look at some pendants some other students made. 

When it was 1:00 Mr Grundy shouted times up so I led the year 7's to the bus. It was so cool seeing the year 8's cooking. I'm looking forward to next week because we are starting filling our mold with melted pewter.

This is the pendant I will be making

Sunday Shopping

On Sunday we are going shopping for black and white dresses because on Sunday we have a broadcast to watch a choir. I predict that I am going to see a lot of my family at the broadcast to watch me sing. 

The reason why we are going is because i'm in the singing choir.

Metal craft Workshop

Image result for pewter block
We finally got to go to tech. The project us year 7's were going to start was  metal craft with Mr Grundy in his workshop. I had so much fun with him and we all learned things about pewter and metal. What he did with the pewter was melt it into an electric stove. We also learned about safety tips. 

What did I learn?
What I learned was when a person is melting pewter you have to be at least a meter back. When melting pewter, pewter can be twice as hot as boiling water. I also learnt new words like silhouette and recipient.

Waitangi Day

On Waitangi Day we went for a drive at 2:00pm, while we were driving we saw some Marae's full of people performing, we also saw mountains full of different kites. I went with my grandma, sister, cousins and aunts. Later on we stopped by burgerfuel and bought ourselves some burgers to munch on, after eating we headed back home to make some coconut bread. I enjoyed Waitangi Day and the coconut bread.
