Weekly Update:  October 2-6

Dear Parents,

Thanks for coming out to the meet the teacher night.  I look forward to a challenging and interesting year with this class, and it is nice to know what kind of support I have from our class parents.  So far this month we have done a lot of work of various kinds.  In writing,  we have started  a descriptive writing unit, “Writing About a Place”.  I am just going through the first three assignments they have completed.  Take a look at the link “Descriptive Writing” in the online resources of this page.  In math we have completed a small unit on telling time to the minute, and have started a unit on large numbers to 10,000.  I have sent home a outline with more details.  In science it has not been all about stickbugs(!), but also making scientific drawings and careful observations of animal habitats.  Please take a look at the photos, with more coming on Monday.

We are about to embark on a virtual tour of First Nation territories in Canada, with students using map skills to understand how first nations adapted to life in different parts of Canada.

Friday there will be a Mass sponsored by the Grade 4 class.  It would be great to see parents out to participate and see the work of Grade 4 students.
