Fun was the common theme of the day for our Halloween Spooktacular. Following Covid19 protocol students paraded their costumes for everyone to appreciate and enjoy.

Learning in ACTION

Real Life Mystery

This week the Grade 5/6 class finished their Evidence & Investigation/Classroom Chemistry unit with an interactive exam. Students had to complete different stations to try and solve the murder of Mr. Bearemy. Students looked at pH levels of different liquids, ink analysis, all while trying to put together the pieces from the crime scene. Students also got their first taste of PAT style questions. The class was very engaged in trying to figure out the case.
