Our Kindergarten classes have had the Grade 6 babysitter class getting practical experience working with them. The Grade 6 class has been coming down to SES on Wednesdays to play games, read stories and make crafts with our students. Both the Grade 6 class and our Kindergarten students have really been enjoying learning from each other.
Mrs. Lotoski’s TA class, from Wm. E Hay, joined Mrs. Thorne’s Kindergarten class to make Christmas Angels. The older students painted the hands and feet of our Kindergarten students to create this Christmas craft. They spent some time reading stories to the children and the Kindergarten class sang one of their Christmas songs to their older friends. Both classes had a lot of fun.
Students in Mr. Howell’s Grade 5 class have spent the last three weeks building robots. It was a culminating activity for their two units on Magnetism and Electricity and Electrical Mechanisms. The students constructed circuits that caused their robot eyes to illuminate, made a fan spin, and caused a bell or buzzer to sound off. They also motorized their robots by attaching it to a remote controlled vehicle. To celebrate finishing their robots, the students had robot races down the hallway. It was an exciting finish for their project.
Our first Christmas concert was held on the evening of Dec. 9 and was a great success. We are now looking forward to the Kindergarten’s concert which is tonight in the PAC at 6:30. The remaining concert dates are listed below. Remember that there will be a bake sale at the beginning of all the concerts to help support our school councils.
