Room 10 played softball
We all got so excited
I caught the ball well

Our gloves were sweaty

softball is awesome

Matariki Poem

  Matariki walk,We all gather round
            All children’s feet patter on the ground,
            Moisture in the air
            like there's no taste,
            Tiny eye’s of God is our spirit.
            Seven Sister’s in the sky.
            Shining their light so bright,

            Finding their handsome men from the sky.

Long Bay Trip

Some students from Glenbrae school travelled to Long Bay by bus to learn about the rocky shore.Once we hopped out of the bus we had to have 10 minutes of morning tea.Then we got spilted up into 9 groups. I was in a group with Tevita and Edwina,Danielle,Anamanu,Eseki and Me.

Next Sarah told us who we were with,Our group was with Sarah YAY!!!!. Our first activity was looking for things that lived in the rock pools.Our group found heaps of stuff that belonged in the rocky pools like starfishes,limpets,carp and also dead carps,what we mostly found was moving shells called cat fish snail "THAT'S A WEIRD NAME" I pronounced .I think they called it that because every time they poke out of their shell they have these long whiskers like a cat and it has a shape of a snail's shell.That's what I think WHAT DO YOU THINK.

Visit to Auckland Zoo

   Auckland Zoo
On Monday the 4th 2014 our class and Room 7&9 went on a trip to the Auckland Zoo.When we got there our Tutors John,Laura and Richard introduced themselves. Then we walked to this noisy place where you can hear heaps of birds singing and talking to each other.

The next thing Laura put us into our groups and we had to go with our tutor John. We first went to this place where we saw lizards. Then our tutor John took us into this weird entrance  like a hallway but way shorter with two doors at the end.

John told us they built that weird short hallway there so the cats and mice don’t go near the birds.Once the door we entered from was closed then we can open the other door which can take you to the other side where we saw a Kakapo,two Keas and a Weka. It was creepy once I walked in but it was pretty funny because the weka was always falling down from the top of the rocks.

Then later on we moved on into this night tunnel once we walked it said to turn your flash off from your camera but the funny thing was I couldn’t see anything but we saw lots of kiwi’s.Me and Hannah spotted three kiwi’s I thought kiwi’s were small but once I looked at it clearly I was thrilled because they were huge that was my first time seeing a Kiwi in real LIFE.

After that we walked back to where we all settled down in the first place then Lennyx thanked the tutor guys on behalf of glenbrae. Then we had to get into our groups and I was with Tevita, MissAtuahiva, Mangila ,Nganga, Apii, Danielle and Gemmima and the rest. We had to eat our morning tea in this big fale but their was not enough space so our group went to go sit under a picnic table under the shade.

After a while we had to go into our own groups and our group went first to the Tiger and we saw it trying to get shade because it says that when it’s cold then the tiger will sit on the sun to get warm and when he is hot then we will sit under the shade.Then we went onto the rest of the animals onto the zoo and it was fun and trying.Sadly we had to leave the Auckland Zoo and it wasn’t cool but I wish we go back to the Zoo.

Rangitoto Challenge

Today Me and My Friend Edwina had a challenge to complete for our homework we only completed one challenge and it was to do activities for the little children in the Junior area. We first did a relay we had to split them into two groups one was mine and one was Edwina's group. First they had to zigzag past the cones and when you get to the end you do 5 star jumps then run and get the ball from the middle and zigzag back then the next person.

We got onto the next activity and we played octopus me and Edwina were the tagger they were pretty hard to catch and tag but there was only suppose to be one winner and it was Lilo she did a great job. Then we played a game called take the ball and it’s when you get into two groups with many players you get and you face each other and then someone has to start squeezing your hand and when they start to squeeze your hand then you have to squeeze the next person's hand then when the last person with the ball next to them and the last one to get squeezed has to pick up the ball and say I GOT THE BALL with your EYES SHUT, but unfortunately my team lost but it was FUN.

Bio Poem

Beautiful,tall with curly hair
Lover of singing, eating and sleeping
Who wonders what the future is going to be like
Who fears clowns, huge dogs and heights
Who feels enthusiastic and gleeful
Who is able to finish work on time
Who would like to be a doctor
Who dreams of being a photographer living next to a beach.

Basketball Lesson with Our Coach Steph


Basketball is a ball game for two teams of five players each in which goals are scored by throwing a ball through a fixed hoop fixed at each end of the each.

Today we learnt how to do the Chest pass, Overhead pass, long pass, bounce pass and layups.

First thing we did was to find a partner, one standing in front and one at the back. She told us it was a relay game, we had to run halfway of the court and do 5 star jumps then the next person goes.

When we finish we go through the next instruction. Which was to do two push ups. But my partner had to do the girl push ups.

As we finished we went on to the next instruction and it was to do layouts. Layouts are when you lay on your stomach and jump high with your hand up high.

Then we got onto the Competition and we still had to stay with our same partners. We first had to do practise doing the Chest pass, Overhead pass, long pass, bounce pass and layout pass.

Basketball today was fun and full of fitness. I am proud that I achieved the lesson without any problems. I hope I have another fun session.

School Resource

I think Glenbrae School would like to get a Food packaging Machine because when students don't have lunch and they forget to buy it they can go and buy their lunch from the Food packaging Machine, the teachers can use it to.

Food packaging Machine would help us with healthy food in it and it is cheap and we can use the money for something important like sport gears,school property,orphans or we could give it to the poor children in the world that needs food and if we were able to have much we can donate it to the ones who has poor cancers.

Then Mrs Ripata said “that we had to first do the obstacle race” we had to walk quietly down to our first activity I felt like the activity has lots of experience in it.Then Mrs Tofa  blew  the whistle then we had to start everyone screamed and cheered for their team mate first person was Wairua he ran and got the cup and he had to fill it up with water, then he had to crawl under four chairs stuck together with the cup in his hand then he ran straight to the blue bucket same with the other houses then we all had a go then Mrs Tofa blew the whistle to go to the next activity.
