Happy 2018 Grade 6 Families!

We are off to a fantastic start to 2018! The students working diligently and have demonstrated great flexibility as they adjust to the growing expectations of grade six.
This first month we had a blast sending our pop bottle rockets very high in the air with the force of air pressure. We also were excellent mentors with several of the younger students coding the dash robots with intercurricular problem solving activities!

Both the Girl's Volleyball team and Boy's Basketball team placed very well in their tournaments and are off to the quarterfinals! Team Poseidon (our FLL team) had a fantastic experience at the Provincials and won the Research Award for their solution to the Hydrodynamic innovation. They also have been invited to the Ontario Innovation Celebration in later February! Way to go Grade 6's!!!!!

Classroom Activities

Learning In and Outside of the Classroom!
Saturday, February 10th, 2018

Students are expected to do their very best at all times and use class time efficiently. Therefore they are expected to accomplish a lot during class! Those students who we find are slipping behind will bring work home. It is recommended that all grade 6 students spend not more than 60 minutes on homework daily. This can be accomplished by reading for fun, self-discovery and enrichment, writing and reviewing concepts from all subject areas as well as self-directed discovery through the ARTs.

Learning takes many formats in grade 6 which included 3 fantastic days of skiing the slopes , our band symposium, visits by the Young Singers Chorus and our interactive "Learn by the seat of your pants National Geographic Google HangOuts" In which we had camera spots to ask questions about our environment with the experts, engineers, and international advocates and how we can make a difference!

Our Fantastic Learn by the Seat of your Pants Google Hangout Broadcasts!

All the MATHS!

We are well into our math program. Along with several ministry and board resources the students are prepared for future textbook work with the Nelson and Pearson programs. Much of math is learned using problem-based learning. Concepts and skills are taught in 2-4 week periods which include daily practice work booklets or a specific research/ tasks / games- activity. At times math homework is assigned to review current lessons and is taken up the following day for consolidation. Please ensure that all homework is returned daily and organized and stored in backpacks.

Topics this them: Positive Growth mindset with all MATHS, Patterning and Algebra, Measurement, Geometry 2D and 3D, Working on fluidity and automaticity with numbers using Daily Number talks, Speedway Math, and Problem Solving across all strands utilizing and developing various efficient strategies.
