Monday-Wednesday we were at Evans Lake! A great time was had by all! Lots of new experiences and memories were made!

Reminder: Don’t forget your bathing suit and towel! If you’re driving on your own see you there. Don’t forget your “Mountainview Tickets” to exchange for tickets at the park!

Daily Physical Activity and Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. Students then worked on their section of Geometrocity (if unfinished), their independent novel study (due Monday!) their tie, their scroll writing and if all complete they read!

Friday, June 16

Reminder: Please be on time for going to camp on Monday. We would like the bus to be pulling out on time.

Today was Sports Day. In the morning we started with cheers in the gym. Students then did stations in the morning and in the afternoon we did whole school toilet paper wrap and the over/under water relay. A good time was had by all!

Thursday, June 15

Reminder: Tomorrow is Sports Day. (Rain or Shine…let’s hope for the Shine!) Remember to wear your team colours.

We started the day with Daily Physical Activity and Circle of Power and Respect. Students then started to present their oral presentations on some aspect of the Aztec, Inca or Maya. After recess, we finished off the presentations! Lots of variety from government to architecture to religion! Students then worked on a socials reflection and a geometry reflection. (although there are some groups that will need to get their section of the city done next Thursday before they join us for Reading Day.) Students then worked on their section of the city before and after lunch, up until they headed down the hall to go to French class.

Wednesday, June 14

The students started their day in French class. (They have a test tomorrow!) When they returned to class we headed to a quick camp meeting. (The notice went home with the items to bring minus shampoo/soap and the emergency contact number.) After recess, the kids had time to work on their section of Geometrocity. After lunch, students had time to work on their Aztec, Inca or Maya oral presentation ahead of tomorrow’s due date. We then had a cheer practice for Friday’s Sports Day. We ended the day reading stories about the three characters we are bringing to camp: moose, bear and beaver. They were Making the Moose Out of Life, The Busy Beaver and Big Bear Hug, all by Nicolas Oldland.

Tuesday, June 13

Circle of Power and Respect started our day today. Students then had time to work in their groups on the section of Geometrocity. (There were several reminders about what it means to be a good group member!) After recess, students had time to work on their independent novel studies before we headed to the gym where we played our last game of Purple Ball, for this year, for PE. After lunch, we practiced the special song and then students had a little more time to work on their independent novel studies before they headed off for the last of their health classes for this term.

Monday, June 12

The students started their day with time to work on their Aztec, Inca, or Maya project. (Reminder that this is an oral presentation about 2 minutes that is due this Thursday 15th. You can have index cards but not to read from; speak from your heart about the topic!) We then had our class meeting. We talked about doing a special song with other classes at the school for the final assembly. We then practiced that song! Students then had time to work on their independent novel studies. (Character sketches due tomorrow! We also talked about the fact that even though the dates seem far off they should really try to have their novel studies completed by this week! With camp next week there won’t be a lot of time to complete the work!) Read aloud was before recess. After recess, in Math, students had time to start to construct their portions of the Geometrocity. (We have made an exception for the odd shaped nets that we don’t have like an octagonal net (instead they could have a sign that incorporates an octagon or a pond in the shape of an octagon for example.) After lunch, we had a little time to play purple ball before we returned to class and the students went to their respective health classes.
