We had a fantastic day exploring Science World! We also had the great opportunity to attend a Workshop called “Radical Ramps.” We learned about gravity, forces (push and pull), and friction.
Before we caught the bus back to school we explored the cool new playground beside Science World!
We were excited to return to our classroom and find ways to make more Radical Ramps with the materials in our classroom!
Thank you parents and families for supporting us in this exciting opportunity!
The last few weeks have been super busy as we’ve been preparing for our school musical – Alice in Wonderland!! The children were sooo excited to sing their songs and show you their fancy footwork!! We hope you enjoyed the show! This is a memory your children will treasure for the rest of their lives. We are so very lucky to have such a fantastic music teacher at our school!! Here is a little video of our class during their times “on stage”. The opening number, our Caucus Race and the Finale!
Here we in Music Class practicing for our first big musical….
We have the BEST Music teacher at South Slope! Not only is she busy preparing all of us for our school musical….but, she made time to help us sing to our Spuds in Tubs. I’m sure they grew 10cm as they heard us singing!
Divisions 10 and 11 were very excited to have the Burnaby Fire Department come to read a story to us today! After the story we were even more thrilled to go and visit & tour their fire truck!
As winter weather approaches, there is occasionally the chance it will snow. You may wonder if the school will be open or not. Typically it will be!
If Burnaby closes the schools they will post it on the front page of the district website by about 6:30am. Click here: Burnaby School District Website
The most reliable way to learn of school closures is to listen for updates on the following radio stations: CBC 690 AM;
CBC Radio One 88.1 FM; CKWX 1130 AM; CKNW 980 AM; Fairchild 1470 AM; or Fairchild 96.1 FM.
PLEASE….do not call the school. Thanks so much!

Our Spuds in Tubs have been growing since March and we were finally were able to harvest them on Friday. The Primary classes met outside and dug our hands into the soil to harvest our potatoes! It was amazing to see how big some of the potatoes were this year. We found lots of bugs too! Mr Brown’s & Ms Cheung’s classes counted the potatoes — we harvested over 500 Spuds this year! Later in the day we cooked them and met as a group to make potato sundaes with butter, sour cream, cheese, salt & pepper. Yum!! Potatoes are soooooo good!
