Another superstar week in the world of Glenbrae. So much learning and a few exciting extra-curricular activities too.
We discovered a few of our students had green thumbs in the Monday Garden Club, they made a fantastic job of weeding and tidying our school gardens.
I wonder what wonderful things we can grow this year!
Festival of Education...
Several of our students also enjoyed a trip to the Festival of Education to showcase their learning. A huge thank you to Lennyx, Hannah, Danielle, Te Puawai, Edwina, Jerome, Mrs Raj and Mrs Elia who gave up their Saturday to share how and what we are learning at the Festival of Education.
Literacy Learning ....
In literacy we are currently learning about Information Reports.
To help get us started the Kiwi reading group successfully analysed an information report to locate all of the features. Well Done!
I look forward to seeing these features showing up in our writing too.
A huge congratulations to our Certificate Recipients this week:
