We've had another fantastic week here in Grade 6 at Nellie. Again we spent lots of time outside and observing our world. Students had a fun learning about foreground, middle ground and background in our Emily Carr inspired art (you can try it at home here. As promised there are a few snapshots of our #naturegrams from our novel Wishtree. Next week we are so thrilled for the Federal Election and Student Vote! How will our students will vote compared to the rest of the country...?

The first two weeks of Grade 6 have been full of learning, fun, and lots of time outside! We have started to look into our first area of study in Science, Trees and Forests. Nellie is so lucky to have our own little nature area and quick access to South Glenmore Park. Tied in with science is our first novel, Wishtree by Katherine Applegate. It is a fantastic story and everyone should read it if they get the chance. Have you seen the latest post on #Naturegram? Look for new posts soon!
