Thank to everyone for your support of our Terry Fox Walk. We raised a total of $668.90 this year with approximately ( ask your child about rounding/estimating) 300 students participating. Well Done!
What's Happening This Week:
Friday, October 19th - Scholastic Book Orders are due
Grade 6 Math Test (See below for content)
We are coming to the end of this unit, so on Friday there will be a test on the following: Standard, expanded, written numbers, rounding numbers to whole, tenths, hundredths, estimating, adding, subtracting of decimals and multiplication of whole numbers using a method of their choosing.
In Language Arts:
Library Day is Tuesday.
Autobiographies are now being graded by yours truly. Next week, we will begin two new tasks: 1) Reading of the novel Iqbal, where we will practice note taking and comprehension. This will lead us into WE Day. 2) Starting research of a Canadian soldier which will bring us to our Remembrance Day assembly which the Grade 6s are presenting.
The Grade 6 teachers are presently making decisions about who will attend WE Day. We have tickets for 20 students (we are still hoping for more). That information will be coming home in the next few weeks. We Day is November 14th.
We are also pleased to announce that the entire Grade 6 class has been invited to the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology for a week long study for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) to look at a project concerning sustainable living. All the 6s have been invited with 2 teachers and 2 parents (chosen already) to assist. (We do need 1 parent for Thursday and Friday. If you are interested please send a note to Mr. Graitson or Mr. Mayhew.) Again, more information will be coming as we get closer. The dates for this event is November 5 - 9.
