Grade 5

Week of November 12 – 16

Hi Grade 5 Families!

We had a wonderful Remembrance Day Celebration this Friday, complete with a bagpipes and a trumpet (that was played by Mr. Kirkham’s dad) to add to our assembly! We learned a lot about what it means to wear a poppy and how we can continue to pray for those in war-torn countries.

Our featured image this week is some of the childrens’ Remembrance Day Art. We looked at the different types of poppies around the world and they each created one quarter of a poppy. Each style is different and unique; and when put together celebrates the diversity of our class and world!
