Blind Scavenger Hunt

A blind scavenger hunt….there was a list of 10 items found in nature but students were not given the list. They collected a variety of natural materials found on our school field. Afterwards students excitedly anticipated whether they had collected an item from the list as the 10 items were revealed. This was a fun way to have students notice and name the beautiful things that surrounds us right on our own field.

Tinker Tales Part 2

The Three Billy Goats Gruff is our second fairy tale in the Tinker Tales Sessions. Students tinkered with different tray of materials to create a way for the goats to cross the river. There was a wide variety of ideas from warp pipes to catapults to stepping stones to boats. Each students created their own unique invention.

Butterflies Arrived

Our butterflies have arrived! We are harvesting ‘Painted Lady’ Butterflies. They are a colourful butterfly native to our area. They live for about 1 year from egg to death. The small caterpillars will soon be big, fat caterpillars – just like in Eric Carle’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Today we were out in our community. The first stop on our exploration of Mill Bay Centre was the library. Here we enjoyed a few stories before browsing the shelves for an interesting book to read with a friend. The second stop was to refuel by eating our lunch and stretching our legs at the park. The third stop was a behind-the-scene tour of Thrifty Foods. Here we watched as bread was cut, meat was packed and icing roses were created. The final stop was at Brentwood College. Here we meet our Grade 10 Literature Buddies to exchange books after playing on the field. It was a fabulous day spending time enjoying the places in our community.
