Grade 5

Week of April 19th – 23rd

Hi Grade 5 Families,

Last week the children had been working hard at planning, designing and creating their Willy Wonka inspired candy and machine inventions. It’s been fascinating watching them in their process and I can’t wait to see their final product during our Charlie and Chocolate Factory celebration tomorrow.

On that note, please be sure to read below check regarding our celebration as well as some information about this week’s Student-Led Conferences. I will also be sending out an email.

Our featured image is from an outdoor activity. In pairs, the children rolled a dice and each number gave them a particular movement to do. It was a beautiful day that day and a what better way to get some exercise in!
