Thank you to all of the Grade 6 parents and students who made our annual Thanksgiving Potluck such a wonderful success last Thursday.
Senior French students are brainstorming their way into their new units of study. Grade/Level 6 students were hard at work thinking of various hobbies and past times. They are beginning their work toward a motivational speech in French about an activity they are passionate about.
Zone 7 students will be focussing their energies on the various ways that technology impacts our day to day life. Their final product in this unit will be a critique of a movie, song or video.
Zone 8 students will be diving into their new unit that is all about them! The final project they will be working toward over the upcoming weeks is an in-depth description of themselves and their preferences.
Grade six are engrossed in their study of microscopic cells, particles and fibres.
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!
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.
