We've Gone Buggy!

That's what happens when 20 students start researching all about bugs! We have been up to our elbows in glue and newsprint but we all think it was worth it! This is the display right across from the gym!

Mrs, Chapman's class also made bugs. Ours are on the bottom. Here are some closer views!

This week we also finished reading "The Incredible Journey" by Sheila Burnford. We enjoyed some popcorn with the movie "Homeward Bound" which was based on the book. We certainly enjoyed both! We recommend you read the book if you haven't!
Finally we finished off our Father's Day craft. We read the aboriginal creation story retold by David McLimans called "Big Turtle". We painted yogurt cups with acrylic paint. Next planted onion seeds or grass seeds and waited a long time for them to grow. Today we added the head and feet to make it look like a turtle. We thought it looked pretty neat. Some of us did have trouble getting the feet to stick though!

Next week we are having our Care Home Concert here at the school. If you are in the neighbourhood....
We would love to see you!
