Food for thought

This week in Room 9 we have been learning all about the nutritional value of food products and how to read food labels. We started off by learning about different food groups and what they included. Then we moved on to reading food labels. When reading food labels, we looked for these 5 things: energy, fat, sugar, fibre and sodium. We were lucky enough to head to Pak n Save to put what we had learnt into action. We went around the supermarket looking for certain food products and completed the form about their nutritional value. We had SO much fun learning about food and how to read food labels. 

Thanks Adelle for all your help!

How to be an active listener

In Room 9, we have been learning about how to be an active listener. We brainstormed lots of excellent ideas as a class. The students then created their own slideshow about what an active listener is and tips on how to be an active listener. Here is a great example by Rose. We hope you enjoy reading some handy tips on active listening.

Slip, slop, slap and wrap!


We have started off the year by learning about how to be SUNSMART. Students have been working hard to create a poster all about being sunsmart. 

Wear a hat, put on SPF 30 sunscreen, find shade, drink water, wear sunglasses and cover up!

The students posters have been displayed in the class.

Fun in the sun

What a beautiful day to have some fun in the sun with lots of water! Glenbrae students enjoyed an awesome day competing against each other in their house groups. They competed in 5 different activities and rotated around each one, trying to fill up their house buckets the fastest!

WOW! Look at this beautiful weather! We have started swimming every day at Glenbrae School and the students are having a great time cooling themselves off in the pool and learning how to swim!
Make sure your children remember their togs, because we swim EVERY day!

All About You... Teachers

This movie is all about teachers and why students appreciate us. They had to think about what they think teachers are important.
