It was such a treat to be asked by the kindergarten teachers to help out with their Olympics Day today. Students were involved in team leading, running a station, or helping with the timing of the event.
What a fantastic job of all our Grade 6 students for helping to make the morning a fun and smoothly-run event. Congratulations to you for such wonderful displays of leadership.
I am so, so sorry that this didn’t go up earlier… let’s just say that there were some “technical difficulties” getting this up, but believe me, I have been trying! Anyways, before I get into anything else, I just wanted to say: Thank you all so much for a great year. And after looking back on it, I can easily say that it was my favourite one BY FAR. I really hope you know that you guys are the people who made it happen. So without further adieu, here’s the comic!
Best trip ever!! On Monday our class went to East Park for a field trip. East Park is a place with water slides and other fun activities such as mini golf, bumper cars, go carts, jungle gym and more. We were aloud only 4 activities. We chose water park, mini golf, and go carts. Our favourite part was the water park, the Bullet especially! It was a “blast”.The go carts and mini golf were fun too, but extra busy. All of our class enjoyed east park and it will definitely be a trip to remember!
Have you ever been to East Park?
Do you like water slides? If so what is your favourite one?
On Friday, the school went outside to do some skipping and yoga! Jump Rope for Heart is the organization we were supporting–students were asked to bring in some pledges to support the cause and we went outside and got our heart rates up by turning the ropes! Some of us ventured into trying double dutch while others used the individual small ropes.
At a separate time, we found a little shade in our school yard and were led through a small session of yoga. Tree pose, cobra, warrior pose…we were ready.
In learning about probability, we’ve been playing some games in class such as Horse Race, Race to the Top, and Pig.
Today, we worked in groups to solve a problem involving probability. It was a question from last year’s EQAO test. At first, the problem looked a little unusual, but once the students read it and understood it, it didn’t seem as daunting.
The future, one of the most mysterious things out there. Some picture a floating city with flying cars, while others think of a barren wasteland, and some just think of the same we have now.
The future is an interesting thing to think about, because everyone has a different idea of what it will be like!
This is what I think the future will be like:I think that the world will be very hot on the surface, so people would have to live underground, and the oceans would be much higher because of the icecaps melting. By then new space technology would be invented (in 3004 or so), and people would try to colonize space. If global warming hasn’t toasted the planet, cars would probably be fully electric. People might have robotic servants, making the attention span even worse.( as if it isn’t bad enough already :P) But the most significant detail I imagine, will be that there will be lots of radiation in some areas, because of countless was in the next 1000 years, but not making the whole world a mess, in fact, people in the future will probably be happier than us, but those are just my thoughts.
I loved the Spirit Day on May 4th, “May the Fourth Be With You”. It was awesome because I love the movies. I was excited to wear my shirt. It was cool to see everyone dressed up and to hear the music from the movie played over the PA in our school.
