Cooking Competition - stage 3 - The Dinner Menu

Image
 Things are heating up in the kitchen as our cooks enter into stage 3 with recipes for a dinner. The children have one hour to create their dinner masterpieces. They are judged on taste, presentation, cleanliness of kitchen and then given an overall score. It is a very difficult job for the judges as the cooks have to up their skill and flavour levels for this round. mmmmm, Thai Green curry on display today. It smelt delicious simmering in the kitchen. I think the teachers stole the leftover sauce that accompanied this kitchen sensation. Cheers Team! Congratulations to everyone who has made it this far. Isaiah and Emma - enchiladas - these smelt amazing as they cooked away in the kitchen.

Planting out seedlings with Mel

Mel was in today supporting us further with our nursery learning.  We got to plant out some seedlings and put them in our shade houses for their next stage of growing. It was great getting in and learning while we were supporting the nursery.

Poi with Belinda

Image
 Belinda has been helping us create Poi as part of our Te Reo learning. Today we learnt the song "E were Taku poi". It was hard work learning to use our poi correctly. But hopefully by the time we get to our learning celebration our singing and poi will be ready to share with you :)
