Field Trip to the Art Gallery!

This week was our field trip to the Art Gallery! Mr. Bernardo came to our school before we ventured over to conduct a Fine Arts Workshop - he did a few different drawings with the children that were very easy to follow and turned out great! He was very patient and animated, which the kids loved! When we finished the workshop we all walked over to the Gallery Exhibit to take a look at more of his work. It was a great day full of magnificent art and we thank all of you for participating!

This week we learnt all about Passover. We learnt the story behind the holiday, the reason that we do not eat bread, and we even saw the difference between matzah and leavened bread. As a special treat we made chocolate matzah together to have for snack!

Happy Easter!

Today and tomorrow we will be celebrating Easter with our Easter Party!
Today the children went on a magical Easter egg hunt. We each found as many eggs as we could and then we counted them all. We arranged them by colour, patterns and size. We also tried on some funny Easter hats and did our Little Peter Cotton Tail dance wearing them. We finished all of our Easter arts and sent them home in a special Easter bucket. Some of our friends even bought Easter treats to share! What a great day! Happy Easter everyone!

Outdoor Play!

This week all of the classes got out into the fresh air for some outdoor play! We had snow mountain competitions, used the shovels to see who could fill the colourful buckets the fastest, and made a small snow city for all of our outdoor animal toys!

Today our JK Class created an Easter mural to decorate the School. We painted our own Easter egg designs, added some magical sparkles and then glued them to the mural piece. We worked very hard to spell out the words, HAPPY EASTER. We added some additional drawings to our mural that we thought people would like to see, such as a sunshine, Easter eggs in baskets, a Princess and even some pictures of our family.
