Update

Phys. Ed.
The Roar of the Rings is taking place in our city this week (Dec. 2-10). This tournament is the Olympic Trials for both men and women and is taking place at the Canadian Tire Centre. This is such an exciting event because the winners will represent Canada at the Olympics this winter. We have now started our own class bonspiel! We had 2 games today and will continue on with the round robin later this week.

So, in the spirit of what is happening in our city, we are learning about the sport of Curling. We have learned about the specific vocabulary, studied the playing surface (curling sheet) and talked about how points are scored (rocks closest to the target in the house). 

Math
We are now going to explore the measurement of time. We will work with clocks and have a major focus on elapsed time. Students will be solving problems of elapsed time by finding the difference between a specific start and end time.
