Team 3 - Term 4 2018


The Vicky ProjectThe Vicky Project
As you all may know, Vicky Balfour has a little infant on the way (a boy) and Team 3 had a special 3 News as a way to say goodbye. A lot of people prepared skits, plays, scratch games, videos and dances to say goodbye. Vicky is kind, intelligent, funny, caring and generous. We will all miss her very much. She was a very good teacher!

Team 3 RobotsTeam 3 Robots
In Team 3 some kids from each class have been chosen to build robots. They used online step by step instructions on iPads to create a robot on 3 wheels, two at the back one at the front. Then Team 3 will share the robots between classes. Together the classes are going to code them to do cool stuff!


In Team 3 we have been using a coding website called Scratch. In Scratch you pick sprites (as you can see in the photo) and you drag out a command and the sprite does your command. We have been learning simple stuff like making it spin and making noises and other easy step by steps.

Bake SaleBake Sale
On 25 October Northland School had a bake sale to make money for the Year 8 leavers dinner. At the bake sale there were such things as: cookies, sweets, jelly, macarons, slices, lollipops and much more. Some of the food was even Halloween themed. Just before the end Northland had a few lollies left to sell, with ice blocks at Kelly Sports summer soccer. But by the end of the bake sale Northland School had raised $1010 for the Year 8 leavers.

Musical GenresMusical Genres
In class we have been doing musical genres and we have a different genre for every week. This week we are doing rock and roll. At Three News the Three News team has to prepare a slide or two about it. We really enjoy choosing songs from different genres because lots of the song we haven’t heard before.


Hundertwasser ArtHundertwasser Art
In Team 3 we have been doing art inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a famous artist. He was born in Austria in 1928 and moved to New Zealand in the 90’s. We have been drawing villages and landscapes of our own; most of our pieces of work have been wild and creative just like Hundertwasser's art was. Friedensreich Hundertwasser was also an architect. Most of his building were crazy: really cool and definitely not straight! Hundertwasser believed that in nature nothing was straight and even, and that every tree, every plant was made up of heaps of wavy lines.
