We have used “farming” as our topic for the past few weeks. In maths we made up our own farms, decided the operations needed for this type of farming and the infrastructure necessary to carry it out. We then made maps of our farm, using keys, scale and direction.

In literacy we read letters written by NZ’ers that have grown up on a farm (Fleur Beale, Te Radar, Jennifer Somervell, Hannah Rowe, Sergeant Sue Burridge, Margery Fern, Kelvin McMillan, Darren Wise, Dr. Morgan Williams). We used these letters to help us make up questions to interview someone about their experience growing up on a farm. A main focus of this was looking at a value they learnt from country living. We also wrote about our own view of growing up in the country and what the pros and cons were. In art we have used Ted Bracey as our model artist and painted a farm in “100 greens.” … Di Cameron

Yr 8 Football team – Just this Wednesday the YR. 8’s drove to Brookside Park in Rolleston for the Lincoln Zone Football Tournament. The A team had 8 games and the B team had 5. It was super, super cold and very, very windy, so everyone was piling on layers. The B team had 2 cracking goals from both the Chloes but sadly were up against very good teams and lost. The A team lost most of their games except the very last one, where Nate scored two amazing goals against Springston. We all had a great time and learnt much more about teamwork and Football. Shout out to Chris Hoult who helped coach the A team and Ben Manson who helped coach the B Team and all the parents who took us to the event and supported us on the sideline.         By Izzy.
