GRADE ONE: In Literacy, Grade Ones have been learning about the characteristics of ‘Long Ago and Far Away Tales’. They have learned about opinions/facts and shared examples of each. Students viewed a wide variety of movie posters and expressed their opinions/reasons for their thinking. Upon completion, they worked on creating their very own movie posters, based on fairy tales, paying attention to characters, setting, colouring, and a visible title.
In Music class, students were learning about various genres of music while experienc-ing the joy of listening to and identifying rhythm, beat, and the musical instruments they heard. Genres such as: Rock, R&B, Jazz, Classical, and Rap were a few that were explored. Students actively participated in an interactive Nearpod activity for engagement and to show their understanding.
This sure has been a “Year to Remember”! Grade 6 students compiled a collection of poems in appreciation of the year that we have endured. The collection consists of a variety of literary devices and three poetic forms (Tanka, Shakespearean Sonnet, and Free Verse).
