Mr. Grundy

Walt: write a narrative.
Every Monday is our time to go to technology, only year 7. I can’t wait to go again because we do wood work.

We always go on Mondays to Tamaki College to go and do our creation. The year 7 go to the workshop next to food tech. We just came from food tech after making some yummy snacks. On our first day Mr. Grundy just did talking and we drew our ideas.

We are being creative and making it become real. We used a bench vice and some tools such as a saw. A new tool I have never seen before is a trysquare. The try square helps you to get your lines right on you joint. My creation is a recipe holder, it helps you to cook and read your recipe so it comes in handy.

We always go after morning tea all the way to lunch time. It feels so short and sometimes really long when it is boring, I don’t think it’s boring. We get there by a bus and travel back the same way. We all wait for Mr. Grundy outside of the workshop and he will walk pass and take us inside.

We go to technology to learn how to use housing joints. Mr. Grundy teaches us how to use tools and wood but not mental parts. He tells us about safety rules and the stools that we sit on. He tells us not to fiddle because that means we are not working. After we have chosen our ideas for our creation then we will evaluate.

Measuring is really hard for me because we have to explain what angle is this and what centimetre is that and the other hard thing for me is sawing the wood. The saw had to be straight and had to be in a correct angle. The next thing I have to do is to; put my joints in for my recipe holder. Experiencing to use tools and to be creative was the fun part.

The best thing I love about technology is using the tools Mr. Grundy gave to use and showed us. I just can’t wait till next Monday.
