Micro:bits

December 9-13 was Hour of Code week.  Students in Mrs. London’s class explored various coding apps on the iPad and completed coding tasks at Code.org.   In addition to this we used block coding to program micro-computers called BBC Micro:bits. Next week, we will be using coding to create digital Christmas cards.

Mrs. Dutchak and Ms. Gatt’s busy classes!

Our (Ms. Gatt and Mrs. Dutchak) totems are all finished. Students learned about the significance of totem poles to the West Coast Indigenous groups of Canada. They studied traditional colours, animals, carving tools and techniques as well as the types of totem poles. Students designed a totem pole piece where the animal and colours chosen represented their strengths and characteristics. This project linked to Social Studies, Visual Art, ADST and the the Personal/ Social Core Competency.

Mr. Dutchak’s class collected items for Peace Seniors Connect and Care as a way to give back to our community. Items were picked up this week and we hope to brighten someone’s Christmas this year. 

We also went to the ELC to make support posters for the Trackers 4th Annual Foodbank game. A few of the Trackers stopped by and signed our posters. I huge thank you to Mr. Salinas’ Communication class for helping us design, create and paint our posters!
