Today was build a fort and zoom in it day. All the staff and students made a fort - some were very creative!!! The Grade 5 teacher even made a fort outside and zoomed in the rain!! The Grade 3 class presented their Poetry Slam from their forts. What a way to end the week.
Make a Fort and Zoom in it Day
The Grade 6's did a fanatastic job leading the whole school through our first virtual assembly to celebrate Earth Day. The students wore their dress uniform and logged in as a united front. There were 100 students who attended and it was fun scrolling through all the screens to see everyone. The children were challenged with a EARTH DAY BINGO to complete with their family!
Story Time at SBS
Our librarian meets with our students, via zoom, at the end of each day and reads two stories. What a delightful treat to end our busy day by sharing literature.
April Fools Day 2020
Eventhough the students are learning remotely from home, they still have their sense of humour. The grade one students played a prank on their teacher and showed up to their zoom circle all wearing moustaches!! What a fun way to start the month of April!
Virtual Staff Meeting
Today for the first time, we held a "virtual" staff meeting using ZOOM. SBS is closed due to the COVID-19 and offering on line learning to our students. Definitely a different start to term three.
Geography Challenge 2020
A highlight of the Spring Term at Sunnybrook is the Annual SBS Geography Challenge, which will take place in April. Before the break we gather all our students from Grades Four, Five and Six to participate in the qualifying round.
Our geographers had great results, and we actually did not have to go to a tie breaker. In the end, Grant/GR 4, Heidi/GR 5 and Jack/GR 6 are our finalists for the big inter school Geography Challenge. Congratualtions to all of you!
Student Led Conferences Exhibition 2020
Today was a special day in the school. Student Led Conferences offer a meaningful and powerful way for parents to learn about their children's progress. Beginning in JK students and parents sit together for up to an hour. During this time the students share their learning in all areas of the curriculum. This includes their regular studio work such as math, language and Units of Inquiry. They also demonstrate their learning in French, Music and Phys Ed during their conference.
During the SLC day, our Grade Six class holds it's PYP Exhibition, "THE CHANGING MIND". This is always a wonderful days in the school, a true celebration of student learning.
Chocolate Bark Event 2020
The SPA put together a wonderful Valentine's Event. Chef, Julie Montgomery, came in and made chocolate bark and bon bons with many families. The students were able to decorate the bark with lots of toppings to take home. While the bark was setting, the families had an oppourtunity to watch chef Julie Montgomery win the Halloween Baking Contest. It was a sweet way to spend time on Saturday afternoon.
