About Me

My name is Danielle and I attend Berkley Normal Middle School as a year eight. This blog is all about my learning in school and out of school. There are six people in my family my Mum, Dad, Myself, Amy, Hannah and Patrick. My family lives on a dairy farm where my Mum and Dad work. My hobbies are Irish dancing and swimming. My favourite is Irish dancing so I get to do competitions in Auckland and this year I'm aiming to go to the nationals. My favourite subject at school would be maths because there is always are right or a wrong answer; unlike english when you have to keep improving and keep improving . My favourite tech art is food because I really enjoy cooking and I would love to be on junior master chef. Every year my family go camping with about six other families. We take tents and our boats and go ski biscuiting and fishing and one time we went to Cape Reinga. My favourite year camping was when we visited and snorkeled at the Poor nights New Zealands' best snorkeling attraction. My family love fishing and we belong to a fishing club so we do competitions sometimes. We have been to Fiji and England and they are both great places to visit we went tobogganing and built snowmen in England and we went snorkeling and swam with Manta rays in Fiji. I hope you like my blog and please comment on some of my posts.

Ice Blocks

Food Tech - Ice Blocks

At our school we are fortunate enough to have a food tech room, where my group trialed a quick pop maker, called Zoku. Here is a list of pros and cons.


  • It was really fast and efficient
  • Really easy to use
  • Clear instructions, with eye catching booklet


  • Quite hard to remove quick pop from product/machine
  • Breaks fairly easily

This product was really easy to use, there were only a few steps and it was undeniably efficient. One flaw though, was that the orange tool you use to remove the quick pop broke with minimum use. Overall I think that our experience with this product was quite enjoyable and I recommend you try out the Zoku Quick Pop Maker.

We also trialed the old way of doing it using molds. This way wasn't as efficient and takes longer but is more reliable.

We made a smoothie for this with berries milk and yogurt, and then put the mixture in the molds. We then left the ice blocks in the freezer overnight to freeze.
