16th Edition of
The K/1 Class
Monday this week was a holiday
because of Remembrance Day so there was no school.
Tuesday we wrote about our
favourite local animal in our journals, had our Oral Language groups and
enjoyed learning about dinosaurs with a science group “Let’s Talk Science” from
the University of Victoria.
Wednesday we had Quentin visit the class to share a
poem and create an owl craft, we also learned about what a habitat is and had a
senses scavenger hunt out in nature.
On Thursday we had Whole School Meeting and Mina
and Sylvio presented their artwork. We finished off our animal stories with
help from our big buddies and visited the bog to explore nature. The kids were
thrilled to find the bog full of water after all the rain! What a difference
from last week. As you will notice, many children got wet while playing in the
water. Please make sure your child has a spare set of clothes at school and if
items were lent out, please wash and return them so we can have them when
We have also started learning a song (“Santa Bring
Me Snow”) and dance to perform at our Christmas Concert in December. The kids
are eager to learn the moves!
Ms. Klare is now teaching most of the day. Kaz and
Mrs. Van Riel are supervising and assisting in her lessons. Ms. Klare is doing
a great job and the children are always eager to hear about what she will teach
