Thursday September 21st 2017

Here are a few updates about what your child is currently learning in French class as well as a few important messages:

First, I would like to share a website that provides a variety of links to other French sites. That being said, when choosing an activity or experience from these sites, they should be focused on language learning in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar (rather than games because you will find that some sites are more game based). Here is the site:

The grade 4 French Immersion class has followed the writing process and students are writing an autobiography that they will be presented once they are completed. They have also experimented with color and texture during visual arts. They have also begun the unit about medieval times by sharing questions they have for their upcoming research.

The grade 6 French Immersion class will be learning about how to write a French biography on Friday and they will begin the writing process by interviewing a friend and taking notes about their friends' responses. For visual arts, they have learned about juxtaposition and shading. They have also begun the unit about first nations and explorers by sharing questions they have for their upcoming research.
Both classes have discussed the life of Terry Fox and how he persevered through his run across Canada. A reminder that the Terry Fox Walk is tomorrow morning at 9:30! Here is the link to the song that your child listened to yesterday:
