Ms. Nichols’ class had to use their best geometry, problem solving, and motor skills to bounce a light from their classroom all the way down the hall to the office. It took a few tries, and they decided that more mirrors made the job WAAAAY harder, but eventually they succeeded by simplifying the problem. Next week, they’ll try to make the complicated version work again.

Langley Environmental Partners visited Ms. Hall’s class this week, everyone learned about Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. They found out that our favourite fleece jackets are often made from recycled pop bottles (washed out, of course). They also learned about litterless lunches, where snacks and such are packed in reusable bags or containers, so they can help the planet and help keep our schoolyard tidier at the same time!

Ms. Staples’ grade 6 Social Studies students are learning about Canada’s Parliament. They’ve learned about the Speaker, parties, the Prime Minister, and the Sargeant-at-Arms. Now they’re making dioramas of the Chamber, to get a better feel for the place.

So much art!
