Technology at T.C (Tamaki College)

Last year we had our first ever Technology as year 7’s at Tamaki College.Our subjects where Graphics,Wood,Food,science and electronics.This year we went to Japaneses for the first term and our teacher was Mr Ishibashi,He was from Japan and come to teach how to speak Japanese.My favorite week was when we made Oragami and played a game that was like swing a egg to try land it on the spoon,we made Samarise hats and these blades with four pointy ends.What I learnt from that class was how to count in Japaneses up to 20 and learnt how to say the Japaneses mouths

Japaneses was fun and if I get to do it again I would.!!

Thanks to Samson for checking my work.
