Grade 1

Week of Jan 23 – 27

Hello Grade One Families!

Last week, the children learned about Vincent Van Gogh. They learned about Van Gogh’s technique of using colours to communicate feelings and ideas. The Grade One’s made their very own paintings, choosing colours that depicted their feelings! Last week our buddies learned about simple machines and created catapults. Together during buddy activity, they launched mini marshmallows across the Grade 5 classroom, and they even got to take the catapults home! We also had 3 winners in assembly on the big wheel spin! Congratulations to Micah, Olivia C. and Belle!
