School of Rock

Last Month we had school of rock. Our theme this year was music from Canadian artists. This year in back of the singers and musicians we had a giant Canadian flag from the top of the parliament. We were going to rock outside but because of the weather we had to be inside, but it was still really awesome. We got a letter from the Governor General witch is pretty cool. At the end we sang a rock version of Oh Canada. Can't wait till the next school of rock!

On May 21, our class went to MacSkimming, it was awesomely fantastic! In the morning we learned how to read a map. We went on a sort of a treasure hunt looking for triangles with two letters on them using a map and 17 acres of field and trees! Later that morning we built shelters out of; one tarp, one gigantic rope and three smaller ropes.

In the afternoon we learned about animals, camouflage and animals strategy of defending themselves. We touched animals skins and played the two funnest games ever.

One game we played was Predator, Prey, it was so awesome to be able to run around the forest chasing people and being chased. There were three types of animals; carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. The carnivores had 2 lives, the omnivores had 3 lives and the herbivores had 5 lives.
Another game we played was called Camouflage  There was a person who was a wolf in a hula hoop, and that person would close there eyes and count to 15, and you had to go as a snow shoe hare, and hide. then the wolf opened their eyes and would look around. If they found you, you walk and stand beside the hoop to go to Snow Shoe Hare Heaven.

Despite all the fun, there was one terrifying thing...(dun dun dun) the massive swarms of ankle devouring mosquitoes, but it was sooo worth it!

Scientists in the Schools

The grade fours and fives have been working on a science unit with Scientists in the Schools. On Tuesday the grade 5's did some really cool experiments on matter. First we looked at the periodic table. Next We mixed some things like baking soda and vinegar and we got some cool chemical reactions like an exothermic reaction.

On Thursday the grade fours were doing a lot of stuff about gears and pulleys. We made some really cool and long gear trains and we even tried to pull Owen on a Crazy Carpet with and without a mechanical advantage.

The flying canoe

The school watched a puppet show yesterday . The stories where about French Canadians, and sometimes they even spoke french!

Le Loup Garou
a Loup Garou it will get you
If you get a scrape you won't be late
To your human state
You'll celebrate
