Simple Machines

Our class is currently learning about simple machines in Science. We began with reviewing terminology and different kinds of simple machines. Students then had a chance to get hands on and work with simple machines themselves in experiments that helped them to understand how each simple machine can help with “work”. Finally students looked at real life tools to see how some can be made up of several types of simple machines and what they are used for. To help further deepen your child’s understanding of simple machines, feel free to talk to them about what they have been learning and look for examples of  simple machines around your own house! Happy searching! 🙂

Have a great winter break!

Can you believe it is already December?! Time flies so quickly this time of year! I am so proud of all the hard work the students have been doing this past term, and for their exciting performance in this year’s winter concert. I am looking forward to all of our activities in the coming year.

I also just wanted to say thank you to all the families for the thoughtful gifts your children have been bringing in. You are all so kind and appreciated. I hope that everyone has a happy, healthy, and safe winter break filled with fun with family and friends. I will see you all in 2019! Best wishes 🙂

We Scare Hunger Wrap-up

This year Division 2 decided to take on a leadership project for October. We wanted to help those within our community that were struggling to put food on the table. We found a food drive campaign that we thought would help us make a difference, and it was called “We Scare Hunger”. We Scare Hunger took a lot of work to set up. Our class had poster teams, a display case team, a communications team, a video team, and an art team to put all the pieces of the food drive together. Throughout this journey, we learned that a little can go a long way to help others, and that anyone can be involved in helping others in the community, no matter how big or small you are. It was so enjoyable to watch this process and how the food drive took shape because of the dedication all students in the class showed. Everyone had a part in the food drive, and would offer to help others if they saw that another group needed help. I am so proud of each and every one of you 🙂 

On behalf of our class, we want to give a big thank you to all the families that donated food items. You were all so generous, and helped us to raise over 700 items of food that will be donated to local food banks. This generosity will make a big difference in some people’s lives. Thank you!

Student Vote 2018

 In the past few weeks divisions one through four have been learning about our local government. Each class looked at the positions that make up our local government, how an election works, and even did some research on each of the local candidates in Burnaby. Students were able to think critically about each candidate and take part in a student vote where they had the chance to share their choices for Burnaby government.  Students were very excited to get the opportunity to take part in the vote, and said that it made them feel like their voices mattered and that they felt “grown up” when voting. 

We Scare Hunger

Good afternoon Buckingham. Ms. Wilschek’s class is organizing the We Scare Hunger program, we are collecting food items from each class for food drive, we need every class to donate cans for the program. The donated cans are going to the families in Burnaby that need support to put food on the table. There is a huge amount of people in Burnaby that can’t afford enough food. We can help them by donating can any type of food cans it doesn’t matter if you donate 1 or 100 cans. Every can counts. There are 4 million people needing a meal in Canada.

This program lasts for 9 days from Monday October 22, 2018 to Wednesday October 31, 2018. Our goal is to raise 800 cans for donation from the whole school and the primary and intermediate class that raise the most cans will get a prize!

 

THANK  YOU FOR DONATING!
