Well we have been back now for a little over one term. Lots of new changes and exciting new developments.
I will get back to keeping updates current on this site and hope you will all enjoy following along.
Since I cant get a couple of extra hours in the day I think Ill have to just redo my timetable!
We are already into week 4 of term 3 wow! Shayne, Montana and I participated in the Mara KAi Masterchef competition recently at Te Poho O Rawiri Marae in Gisboren. What a great day! We came away with best aprons, best music and best drink! Woo hoo and we learnt a lot too!
Our mara kai have been pumping producing alot of great food which we have been able to enjoy! Yum!
Worm farms are also pumping with the worm population pretty much doubling! Wai noke is going well.
Have just loaded Mine craft onto my students iPads...looking forward to seeing how this goes in class. Looking for suitable apps is quite refreshing!
Have been teaching a night class for REAP every Wed night. My class is getting bigger which is great! "Te reo Maori through waiata" is progressing along well!
My inspire class got started with our Tu Ake Te KAraka Mural Project and we are well on our way with Stage 1! YAy! Looking great guys! So proud of you all! Cant wait to finish this and move on to the next shop front! :)
Kia ora te whanau,
We have been busy harvesting and preserving our fruits and vegetables. There are many scientific processes in this work.Here are some big ideas.
The types of changes that materials can undergo are related to their chemical composition. Chemlical reactions occur naturally around us all the time. People have developed technologies that slow down or alter the natural processes of decomposition in food.
We know that preserving alters the properties of food.
