The WonderFair is coming very soon!

Since before Christmas, EVERY kid in Grade 4 and 5 in both French and English has been working to design and perform an original science experiment.  That’s way over 100 EMJS students!

This Friday is the culmination of all of their efforts. That’s the “WonderFair”, a glorious day where all of the marvelous efforts by students (and staff) will be on display for the whole school community!  The gym will be packed full of kids showing off their science experiment display boards.

All of the classes will drop by during the day, and all parents are invited too. Do come, I think you’ll find it fun!  Former students from Monterey Middle School have been invited, as has special guest climate scientist and local MLA Dr. Andrew Weaver (who will visit in the afternoon block)

The WonderFair will be open this Friday, from 9:30 to 10:20, from 10:45 to 11:50 and from 1:00 to 2:00. Bring everyone you know – all ages are welcome!!

To whet your whistle, have a look at this mindmap.  Students were asked to brainstorm one word answers to the statement, “Science is…”.

WE INVITE YOU TO ADD YOUR IDEAS BY COMMENTING!

WHAT WOULD YOU ADD TO THE PHRASE…

“SCIENCE IS….”?

All week, the homework has continued to be…

…studying times facts 10-15 minutes a day, and preparing for our special Spanish word spelling test (Thanks to our newish student Irene for that fun list!).

We are nearly finished our 2nd term class novel, “Shiloh”.  As well as the above studying, the homework for tonight is to compare and contrast two of the main character in the book, Judd and Marty.  A Venn diagram worksheet was explained and sent home with students for this purpose. It’s due tomorrow (Thursday).

If parents are curious to see if their child is improving in her or his recall of times facts, they should check the clear pocket of the student’s agenda book.  The most recent tests were handed back marked on Monday, with a reference as to how that test compared to the one the class took about a week ago.  Almost everyone in the room improved! 🙂

Did you hear our class will be in the school production of the “Wizard of Oz”?  Ask your child what song we will be performing!

Finally, stay tuned for news about our EMJS “WonderFair” on Feb. 13th.  It’s built around exciting kid-made Science experiments, and every Fr. and Eng. class in grades four and five are participating.  Wowza!!
