Going to learn how to use a kayak was a wonderful experience. For my first time in a kayak, I think I did really well at learning the difficult new skills. It was the most enjoyable time of my life. Thank you very much for the opportunity and I really appreciated it.

On the West Coast of New Zealand, there has been a 6.8metre flood. If I was there I would feel terrified. Imagine a flood like that in Auckland. I feel sorry for cows that have been electrocuted in the flood.

The flood can cause a lot of problems. If it hit the powerlines and they fall down, it will kill people and animals.
Some animals were very lucky because they were saved by helicopters that lifted them out of the water and onto higher ground.
By Mary
The flood on the West Coast was caused by a storm. This was a bad day in their lives.They were filling sandbags for the flood wall.
The powerlines fell down and electrocuted some cows.

The floods on the West Coast was caused by a storm. The Greymouth wall is strong and holding the water back. The storm has flooded the farms and brought down powerlines and electrocuted some cows.

West Coast Floods

Have you ever heard about a flood? Because last night in the South island there was a flood.Many people were rescued from helicopters.
When the flood began some elderly people got hurt. Many powerlines fell down on house's.
The flood in the West Coast of New Zealand heaps of rain cost flooding stranded residents, road closed and brought down power lines. The Grey River rose 6.8 metres last night. In 1997 there was a big flood, It was 6.9 metres deep. A little town at the the West Coast of New Zealand (Greymouth) build barrier to protect their town.

Mrs Speight's Last Day Assembly

Mrs Speight taught us this welcome song which we sang as a round This is a great song to learn especially as it is Te Wiki o Te Reo.

The NZ Falcon

The falcon is the fastest bird in the country. It has sharp claws so it can grab rabbits and little baby birds.The falcon digs into the rabbit when it gets up in the air so it doesn't fall out of the falcon's claws or the falcon will just have no food.

The Fastest Bird in the Country

The Falcon is the fastest bird in the country.The Falcon's claws are real strong.
It's sharp claws dig into its food so when its prey tries to break out, the falcon is still holding it.Then it takes its food up on a high tree. The Falcon has good eye sight so when it sees food, it can come down and grab it. It might be mice,deer,rabbits or other birds.
The Falcon can be killed by cats,dogs or gun shots from people.

Matariki


Tane Mahuta the king of Sea Creatures and the Seven Mermaids.

Hooray!! Early in the morning the seven Mermaids were swimming around in the deep blue sea having fun.The Mermaids got really hungry and went looking for snapper. When they caught the snapper they cooked it in the fire under water.

After the Mermaids finished eating they heard Tane Mahuta the King of sea creatures coming.

They tried to hide, but Tane kidnapped the seven Mermaids because he wanted to eat them.

The Mermaids tried to beg Tane to let them go. Tane screamed, “ No! You’re mine to eat!”
The Mermaids tried to trick him.One of them pretended to be sick and they tried to get the keys off Tane,but it didn’t work.

Finally, they escaped by picking the lock with one of the Mermaids hair clips. They escaped from the cage.

Now they were free at last. The Mermaids ask for protection from the God of the Ocean.

Tane disappeared into the deep blue sea, but Tane returned and grabbed hold of the seven Mermaids and threw them so high into the sky, that they became the seven stars of Matariki. Every year the mermaids shine so bright that you can see them and remember them.

Glen Innes library

Today, Room 7 and 8 from Glenbrae School walked to Glen Innes library to hear Vasanti Unka talk about her new book 'Hill and Hole'. It was a gorgeous day for a walk and we made it in record time. It was really interesting listening to how Vasanti made the pictures for her book - a mix of traditional painting and digital art. We think her illustrations go perfectly with the story. We hope you learn something too.
videoWe are very lucky at Glenbrae School because we have lots of lovely deciduous trees that drop their colourful leaves at this time of the year. Everyone loves playing in the leaves. Today, Danielle, Gemima and Gabriel joined the juniors having great fun throwing and playing in them.

We Enjoyed Cooking


On March 2011, we had carrots, garlic, potatoes, herbs, kumera, parsley, pepper, oil and salt. The people who were there were Hannah, Lisiate, Christian, Jerome and Mrs Palmer. We invited Miss Elia to have some of our healthy food. It was ready in 40 minutes We were glad it was ready. Hannah ate the garlic all by itself. Her mouth was hot and spicy so she spat it outside the hall. After Hannah, it was me that ate the garlic. Miss Elia said it was nice. She really liked it. Lisiate was smelling the food. He even closed his eyes so it looked like he was sleeping. The food looked yucky, but it was fabulous. It had no meat.

Smelling Roasty

On March the 17th, the gardeners made roasted potatoes.
We added vegetables with no meat. We added in potatoes, silver beets, herbs, kumera, carrots, garlic and a little bit of salt and pepper.
Later on, at morning tea, I went to check in the kitchen in the hall and suddenly Mrs Palmer excitedly said, “Lisiate come on let’s take a picture of you smelling the food”.
She took a picture of me. The food smelled very roasty.

The Blue Cod


Hi everyone!!
At Glenbrae school we have been learning about water. This week Douglas and I have been researching about the one and only blue cod. Now its time for you to read our famous well written REPORT.
P.S. Hope you learnt more about the blue cod.

Cooking Time


On 17 March 2011 Lisiate, Gabriel, Jerome, Hannah and I went to the kitchen with our special gardener teacher called Miss Palmer. We cooked some healthy food and then we went to the garden and got some more vegetables. Mrs Palmer gave me lots of carrots. We scraped the vegetable’s skin and put it in the big pot. Mrs Palmer put the pot in the oven. Miss Palmer let us go for swimming. When the bell rang we came back from swimming. After 5 minutes we went to the kitchen. Lisiate ran to the office and called Miss Elia.

Cooking from Our School Garden

On 17 March 2011
Christian,Lisiate,Gabriel and I went to the kitchen with our gardening teacher Mrs Palmer. She was teaching us to cook roast carrots,potato,garlic,herbs and pepper. First we chopped the carrots and potatoes. Then we cleared the table for stage two. We got a big tray, put in the chopped carrots and potatoes as well as squashed herbs, garlic and oil. Mrs Palmer put it in the hot oven to roast.
It took 40 minutes to cook. Mrs Palmer carefully removed the hot tray. She invited Mrs Elia in for morning tea. Mrs Boyer had some too.
The roasted vegetables and herbs were delicious. Miss Elia and Mrs Boyer thought so too.
Thanks Mrs Palmer.

Drumming

video
Last year, all the students at Glenbrae School were lucky enough to have a fun, fantastic visit from Chewy and his friends. They are amazing drummers and they have got heaps of drums, enough for everyone to have one. We had a great time learning some new rhythms from them. We were pretty sad when they left and took their drums with them BUT, thanks to the singers in the fantastic choir who donated their night's takings of $800 to us, we have been able to buy 10 drums for our school. Today, Room 7 got into the rhythm and practised some beats. We're not too bad but we plan on getting much, much better. Watch out for our next drumming post.
P.S.
Did you notice how Douglas and Lisiate made sure Nunia had a turn with the drum? I felt very proud to have two such helpful, caring boys in my class. Thanks you two. You are great role models.
Everybody else was great at sharing as well. I am lucky to have such a friendly and kind group of students in my class this year. Keep it up everyone.

Backstroke

video
Room 7 and Glenbrae School teachers had a tutor from Water Safe NZ come to school to help us learn how to be safe. She lent us some life jackets and told us to practise floating and kicking on our backs as this is a good way to stay floating for a long time. Some of us are getting quite good at backstroke and sculling to help us move through the water even without the lifejackets.
How do you think we are doing?

Lisiate Swimming

video
Hello Everyone,
I am Lisiate and I'm in Year 6 at Glenbrae School. I have been working hard to improve my swimming and breathing. I can swim the whole length without stopping. How do you think I am doing?

videoHello again Everyone,
We are so lucky at Glenbrae School because we have our own pool. Mrs Cooper, our caretaker, looks after it carefully so we can learn to swim and have fun in this hot weather.
We have so much fun swimming at lunchtimes. We take it in turns. Today was the girls turn and we had a handstand competition.

Waste Wise Audit

Glenbrae School is on it's way to becoming a Waste Wise School.
We had to save all our rubbish from everywhere in the school on Monday afternoon. On Tuesday morning, we had our first ever waste audit. It was hard to remember all the places we needed to collect rubbish from. We nearly forgot Miss Elia's office and The RTLB office. All the waste was taken to the hall for classifying and weighing.
Waveney and Marissa from Waste Wise Schools came to help us with the audit. Twenty five students were selected to be counters, sorters, checkers and recorders. Students from all areas of the school were involved, with the older students helping the younger ones.
We were surprised to see how much stuff we thought was rubbish, could actually be recycled or reused.
Our goal is to be waste wise and REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE much more in the future.
