Remembrance Day

We had our Remembrance Day assembly on Tuesday.  Claire, Cooper, and Logan did a wonderful job of reading their thoughts about Peace.  Well Done!

The Poopies that we created for art look amazing on the bulletin board.  We have received many compliments.  And all of the student's Peace Poems are also displayed.  Here's a look at them.

We had a great day celebrating Halloween at school.  In the morning we did math and language activities with a Halloween twist and in the afternoon we participated in Halloween stations. Thank you, parents, for all of the Halloween goodies for our afternoon activities.  And Thanks to Mrs. Tetley and Mrs. Sayers for staying to give us a hand with the party food.

Investigating soil

In science this week we investigated different soil samples. We were learning about what soil is comprised of. We recorded the properties of the soil including colour, texture and we searched for any organic or inorganic materials that we could find contained in the soil. 

Students collected their own samples from the playground to investigate and in addition, they also investigated potting soil, peat moss, and sand.

Another Stanley arrived

This week we had another Flat Stanley arrive.  Chris's Stanley came back from Campbell River, BC and he brought a very interesting package with him including several pictures, maps, tourist guide, beach shells and sea glass.  Very cool!  Well done, Chris!  Your family prepared an excellent presentation for us, thank you!

Xrays and Bones

Mrs. Leboldus-Campbell visited our grade 3s on Friday afternoon to teach us about her job at the hospital.  She's an Xray Technologist and had all sorts of interesting information to share with us about bones and x-rays. 

Dentist Visit

Dr. Sharma and her team from Appleway Dental visited our class today to teach about taking care of our teeth and visiting the dentist.  They even gave the whole class "goodie bags" at the end.

Field Trip to the museum

We lucked out with the weather and had a beautiful day for our walk to the museum.  We participated in Museum's "Emerging City" program.
First, we built dioramas of a city and then we participated in activities in the museum.
Thank you to our parent volunteers for joining us and giving us a hand!
