WINTER RECESS ROOM
We have been lucky to be able to have the space to create a room that will get us through those cold winter recesses when we are stuck indoors and still keep students engaged and active. The room is filled with various stations for students to participate in such as a 'Makerspace' area, a 'Yoga Studio', a 'Science Explorer' area, a 'Lego' station, a 'Crafting' station and a 'Games' table to name a few! The students have tested the room out and agree it is a lot of fun.
THE GREAT PUMPKIN INVESTIGATION
The Grade 2 students have been having a lot of great, gooey fun while investigating pumpkins. What's inside the pumpkin and how does a pumpkin grow? How many centimeters is a pumpkin's circumference and how much can it weigh? Ask your child the answers for these questions and more as they explore pumpkins!
OAK HAMMOCK MARSH FIELD TRIP
The grade 2 classrooms along with room 12 had a fun-filled day at Oak Hammock Marsh on June 23rd. Some of the activities included Marsh Bingo, and Critter Dipping. The weather was beautiful and students had a great time doing a marsh walk and checking out the wetlands and learning about the animals and insects that make it their home. Many thanks to the staff at Oak Hammock Marsh for taking the time to spend with our students and showing them around the marsh.
Ever wonder what a Dragon's eyes might look like? Well, students in grade two created their own dragon eyes out of plasticine and the results were amazing! After reading the story, 'Me and My Dragon', they wrote stories about what they would do with their own dragon and what they would look like. Check out these fantastical creations!
GRADE 2 VISITS CHURCHILL
Students in Mrs. Figuieredo and Mrs. Bui-Arias classrooms had an exciting, fun-filled day virtually visiting Churchill! Throughout the day, students moved from various stations to discover what blubber feels like, to make some bannock, build Inukshuks and discover Churchill artifacts in a mini-museum and much more! The exciting day was part of their ongoing studies about the people and animals of Northern communities.
Who's as big as a polar bear? Not us!
Let's make some yummy bannock!
