Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a lovely long weekend!

The class’ overall attitude and demeanour have officially entered ‘End of Year’ mode. Just a friendly reminder that we still have 5.5 weeks of school left, and lots left to learn. Keeping an open mind and positive outlook, remembering and engaging in appropriate behaviour and language will make it more enjoyable for everyone 🙂

WGSS Track & Field permission forms MUST be in tomorrow.

Also, for tomorrow: you are presenting your Career research fo Mr V, and les questions sur le vapotage are due.

We will continue our Science project and our Fr/SH/Drame project on Thursday.

À jeudi!

Joyeux jeu-dredi!

We had a pretty chill day today. We explored some creation myths for the various ancient civilizations we will be examining for the last few weeks of school. We also reviewed algebraic expressions in word form. We will be moving onto the next step on Tuesday.

Those that qualified for the WGSS Track Meet next Friday received their permission form today. Please sign and return before Wednesday. I am very happy to report that 10 students from Div 1 qualified! Bravo les amis!

Les Devoirs:

  • Mardi- Orchestre
  • mercredi- Travail pour Mr V: Questions sur le vapotage due, presentations, theatre de la marionnette
  • Sports Day Station Leader forms due vendredi

Wishing you all a wonderful looooong fin de semaine! À mardi!

vendredi le 13 mai

Happy Friday, today was pretty low energy, to nobody’s surprise.

Hopefully your child was able to describe some highligts from camp yesterday. Despite the cold and rain, I had a really good time. Low ropes, archery and kayaking were super fun, and lunch was pretty tasty. We made the best of the coldest and wettest May on record (I think I heard that somewhere)… at least we got to go, right?

Today we took our yearbook photos, had gym and band, tidied our boxes, and chilled.

Just a reminder that Monday is a busy field trip for us. We are headed to WGSS first thing in the morning for a super fun Science workshop with Mr Stephenson. We’ll be back for recess or before. At 11:30 we head to TWU for Science in the Valley, once of my favourite workshop opportunities! We should be back right for the end of the day.

I sent an email a few minutes ago with the TWU permission form for those that need to sign and return. Please do so ASAP. If you are paying online you have the option to complete the form there.

You already signed a walking permission form at the beginning of the year, so one is not needed for WGSS.

Also next week we need to finish our Track and Field events so we can run finals and decide who is going to the WGSS Track day near the end of the month. Students are advised to have their running shoes ready as when/if its not raining, we will go out and finish these events. Also, the 1500m race is Tuesday at lunch.

Have a great and restful weekend! À lundi!

Another busy day in the chalet!

After recess we headed out to practice some Track and Field events and I was super impressed with everyone’s participation! We did ball throw, 100 and 200 metres. We are hoping to do our actual events later this week (weather dependent), with finals next week. When I hear from Mr Knox what his plans are I’ll revise ours as needed.

Reminder for tomorrow: entrevue avec adulte, questions sur les esports (purple sheet)

Les Devoirs:

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. It’s looking like we’re in for a soggy week…

We checked out the Young Entrepreneur Show this afternoon, super fun!

We were hoping to run our Track and Field events this week… students should be prepared everyday to run or jump. If we need to postpone to next week we will, stay tuned.

I cannot believe Camp Jubilee is next week!

Les Devoirs:

  • Orchestre demain

À demain!

le 26 avril

We spent the morning creating our Mesopotamian God statues. The class was so engaged, and the statues turned out great! We will finish our posters on Thursday then our display will be complete.

Here is a sneak peak of the statues. Because of the nature of air drying clay, they will change somewhat as they dry, giving them more more artefact-like characteristics

Pour demain: entrevue avec un adulte sur son cheminement de carrier et source de lumière

Jeudi- Jump Rope for Heart helpers be ready!

Vendredi- Education Physique, Quiz de Verbe (IR à l’imparfait) et Orchestre

Thanks to a few people that have emailed saying they can drive to our May 16 field trip. I am still looking for more if you are free and able. TWU is only about 10 minutes from here! Thanks in advance!

Speaking of Jump Rope for Heart, Mme Foulds says we were third in Canada at the moment for school donations and the gap between us and first is not that big. If you haven’t donated online yet and have a few dollars to spare, the Heart and Stroke Foundation does amazing things with the donations they receive. Merci!

À jeudi!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend, it was so nice out yesterday! I took my daughter to Hazelmere Farm to see the 2 week old baby goats- adorable!

Another busy day in the chalet, verb quiz, socials project, math test, class photos… as a result of the photos, the math test today was practice! Students were allowed to keep their test and use it as practice/review for tomorrow… I will rework the test so it’s slightly different.

We are also creating our Mesopotamian God statues tomorrow out of air drying clay, one of my favourite projects of the year!

Camp forms are due on Friday, I am just waiting on 3 or 4 students.

I will be sending out an email later today looking for parent drivers for an upcoming field trip- stay tuned!

Les Devoirs:

  • Orchestre demain
  • mercredi- stuff for Mr V
