Movie Review of Grease (AGGS)

Production Review of Grease by Auckland Girls Grammar
Grease is a musical about two love birds. The girl is a nerd but is very intelligent and the boy is cool but not  very smart.

My favourite part was most likely  the start or the ending. I liked the start because it had a nice start to the play, all the characters came to the stage. I also enjoyed the ending because everyone came together and danced happily as we clapped.  

I liked this play because the actors were very good at dancing and singing, they were also very confident. It has lots of singing, dancing, old concepts and romance.

I would recommend this to college students because the actors in this play are around their age.

I would give this play 5 stars out of 5

How to make Maori Bread/Takakau

How to make Maori Bread/ Takakau

WALT: Follow the structure of a  procedural text

Takakau is a traditional maori bread. It was first made in the 1800’s when the Maori traded with the British. They got some ingredients and made Takakau. Bread was originally made by the British but the Maori changed it up a bit. It was mostly made with flour and water but to this day people may use baking powder and milk to make it more fluffy. The Maori usually ate it with “Boil Up” or hangi, or you can eat it with butter and syrup.

½ a teaspoon Baking Powder

7. Heat oven up to 200 Degrees celsius and cook it for thirty minutes
8. It will be ready when golden brown
