Molley Green Community Day

Kia Ora Everyone,

Room 6 have had yet another busy week at the Hay Park Headquarters this week. Our highlight this week has to be the preparations for Molley Green Community Day - which was held on Saturday 10th March at Molley Green Park.

The brief we were given was to 'get creative in the kitchen' meaning create some delicious treats to sell. Fudge seemed like the way to go: simple to make, scrumptious to taste! So armed with our basic ingredients: icing sugar, condensed milk, chocolate and butter, two groups set to work creating fudge. It was hard work as once the condensed milk, butter and icing sugar were combined, it was really difficult to mix together!

Although not everyone was able to participate in the actual creation of the fudge, we all got to make a label to go on our product and some of us made posters to advertise it.

Finally, after 21 long hours of setting in the fridge, the fudge was ready to be sliced and wrapped ready to be sold! Check out our slides showing all our hard work and finished products!

We're happy to report that our product was the first to sell out on the day! Yippee!!

That's all for now brilliant bloggers! Don't forget, leave us a message and we'll get back to you!

Miss B and the Parekowhai Peeps!

The World's Craziest Excuses by Parekowhai

Talofa lava bloggers,

This week we have been getting our teeth into our class novel 'There's a boy in the girl's bathroom' by Louis Sachar. So far we have been enjoying learning about Bradley - who is quite possibly one of the naughtiest boys ever - and his never ending list of ridiculous excuses. That made us think about the different excuses we've heard or even used for various reasons such as why we forgot our homework or were late to school.

Check out these examples by Rhia and Kanishka. Aren't they silly? Let these two wonderful pupils know what you think to their excuses.

Have you ever used a ridiculous excuse? Comment and let us know what it was!

See you later,

Miss B and the Parekowhai Crew :-)
