This week we figured out that one whole division can fit into our co-operatively designed castle. We also explored castle design with a variety of websites. Next week we will try our hand at creating a ‘virtual castle’.
Other students have also been enjoying the nominations for the Surrey Schools’ Picture Book of the Year. Check out Spike:Ugliest Dog in the Universe by Debra Frasier. Spike’s message fits in perfectly with our #KindnessCounts ideas; A kind heart is a beautiful thing. We also enjoyed The Black Rabbit by Philippa Leathers, and loved Michael Hall’s It’s an Orange Aardvark which was great fun to read aloud.
Wonderful Word Work with Ms. Postnikoff’s hardworking students!
Ms. Postnikoff’s class also explored winter tree art.

Using math games, Ms. Lattey’s class learns math in a way that is both fun and challenging.
