Term 2 - Week 1: Skipping

It's great to be back at school, although it's a little nippier than Term 1! Term 2 is time for skipping at Glen Innes School and students have already started practising their routines for the Skip-a-thon (date to be confirmed later in the term).

Practice has begun!

Term 2 - Week 1: Tamaki Rejuvenation Company (TRC)

On Wednesday afternoon Room 10 visited the Tamaki Rejuvenation Company (TRC) container which was stationed at the front of the school. The visitors shared the plans for the Tamaki area with the students. These plans include building 7 500 new homes over the next few years!
These new, affordable homes will be architecturally designed to maximise space with clever design and will feature high ceilings and windows to let in light and warmth. There will be a variety of styles, giving our streets and neighbourhood an individual feel.
By offering a range of sizes, from 2 bedrooms to 4 bedrooms the TRC hope to attract a great mix of new home-owners.  Singles, families, working or retired - variety makes a great community!

Week 1 Term 4

It was really good to be back at school after a very wet 2-week holiday. Our topic this term is 'Weather' and we started off by learning about The Water Cycle. We re-created our own Water Cycle in a plastic bag. We were able to to condensation, evaporation and condensation. We stuck our bags to the windows to get the sun's rays as this is essential to the Water Cycle!
