First and Last day of Tech with Mr Grundy
The first day of tech for me was very nerve racking. I really didn’t know what to do, I was practically lost. Well not fully lost. Mr Grundy who was our Hard Materials teacher was very kind and friendly.
First of all we would have to be seated and then be given a paper. Where you would have to draw and plan about what you would want to create to get top marks for the next few weeks. But before that we had to learn the rules and basics of becoming a great hard materials person.
Throughout the couple of weeks I was in Hard Materials I learnt a lot. I learnt how to make a housing joint, I learnt a lot about the tools we could use and I also learnt that building things are very very fun. For my project I was making was supposed to be a jet boat, when all of a sudden it turned out to be a space car. It still looks very cool though.
It was very hard in the making of this project, but it all was worth it because I got a top mark for it which was 5. I am very pleased with my final product because it looks very good and it is also one of the first wooden craft things I have ever made.
On the last day being in Hard Materials was very fun. All I had to do was burn in my number plates, which was my name Rita. At the end of the session, I thanked Mr Grundy for everything he has done for me and then left. I loved my class and I wish that I could stay in that class for the rest of the year. But I also want to do cooking as well.
