What’s New in One and Two?

Week of October 1 – 5, 2012

*Reminders – NO SCHOOL next Monday, October 8 – Thanksgiving

                      - This week chapel will be on Friday instead of Wednesday


                                                                                                                           Thank you to all of the families who helped out with our Terry Fox Run donations.  Thank you too, to all of the parents who came along on our field trip to the Snake Pits.  We had perfect weather and caught lots of snakes!

Annabelle (in grade 2) heard a story on the radio (QX104) about a little girl named Maranda who is very ill.  Maranda lives in Regina with her mom and her sister and asked for people all over the world to send her pictures of rainbows.  Annabelle asked if our class could make some rainbows for her and we will be working on them this week and then sending them to Maranda along with our prayers.

FIELD TRIP to the MTYP                                                                                                   
We will be going on a field trip to the MTYP (Manitoba Theatre for Young People) at the Forks, to see “Where the Wild Things Are”.  This is an adaptation of the book by Maurice Sendak.  We will be going on Tuesday, October 16 in the afternoon.  A permission slip for this field trip will be coming home soon.

We are continuing the science unit about our senses.  We have matched sounds using “Egg Shakers”.  We will be trying out “Smelly Jars” and “Feely Socks”.  We will also be having taste tests and graphing our results.
