Kindergarten & Grade 1 News

The snowhill is gone! The snowhill is gone!

We are continuing to have a very busy K/1 classroom. We have been trying to go outside as much as possible to take in the sunshine and to learn about our surroundings.

We spent a class cleaning up our schoolyard with the Grade 6s. We had a great time making our school look beautiful. There was a LOT of garbage that had collected over the winter.

We have been learning about weather/climate in Science. Did you know that the big, poofy clouds are called Cumulus clouds? We even got to make our own clouds out of shaving cream and glue. But don’t worry, we know that’s not how real clouds feel!

The Ks are currently learning about measurement in Math. We are paying particular attention to using proper words to describe things: bigger, shorter, taller, wider, heavier, lighter, etc.

The 1s have been working on a Geometry unit. We have been learning how to describe shapes and what makes them similar or different. We have been playing Shapes Bingo and even went on a shape scavenger hunt!

Together, the K/1s have been learning about First Nations, Metis, and Inuit cultures. We’ve learned how important the shape of a ‘circle’ is to First Nations people. Ask us about it to find out!

We are going to the Children’s Festival on June 4 with Grade K-5. We are going to see an acrobatic show, as well as meet the author of the “Pete the Cat” series! We are very excited.

We hope that you all continue to have a wonderful Spring!
