Grade 4

The grades 4-6 went on their first field trip of the school year to Noggins Counter Farm on September 28th. Everyone enjoyed their time picking fresh apples, going on a wagon ride, getting lost in the corn maze and playing on their new play structures.  

We participated in the First National Orange shirt day. We honoured our Residential School Survivors and the ones that didn’t. We made posters and orange medicine ties. We also made Magit Dolls to honour Elder Magit Poulette’s Story.

October is Mi'kmaq History Month. We will be learning about Treaty Education, and the 92 calls of actions from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). The TRC calls to action addresses the ongoing impact of residential schools on survivors and their families.  

** Technology: We will be using Chromebook to learn computer skills like, how to check and send an email, signing into our google classroom and apps that we will be using. Most importantly, how to stay safe online. If your child has a Chromebook at home can you please have them bring them to class.

Kwe’

Welcome back everyone.  I hope everyone enjoyed their summer break.  I am looking forward to a regular school year.  (We are almost there).  We are still wearing masks AND social distancing at the school till we reach Phase 5 which is expected on September 15th.  Let’s all do our parts so we can move forward to Phase 5.  With this comes some good changes as our Music, Mi’kmaq & P.E. classes will be held in their designated classrooms now and most excitingly, FIELD TRIPS will come BACK.  Yah!

Grade four is a big Change for them.  They are now the new kids on the block with the big kids upstairs and they get their own lockers.  (This is a big thing for them).

September is always a busy month with getting to know each other, going over classroom rules, routine and expectations, and the biggest part is literacy & math assessments.

In ELA, we will be working on personal narrative writing.  In Math, we will be learning to read, write and represent numbers to 10,000.  I Health, we will be learning about healthy relationships and the Growth Mindset.

Every month we send out a LSK Newsletter & Calendar with important dates and information.

I hope everyone has a great 2021-2022 school year!

Attached is the PDF copy of the school supply list for grade four!!  See you in September!!

Kwe, 

May or May not!

We are back to online learning for two weeks. We May or may not be online all of May! However, we are strong and resilient and we will get through this because we are in this together. 

For Mother Earth Day, we made seed bombs and bird feeders. We finally had the chance to check out our newly built walking trail behind our school. It’s a really nice trail. We picked up trash that was left behind and talked about the importance of respecting Mother Earth. We put up our bird feeders and threw our seed bombs around the school.  We sure hope to see beautiful wild flowers growing soon! 

Our class plants are taking off, we are hoping we can plant them in our garden soon as it is safe to do so!

We would like to wish our Mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day on May 9th. Kiju’ Na’kwekm!
