Greetings Grade 5C Students, Parents, and Guardians,

What a fantastic week in 5C. The students can be very proud of their New Frances speeches this week. They worked very hard to write a script that could transport them back to the 1700s for a day. It was great to see their hard work pay off. This week we also developed our skills in hockey, read some dramatic chapters in our ‘Island of the Blue Dolphin’ book, and earned our way to an extra recess this week. 

Next week in Math we will finish our Unit in Geometry.We have begun constructing triangles this past week and we will be reviewing that for an end of the unit assignment next week. 

In Bible, we will be continuing our Unit on the book of Ezra and Nehemiah. The students are learning about the Israelites returning to Jerusalem and the complications that came with rebuilding the temple and fulfilling the prophecies while still under the Law. 

In Literature, we have been exploring different elements of poetry and the students are enjoying being creative challenging themselves with deeper thinking in poetry. Next week we will explore erasure poetry. 

In Socials  we are coming to the end of our New France unit. Next week, we will take a look at the fall of New France to the British. This will lead us into a conversation and writing activity that explores the question “Why do we have French on our Cereal boxes?”

We are also starting a new Unit in Engineering and where we will be building a ski jumper. Students will be required to use the materials provided to design a ski jumper that can go the furthest distance off a jump. Students are encouraged to bring in weights such pennies, washers, bolts or nuts to help balance the ski jumper. 

Hope you have a great weekend,

 Grace and Peace
