Christmas dish

This easy pavlova recipe takes only 20 minutes to prepare (the rest is baking time). Bake this and you'll be the dessert hero! The many 5 star reviews speak for themselves.

6 egg whites (at room temperature)
2 cups Chelsea Caster Sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp white vinegar
2 tsp cornflour
300 ml cream, whipped
Fruit for decoration
Pre-heat oven to 110ÂșC bake (not fan bake).
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large metal, ceramic or glass bowl (not plastic), beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Continue beating while adding the sugar a quarter of a cup at a time. The mixture should get glossier and thicker with each addition and this should take at least 10 minutes. Beat in the vanilla, vinegar and cornflour. Spoon mixture out prepared tray into a dinner plate sized mound
    Bake for approximately 1 1/2 hours, until dry and crisp and it lifts easily off the baking paper.   Cool on a wire rack. 
    When completely cool, place on a serving plate, swirl the top with the whipped cream and decorate with sliced or chopped fruit of your choice.
    Older eggs work better as the white breaks down easier.
    Wipe the bowl beforehand with lemon juice to remove any greasy residue before beating the egg whites (grease affects the ability for the egg whites to form peaks).
    Caster sugar is needed as the fine crystal size traps and holds air - more air is trapped because there are more crystals.

Shantytown NZ

Last week we went to Shantytown NZ. It was a great place. My class went and we got all dressed up and we look like gold miners. We leaned Law and Oder in the gold fields the last thing we did was do a court case. We we got back to school we design three different court cases.


Every Wednesday we go to the high school and do some subjects that you would learn in year 9 like metal work, wood work, cooking and many more. This term my group is doing 3D printing. Today we had to design houses on a website called my house was amazing.

We are part of an experiment to see how Connected New Zealanders are.
We have to write a letter to a New Zealanders of our choice. Then we have to pass the letter onto a random person with instructions to pass on to some one who might know the person whom the letter is addressed.
I have chosen Richie Mc Caw as my Curious NZer because he was the best all-black ever and had 148 caps. I am going to give it to Maree Harris is and old friend of my teacher and had a tv show called

Small Blacks TV. Small Blacks TV is all about 

A popular mix of rugby stories, tips, interviews, information and comedy hosted by Jason Fa’afoi.  The show celebrates kids’ enjoyment of our national sport using All Blacks and Super Rugby players as Inspiration and she knows Richie Mc Caw.

Boat challenge results

I am very proud of our boat it came second by one point.
The score was(23)  
The boat sank because it got uneven and the water go in. Like lots over others

here is a video of it happening

Boat Challange

Today we had to build a boat that holds the most possible marbels, using a piece of aluminium foil. We had to  build two boats and will try to improve your design between the first and the second.
You may only use a single piece of foil to build your boat
 You may not touch or adjust your boat once it is in the water
You must add one marble at a time
Here is our design and plan
