Around the World!

This term we have been on a trip around the world! Along the way we have been learning new skills, such as salsa dancing and using chopsticks. We have also been tasting different food from different countries. Check out some of our highlights in this video:

This week we got a visit from Rako Pasefika, a dance company from Rotuma. It was amazing to get the chance to learn more about this Pacific country, to hear a little of their language, music and dance.

We had two sessions which were lead by Samuela AKA Skillz. He was an awesome tutor and we learnt so much in such a short time (less than 2 hours!). We really enjoyed the experience and are proud of what we accomplished. Check it out below:

This afternoon Room 4 compared one of Italy's most famous pizza's with the most popular pizza flavour sold in America - pepperoni. We have just completed an inquiry on Europe and now we have started to investigate North America.

We started by watching a video about Italian cuisine and then we did some googling to work out what America's favourite pizza flavour is. We found out a lot about pizza - it is a popular dish worldwide!

We then created the pizzas in both styles. The Italian pizza was a Margherita, which originated from Naples. The story behind is that it was made for Queen Margherita as it shows the colours of the Italian flag. It is made from tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese. We used a little bit of olive oil on the crust to make it nice and crispy.

The pepperoni pizza had tomato sauce (with sugar and herbs like oregano), pepperoni and mozzarella. We didn't put any oil on this pizza, but it was quite greasy due to the ingredients on it.

Some of the comments that the class made were:

Pepperoni is more greasy
The Italian pizza looks better
The Italian pizza has better texture.
Pepperoni pizza is really just meat and cheese
American Pizza is more popular because you can taste the fat and sugar.
The Italian Pizza Is very Flavourful and tasty. You can tell they used fresh ingredients.
