Your child is coming home with two (2) end-of-year field trip forms. The white form is a low-risk participation form. The blue form is to indicate whether your child will be attending the pool and movies ($12.00) or the additional option of including a snack pack at the movies (an extra $5.50). Both forms are due back before Friday, June 8th. As stated on the form, your children will be required to bring a bagged lunch vs. ordering online. Also, the students will not have access to a microwave on this day.
Other important forms I am looking for is the green slip indicating permission to walk to the Stratford town hall for our “Water Day” field trip, Friday, May 18th. If you have not already done so, please also send in the pink form for next year’s school supplies which indicates the method of payment you have chosen (cash, cheque or on-line).
In Math, we will be having a test on Area & Perimeter on Wednesday. I sent home homework that your child should be able to do independently. The first page focuses on Area and Perimeter and the remainder of the homework focuses on previous outcomes we have learned so far this year, such as estimation. We will be starting a new unit on Patterns & Relations (PR1 & 2) on Thursday.
Students in 5B will be presenting their Social Studies triptychs to me this week, as well as to Grade 4 students. We are also working hard on our Descriptive Reports in Writer’s Workshop. I hope you have learned a few things about Nubia over the past few weeks, yourselves!
In Science, we are continuing to learn about the properties of matter, as well as physical/chemical and reversible/non-reversible changes.
I will be out Wednesday morning as I will be in Department meetings. I am also out all day Thursday, as I have a funeral to attend in O’Leary. Ms. Simms (who has been in for me before) will be in again, on both days.
Finally, if you haven’t already done so, and you have a minute to complete the parent survey which was sent out via Class Dojo, we would really benefit from hearing your input. Thank you to those who completed it.
Have a great week!
