The Tatau

 In year 7/8 extension we have been investigating the art of tatau. Tatau is a Samoan tattoo which men get. The tatau starts at the waist and stops at the knees most of the time. It is supposed to be a symbol of strength and pride.

Last week we were privileged to have Mr Tele'a come in to our class and show us his tattoo. He came in and answered our questions that we had about the tatau. He was very helpful giving us a lot of information.

We now have to create our own two tattoos one is to represent our culture and one to represent ourselves. I have currently only completed one and i'm working on my culture one. keep posted to see my tattoo design

Fire Pit Cooking

Last week all the year 8s went to camp in rukaka at Marsden Bay Christian Camp.
I am going to explain how to do one of our camp activities which was cooking eggs on a fire.

Step 1. Find an orange and 2 eggs.
Step 2. Cut the orange in half.
Step 3. Scoop out all the orange so you end up with two empty halves of an orange ( you can eat the orange if you want).
Step 4.Empty the eggs into each half of the orange.
Step 5. Wrap it up with aluminium foil.
Step 6. Place the package on the fire. The ideal place to put it on is in bright orange embers.
Step 7. Take it off the fire. If you want the yolk runny you can leave it on for 3 min or if you want the yolk hard leave it on for 5 min.

Unwrap the egg and if you want you can eat it straight out of the orange. Serve with salt and pepper. ENJOY!

Future Jobs

In the future I think there won't be as many jobs left for people as they might be all be taken by robots. however that  means that there will still be jobs as people still need to make the bots. new zealander craig nevill manning , Google's engineering director once said “if you had asked me when I was a teenager what I wanted to do when I grew up, I would not have said helping to build a search engine because the web did not exist then. For every new internet application, there will be a whole new set of associated jobs”.

Did you know many jobs are already being replaced by bots such as surgeons, weighters, security guards and even human like robots, but obviously there are some jobs that are irreplaceable such as Police, doctors, builders, vets and many more

Tangle pattern

As apart of our topic (art alive) we created a piece of art known as a tangle pattern. a tangle pattern is an endless knot .

first our teacher gave us a piece of paper that we had to draw a pattern on. For my piece I grabbed a compass and drew awhole lot of circles. We now only need a few more people to finish their bits and then we can connect them.
