Melville Intermediate - Cooking with our Japanese students

On Monday 31st October 2011 myself Hannah, Shanon, Kylie, Kennedy and Morgen went to the cooking room after morning tea.  We went there to teach half the Japanese students how to make Pavlova and they got to make Hokey Pokey.  First me and Shannon went up the front of the class and taught them how to make Pavlova.  We demonstrated and they were all looking at us.  I don't think that they understood us very well.  We then put it in the oven.  While it was in the oven we made Hokey Pokey with them.  All Hokey Pokey is made of is sugar, golden syrup and baking soda.  While the Hokey wa setting we decorated the pavlova and got some plates ready.  We served it to the students.  We gave them a slice of Pavlova with cream and kiwi fruit and one slide of Hokey Pokey ice cream.  They told the Japanese teacher that it was really sweet.  I think that they still enjoyed it though.  They left and we cleaned up and came back to class.  We all really enjoyed the experience.  Report by Dante Room Eight.  This video of the students working in the cooking room was filmed by Hepa from Room Eight.
