Greetings 5D Community,
This week, students have been hard at work on their end of year assessments in math and literacy. With just three weeks left until the summer break, we are counting down the days to middle school.
5D are getting excited about their step up day which is happening all day Thursday. Students will shadow their Grade Six pen pal buddy for the day. They will follow their buddies timetable, attend all of their classes and eat together with the other middle school students in the cafeteria. It is sure to be a nervous, yet very exciting day for them all.
In addition to the ongoing assessment, in math, this week students have been inquiring into angles. We made our own protractors using our knowledge of regular 2D shapes. We complemented this work with hands-on geometry stations and building square meters with precision.
In literacy, we have been continuing to read novels in groups and write a recount of a significant transition in our lives. We will contrast this first-person writing with explanation writing in a passive voice next week.
In UOI this week, the boys and girls were separated for two periods so that students could learn some of the more specific details involved with growing up as a boy or girl. In 5D, students have also been working hard on identifying major transitions in their own lives.s. We have also had some lovely moments of sharing, with many students sharing baby photos and pictures of themselves growing up. We have a photo display of baby & toddler photos growing. It would be wonderful if all students could contribute a photo.
