Our Skype Call From Vincent!

This Monday, our excellence class was thrilled to receive a skype call from our friend Vincent who is currently going to school in Uganda! It was amazing getting to catch up with our old friend. He has been missed so much this year. The students in Excellence cannot wait to chat with their friend again soon!

Light Art With Ms. Jacky!

As you know, our current unit is on light. They kids have been doing lots of inquiry work in what light is and why we need it in our lives. It has been amazing to see what they have come up with.

Each Friday, the excellence have the chance to visit Ms. Jacky as she guides us through some exciting art/ light activities. Last week we made light catchers.

Please enjoy viewing images of our art process.[metaslider id=280]
