Career Subjects

On the 29th of August 2018, Tamaki college had and Career Subject thing. I didn't know what to call it but it had different options and different displays for the year 10's to choose for when they enter year 11 the following year. At first, I wanted to choose Health and P.E but I changed my idea on health to Automotive. I changed my mind because I think that P.E is a little bit related to P.E. I picked P.E because it'll help me when I go into SAS. I thought of automotive because I think it'll be related to guns and it might help me if anything goes wrong with heavy army equipment. At first, I wanted to be a rugby player but realized that you'll need a lot of skills and training to compete with other skilled players in New Zealand or the world. I then thought of being an Electrical Engineer but it's related to maths and it's one of the subjects that I'm not good at. Then I chose the Army or Navy. If I couldn't get in the Army or Navy, I thought of being a Firefighter because I want to help people and save people but I'll have to deal with the stress which I am very good at. If I also can't do Firefighting, I'll do normal Engineering like fixing cars and making new things like making a new car.

Food Tech - Making Mini Quiche

Today we made Mini Quiches for Daniel, Justin and myself. I thought we were going to make Normal Burgers but we made quiches instead. First we had to cut the pastry into 9 pieces and make three more with the leftovers. Second we had to dice the the ham and put it back into the bowl so it can be ready when we need it. Then we put the small pastry into the muffin tray and flattened it to the bottom. We then put the diced ham on top of the pastry and then the cheese on top of the ham. We tipped the egg and milk that we whisked before on the cheese and ham equally. this was the result of our cooking below.

Measurement /Learning this Term

We have learnt a lot this term because my class is determined to do better in their exams and in their classes. I learnt that for a triangle you have to times the width by the length and then half it to get your real answer. I also learned about the circumference and pi. When we did our work we got points for doing work and if you did lots of work you could be the person in the class which had the most points. 
We also learnt about King Henry drank hot chocolate milk which stood for K.H.D - M - H.C.M

Bastion Point Inquiry

This term we have learning about War or arguments about the land. The Maori people thought after they signed the Treaty of Waitangi that they would be peaceful with the Brits and they would be one and no more musket wars. Hone Heke who singed the Treaty as well was angry that the flag at Kororareka  was only a British flag and not two flags (British and Maori). Hone Heke cut down the flag 3 times and was about to cut down a fourth time.

Our Inquiry has been about Bastion Point. The British people burnt down the houses and Joanne Hawke passed away in the fire. When the British people went to take the land at Bastion Point, no one did anything but sang prayers. We made a Document and Presentation about Bastion Point.

Day 5 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2): Ve Day, Making a Fashion Statement

Of course I would invite my friends to party. I'll play games, play rugby, soccer and other sports. I would also invite all my family and party all the way to the next day, or even week, or year just kidding. We would have lots and lots of fun.

These are present people:

I would prefer present day kinda clothing because its more comfy and you don't need to put on a lot of stuff or clothes to make you look really "fancy". If I wore olden day clothes, I would've gotten a sore arm or something would've been sore right, wearing all those clothes. I think 65 years from now, people would've changed styles but they will have similar styles and cosiness. I also think future clothes will go back to being really fancy.

2. Italy Invades Greece:
On the 28th of October, 1940, Italy Invades Greece. It lasted for 1 year 1940 - 23rd of April 1941. I couldn't find if they conquered Greece but I think they failed to conquer Greece.

I chose Second Lieutenant Moana-nui-a-Kiwa Ngarimu, 28th (Maori) Battalion, 2 NZEF. Moana-nui-a-Kiwa Ngarimu is the first Maori to get an VC. He took part in the assault at Tebaga Gap, Tunisia, in March 1943. The battalion’s objective was a strategically important hill known as Point 209. The first task was to take high ground below the summit. Ngārimu led his platoon up one of these lower hills on 26 March, personally knocking out several machine-gun posts.

Day 3 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2): Dealing with Stress, Offering a Helping Hand

For me It's easy for me to deal with stress. I just basically sleep and forget about the next day or forget about it the next time I wake up. Sometimes I eat just to fill your stomach and make you feel better and make you think about other things and think positively.

It must've been hard for people to feed their families if their crops were getting damaged. Here are somethings I would've done to help provide my family with food and warmth. I would've sold the bits of area that the crops didn't grow in and use some money to buy seeds to make food and and use the other money to buy food for now.

Day 2 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2): Popular Culture - The Silent Movie, Art Deco

If I was born in the 1900's I would like to watch it because it looks cool and funny. I would like to watch it now because I would get entertained by watching a funny, cool black and white, silent movie. I would watch this with my family because It would be more fun to talk about what happened. Image result for the gold rush
 I think the painting is 4 star, It's a good painting and it's not bad either. I think that kind of painting is not the kind of painting I would like because its not exciting and funny, It looks kinda boring. I think the painting is good but I don't like paintings like those.

Day 1 - Week 2 (Activity 1 + Activity 2) :St Joseph's Cathedral, Right to Vote

Image result for st patrick cathedral new zealand
I chose the St Patrick's Cathedral which is the oldest Cathedral built in New Zealand, 1841. St Patrick Cathedral is located in Auckland, 43 Wyndham street, 1010. I could not find how long it took to build this Cathedral but I think it took very long.
It is fair to let women vote because I don't see why men should be standing on top. Everyone is equal. Women should've been allowed to vote ages ago. New Zealand being the first country to let women vote is pretty amazing to see women stand up for themselves and make what is wrong, right.Image result for when did new zealand let women vote
