Game reflection so far

Have you ever used coding to create your very own game? Well for the past 10 weeks in Extension class Seini and I have been creating a space game. We have had a small struggle with getting the spaceship to shoot but we are getting there. One of our most struggles were communication but it has gotten better every week. Today we completed our game with and extra level and 3 fun facts! Last term we made a different game which was a maze one but this term it’s focused more on space and sharing facts and fun. Our whole focus so far this year has been coding using mostly scratch and a little bit of code combat. Before actually starting our game we found out more information about space right here:

Our knowledge with coding had definitely grown alot so far this year. It took alot of different solutions in our game as we had alot of glitches especially with a bonus level.

Food Tech Week 9:

This week my partner Anahere and I made Pizza Pinwheels.
The ingredients we used were:
Mixed herbs, 1 sheet of puff pastry, salami, bacon, pizza sauce, cheese, red capsicum and warm water.
First dice the bacon, salami and red capsicum. Once finished spread the pizza sauce on pastry leaving one edge for when you roll it. Once you have finished with the sauce add your capsicum, bacon, salami, herbs then finish it off with your cheese. Next roll your'e pastry then add warm water to the edge with no sauce to glue together. lastly you want to cut the roll into about 8 circles and cook in a tray until golden brown.

Food Tech Week 7

Today in Food tech we made mini quiches. I made the pasty and my partner Anahere made the filling.
What you will need for mini quiches:
Measuring cups, Large mixing bowl, sharp knife,chopping boards, wooden spoon, 12 cup muffin tray, cookie cutter. For the pastry I used:
130gms or flour, 25-50gms of butter and Water.
How to make the pastry:
First mix the butter and flour with your hand till they form a crumb-like consistency. Once you think it is right slowly add water little by little until of a doughy texture while continuously mixing. Once you have made your pastry you will need to roll it into a thin sheet then with a cookie cutter cut 12 perfect circles. For the filling: you will need bacon, 1 egg, half a spring onion, cheese and salt and pepper.
chop the bacon and combine bacon with egg in small mixing bowl then dice spring onion and cheese then mix. Once the filling and pastry is made, spray muffin tray with cooking oil and place the pastry circles then add the filling. cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. this is how Anahere and my quiches turned out.

Plays and poetry

Walt: analyse and adapt spoken words with expression and confidence.

In this task we had to analyse texts and their confidence towards speeches, We learnt about how people have different ways of oral speech and how it travels around to others. Some people haven't adapted to saying speeches and sometimes I can be one of those people. Plays and Poetry are our main focus for week 6.

Week 6 Inquiry Project

Our Project is to make bag hooks for classrooms in the school who are in need of them. During our research we have learnt that only team 4 and 5 are the only groups that need bag hooks. In team 5 we have most of the student bags on the ground instead of on the bag hooks that we have in our space, some student say the we need more bag hooks so that the students bags can fit on one side of each bag hooks.

We met with Mrs Tele’a to confirm our project and we also shared with her the materials needed and the quantity needed to make this possible. We talked about how many hooks could fit on one pole and how many rows we wanted. Soon we decided to have eight on each pole for now and we also wanted a lock plan for the lockers as many are locked with lost combinations.
