Experimenting with popcorn



Tuesday 7th June By Britney Filimoehala
On Wednesday we went down to the hall kitchen to make yogurt popcorn. Mrs Slade opened the door and we had all the ingredients that we needed. While we were waiting Mrs Tepania went and got us some word finds to do. Mrs Slade called us one by one to stir the mixture and put in the ingredients. When the yogurt popcorn was ready Moala and I put the yogurt popcorn into cups and handed them out to the kids.When I tasted the yogurt popcorn it had too much maple syrup so Mrs Slade put in some more popcorn and it was delicious.The next day we made chicken stock popcorn.First we popped the popcorn and Mrs Slade pour the popcorn into a bowl and it was popping all over the table. I poured some oil into the popcorn so it would help the chicken stock stick to the popcorn.When it was ready we had a little taste and tasted nice and delicious.

Popcorns

Today we tasted two kinds of popcorn. The first one was Candy Coated popcorn. When I tasted the Candy Coated it was to sweet and sugary. The delicious one that I liked was the banana because I like monkeys and they eat bananas. Next we tasted the Caramel Coated popcorn. When I toke one bite it tasted delicious and it was my favorite. This is the best and I enjoyed it. Thank You Mrs Lorene Slade.

At Albany North shore I heard people crying and screaming and I felt scared. If there was a Tornado at Auckland I will be shocked because it will be my first time.Dear Albany North shore god bless you all and love you and he will help you all to build your centre.

A Rainy Day

When it rains at playtime I felt sad for all the children that can't play outside. They run around and their uniform is wet and cold. Some people want to come into the library but it was closed at playtime. Only the librarian’s are allowed inside. The children have to go to class so the teacher can see that they are safe and warm. At night when it rains I get annoyed because when I watch television I can’t hear it. The rain hitting the roof sounds like popcorn popping. My favourite thing to do on a rainy night is to snuggle back in my warm blanket.

The Earthquake In Christchurch

On Tuesday 22nd February I was watching the news when they said that there had been an Earthquake in Christchurch. It had damaged lots of buildings. There were people running around and crying because their family and friends were trapped in the buildings. It is so sad because some people were killed when the buildings collapsed.


Homes have been destroyed and now people are sleeping in playgrounds, school halls and other public places. Shops have been destroyed too.

I hope that they are safe and that the kids from school are safe too. God bless you Christchurch our love goes out to you.
