My Lamb Licorice

Here are some pictures of my lamb that I took when I was feeding it. 

Last week I got my Lamb for calf and lamb day at Auroa Primary School (APS), it is one of the many big events at school. But I wasn't the only person who has got a lamb or calf so far, Mums friend does the lambs and gets all the lambs for mum to give to people who are having lambs for calf and lamb day. I called my lamb Licorice because Licorice can come in black and white. I feed my lamb 250 mills of milk 3 times a day in the morning, at lunch and at night after we feed our calves. My Lamb sleep's out in the stables by our house with hay. Have you ever been to a calf and lamb day? Have you ever had a calf or Lamb? These are all question I am asking myself so comment below!!

Survivor Room3

Over the past week Mr Webb, Mr Bloor and the whole of Room3 at Auroa Primary School are creating a video of survivor. Mr Bloor has  produced a stunning video which we're going to use as the opening credits. Our students had a first challenge of the show - they had to have a 'serious' face when they were formed for the opening sequence - which wasn't as easy as everyone thought! During the holidays we'll be showing several episodes - apart from being contestants our students are also responsible for the filming, editing, props and planning so everyone is involved including the eliminated contestants. First episode will be released later this week. I hope you enjoy the video!!

Go Taranaki!!

The photo Caro and I got with Berny Hall.

The photo Caro and I got with Hika Elliot.

On Friday the 18th of September I got invited to my friends house. Her name is Caro and they were wondering if I would like to go to the game with her and her dad. I said yes he came and picked me up at 5:30 after school and we then headed to the game when we got there in the family zone there were free nuggets and chips that was our tea. We then went to find our seats we were row-B in the stadium at New Plymouth right up the front with a great view of the hole field. Caro sat next to her dad and I sat next to Caro. Taranaki was vs Waikato my teacher Mr Webbs favourite team. Both rugby teams had to wear there club rugby socks and we saw Hika Elliot wearing Coastal socks that is Caro's dads rugby team (He coaches). During the game they were throwing bread out to all the seats the old fashion way and we cought a loaf. We also got to be on the TV 4 times cause the camera-man was right in front of us. After the game we were allowed on the field to take photos and get autographs Caro and I (Jorja) got 9 autographs and a photo with Berny Hall who had a great game and got man of the match so well done to you and then we got a photo with Hika Elliot caros dad took the photos. After the game we went to McDonalds and we got a drink then travelled home to Caros house and we went straight to bed.

Picking Tamarillos

My Pic-collage that I created of pictures that I took of the picking of the Tamarillos.

Yesterday we went to our friends house and we picked some Tamarillos, Tamarillos come in different colours including Purple. But the orange and yellow ones are the sweetest flavors the first picture is the inside of a Tamarillo because we cut a Tamarillo up and we tasted it, it was sweet and had a tarty taste to it. Tamarillos grow on a tree, if you know a friend or someone you know who has a Tamarillo tree if you want to grow your own, by taking a cutting of the tree or sometimes if you can get a sprout and pick it off then you can grow your own. 

A Tamarillo tree or plant is fast growing some Tamarillo trees can grow up to five metres tall. You may not know that a Tamarillo is also known as a Tree Tomato. The fruits are egg shaped and grow 4-10 cm long.  Good shelter is vital as quick-growing Tamarillos are very brittle, have large soft leaves and tend to be shallow-rooted so exposure to strong winds can cause serious damage. Have you ever tasted a Tamarillo? Do you grow your own plant/tree? These are some of the many questions I am asking myself so comment below!!
