Good morning Upper Elementary Parents and Students,

Only one day left in the summer program!   Here’s what we did today:

Art Group One is designing and creating a family collage to celebrate how God created our unique families. Art Group Two is working on “negative space” drawings with cut-outs and messy backgrounds.

Today in Drama 1 we will be performing our Reader’s Theater scripts in class. Drama Group 2 are studying: What is spectacle? We will learn what spectacle is and its role in drama by creating costumes for a bible story.

In Group 1 music today the students are listening to music to detect tempo, pitch and rhythm and how these things affect our feelings about music. In Group 2 music today we have round two (Double Jeopardy) of North America’s most popular game show populated with content that we have covered thus far.  Yesterday we completed the first half of the game and your children absolutely loved this activity.

Adventure Activities Group 1  will be doing “Hoop Relay” and “Jungle Crossing” .  Group 2 will be playing “Mine Field”, “Leapfrog” and “Burst the Balloons”.

Games are working on an obstacle course today.

UE Group 1 Adventure Activities we will be doing “All Aboard” and “Hunger Games” tomorrow . Group 2 are competing to collect different items while being blindfolded.

Group 1 Music learned about pitch, rhythm and tempo. In Group 2 Music today we begin to recap what we have done by playing the North American game show “JEOPARDY” populated with content from our very own Music Class!  Yesterday we did complete the song book “How Much is that Doggie in the Window” by Iza Trapani with Gr 2/3.  For Gr 3/4 filmed the song book “When I first came to this land.”  We will try to get these to you on the blog or in another manner.

The Games classes are playing badmitton.

Group 1 Drama is working on their scripts. Group 2 Drama: What is theme? All stories have theme, and we will be looking at several bible stories and finding out the theme of those stories.
