This week we talked about Remembrance Day and why we remember. We made some poppies and crosses during art and turned them into a wreath to bring to our Remembrance Day Ceremony.
During Religion we watched a video and learned a song about being a bucket filler.
We then discussed as a group how we can all be bucket fillers .
The children had a lot of fun reading the story "The Nowhere Box". After the story we discussed where we would go in our own nowhere box. Some of the places we would like to go are:
Around the world (Keith), to Disneyland (Veronica), to the Jungle (Estelle), to space (Ntwari), to Toronto to visit my sisters (Addison), the North Pole (Chanel), the Princess Place (Sofia) and to New York (Christopher).
We then played with our own nowhere box! The children used different art materials to decorate their nowhere box.
On French days, we started talking about healthy eating and choices. We learned about some different vegetables: la carotte, le brocoli, le chou, le chou fleur, le poireau, l'haricot vert.
We read the story "Stone Soup" and decided to use all of our vegetables to make 'Une soupe d'amitié', a friendship soup. The children helped to wash all the vegetables and break them up to put in our soup. Some discovered new smells!
When the soup was all ready we all enjoyed a bowl of our 'soupe d'amitié'. When we were done eating, we thought it would be nice to share our 'soupe d'amitié'!
Here are some more pictures from our week.
