This week was Italian Week! All week we have been doing Italian themed activities such as dressing up as something Italian, the La Festa performance, a pizza and gelato lunch, and mask making with our buddies. I had a great week! My favourite activity was the La Festa performance, it was so funny!

My DISMOMENT this week was when we did the mini science experiments. I liked doing the volcano one the best Because it was really fun to make the volcano and to watch it erupt.

Montmorency Visit

Montmorency secondary college

Today all of the grade 5s went to Montmorency Secondary College for Leadership Day. Leadership Day is when we do all different activities to develop our Leadership skills. There were activities to do with persistence, enthusiasm, initiative, strategy, teamwork, communication and cooperation. We all had colour coded groups. My group was Mustard. 

The activities were Flying Blind, Elevation Frustation, Coin Laundry, Moving the 7 Seas, International Jewel Heist, Check in Tangle, Passport Checkpoint, Airport Dash, Translation Station and Words with Friends. My favourite activity was Moving the 7 Seas where we had to suck up M&Ms  with our straws and get them from one bowl to another without dropping it. My team got 25 and the team we versed (black team) got 16… We Won! The other activity I liked was International Jewel Heist which is like cops and robbers. I had a great time at Montmorency and can’t wait to visit again!

On Thursday the 23rd of July Archie Fusillo came to our classroom to teach us about writing and drawing. He was very funny and creative. He told us all about how he started off as an author and all the way through to where he is now. We drew some pictures of the characters in his books. We drew Billy – Bob, Tripod and Chook Woman. Here are some pictures from his visit.
