- NO SCHOOL - on Friday, February 1
This week, we are finishing up our science unit about "The Seasons" and will soon be starting our next science unit about "Characteristics and Needs of Living Things" with a focus on Penguins. Our class made a mural for the hallway bulletin board showing the various ways that Manitoba animals survive the winter.
In math we have been working on measurement. We are learning to use measurement words like - shorter, longer, heavier, lighter, holds more or less, and finding out which surface covers more area. We have also been keeping track of Taco and Peanut - measuring their length and weight each month.
The whole school will be making two pottery pieces with clay over the next two months. The grade ones made pumpkin dishes last week. They will be taken to the pottery store to be fired and then back to school to be glazed, and then fired once again.
