Let's dance!

This morning in music class, the PS and MS danced. The class was divided in groups that each represented a part of a musical piece. Each time that particular part would be heard, the assigned group would dance along! Some were giants, some were fairies and had scarves.

Lots of fun! Merci beaucoup!

Qui est-ce? historique

The CM1 and CM2 created a game, a "Qui est-ce?" historique under the direction of Douglas. They did research on historical characters and created cards. After all this work, they played their game!

One of the other teachers of the school even came to play the game! It was a lot of fun!

Presentation on oysters with Nonesuch Oysters

The CE1 and CE2 were very excited to welcome Abigail Carroll and Alex Krieckhaus from Nonesuch Oysters to their classroom for a presentation.

Abigail talked about the oysters, their habitat, what they feed on, predators...and the students were mesmerized. They asked very good questions like what happens if oysters filter too much polluted water? Can you find pearls in oysters?

They also got to see and touch live crabs, mussels that are predators to oysters and learn how they attack and eat them.

And the...saving the best for last, the TASTING of oysters for the adventurous souls!

Experimenting with water

The PS and MS have been studying water, reading books about water (oceans, rivers, etc). This morning, they experimented with water in the playground.

One group was reading books.

Another group was playing with objects in water.

And another group had to fill a bucket with water using different utensils (laddle, drainer, spoon, bottle cap...).

It was so much fun!
