We shopped until we dropped!
Board game testing day!
Some interesting discussions as we fine tune the rules!
Grade six spent a very interesting and informative few hours with Lianne Harris this morning. She brought lots of Aboriginal artefacts for us to look at and explained their significance in the life of the people who used them. Many of the artefacts belonged to Lianne’s own family which brought a new perspective to the stories she told about everyday life for Aboriginal people.
This afternoon Grade 6 had the opportunity to complete a workshop on riddle poems with published poet Cassidy McFadzean. Cassidy talked about riddles as a form of poetry and shared some examples from The Hobbit before assisting the students to write their own. Can you work out the answers?

Grade 6 are seriously excited about this year’s Math Fair project. I can’t wait to see what they create!
