Go Jays Go!

Lots of us are quite excited about the Toronto Blue Jays (Canada’s ONLY Major League Baseball Team) and how well they have been doing in the post-season so far.

One of our classmates, Payton, got to go and see the Blue Jays play in Seattle earlier this year!


Do you watch or play Baseball?

Do you have a favourite sports team? If so, who is it and what sport?

Sew Much Fun

We have been reading the story, “Mr. Peabody’s Apples” and doing many activities with the book. Our final project was to sew our own pillows. It was tricky, but everyone did such a good job. After we were finished stitching up the sides and stuffing our pillows we ended up taking scissors to the middle of our pillow. We were able to stitch this back up. This relates to the special message in “Mr. Peabody’s Apples”.

Learning Computer Language

Today we started to learn how to code using the Code Studio! You can find the link under our Learning Links tab at the top. This year our class received a grant from SET-BC for technology in our classroom to help us learn how to code. We were very excited to get started 🙂

What is the language of computers called?

What do you think we can do when we learn how to code?
