Fantastic Habitat Models

On August 31st year 4 made habitats models in science class. All of the class made one in small groups. The groups were: ‘the boys’ made a fox habitat, girls 1 made an octopus habitat, girls 2 made hippo habitat and group girls 3 a dolphin habitat.

We did the project to demonstrate that we know about habitats and because our science unit was about habitats.

Have you ever made a habitat model? If you did tell us about it in the comments. If no give it a try it is really fun.

Grids and Coordinates: New Math Unit

On Tuesday of the last week of September or the 27th of September 2016 in Year 4 class at Maple Bear Barra we started a new math unit.

Our new unit is called Transformational Geometry in the Math Makes Sense textbook. This unit is very easy for us after working so hard in math all year.

  • Thiago, João Pedro and Francisco
Will you study transformational geometry in grade 4 too?

Special Project

We made this special project over the last few weeks. The Magic School Bus project was made in year 4 class. All the students of year 4 class worked hard on the MSB projects.

Each student chose a MSB chapter book. We each read our books over one week, some students finished early. On the project we had to put 15 booklets sharing information about the book topic.

We did the projects to learn about many different topics. We are also going to use the projects for a scavenger hunt with year 3.

Have you ever read a Magic School Bus book? Chapter book? Picture book? What did you like about it?

Our Amazing Weekly Assembly

Every Tuesday morning at 7:45AM on the playground we have our assembly. All of elementary school students, teachers and some parents. At the assembly we sing the National Anthems of Brazil and Canada.  We sing the anthems each week to show that we are proud of our country and to represent them.

Some assemblies we celebrate important days like Canada Day, Brazil Independence Day, Tree day, Water day and many more.

On very special weeks we have had special visitors including many athletes.
