Today we are making cake for some girls in our class and we will eat the cake in the garden with Janis and with Wendy. We will be happy when we will eat the cake.
Last week it was my birthday and everyone was happy to eat my cake, it was so sweet.
Everyone has one each cake but I had two cakes.
Everyone likes eating cake! At school when someone in our class that have birthday cake they like to make a cake and share it with their friends. We sing Happy Birthday too.
My birthday was a fun day and I was feeling special.
When we did cooking, we measured the banana leaves so they were the same size.
Then we helped Wendy to break open the coconut.
Then we grated the Cassava and mixed everything.
Last we wrapped it up in the banana leaves and cooked it.
I felt excited to learn how to do the folding up.

Roberta is helping us to plant new seeds at our new garden.
She is a good teacher in Shepherdson College for teaching in Yolngu Matha and also in the Garden with Wendy and in the classroom with Janis.
I get a yield from Roberta because she shares her knowledge with me, and she also makes me feel proud and strong.
When I grow up, I want to be a nice lady like Roberta.

We were peeling the coconut so we can make Cassava+banana desert.
I like to eat coconut with my friends and I like to climb for coconuts up the tree.
I just climb, I don’t use any rope. I feel safe because my Dad taught me to climb the tree and open the cocunut by myself.
Wendy my teacher didn’t know how to open the cocunuts so I was teaching her. It felt good and exciting to be a teacher.
