Grade 5

Week of January 14 – 18

Hi Grade 5 Families!

This week, we dove right back into the swing of things! We made goals for the new year, started Board Game Tuesdays and did fun Math Centres to practice and apply our knowledge and skills! Check out the ClassDojo for some pictures and videos!

Our featured image this week is a class photo with a special guest this week, Vancouver-Based Filmmaker, Kat Jayme. Grade 5, 6 & & 7’s were lucky to view her recent documentary-film “Finding Big Country”. A film about Kat searching for her childhood hero, former NBA player, Bryant “Big Country” Reeves from the former Vancouver Grizzlies team. It was a great film and we even got to ask her questions afterwards!
