Greetings! We cannot believe that we are into our third term already! The Grade 3s have been working hard since returning from March break. They also had a great week of carnival activities leading up to the break. We had a great time at the Rath Centre swimming and watching hockey. We also had a lot of laughs during the Lego Movie... and a lot of popcorn. :)
Grade 3s had a great experience at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. They really enjoyed seeing the Maud Lewis exhibit and were amazed that they managed to fit Maud Lewis' real, little house inside the gallery. They also enjoyed seeing their favourite Maudie pieces as well as some paintings they had never seen. The students were inspired by the Mi'kmaq Art exhibit by Jordan Bennett. We really loved how he blended traditional with modern. He also used amazingly bright colours.
We are looking forward to Spring. Soon, we will be starting our units in Soil and Plant Growth so we will be starting some seedlings in our classroom. We hope to grow a variety, from medicines to food. This will connect nicely with our discussions about Netukulimk and sustainability. Our young people are passionate about Wskitqumu, our Mother Earth, so it's important that they learn about their role and responsibilities to keep her healthy. Anyone that has a green thumb and knowledge about gardening is welcome to come help. Over and Out!
