3B Assembly: Stephanie’s Ponytail

The 3B Assembly

This week, 3B class had the exciting opportunity to host an assembly. The students reenacted one of their favourite classroom stories, Stephanie’s Ponytail by Robert Munsch.

The 3B students made connections between the events of Stephanie’s Ponytail and the school theme for the year:

 

In the story, Stephanie’s classmates make fun of her hairstyles but the very next day they are copying her! Stephanie is frustrated and tricks her classmates into shaving their heads.

Here are some important lessons we have learned from this story:

 

“I learned that we are all different people.”

 

 

“I learned that we shouldn’t be mean to others.”

 

 

“I learned that I should show kindness. If I like something someone has I should compliment them.”

Japanese Culture Day

March 22 was Japanese Culture Day! We had the opportunity to enjoy origami folding, top competitions, dress up, special assemblies, a potluck lunch, and aikido. Grade 3 even created some art to contribute to the celebratory day!

Thank you to the Japanese Department for organizing such a fantastic day.

 

 

Visiting Musician

Recently, musician/singer/songwriter Kathryn Claire visited the Elementary students to lead them in musical numbers and lessons in songwriting. The students enjoyed live music and learning about song writing.

The Grade 3 students had the exciting opportunity to compose a song of their own! Check it out:

 

 

 

 

Fun Day: Benchball Tournament

For our January 25th Fun Day, the Grade 3 and 4 classes merged together into teams for a friendly Benchball tournament in the gymnasium. Each team had the opportunity to work together and compete in two energetic and competitive heats.

Thank you Grades 3 & 4 for your excellent sportsmanship!
