Well if you have a big family i would  crack 12 eggs into a bowl then put   a half a cup of milk beat it together with a fork.Then half of a teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of pepper, chop up really small, one onion, chop up some bacon.
add these ingredients to the eggs, defrost half a cup of mixed veggies, put it in the eggs mix all together, put a large pan on the element.Then put a tablespoon  of butter/margarine turn on to medium heat, then when the butter is melted but in the egg mix. cook until the veggies are soft which would probably be 10 minutes. Maybe add extra salt and pepper serve and eat yummmmy scrambled eggs.

my cool snow!!1

   MAGIC SNOW!!   
   Hooray earlier this morning  the students made snow with Room 8!

Firstly,I looked at the packet and I was so excited I got goosebumps.

Next , we got given a little puru (blue) packet with a clear little packet with the polymer inside it. Ms Bracey put half a cup of water and included the water with the polymer. And it rose like a balloon!

At Last,when we put the polymer in the plastic cup
Miss Bracey put more water in the plastic cup, then
the water absorbed . When I played with the snow it wiggled and jiggled like jelly. I was scared that it wouldn't work!

Tripoli A long time ago a boat called Neptune was on the sea. And on the boat there was 764 soldiers in that boat but there was 150 NZ on the boat. Deep in the sea was mines (bombs). The mines got there from their worst enemies the German people. So when they would go over the mines they would blow up. And then with the 764 soldiers in that boat sank with the boat. Tripoli T.P.S Now Tamaki Primary is surrounded in Tripoli Tobruk Benghazi and Alamein I think I know why Tripoli is so close to us. So we can learn about the war and remember them. From Lydia Tumai

Lydia bridges

Room 8 went to the yacht club to view the site of the Panmure Bridge.
The first Panmure Bridge was a swing bridge. 
The swing bridge is not there because it was old so it got demolished.
It was unsafe for cars and people because it could break.
In the olden days, a man called Hemi he would like to sell produce to Australia to  get some money.

Two weeks ago a  concrete bridge collapsed on a 8 lane highway in America and crushed passing cars. One year ago a woman went to cross the 8 lane highway. She was going to the other side to university and she got hit by a car and died. So that is why they made the bridge. Two weeks ago when the  bridge collapsed the emergency  people came. The people under the bridge got really injured. The helicopter was too loud the emergency people couldn't hear the people saying "Help, Help". Some of the people were crushed to death,injured and some people survived.
