Grade 5 Field Trip by Emily and Jayda

In grade 5 we went on a field trip to CBC and the Alberta Gallery of Art.  At CBC Blue room went with Cory Edel and purple room went with Stephanie Barsby.  Cory Edel is a weather forecaster on  CBC.  He talked about his job and how to do it.  Cory told us it is hard to see a tornado and easy to see a hurricane.

They took this picture of us with Cory Edel.

Here is our class listening to Mr. Edel tell us about his job.

          At the Art Gallery we saw some cool works of art.  In the exhibit Of Heaven and Earth we saw 500 years of Italian paintings.  There were a lot of Greek and Roman paintings, and a lot of cupids and babies.  There was an exhibit called Bowerbird.  In Bowerbird there were a lot of different shapes and colors.  Suspend was another exhibit. It was very peaceful and the artist only focused on one part.  In the Cabinets of Curiosity you could touch everything. 

  My favorite work of art was one painting in Suspend - it was a picture of a blue tent.  My favorite part of the whole field trip was walking in the town square because it was beautiful.

Snow Day!

What do you do on a snow day? Play in the snow!
With the extraordinary amount of snow this year, some snow games just beg to be played. Because the buses were cancelled and many students were unable to come to school, all the grade five students joined together for a little fun outside. Not only was the snow deep, it was also heavy and hard to walk through. Here's one of the games we played:

Tie a white cloth to the end of a short stick or around the bowl of a wooden spoon. Then, give each child a chance to hide it by staking it anywhere within a predetermined set of boundaries. Keep track of how long it takes for the rest of the group to find it. Whoever hid the flag that takes the longest time to spot wins the game.

What is bullying?


Bullies are mean people. They might be having an issue at home or they might do it for fun, but what ever the reason is with these kids, we must put an end to it. Every one that gets bullied is sad: they might be tired of being bullied or they might turn into bullies.

If you are bullied tell someone so it can be stopped. If you don't stop it when it is small then it will get bigger and bigger.

The Christmas Concert


Each and every year we have a Christmas concert at my school. The last week of school before winter break we do a Christmas concert. There is a play and different songs, and this year we are doing traditional songs from around the world. The play is about Santa, an elf and two girls learning about different countries and their traditions. My grade is singing three songs: O'Hanukkah, Deck the Halls and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. 

These are some of the decorations the other grades made. 


                                                                                                     This is the play and the stage.

Art in Grade 5

Art has been very successful. We have made name art, blob art, snowman art and we are making whimsical trees. Art can be hard when you don't have an idea or don't know what to do. I feel that to make it easier,  you need to be around things that inspire you or to be around things you like. I am also very excited to find out what our next art project will be this year.
