Grade 5 Art

We will continue with our Greek artwork. We will need a lot of newspapers/ paper flyers for paper mache this Friday. Please send along with your son/ daughter on Friday.

Grade 6 Language

We continue with EQAO preparations, by reviewing our questions and learning how to “beef” up our answers with strong evidence from text, as well as our ideas.

We were fortunate to receive a surprise visit from a two-time Martial Arts World champion originally from Iraq which provided a perfect opportunity to practice asking questions and we are now going to write a news article based on his visit. Perfect timing!

Underground to Canada reader is ongoing with comprehension exercises and vocabulary. Noble Brother vocabulary has also been assigned in order to enlarge the students’ language toolbox.

We also completed our speeches and learned a lot about fantastic subjects that are timely and relevant to all of us! Great work to one and all.
