Cans for GoodCans for Good
Cans for Good is a charity that gives food (that is in cans) to people who can’t afford them. Last week we started to bring in heaps of cans. Our room (Room 11) collected 54! On Friday we gathered all of the cans that the whole of Northland School had brought in. We made all of our cans into a display that was N♡S.
 

Persuasive WritingPersuasive Writing
In Room 9 for writing we have been trying to persuade Jane to let us do a subject at school that we don’t do, or something we don’t want to do.  We started doing a descriptive plan and writing what the three main points were, then putting two pieces of evidence to go with it.  After that we got to start the conclusion and had to revise what we had written.  Finally we got to publishing the persuasive letter in our books.
 

800m Run800m Run
The 800 metres was on Wednesday 25 and it was held at Newtown Park. The Year 5 boys and girls went first and then the Year 6 boys and girls went second. It was a good race: the track was wet but not too slippery.   Everyone had a great race and had lots of fun.
 

Team GamesTeam Games
One of the games we play in our team is prison ball. It is when you line up balls in the middle of the court and you run to get the balls so you can throw the balls at the other team to get them into the prison. If you get hit and you get into the prison you have to catch a ball on the full to get out again.
 

Māori WritingMāori Writing
On Friday 20th October in Room 11 we started our Māori writing! We started off by brainstorming things about the Māori culture like…. they speak Te Reo Māori, the tattoos, taniwha, they celebrate Matariki and much more. After that, we either chose whether we were going to do the writing in partners or by ourselves. Once you had chosen your partner, you chose what you were going to be researching your writing on. You also had to choose a second subject because the first one you wanted might be taken. After you had chosen, you had to look up your topic and make a google slideshow about it. Once we had finished, a few people got to present and share their finished slides. Here are people working on their Māori writing.


 

Spooky WritingSpooky Writing
This week on Monday we started doing spooky writing in Room 11. At first Vicky played us some spooky music and then we had to close our eyes and think of a scene in our head. Next we quickly started planning out our ideas because otherwise we would have lost them. The next day we started to write our story down. After that we showed it to Vicky and then turned it into a video. We made it into a video on WeVideo.
 

Athletics DayAthletics Day
In Team 3 for athletics day we went to Ben Burn Park and started our first sport, then when the hooter went we started our next event. The Year 5s and 6s were split up because they had different standards for everything except the sprints. The sports were long jump, sprints, vortex, high jump and quoits. You had to pass the Western Zone standard and be in the top three to get into the Western Zone. It was lots of fun!
