The students had a great time at camp this week. They had an opportunity to go rock climbing, horse back riding and swimming. They learned how to do archery and compass orienteering. Relationships were formed and friendships were strengthened. 
Thank you to all the drivers, and especially to Mr. McBride and Mr. Valentine for spending three days with the campers. 

Some pictures from our time at Camp.

The Grade 5/6 class have been learning about how Canadians were affected by the end of World War l; the effect the war had on women’s rights and the economy (the Great Depression). We discussed what happened in Canada after WW ll; the Cold War and the baby boom. 
Students have shown real interest in learning about both wars, and have completed projects related to both topics.

The Grade 5 & 6 students have been researching characters from the Bible, and have the opportunity to share what they’ve learned about that person with the class. They were given the chance to teach the class about the character, and to create an activity for the other students. They are loving this assignment and having so much fun! 

The Grade 5’s are beginning to learn about fractions. They have been learning how to compare fractions with common denominators, and how to make fractions with different denominators common. 

The Grade 6 students just finished learning about how to display data using graphs. They have learned how to create pictographs, bar graphs, double bar graphs, and line graphs.

The Grade 5 & 6 students are excited to begin writing an essay. We have been discussing many different events going on in the world, and they are wanting to use the knowledge they have, research it to become more of an expert, and create an essay using their knowledge. 

Thank you to everyone who came to our classroom this week to view their child’s second term work. They put a lot of time into it and enjoy showing off their hard work.

Next week we will be celebrating Country Week. Students are going to be learning about India and the rich culture of that country. Please ask your child to see their Passport at the end of the week, so you can see a glimpse of what they were able to experience.
