Sorry, forgot to post this on Friday! A bit of a disjointed week this past week, with Parent Teacher interviews in the middle. It was good to connect with so many of you, and touch base about how things have been going this year. This week in Social Studies we began a unit on Canada. We will be learning the different provinces, and reading across Canada. And in Science, we began a unit on Matter. We all know the basics of solids, liquids and gases … but we are going to be getting into atoms and molecules, and all the ‘stuff’ of this world! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Dates to Remember:
Wednesday, November 23rd – Jersey Day
Friday, November 25th – Pro-d, no school
Wednesday, November 30th – Decorating Party
No spelling this week due to the short week.
(8) And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. (9)An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. (10) But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. (11) Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. (12) This will be a sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” (13) Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God, and saying, (14) “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.”
