January has been a busy month already. Students are continuing to work hard in the afternoons.
In health, we reviewed the 4 food groups and have been discussing how to use Canada's Food Guide. Grade 3 students have looked into the differences between processed and unprocessed foods, while students in grade 4 are learning about serving sizes. Did you know you can use common items such as, hockey pucks, baseballs, golf balls and erasers to help figure out how much a serving size is.
Our students in grade 3 are still working on building structures out of straw and trying to make them strong enough to hold a book. It is much more challenging than they thought it would be.
Grade 4 students have discovered how to build a pulley and how it can help move a load.
We have also started to learn about the elements of Drama. We have discussed what makes a theatre drama unique or different from TV shows or movies we usually watch.
A reminder that there is no school Monday, January 30th, as it is a PD Day.
