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 continuing with Adrienne Gear’s Writing Power alongside a poetry unit where we will explore various forms of this writing style.

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.

Science Workshops

Hello Parents,

Here is some more information about the Science workshops that are happening this month.

Sounds Like Fun- April 6th at 12:30

This workshop is provided by High Touch- High Tech scientists.  This workshop will engage students in learning about the properties of sound.  Sound is a form of energy!  Hands on activities and discussion periods will be provided.

The Power of Light- April 20th at 12:30

This will be an extension of the Sound energy workshop.  The properties of Light will be explored through experiments and hands on activities with the High Touch scientists.  Students will learn that energy can be transformed.

Vancouver Maritime Museum Field Trip

On April 19th, the students are invited to attend the Maritime Museum field trip.  The students will learn what it takes to be a successful Arctic 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 in the Canadian Arctic. 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.
