A Belated Welcome back for Term 3 from the Library Team

Thank you to the students who helped make the Hairy Maclary week a lot of fun.
It was a nice way to round off the end of term two.

Week 3 is already here and we are in the midst of many different inquiry topics:
megacities
rainforests
buildings
monuments
leaders of influence
disasters
advertising

The library has many resources to cover these topics from the following areas:
- non-fiction books
- reference books
- magazines such as National Geographic and NZ Geographic, Mana
- our Vertical File - comprised of a varied range of newspaper articles
- sophisticated picture books
- a wide range of relevant web-sites especially from the National Library

If your class is making models or art work related to your topics, we would love to display them in the library.

Week 3 is also the week to place your Scholastic Book order with us.
Cheques to be made out to Tauranga Intermediate School.
Please have them back to the library by Friday morning (August 16th)
