Grade 5

Week of November 26 – 30

Hi Grade 5 Families!

We had a wonderful visit from a Brass Trilogy last week! The trio were long time musicians for the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO) and they were incredibly entertaining! You can see some pictures and videos on ClassDojo!

We’re looking forward to a special visitor this week during our PE classes; a dance instructor! We will be learning a hip hop dance routine!

Our featured image this week is from our Grade 5 Art Gallery. We had completed our Self-Portraits and created a space similar to an Art Gallery! Everyone had the opportunity to view, compliment and ask questions about each other’s work! Check out ClassDojo for some photos!
