Our Week in Review by Student Journalist - Bartek B.

This week we worked a lot on our Famous Person reports. We are performing as our person at a Wax Museum on February 2nd. In Social Studies we are reading a play called -The American Revolution. Mrs. Archambeau has also been reading a new read aloud called - 3 Times Lucky. It has been good. Because of the weather, we have been having recess inside. So, we are trying to finish the movie Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets. In math we are learning a lot about fractions, mixed numbers and improper fractions. In art we have been print- making and in music we have been studying for the test we took today. In P.E. we are practicing our hockey unit and on Friday we played a game.

So you can say this week was fun!
