Roman Technology

We recently tok a trip to The Museum in Nelson and saw a lot of interesting machines and weapons that the Romans used.
We used the 'ShowMe' app on the iPads to share what we learnt about some of these machines.

My Famous Dreamer


My Famous Dreamer
My famous person is Lionel Messi. He plays for FC Barcelona and Argentina. His dream was to become a famous soccer player and he achieved it. He was born on the 25th of June 1927. He now is 26 years old, he kicks with his left foot and when he was 21 he got the Fifa world player of the year. I think that Lionel Messi is the best player in the world and that he keeps playing soccer until he is 30 or 35.

  Osama Bin Mohammed Bin Award Bin Laden was born on the 10th of march,1957.
When he was young,he went to Al-thager model school and then went to king Abdul Aziz University. Osama's first job was a civil and normal engineer.
Osama then had 6 wives and 24 children.
He told his children to move to the west and that's when he made the terrorist group called Al-Qaeda.
A couple of months later on 9/11 was when he attancked the twin towers.
That's when Seal group six decided to hunt him down. The mission was called operation 
"Neptune spear". Seal group six did kill bin laden.
The person who shot Osama is referd to "The Shooter" and he's the one who killed bin laden.
He shot him above the left eye and through the chest.
His resting place is the Arabian Sea.
Osama's dream was to take over America.



Year 7 at Food Technology

Every Tuesday we go to Technology at Garin Collage and 4 people in Kea class go to Food Tech. We first started on the last week of term 1 and made Kiwifruit Muffins. There are 6 kitchens at food tech so                                                                     we are in groups of 3 to 5, the muffins were really yummy. This week our normal food tech teacher was away so we had another substitute teacher. We made 2 things that Tuesday, Pumpkin Soup and Cheese and Bacon Scones. They were also delicious. By Laura.
