Grade 4 March 2020 Newsletter
We hope that this newsletter finds you well. It is hard to believe that yet another month has passed by and that term two is almost over. February was an active month for all the students as we practiced hard for our class Choric Speech for the Speech Arts Festival as well all those who participated in the solo poetry and bible readings. We have been crunching the numbers hard for our multiplication unit and used our problem solving skills to answer word problems. We also went to the Aquarium to experience some Biomes first hand and now the students are busy at work making a Biome board game. Grade 4 students also visited the Fraser Discovery Centre to gain knowledge about the Fraser River and its history with trade. They experienced what a trading post would have been life and how unfair trade was between European settlers and First nations peoples.
The season of Lent is underway. It is a time of preparation for the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. We will be discussing the importance of Lent as a time for prayer, reflection and renewal of our baptismal vows and sacrifice. The students are encouraged to pray the Stations of the Cross and pray for themselves, their families and others in the world.
Upcoming dates to add to your calendars:
- March 5 Snow Shoeing
- March 12 Second Term Reports
- March 13 Noon dismissal – last day before Spring Break

February Grade 4 Newsletter
We hope that this newsletter finds you all well. February is busy month for our grade 4 students, but they are up for the challenge!!
We continue to learn about the First Nations culture. We will be also learning about the West Coast First Nations Peoples and other Aboriginal peoples in British Columbia. Again, we will examine their ways of life. We will look at food, clothing, shelter, transportation, government and religious beliefs. Students are working on a Passport as they learn about new things.
Students are working on finishing their Menu’s for their own Coast Salish Restaurants.
As part of our science unit on Biomes, the students will be attending the Wet Lab workshop on February 20th, 2019 at the Vancouver Aquarium. The students will learn about animal adaptations, local marine ecosystems, and about the complex issues of marine debris. As a conclusion to our Biomes unit, students will be creating a Biomes Board Game.
Students are continuing learning their times tables and how to apply these skills to different questions. We will be using these skills when we dive into Division soon. Students are encouraged to practice their multiplication. www.multiplication.com offers auto scored tests and free games.
