Syndicate assemblies

Syndicate Assembly Week 8

·      Sport: 
*The ASB Girls Soccer Tournament is to be held in week 10 of term 3
*Congratulations to the Y5/6 Girls and Boys hockey teams as they won the Central Zone trophy by coming 1st and 2nd respectively.
*Y5/6 Boys Hockey feedback:
“They took direction very well, and outplayed teams with players with much more experience by working well as a group, backing each other up and showing superior fitness (and bravery). They exhibited good sportsmanship on and off the field, supported the girls when possible and were a real credit to the Muritai School. Most importantly they all seemed to enjoy themselves and are all very keen to play again”.
*Water Polo – The finals are this week.  Make sure that you check your emails for times etc.
*North Island Primary Schools Ski Championships – The following Y5/6 students took part in the championships last week:  Tobias Knight, Max Hahn, and Mathew Jones.

·      ‘Mean Green House’ competition
*Grace Allan, Ella Tait, Eva Oliver and Lauren Redpath (of Room 13) have been working on a project over that last few weeks, which they have entered into the ‘Mean Green House’ competition.  They have put a lot of hardwork and effort into this project.  You can see the video they made, as part of the project, on Room 13’s class blog.

·      BP Technology Challenge
*Last week Muritai School sent 2 teams to the BP technology challenge.  Pablo, Eden, Ella T, Charlotte W and Grace Ogilvie made up the Year 5/6 team.  The team had great success, placing 3rd in the ‘known challenge’ section of the event. 

·      Enviro School
*The Enviro Team (Eden and Rosa) will be setting up a new compost bin for the students to start putting food scraps in to.

·      Maths

·      Y5/6 Speech finals are today.  Good luck to all of the finalists!!!

·      Homework: 
*Room 11, 12 and 13 are coming to the end of the inquiry homework.  All of the required homework is due in by Friday.  Room 14 has an extra week as they started the inquiry homework a week later.  There will be a NEW and improved version of homework starting in Week 9 and will include – Reading, Spelling, Mathletics, inquiry and an ‘Extra for Experts’.

·      ‘Tell the teacher’: 
*It is always important to ‘tell the teacher’ about any incidents that happen in or outside of the class.  The teacher needs to be informed of things that are contrary to the class OR syndicate expectations.

·      Mathletics: 
* Free Parent Access!
You can register for free parent access so you can view your child’s progress and certificates.  Visit Fill in the required fields and submit Record your new username and password.  Each student’s Mathletics account holds information relating to individual results and progress.

·      4 C’s:
