This week, we had the opportunity to participate in a curling program called Rocks and Rings. The first day we learned skills and techniques and then the second day was a tournament style. In math, we continue to strengthen our understanding of multiplication through the use of different strategies. We are also concurrently, working on our math catering project where we are combining multiple mathematic ideas together. In grade 6 science, we are building upon our understanding of air and how it impacts soils and gases. We are now researching different concepts relating to aerodynamics and proving that they exist. In grade 5 social, we are continuing to look at how the land impacts communities, both positively and negatively. We made a persuasive writing success criteria and are going to be persuasively writing and making videos on what natural resources are the best/worst. In writing, we have finished our constellation stories that we made. We looked at mentor text aka picture books, to determine the different textual features and what makes a picture book a picture book. Finally, we made a success criteria we wanted to assess ourselves.

So, today we had pictures and we didn't have recess sad day. Also author Marty Chan listed our school and told us about his novels. The first thing we heard was his most embarrassing moments when he was a child. So let me summarize so what we heard was this: "I hated those pants I prayed to God that no one from my school was there then I scanned the shop and was relieved that no one from school was there. But at the corner of my eye I saw the most popular girl in my school Trina Trisha Tana or whatever and in my mind I said don't look don't look and my mom some how read my mind and screeched like no other annnd said "Marty walk around!" just then popular girl from school look right at me I thought she was going to laugh but smiled. Then I thought she was going to smell my hair like how i did."  THE END.- Mara

Today the grade sixes had gym and music including the grade fives in gym class Ms.Leung thought us how to play four square and blob tag and in music the grade sixes played the glockenspiel metallophone and xylophone and drums also contrabass bar. The grades sixes tried kahoot for the first time ever, Congratulations to Ornav and Manahil for coming in 1st and 2nd for kahoot. They also learned about reliable sites and images and we went over some of the images and we learned that people can take a picture and change the whole entire subject and you will be in the middle (confused), we also got some images and we wrote down our thoughts about the images, for example, one of them was a Female and a Male going to shop and on whole entire shelf all the water was gone because people were panicking because hurricane Dorian was coming and it was hitting the Bahamas.

DRESS appropriately for the weather And grade sixes please read your P.A.T's form with a guardian or your parents that Ms.Bains wrote for you

This week we learned about the history of Indigenous People and residential schools. We learned about the treatment of children at these schools. We went through a interactive event series to try to understand what it might have been like to go through that. We talked about reconciliation and what it means and how to do it. We introduced sky science and weather. We also continue to work on our democracy as we approach our student vote.

Sept 26: Today in school the grade sixes  learned about  sky science in it we learned more about space.in social we learned how to see if the information is correct in social media and we did more art. - Ornav

Sept 16: Hey guys its Azlan back with a blog.Today we did some literacy centers. After that we did math. In math we did place value. In place value we had to make colloms in order like this hundredths,tenths,ones,tens,hundreds,thousands,10 thousands,100 thousands,millions. Each collom represents a shape.  to do it in written form,expanded form,Standred form. We also did some social studies. In social studies we did something new. The teacher gave us a paragraph about Governments. We had to explain it,and then we had to restate it. Restate means that you have to rewrite the paragraph but we had to write it in our own words.Then we went in groups,and we did some discussions about how we can solve the problem from kids getting hurt from ATV. After that we learned these words called autocratic,democratic,consensus. Autocratic means when its one person that they only vote. Democratic means when its multiple people voting. Consensus means a general agreement. We also did a school art project. what we did is that we had feathers and we wrote and drew what represented us. This is what we did for the day hope you have a amazing day and goodbye!
