Welcome to Team Kakano Distance Learning for Week 6, Term 1
So many of our staff and learners are at home with Covid or isolating as a household contact. Thank you all for protecting the community by staying home and I hope that all of you who are unwell are feeling better soon.
This page will be updated daily with some activities that learners can do at home with the support of their Whanau. Please send a photo of your completed tasks to your teacher, we would love to see your work.
As always, please do what you can, when you can and if you can. The most important thing is to stay safe and well and look after your health.

Thank you everyone who came to our Zoom today, it was lots of fun. Reminder, our Friday Zoom time will be 2pm. We would love to see you there!
Wednesday Online Learning
It was great to see so many learners at our Zoom today! Thank you so much all the Whanau who are supporting our students during these tricky times, we really appreciate all of you :)
Step 1- Turn the oven on to 220 degrees and get two baking trays ready. Get your ingredients and your helpful adult ready too! You will need 4 cups of self raising flour, 300ml cream, 300ml lemonade.
Step 2- Measure 4 cups of flour into a bowl. Make a well in the flour and pour in the cream and the lemonade.
Step 3- Mix it all together. If you want cheese scones, add some grated cheese at this step.
Step 4- Tip it out onto a board and either roll it out with a rolling pin, or stretch it out with your fingers. If it is too sticky, sprinkle some more flour on.
Step 5- Use a cutter to cut out circles, or you can use the top of a glass or just cut squares with a knife.
Step 6- Put your circles or squares on the baking trays (not too close) and put them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
Step 7- Eat them while they are still warm with some butter inside or let them cool down and put some jam and whipped cream in them.
Sorry, no photo of the finished product because my family ate them all!
Tuesday Online Learning
We had three amazing little people join us today. Thank you and well done to Michaela, Lavella and Jehvell for jumping online. Also, Ms Russell did such an amazing job teaching. We wrote a story today about our favourite sea creature and counted to 10. See you all tomorrow at 11am.
Check out the photos below.

Rice bubble slice
Step 1- You will need 100g of butter, 1 1/2 Tbsp Golden syrup, 1/2 cup of sugar and 5 cups of rice bubbles. You will also need a big pot, a spoon to stir and a large cake tin or baking dish. Because we are using the stove, you will also need a helpful adult :)
Step 2- Spray the baking dish with oil spray or rub some butter on it. This will stop the slice from sticking. Then put the butter, sugar and golden syrup in the pot and ask an adult to help you use the stove to melt them together. When the mixture starts to bubble, tell your adult to turn the stove down to medium heat and keep stirring for 3 minutes, then turn off the stove and move the pot onto a heat proof mat or chopping board.
Step 3- Measure 5 cups of rice bubbles into the pot and stir everything together.
Step 4- Tip the mixture into the baking dish and squash it down with the back of the spoon.
Step 5- Leave the mix to cool. When it is almost cool, ask your adult to cut it into small rectangles.
Step 6- When it is fully cooled, try a piece and then share with your family. Keep the leftover pieces in an airtight container, such as a big lunchbox.
Step 1- Find all the different fruits that you can in your house. You can use fresh fruit or canned fruit like pineapple or apricots.
Step 2- Ask an adult to help you cut the fruit into small pieces.
Step 3- Get a bamboo skewer and thread the pieces on in a pattern. If you do not have any skewers, you can make a pattern with your fruit on a plate.
Step 4- Eat your yummy fruit kebab! You could also make a fruit kebab for someone in your house who is isolating.
