In addition, if there are any individuals who have cycling knowledge or knows how to tune up bikes and would like to contribute their knowledge to this event, please reach out to Ms. Bignell at At a later date we will be sending out some details to ask for volunteers for this event! Stay tuned!

Designing a Playground

We have been thinking about what a new playground might look like.  We started by researching playground companies to see what kind of equipment is available.  We took notes and sketched our favourite components. 

 Then we used our favourite components to design our dream playground.                 

After that we reflected on what the most important part of a playground was to us.  We made sure to think about using descriptive language in our writing. 



We also collected data to figure out what our favourite playground components were and drew a bar graph to represent our results. 



Our Grandfather Teachings this month is around Truth.  We reflected on slowing down and listening and understanding people and events in our life before jumping to conclusions.  We also talked about the importance of being true to ourselves and trying to be an honest and sincere person. 

Animals in Sweaters - Inspired by Indi Maverick’s Fancy Animals

We created realistic looking animals using implied texture to create fur and interesting and detailed patterning using bright, bold colours.
