Making Crepes

Crepes, what are crepes Mr. Barks? Well you’ll just have to wait until it’s your turn to come and try one. You would normally have creps for breakfast they are just like pan cakes but crepes tend to be thinner. I was told that you can sit outside the Eiffel Tower in France and if you want you could ask for some crepes. I would like to try one from there because it might taste different from the ones that I cooked with my teacher Mr. Barks.
  • The equipment and ingredients that you need to make crepes are. . . I will start off by telling you the ingredients so you will need Ingredients:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • nutella (if you want to use it)
  • Bananas (if you want to use it)
Now all you need to do is grab a frying pan and cook to your perfection. They taste really great while you eat them, especially when you put a bit of nutella and some bananas in the crepes and eat. It tastes reh bee- ehn, treh bee- ehn means very good.
The way that we cooked the crepes was with something like a pan but just a bit similar to a frying pan. Before play time my teacher Mr. Barks made some for the kids who wanted to have them, but if you didn’t finished your work then you didn’t get to have a crepe. When I had my crepe I put nutella and some chopped bananas in with my crepe. It tasted really delicious especially the nutella.
I wish we could cook crepes with Mr. Barks every week. Making Canadian food with my teacher is my favourite part of this term. I think crepes would be awesome for breakfast or for desert after dinner. If I ever have crepes for breakfast I would put some bananas and strawberries with nutella, that sound beautiful!


Do you know what the story behind the Argentina flag is? I do.
The Argentine flag was designed by General Manuel Belgrano in 1812. Manuel Belgrano was an Argentinean politician, lawyer and military leader. According to the tradition of Argentina he got the idea and colours for the flag whilst gazing at the sky, prior to the Battle of ParanĂ¡. Some believed that Belgrano created the Sun of May on this day but some people believe that the origin of the Sun of May is related to Inca mythology. Argentineans celebrate Argentine Flag Day on the anniversary of General Manuel Belgrano’s death on the 20th June.

Typing Tutor Certificates

These certificates are to prove that I am able complete ten certificates on freetypinggame.net/. My typing Skills are getting better because I work on https://www.freetypinggame.net/. Mr. Barks my teacher at school, in term 1 he told us to look up Freetypinggame.net. When we looked it up we saw that there are a three different subjects to choose from, lessons,games and tests, it starts off with the basics and gets harder every time. We all clicked the lesson button and we choose the first lesson F&J and off we went.
I do really well with typing tutor and it teaches me a lot when I start to type. Sometimes I get tempted to cheat but I don’t and keep going. I’ve done ten certificates and it’s hard to get shift keys, getting my tenth made me proud because I thought I wouldn’t make it. Now that I’ve got my first ten I’m to aim to get another ten but change the time limit to twenty words per minute. Doing this makes me wont to complete ten every day, that would be awesome.
Typing tutor gets harder and harder every time I do it. It gets so hard I have to do it like four times in a row because I haven’t done fifteen or twenty words per minute. I can just pass some of the twenty words per minute and while doing them I want to look down at the time but if I do then I’ll stop and I might fail. I think typing tutor will get very hard and I might not be able to complete it, but if I keep my mind to it I reckon I will succeed.
When I keep my mind to completing typing tutor certificates I will improve my typing and hopefully get all of the certificates. During typing tutor lessons I get confused on where the keys are and sometimes push the wrong key. You should try it and see how well you do, and you would be amazed after a while just like I am. When I grow up I hope to be an excellent typist.

My first time in Australia

Have you seen so many trees in just a small area in your life? I have, it looks really weird . When I saw the view from in the plane about to land in Australia, I saw a beautiful country. I couldn't believe my eyes, it’s so different then New Zealand, like; when we were travelling to the place I was staying we drove though this big tunnel and it was long.
The first thing that we did the next day was go to walk around the city. When we were walking I was going to go and touch it from behind but suddenly Ra! I got a fright. We walked around the river and saw freaky things along with the walk. My grand father took a photo of me while we were walking. The photo was with this Man Who to me looked like a bat costume, He Had long fingers and put one hand one the top of my head and the other at the bottom of my head. It was weired to me but also fun.
Waking up to the sound of laughter... My grand parents and there friends were laughing at something I did’t understand but the laughed really loud. Aaaaa “I'm so tired” do you know what the time is, I asked Joshua. What are we doing today I asked my Grand ma. We are going to the market. Do I have to go with you? You can stay home today if you want to.Yes I will stay home with Josh today. Josh what are we going to do today... “Do you want to go to Dandenong it’s the big mall around here. Yes it sounds like awesome fun. Who are we going with? My mum is going to take us, he told me. I asked if his sister was going to come? He said “defiantly. If you’re wondering who his mum and sister are the The sisters name is Daniel and her mums name I’m not sure of but she’s my auntie. The first thing that we did in The shopping mall we went to Rebel sport and looked at there stuff that they had on sale. They had a mini basketball hoop that came with a ball for $20’s, along side you could pick your favourite team of the stock that they had and buy it. “Where are we going next”, I ask Josh. Any where you want to. No where to go that I know of. He said come with me and I will show you around the store Mya.
As we were looking in the store Mya we couldn't find his mum so we went looking … later on we that very same day in the mall we found them down stairs and his sister was trying to find us too. Lucky we found them other wise we might of had to walk home.
I felt sad that I had to leave and come back to New Zealand but I had a lot of fun while I was in Australia. That was a grate experience for me travelling to Australia and doing some awesome things. My time in Australia I will never forget.

Never Been To Australia

I’ve never been to Australia. Never! On Friday the 12th of August, I will be leaving for this never before seen (by me) destination. How exciting!
What I’m looking forward to you may be asking, well... I’m looking forward to seeing all the exciting things to see. Because as I said before I’ve never been to Australia. I’ve heard that Australia has got lots of different things compared to New Zealand. The Things I want to see are things like the Eureka sky tower or just some thing really cool, going into the Eureka sky tower would be even better. I’m also looking forward to meeting Australian people and learning the different things in there country.
While in Melbourne I'll be staying with friends of my grand parents. I hope that I get to see some of the famous Melbourne Storm player, because if I’m not cheering for the Warriors I’m going for the Melbourne Storms. I’m also looking forward to going into the city and looking at there stores and what they have on sale. Eureka Tower sounds pretty awesome. It sounds like the Sky Tower in Auckland New Zealand.
I think that this trip will be one of the ones I will never forget. I’ll be anxious and excited before I even step foot the plane. Melbourne sounds interesting so I’ll have more
information for you later on. Stay tuned for more. Thanks for reading..

Tournament Day

Going to a tournament is quite tough because your teaches have to make sure you’re ready for the day. At my school we are humble winners at every sport we play. Have you ever played at a league tournament before? I went to one last term on the 5 July 2011. Also we played five different schools at the tournament. The schools that we versed were the schools from around the tamaki area. The names of the schools are Tamaki Primary,Baily Road,Stanhope, Sylvia Park and G.I Primary School. You may or may not know but my school is called point England School. The first team that we played against was Sylvia Park then G.I Primary next Baily Road after Stanhope and Tamaki Primary. “Five games! far that’s heaps”. Do you think I scored any tries? Famous,favourite,fun,field... My favourite part of the day was when I scored two tries. The purpose for scoring my first try was because Crusader passed the ball to James but James didn’t catch the ball and I caught it and ran to score the try. Reason number two is... Darius offloaded the ball to me and I got a run a way try. I like to score tries for some strange reason. Another favourite part of the day was that we won the shield back. When the man told us who first he said “and in first place Point England school” I shouted YEAH! Even though we won the shield back it was quite close for some of our matches. Working as a team is one of the keys to winning, we worked as a team to win like a team. I think we did extremely well at the league tournament. Even though the shield is ours you never know what will happen. I felt tired and exhausted after a long day. That was the first time I had ever played rugby league for the school and in my life, so I think I did well myself. My legs were so sore I could barley move, I’ve never felt that sore in my life. Rugby league is awesome!

Thursday, August 4, 2011

Here I am at the start of a new term. My goals for the term are to listen and to be focused on every thing I do, especially on my writing. This term is going to be different from the other two terms because I have changed my attitude towards learning. I’m trying to stay on task and KEEP MY EYE ON THE BALL. Term 3 what is there to look forward to? Mmmm. Ah! I know I’m looking forward to the trip. usually we have trips to some place. My teacher told my class that my school might be organizing some Ruby World Cup tickets for kids who want to go, But he also said that you won’t get picked if you haven’t been good in class and “KEEPING YOUR EYE ON THE BALL”. Hearing about the Rugby World Cup tickets made me determend to try my best in every thing I do. Rugby World Cup is going to be exciting for me because My teacher Mr. Barks is Canadian and New Zealand is competing against Canada on there final game in there pool. I think that this term is going to go better then last term because we know what to do and as I said before there might be some Rugby World Cup tickets for kids from my school. Working hard? Do you wok hard? I know I certainly do but it’s quite hard sometimes. If you put your mind to it and focus on it you will succeed.
