Math: Sign and return Probability test
On Thursday June 8 at 6:30pm your child will be taking part in the school's Spring Symphony. Each child is allowed to have two guests to come and watch. All students are asked to wear a white shirt (blouse or dress shirt), black pants or skirt (black nylons/stockings) and black shoes. Students are asked to arrive at 6:00pm so that they can be organised and set-up with the class. Thank you for the support! Additional information has gone home in the form of a note today.
In Writing class, we have been writing First Nation's Legends. The students are writing multiple drafts and are focusing on using good descriptive words (making use of a thesaurus). The students are also continuing to work on their passion projects. Passion Projects are projects that allow students to learn about topics of interest to them. Some students have created website and are trying to teach other's about their topics. Other students are interviewing other people to learn about future career interests. The topics are extremely varied, as are the products that are coming out.
Because we are so busy with our writing tasks at present, we have put Book Clubs on hold. I can't emphasise enough however, how important it is to keep up with nightly reading. Students in grade 5 should be doing no less than 30 minutes per day. The students can still go to the library to get new books as needed.
