Welcome back! Please remember to bundle up. Students have been inside at recess over the past few days due to the cold weather. Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate soon and we will be able to enjoy our new playground.
We will be going skating Wednesday afternoon (weather permitting) from 12:20-1:20. Students require a helmet and skates. If you child does not own either please let me know and I can make arrangements.
French - Most writing pieces have been corrected and will sent home today to be viewed and signed. Please ensure that you child returns to school so they can be placed in their portfolios. The grades 6 and 7 students will explore and commence an informative draft writing piece, whilst the grade 8 students will be continue with a narrative writing piece either about a tale/legend or an adventure. As always, writing traits continue to be taught throughout as well as grammar, verbs, conventions, homophones, guided reading, etc.
Math - Decimal numbers (understanding place value less than 1000, multiplying, and dividing) will be our unit of study. We will be reviewing the place value component (up to 1 millionth i.e. 1/1 000 000) this week. Additional work and remaining homework will be sent home to be completed. Please let me know if you wish to have any additional work for your child to complete at home. Refer for my "web link" for numerous math websites to practice at home.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact me at the school. I will respond promptly via telephone. Let's have a great week at GG!
