With the new semester, the Grade 8s have swapped some teachers for the second half of the year. We’re reading and creating short stories in English and finished a writing assessment a few weeks ago. Dividing and multiplying fractions as well as work on perimeter and area are the topics in Math. In Social Studies the topics are information about Canada as well as learning about Dictators. The water cycle and a unit on cells including tissues and organs is the information we’re soaking up in Science. And in PE we’ve been hacking away with some floor hockey and some mat or dodgeball. Lastly, drafting and cooking desserts in PAA and scratch art in Arts Ed finish off our list of work. Thanks to the students from Grade 8 who helped with our newsletter item.
