Gator Bites: Week of February 25th

Good Evening Gators!

Despite the snow interruptions, we have been keeping busy with our learning this week.  

Our Grade 3, 4 and 5 students had the opportunity to further develop their skills and strategies for scientific inquiry through hands-on activities provided byScientists in the School.  

The Grade 3s built bridges that could hold several textbooks to enhance their learning about strong and stable structures.  The Grade 4s had an opportunity to experience becoming a physicist and discovering how pulleys and gears can make work easier. They constructed gear trains and identified gears used in our daily lives. They built and designed pulley systems to change an applied force. The best part was being a part of a human pulley and figuring out how to move something bigger than themselves. The Grade 5s took part in activities titles ‘May the Force be with you’ where they deepened their understanding of forces acting on structures.  Thank you Ms. McKenna for organizing this great learning opportunity. They will be back later in March to work with our Grade 1 and 2s.


Sr. Basketball - Both the senior boys and girls basketball teams continue to work hard every week as they continue their regular season. Practices are throughout the week, both before school and during nutrition breaks. All players and coaches are putting in great effort to improve the teams, and everyone is having fun along the way! Thank you Mr. Baker and Mr. Kryzanowski for all your time and efforts coaching. Go Gators!

Mountsberg Field trip -  On Tuesday February 26th all of our grade 1, 2 and 3 students enjoyed an afternoon at Mountsberg Conservation Area's Maple Town!  Students took a wagon ride through the forest to the pavilion at Maple Town, where they then enjoyed a pancake lunch. After lunch, students learned about how to tap maple trees for sap, and how to turn it into maple syrup.  We finished off the afternoon with a taste of fresh syrup! Yum!

Last Friday, all of our students participated in helping to create a school mural by drawing a self-portrait during our Gator House activities.  Here is our mural so far! Students who were absent, or did not complete a self-portrait, are encouraged to visit Ms. Gabriel & Ms. Swift in rooms 5 & 6 to get a template to add their picture to the mural.  Thank you Ms. Gabriel & Ms. Swift for organizing our Gator Houses and helping us remember the importance of kindness and friendship with this amazing mural.

Reminders:

March 4th - please join us for School Council at 6:30 pm in the Learning Commons

March  11 - 15 - Spring Break

Good Evening Gator Families!

On Tuesday January 22nd,  Grade 1 and 2 students from Ms. Gabriel and Ms. Swift’s classes engaged in some hands-on outdoor learning!  Our students worked collaboratively with each other to gain a deeper understanding of mapping and navigational skills by participating in a scavenger hunt. They solved clues to find the locations of treasure tubes and completed challenges such as reading a thermometer or observing their surroundings.

Here is what students are sharing about learning outdoors:

“I learned temperature today. We did a treasure hunt for treasure tubes with clues inside.” -Brynlee

“It is fun. You get to run around. You get to learn.” -Vivian

Thank you to Ms. Swift and Ms. Gabriel for organising this fun outdoor learning experience!




On Wednesday January 23rd, our Kindergarten (K2) class hosted a kindergarten team from Anne J MacArthur to participate in an Outdoor Education Project. They walked to the forest and noticed and named many things on their way, such as the bare trees, animals and nests. While in the forest the children decided to play in the snow and build walls, snowmen, and statues, making observations and new connections while engaging with different classmates. They wondered how to build a stronger community in their classroom in the outdoors.  Thank you to Ms. Hunt and Ms. Lowry for organizing this fun outdoor learning opportunity!



            Family Literacy Day on January 27th -  TAKE 20 minutes together to make learning part of your every day. This TAKE 20 document (LINK) is one of the resources on the website. Barbara Reid has created 20 different ideas of ways to engage in literacy-related activities as a family. Please visit the Family Literacy Day website for resources, ideas and prepared downloads:  https://abclifeliteracy.ca/family-literacy

Reminders:

Winter is here! Please ensure your child is dressed for outdoor activities each day - winter boots, snow pants and jackets, scarves, mitts & hat.  It is always helpful to keep an extra pair of socks or other clothing at school / in their backpack during this time in case students get wet outdoors.

Good Evening Gator Families!

This week Mr. Goral’s class participated in some learning at Milton District with our I-Think Team (Integrative Thinking). Here is what some of the students had to say:

From January 15 -17, Mr. Goral’s Grade 7/8 gifted class traveled to Milton District High School to participate in fun, enriching math activities, focusing on linear equations to further our understanding of the concept. We experimented with Pro-Pro charts, programming games in Desmos, and other math challenges that pushed our thinking. We enjoyed our time in the Shift room, and believe that all the other students at the school should get to try out learning this way.

“It makes it interesting to see math from a different view”-Morgan

“It was amazing and fun and awesome and cool”-Kurt

“It was really amazing to get to use these skills and learn different math skills”-Vanessa

“The chairs and stuff were cool”-Fraser                                                                                             

“It was a really cool learning environment”-Lucas


                                                                                            
We had our Senior Boys and Girls Basketball tryouts as well as our Boys Junior Volleyball Practices begin this week.  We are looking forward to a great season!! Thank you to our hard working coaches, Mr. Kryzanowski, Mr. Baker, Ms. Robb, Mr.Goral, Mr. Aidoo and Ms. Hunt. Go Gators!

At Sam Sherratt we have our after School Literacy Group for Grades 4-6 start this week.

Wednesday night after school we had 20 eager and willing participants in this year’s after school group. Our first session was focused on setting goals, norms and expectations for our learning. Students were a part of the planning... and the survey says... we want to improve our handwriting, creative writing, reading skills, etc. We plan to honour student voice and make this program engaging for our participants. Next week we look forward to the Primary program starting on Tuesday night! Thank you to the hard work and commitment of our teachers: Ms. Neate, Ms. McKenna and Ms. Belford.

Thank you to the parents who came out this week to our Parent Council! We look forward to our next meeting on Monday, February 4th, 2019 at 6:30pm in our Learning Commons.

Students in K-2 (Ms. Hunt/Ms. Lowry), 2/3 (Ms. McKenna), and the Grade 3s of 3/4 (Mrs. Wheeler) had a special guest presenter in their classes today. A representative from Pizza Nova came in to discuss the ingredients involved in making pizza as well as an interactive step-by-step instructions of how to get the dough ready. Students had the opportunity to flatten, flip, and even toss their dough in the air. As a treat, everyone also received a slice of pizza and a goody bag!  Thank you Ms. Lowry for organizing this fun learning experience for our Primary Students. 

Junior Vex Robotics is continuing Fridays after school (pick up at 5:00 pm).  They are practicing for an upcoming tournament in February. Thank you Ms. Paulson and Mr. Costello for all you great work with our students.

Wanted:  We are looking for Occasional / Supply Lunchroom Supervisors for the 2nd Nutrition Break (12:50 - 1:40 pm).  If interested please contact the school office 905-878-1556.
