Year 7 football
Norwood v Elmgreen (South London Schools Cup) 18.10.13
The Norwood year 7 football team made their debut in the South London Schools Cup against The Elmgreen School. Despite some excellent performances Norwood lost 6-2 with our goals coming from Fahren Doumbia Yapi and Ali Mohamud. Genesis McLeod was named Man of the Match after a fantastic performance which saw him playing in midfield and in goal!
Norwood v Bishop Thomas Grant (Friendly) 25.10.13
Norwood took part in well contested first half in a high quality game. BTG raced into a 3-0 lead before goals from Fahren Doumbia Yapi and a Bekim Bajrami penalty brought Norwood within one goal at half time. Norwood put in a great defensive performance until Man of the Match William Palmontonia was substituted through injury near the end of the game. Ricardo Sousa made an outstanding save from a contentious penalty before three late goals made the score 6-2 in BTG’s favour.
Norwood v St Josephs (Friendly) 22.11.13
The year 7 boys team raced into a three goal lead after only eight minutes with some fantastic attacking play. Fahren Doumbia Yapi scored for the third game in a row from a corner and shortly after Bekim Bajrami slotted home the second. Daniel Duncanson started his brilliant Man of the Match performance with a cool finish for the third before St Josephs started their comeback. With the score 3-2 at half time, Norwood conceded another early goal immediately after the restart to make it 3-3. With Norwood in the ascendancy and pushing for the winner, the game was halted early due to bad light. Norwood eagerly awaits the rematch after drawing a game they started so well.

Mr Waro took the Year 7 girls football team to Walworth Academy for the South London Schools 5 a side tournament on Thursday 28th November. With two schools failing to attend the tournament it was down to Norwood and Walworth Academy to battle it out to see who qualified for the next round as winners and runners up.

There were some fantastic performances throughout the team with excellent defending from Lailani Wilson combative midfield play from Louise Machado and a superb attacking display by Player of the Match Katherine Garcia who scored an impressive hat-trick! A big well done to all the girls and we look forward to the next round of the competition.

We do like to be beside the seaside…
The geography department (part of Humanities) took their Y11 students to Seaford beach in West Sussex to complete their data collection for their coursework. Having set off at 8.00am we reached Seaford in good time to start on the typical – who can skim the pebble the furthest competition. Once that was out of the way we started on the real work – collecting data for our coursework. We conducted two beach profiles at Seaford as well as completing questionnaires on the locals and tourists visiting, finishing off with some sketches and drawings of the coastal landforms found to the far east of Seaford. We just had enough time to visit the café for a warming hot chocolate before heading back to school. We managed to collect some brilliant data that students are now using in their lessons to draw beach profiles, scatter graphs and analysis in preparation for their final submission of their coursework.

On 25th October 53 excited Year 7 students went to the IMAX cinema in Waterloo just before half term to see a film called African Adventures. It was quite an adventure in itself getting there as they had to negotiate a train change at London Bridge during a busy morning! They have been studying a unit called "Where in the world?" during their lessons and the aim of the trip was to increase their understanding of Africa by finding out more about its wildlife. The film was in 3D and we had the whole cinema to ourselves. It was set in a wildlife reserve in Botswana and showed how filmmakers captured the images we see as well as showing some amazing animals like lions and elephants very close up! The behaviour of the students on the journey there and in the cinema was excellent. We look forward to taking out Year 7 again later in the year."
