G6 ESL 4-8 April, 2016

What is happening in G6 ESL?

Welcome back to school and the final quarter of your grade 6 year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and you are ready for the bustling and busy term ahead.

The next two weeks will be spent completing projects you started before the holiday- Future Forecast in Eng & SS, and the Electrical Circuit Investigation in Science. Following that will be an interdisciplinary project for the Relationships Unit. This will include work from Math, Science English and SS. There will be more info about that later. For now, enjoy being back at school and the week ahead.

The second part of the GW Challenge will begin with an individual conference on a book. The teachers modeled what this conference would look and sound like before the break.
