We have started a unit on storytelling in Spanish and the G10’s were totally game, they got all dressed up as book or movie characters. There was Enid Blyton’s Julian from the Famous Five, Mario Puzzo’s Godfather, Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and some “Money Heisters”. Students showed not only how creative they are, but also how engaged they are in their own learning.

Willem Barentsz, Sylvia Earle, Junko Tabei, Kay Cottee and Sacagawea were only a few of the explorers that were spotted around the Grade 5 classrooms last week. Inquiry is all about exploring and the Grade 5 students presented their work to their peers on exploring explorers in very informative and imaginative ways!
