Yesterday, the children of Piccola read the story of the Gingerbread Man. After reading the story the children had the opportunity to bake their own giant gingerbread man. There was only one problem… when we went to get him out of the oven he was GONE! The children had to follow the clues left by the gingerbread man all over the school. We visited many different places and people. Our hunt ended with a special note left for us in our classroom and little gingerbread men for us to decorate.
Grade six are engrossed in their study of microscopic cells, particles and fibres.
Our Level Fours are having their workshop on fractions. They are having a great time!
Today the Level Fives have a Math workshop.
It requires a lot of decision making about materials to complete a building from the ground up.
This workshop proves that we use math in our everyday lives. Math matters……..
Students in UE1, UE2 and Grade 6 presented their amazing French projects this week. Students and teachers from other classes came in to see them during a walk around and our guests voted for the “most extraordinary” invention.
Our Invention of the Year winners as selected by our guests are Mustafa Khan, Evan Beffort and Bailey Richards. Congratulations!
UE 1 asks………What do you think will happen, and why?
Senior French students worked together to bake bannock, croissants and create a fruit salad according to the areas they studied in their respective French units. Grade 6 students baked bannock after learning about Lethbridge, Alberta. Grade 7 students created a fruit salad after studying aspects of Port-au-Prince, Haiti and grade 8 students baked chocolate croissants after reading about Gréolières, France. A delicious time was enjoyed by all!
Senior French students are hard at work preparing their final unit projects for “Eureka!”; a unit that taught us about inventions and project planning. Students chose a situation that they could remedy, created an invention to solve the problem, gave their inventions original names, created logos and are able to speak about the advantages of their creation. They will take part in presentations and a gallery walk of their work in the upcoming days.
