Finishing Part

Then you take it out. Now this is the tricky part. Place a large plate on top of the pan. Then carefully flip the pan fast. Get it over and done with. Then cut it up and pour the left over juice on top of your Tarte Tartin. Then serve it with some ice cream and some pomegranate to make it look beautiful. There is you apple Tarte tartin.

After cutting your pastry in a circle you have to place it on top of the pan very carefully. Then get a fork and use the bottom to poke it under the apples. Once you have finished, you put it in the oven for a few minutes on 200 degrees.

Cooling and Pastry

Then we cooled the apples and flip the apples on the cured part. Mrs Ramkolowan told us how to do it. It was pretty easy to flip the apples. Once it cooled down Mrs Ramkolowan gave us pastry to cut in a perfect circle. Before cutting your pastry in a circle, you need to get a fork and poke random holes in it. Mary wanted to do that.

Cooking the Apples

Once you have finished your apples. Melt your butter on medium heat. Mrs Ramkolowan told to be very careful. We tried our best and we got through the melting part. My group's butter was first to melt. Then she told us to place the apples into the pan. Very carefully Mary put the apples in. Then after that Mrs Lammas told us to to stir and stir until it started to boil...

Cutting Apples

Today Room 11 made a apple Tarte Tartin. Mrs Ramkolowan showed us the process of making the tarte tartin. Mrs Ramkolowan told us to get 4 apples that were cut into halves. Then she told us to peel the skin off and then to cut it into halves again. While we were peeling cutting the apples, Mrs Ramkolowan prepared 50 grams of butter. After doing all of that, Mrs Ramkolowan gave us some soft brown sugar. We sprinkled the brown sugar on the apples and then sprinkled some lemon juice. After that we.....

Weighing it Up

Walt: solve problems in measurements

In this game, I was learning units of mass. I tried to play this game earlier in the week, but I didn’t get it. I tried it again later on, in the week and I found  it easier. Here I am learning what the correct two units. For this one it is grams and kilogram. I hope Mrs Ramkolowan can tell more about this.

Walt: 1. write a narrative.
        2. use words to paint a picture.
        3. use your senses.

Deciding what kind of fireworks we should buy. Looking at the prices and logos. Picking very carefully. My mum didn’t know which ones to choose.
“I don’t know which ones I should get!” she screamed. She stood there looking at them. So out of nowhere she snatched randomly. We went to the counter and brought the fireworks. Mum and I went to the car and drove home.

We arrived home and my sister recognised, the sound of the car door slam. We hopped out of the car and we saw Autymn, standing there staring at my mum’s bag.
“Can I look at the fireworks mum?” cried Autymn.
“Just wait, you can look at them once we go instead. So Autymn rushed inside and took mum’s bag with her. Out of nowhere the whole family came into the lounge to see them as well. Woow went on and on for a long time. It mostly came from Autymn.

I started to get annoyed and marched off to my room. I closed my door and turned the television on. I watched it for a long time. It started to get boring and boring. I didn’t know what to do, so I decided to go into the lounge. I turned the television off and went into the lounge. Suddenly, I saw the fireworks in a pile lying on the floor. The colours looked amazing when I looked at it for a while.
“Only 24 hours to go until we light the fireworks, mum” I replied.
“I know” she said back.

It was night time and it was time for the family to rest for another day.
“I can’t wait until tomorrow” I thought to myself as I jumped into my bed. The next morning came and it was pitch black. Water dripping on the window. The room was cold. Suddenly I saw rain pouring.
“That means, no fireworks, tonight.” Autymn cried in a low voice. I didn’t know what she said so I told her to turn the television on. I hopped out of my bed and went outside. There were black clouds, heavy rain turning into hail stones.

“That’s impossible” I told my mum. There was no response. Until 3 seconds later,
“we have to wait until tomorrow” she replied. Hours went past and it was 6.45pm and the rain started to fade away. My mum got all the fireworks ready. She laid in a row. Then it was 7.15 pm and the rain had vanished. My mum called the family outside to see the amazing colours. They all rushed outside. She lite the first one. Colours went everywhere.

We couldn’t believe it. It glowed in the sky. Many colours were exploding as well. Our eyes grew bigger and bigger at the minute. My brothers and sisters couldn't believe it. Even my cat came to check the fireworks. Then more and more blew in the sky. It was the most colourful night I had ever seen. Only 9 more to go until the show was over.

Theme: Always watch the weather when something important to you is about to happen.

Letter to Genesis

Dear Genesis

Thank you for coming to our school and telling us about the choices we should make. We appreciate all the fun things that you guys have done. The part I really enjoyed was when you handed out the lollies to some children. Your guys act has really inspired my friends and I. It looked like the children enjoyed you. At first I thought that the music was really loud, but I started to get use to it. To me it was really weird when I came in. Then I thought you were amazing. The other thing I really enjoyed were the cheese balls. The message that I had received from you was to make the right decisions in life. I will try harder to not bully my twin sister Autymn.

Yours sincerely

Music - Narrative

Walt: 1. write a narrative
        2. write in paragraphs.

Some children from room 11 were practising an item for the next assembly. Tainah, Clearissa, Alisi, Claudia, Crystal and I were the ones that had been chosen. We practised in the music room all week for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Friday came and we were all ready. During morning tea and lunch we all practised to see if we were alright. So we went into the music room and practised. Lunch passed. Claudia and Crystal were the singers. Tainah played the guitar, Clearissa played the violin and I played the piano with the help of Alisi. Claudia and Crystal were preparing their voices while Tainah was tuning out the guitar. Alisi and I practised our notes on the piano.

“Only 15 minutes to go” Mrs Ramkolowan shouted.
“Are you guys shy” asked Claudia, with a low tone.
“Theres no reason to be shy” replied Crystal. So Claudia carried on doing her own thing while the girls cleaned up themselves. 3 minutes left on the clock. I had never felt so alive. Everyone but Claudia had the guts to go up on stage and to perform in front of everyone. Finally we were called up to perform.

We all went up on the stage as group. We went into our positions and got ourselves ready. Tainah began to play the guitar. Then Alisi and I followed in with the piano. Then Clear started to play the violin. 4 seconds later Crystal and Claudia began to sing. No one could here Claudia sing. Crystal couldn't hear Claudia as well.
“I’m too shy” whispered Claudia, in Crystal’s ear.
“I don’t know what to do” Claudia replied in a sad voice.

People were staring at Claudia. They were talking about her and also laughing at her. So she started to get upset. Tainah went over to her and encouraged her to sing. So Tainah hugged Claudia. She started to sing. Then everyone, including the teachers cheered for her. We all carried on playing the instruments. Our item had finished moments later and the singers bowed to their feet. Everyone bounced with excitement. Claudia was brave and happy.

After assembly we all gathered as a group. Mrs Ramkolowan was proud of us, but she was mostly proud of Claudia. All of us hugged and laughed.
“This is the coolest afternoon ever” jumped Claudia.

Theme: Not to be shy.

Poem - Badminton

Walt: write a poem with rhyme.


Looking at my opponent's, on the other side
We try to win all of their pride
My partner serves to the other team
While the audience eat their ice cream.

Trying to play like a team
Out of nowhere they start to scream
We try our best to win our game
They are falling in a lot of shame

Hitting the shuttle, were getting the flow
Only a few more points to go
Now it’s my partners turn to hit
Now it’s time for them to quit

She wack’s the shuttle in their face
Now there praying for eternity grace
We now receive a massive applause
It must of been a gift from Santa Claus

Reflection, Rotation and Translation

In this game is was really challenging at first. I didn’t get what translated means. So I played it a couple of times and got the hang of it. I tried really hard figuring out what one to choose when four shapes came up. I will be sure to get it right the next time.
