This week, the Art team has been busy setting up an exhibition in the Floating Gallery on Halsted. The exhibition was a celebration of the winning pieces from the exhibition in the school gym 2 weeks ago.
Over the past few weeks, Year 3 has been exploring how to survive in a French town. Year 3 students are fully prepared to survive being lost in Paris as they can now ask for and even give directions in French. The students are also able to ask for the location of key attractions and landmarks in new cities.
Year 3 and 4 were excited this week as they participated in their Primary Science Fair. Over the last eight weeks, the children have been working really hard on their projects and produced some fantastic work which they should be proud of. Year 3 children were investigating the science behind rock candy crystal growth and Year 4 were looking into the science behind popcorn! Both year groups put together a project which focused on scientific methodology. They included an hypothesis, a method based on fair testing, results, graphs and conclusions. They were expected to research the science behind their topics and put together a presentation about their work. The caliber of projects was extremely high and we were fortunate to have an external judge, Dr. Whyte, to help decide upon the winners in each class. Following on from the Science Fair, all the children were given feedback based on their scientific methodology.
