Team 4 - Term 4 2018


Every year 3 schools (Wadestown, Northland, and Brooklyn) participate in a Tri-Tournament. Each student chooses a sport (rugby, football, chess, petanque, hockey, tennis, netball, table tennis or dodgeball). For each sport, the winning team would have one point for their school.  The winning school is the one that had won the most sports. This year Northland School hosted the Tri-Tournament but Brooklyn won by one point. Everyone had a great time playing sport for the whole day, with a massive shared lunch.

First Day of TechFirst Day of Tech
Today we had the first day of technology, but this term it is all working a little bit differently. The year 7s are split up from the year 8s in most classes. Since the year 8s are leaving the year 7’s are mostly doing gift making for them. However, in T5 we are making felt dolls for the babies born prematurely at Wellington Hospital to put in their Christmas stocking so they can have a happy Christmas too! Instead of art tech, the people that stay back at school (Year 8s) are doing a mixture of things such as sports, working with computers and music.

On 1st November, the Kapa Haka performed a small powhiri (whakatau) to welcome the new students to Northland School. To start the whakatau off, a group of girls led the new children and teachers in with a Kai Karanga then the Kapa Haka group performed. Mr Edwards made a speech and the school council sang Purea Nei.

Still Life ArtStill Life Art
In Team 4 recently for art we have been doing still life. We were given 3 objects 1 big, 1 medium and 1 small and have been sketching the proportions of each object. For example you might have a jar, a cup and a drink bottle. We also need to think about the shading of the objects.


Athletics DayAthletics Day
On the second week of Term 4, Teams 2, 3 and 4 all participated in Athletics Day.  The sports consisted of high jump, long jump, sprints, vortex, 1,500m run and quoits. Every year had a different standard to get into Western Zones. Everyone had a great time spending the whole day doing athletics, and as you could imagine everyone was very tired at the end of the day.

Team 4 is currently in the process of writing speeches to share in front of the class. These speeches can be either persuasive (persuading people to do/give you something) or informative (giving people information about something). We were given a planning sheet to write out an introduction, three main points and information about those points and a conclusion. Then we are going to type our speech onto cue cards, but we are not allowed to write the whole speech on the cards, we can only have our main points which means you have to know your topic well!
