Sound Science Workshop tmrw!

Vancouver Maritime Museum Field Trip

Next week, on April 12th, the students are invited to attend the Maritime Museum field trip.  The students will learn what it takes to be a successful explorer.  They will learn about the early explorers of the Canadian Northwest Passage through the Arctic.  They will also learn about Canada’s early role in policing the Arctic and servicing the communities living there. This program will take place on board and around the RCMP vessel St. Roch, which is located inside the Museum.  The students will be touring the ship to learn what life was like on board a ship traveling in the Arctic waters and learn about the different parts of the ship.

Trained education volunteers lead small groups of students through hands- on and participatory activities designed to stimulate creative and critical thinking.

Please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed on the day of the field trip in the school P.E. sweat suit and running shoes, as there will be a climbing activity involved in this program.

April Newsletter

Spring is Here!

April Newsletter from Grade 4

Dear Parents,

We hope that this newsletter finds you well. It is hard to believe that we are beginning term three. Where has the time gone? Thank you for attending the Student-led Conferences. We hope that you enjoyed sharing all of your child’s successes’ The Grade 4 students have all worked hard during the first and second terms and now the last term awaits them. Again we would like to thank you for your support in your child’s learning.

Language Arts:

This term we will be completing the novel, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing written by Judy Blume. The students focus on their reading powers while reading this novel. These reading strategies are making connections, asking and answering questions, visualizing, making inferences and transformations. The students also focus on reading fluency by ensuring that they read with expression, be aware of the pace, volume and sound out words they do not recognize. They also learn new vocabulary words to incorporate into their writing activities.

Social Studies

Now that we have finished studying the First Nations Peoples we will be investigating the early exploration of the Canadian Arctic. We will also be studying the first Canadian explorers and their impact on the Aboriginal Peoples. Students are encouraged to go to their local public libraries and find information about Canadian explorers.


Just a reminder that we are still in the Lenten season and we hope that our students are following their Lenten promises. It continues to be a time of prayer, reflection, fasting, and penance.


Please remember to keep signing your child’s agenda.
