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, we started our day with gym and music, in gym we went outside and had the choice of playing four squares, basketball, or soccer. In music we played recorders from the basics. When we came from gym and music we ate our snack while Ms Neufeld was reading us the announcements, after that we started our literacy centres. In literacy centres, we read a chapter of the book we chose and had jobs to do after it such as synthesizing. We did math after that, in math we started multiplication, we brainstormed different ways to multiply. We talked about  traditional algorithm in which we stack the numbers and then multiply them, bow tie in which we break the numbers up and then multiply them, arrays in which we visually make the groups of the number. the teacher also handed our results for the multiplication and the place value assessments. after math we had lunch recess, when we came back from recess we did some calming activities which included reading a book, solving the puzzle etc. Then we had social in which we had to oppose or agree to this statement "school should be all year-round with no breaks". We brought our ideas together and chose a leader to represent our thoughts, the leader could also rebut the other leader. After social we had our recess, we did research on three political parties and their platforms about three major issues that we most value to see which party's values align with ours the most so we can decide who to vote for in student vote in social. At last, we finished our day with cleaning up.                                                                          ____________________

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 social we learned how to see if the information is correct in social media and we did more art. - Ornav


Sept 17: Hey guys its your blogger Azlan back with a another blog!  Today we did literacy centers. In literacy centers we have a new center called genius hour. In genius hour you can research about anything. Also when you are done you have to present it to the class. It can also be a google slide show,rap song (song),google docs. In writing we did some marking. We had to go in to groups of 2. Then we had to read over the topic and each group had one assignment sheet to work on together. We had some social studies. What we did some more democracy. In math we got a white bored and we did some drawing on the white bored. We had to draw a ones cube in 3D way. After we went in to groups of 3,4. We had to discuss how to draw this 10 Thousand cube. It was really hard and confusing but at least we tried our best for that big 10 Thousands cube. Well this is what we did for the day hopefully you guys are having a good day. It has been a blog with your amazing blogger have good day and goodbye!!! 

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!  


Sept 10: Hey guys! I'm back again with some more amazing and awesome stuff to tell you! Today, we had our very first Gym & Music of the year! The grade 6's learned a dance in Music to a song. In Gym we talked about the rules and expectations, later we had six hula hoops and we all were in teams of five or six, this gym class was also showing the skills of teamwork and cooperation with each other. Our activity was a structure in front of us and we had to make the same one, we have level one, two, three, four and five. In level one we just had to copy the structure. in level two we had to make two people crawl through the structure without having it to break! Later on in the day, we talked about some more CBL and Traditional learning. After, we learned how experts store their knowledge into their brain, the teacher showed us a picture of a house containing all the steps of how experts store their knowledge. At the bottom we have facts and skills, then we have a topic, on top of that we have the concepts, then we have the conceptional knowledge and at very top we have the theory. We had a class discussion about that with our and ms. Barr's class. We also played a game today! We played Sudoku!!! We all had a lot of fun in that! This was pretty much all we did today. This is your blogger Gurnur, signing off. Goodbye and have a good rest of the day.

Sept 9: Hello everyone! I'm your blogger Gurnur! I'm going to start off by talking about what happened Monday 9th. We built boats out of straw and duct tape on Thursday, we tested them today! This was for showing teamwork and cooperation. Later, we talked about Concept Based Learning (CBL) and we also talked about the differences between Traditional Learning and CBL. The definition of Traditional Education is what the teachers are teaching you but you're not doing anything to help you remember that information for a long time, on the other hand, Concept Based Learning brings "real world" meaning to the student's knowledge and skills. In the assignment, we got two pictures, one of them showed Traditional learning and the other showed CBL, we had to compare them. We also did SEEI on these types of learning, 's' stands for statement, the 'e' stands for elaborate, the second 'e' stands for example and the 'i' stands for illustrate. We also played a very fun game today! We had ten questions and the teacher picked a random alphabet letter and we had two minutes to answer each question, the answer had to start with the alphabet letter. That was all we did today! { :D }
