National Aboriginal Day

Today we celebrated Aboriginal Education. Although the name may be changing, the goal of the day – to celebrate and acknowledge the first people on this land, remains the same. Mrs. Keiver put together a fantastic morning of activities complete with games, stories, art projects, and yummy bannock.

Dedicated to Mrs. D.

Our Science Fair this year was dedicated to Mrs. Driscoll, who has been the heart and soul behind our Science Fairs for many years at our school.

Mrs. Driscoll has been at our school the entire time that you have been here. She looks after all of us and our school in so many ways. Tell me about something you love about Mrs. D. or something you would like to thank her for doing for you and our school.

Scratch Fair

To celebrate 10 years of the coding program, Scratch, and to show off our coding skills to the rest of the school and our parents, we had a Scratch Fair today along with the other grade 3’s and the grade 1’s!

It was great to see everyone sharing their projects, learning new things, and helping others. Way to go, grade 3’s!

What did you do at the Scratch Fair?

What could we add to the Scratch Fair to make it better next time?

The Curious Garden

We have been enjoying “The Curious Garden” by Peter Brown.

Here are some pictures of Mrs. Burgess’ trip to see the real garden in New York City that inspired this story:

This story fits into our preparation for the science fair. This week we have been getting all of our projects planted in the greenhouse. We are lucky to have a greenhouse so that we can plant even when it is not quite warm enough to plant outside. In “The Curious Garden,” Liam uses the colder months to prepare for spring as a gardener.

Write a to-do list that you think Liam would use to prepare for Spring.

Take Me Outside Day – Spring Edition

We enjoyed a fantastic Take Me Outside event last week in our buddy groups with our neighbouring schools. A big thank you to Mrs. Burgess, Mr. Clark, and Ms. Meens for organizing this event!

Music Monday

Today we celebrate music across Canada. Our school invited the high school choir to sing a few songs and then we played our drums for them. It was a beautiful day out in the sunshine!

What is your favourite thing about music?

Do you have a song that you love? If so, what is it and why do you like it?
