Water



The importance of water
Water is important in our daily lives we need water for drinking, swimming, having a shower, washing our hands, washing dishes ,washing our clothes, making ice washing our cars , and watering our crops

What is the water cycle?
The sun evaporates the water from earth. The water condenses into droplets of water in clouds .The water then comes in the form of rain called precipitation. The water collects into river, oceans, seas, lakes, steams, drains, creeks and dams.

How does water affect life on earth?
When we have little or no water there is a drought. When there is a lot of water a flood occurs.  Floods and droughts can cause damage to building, crops, people and animals

Waste Audit


Last Tuesday in the hall I saw Brandon, Deandra, Kahn, Tominika and all the students and all the teachers putting the rubbish on the mat in the Glenbrae School Hall.

Then Waveny told a girl to weigh with the rubbish bin. Next Waveny asked Marrisa how many waste audits they did.

I enjoyed it because I learnt how to sort out my rubbish.

Baseball Coaching


Last Tuesday after morning tea Room 8 walked up the field to play kickball with Aaron.
First we warmed up. Our warm up was to run to the pole. Next Aaron asked us to get a glove and practice throwing and catching with a buddy. So I got Laite to be my buddy but she wasn’t really good but she kept trying. After practicing we did the real game. We had to do it up to 21 but we did it up to 22 instead because Laite needed some more practice with her throwing and catching.

Next we played kickball. My team was fielding and the other team was kicking. The other team was winning but luckily Aaron was helping us.Then we got two people out and there was one more to go. Later on we still tried to get someone out but then Aaron got the last person out and it was our turn.

The first person was James. It was lucky that James was first because he was good at kicking. So there was lots of other people. Finally it was my turn. After I kicked the ball I ran really fast. Eventually the game was over. I had lots of fun playing a fantastic game and we enjoyed exercising as well.

Last Tuesday we had a lesson with Aaron doing baseball. Room 8 students played in different teams on the field.


When we started we had to go and get a mitt and a ball to pitch to our partner. After that we teamed up and played a real baseball game. The teams’ names were called out. It was red and blue. We used a bat for whacking the ball. When it was my turn I hit hard.


The baseball game was cool and I liked it because it was fun playing a real baseball game.

Last Tuesday after morning tea Room8 students went to play baseball on the field.

Coach Aaron was the one who was teaching us how to play baseball and he is a really good player and a really good catcher.

We all had to work as a team so we could have lots of fun. Some people didn't have fun because they took it to seriously.

Fun Water Day

Last Thursday the 17th of February 2011 at 9.30 am Glenbrae School had a fun water day .There were heaps of games and heaps of adults. They wore and the colour that their kids were in.

All the games were on the court and the field .The games were called three legged race, water slide, zig zag, t-shirt race, walking the plank and running with the cups. There were two bins. One of them was red and the other one was yellow.When we finished all the people were screaming. Then I tried to block my ears. I could still hear them. It was like there were one million babies and one thousand kids screaming over a little bit of water.All the kids had to wear the colours that they were in. Some people were wearing red and some people were wearing yellow clothes. Some people from room 7 had pink paint. They thought it was sunscreen and so did we.

It sucked because yellow team won. I was in red team. It’s okay because every one participating in the Fun water day. It’s about having fun and getting wet. The teachers got wet as well
