Into the creamed butter and sugar, sift the cocoa and flour and add the baking powder.
Measure one cup of milk and set beside the mixing bowl. As you begin to mix the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture with your beaters, slowly pour in the milk.
Once the cake batter is well combined, pour into the greased tin.
Place in oven and bake at 180°C for half an hour or until the cake begins to pull away from the edge of the tin, the cake’s surface springs back to the touch, and when a clean skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
once you remove from the oven, leave to stand for 5 minutes, then remove from tin and allow to cool on the back door step or in the fridge

This is what i heard from my mum and dad :
Is when you focus on your work you move up in your learning and you know more when your older and you will get a good job.

How the kiwi lost its wings

How the kiwi Lost Its Wings
It was a good day and Tanemahuta was walking through the forest. When he looked up at his children, he saw that they were getting sick because all the bugs were eating them.

He talked to his brother Tanehokahoka, who called his children the birds of the air together with them.
Tanemahuta asked the birds to help him by coming down to the forest floor and living with his children. All was quiet and not a bird spoke.x1

Then the Tui said that the forest floor was too dark and he was afraid of the darkness. The Pukeko said that the forest floor was too wet and cold and he did not want to wet his feet. Pipiwharauroa was busy building his nest so he could not come down.

Tanehokahoka looked at the Kiwi. The Kiwi looked up at the trees and saw his family. Then the Kiwi agreed to live on the forest floor.

Tanemahuta was happy because the Kiwi                   agreed to live on the forest floor. Tanemahuta told the Kiwi that he would lose his feathers and had to grow strong feet to survive on the forest floor.

Then Tanehokahoka turned to the other birds, and he punished them. The Tui had to wear two white feathers to show that he was a coward. Pukeko had to live in the swamp forever. Pipiwharauroa was never allowed to build a nest again and had to lay its eggs in other birds nests.

He blessed the Kiwi because of his great sacrifice. The Kiwi became the most well known and most loved bird of them all.

Tane Mahuta's children lived safely with the Kiwi on the forest floor.

My holidays

Wow my holiday was great.....all of a sudden my dog started to bark. I looked out of my window and I saw Jerome with his Aunty in his car. It was cool that I got picked up by Jerome and we went to Blockbusters and hired one scary game.

It was called the 'Dead Island Ripted.' When we got it, I was so happy. When we got to his house Jerome was the first one to play it.

I was playing so much that the batteries ran out of battery juice. It was one of the best holidays of my life.

Simple mechanisms

Where have you used it?

A lever is a stiff bar that rests on a support called a fulcrum which lifts or moves loads.
A wheel with a rod, called an axle, through its centre lifts or moves loads.

A pulley is a simple machine that uses grooved wheels and a rope to raise, lower or move a load.
A wedge is an object with at least one slanting side ending in a sharp edge, which cuts material apart.

Zombie Invasion

lI:To do good writing and to be a good leaner.   
When it hit midnight in the old town where there were weird drink bottle machine’s and a mystery box that had guns in it that the human’s could use.

When angry zombie’s were desperately hungry for human flesh the F.B.I, C.I.TS and C.I.A had a bad messy situation.

They had seen the human’s fighting for their lives and then they joined the human’s when they thought  it was all over but it was just the first round.

They travelled to a place that got nuked two times in a row they called it nuketown zombies the weird machine’s from the nuke cloud if they all just  went away it just might be good to the human race.
