THIS WEEK IN IMAGES: The Learning Behind the Photos

Every week I try to capture the learning that goes on in our classrooms, hallways, portables, and beyond.  I know that I miss many activities, presentations, learning tasks, and happenings that take place throughout the week, but I can still say with confidence, Cambridge is a place of  rich learning, thinking, creating, communicating, and succeeding. In last week’s photos look how many students are engaged in work that matters!

Learning How to Make Stop Motion Videos

Learning about the Coast Salish People: Cedar, Wool, and Stone Workshop

Learning and Showing Our Understanding of the Core Competencies

Learning about a BC Resource: Salmon and Commercial Fishing

Sullivan Heights Leaders work with our Gr.1s, Learning Games and Skills

Rich Minds-on Learning Activities in our Portables

Safe Schools Social Media Presentation

Physical Education at the New Aquatic Centre

More Learning Activities this Week!

And Learning through the Arts

SCHOOL-WIDE ASSEMBLY: Happy Spring Break!

This last Friday, our last Friday before Spring Break, students and staff gathered for a week’s end assembly.  We reviewed and talked about assembly etiquette and expectations, recognized our basketball players and coaches, honoured our Science Fair participants, and gave a warm farewell to Ms. Pannu, one of our Education Assistants, who will be taking on the position of Teacher-On-Call in Delta.  Congratulations and best wishes, Ms. Pannu!

After watching Mr. Nelson’s wonderful video, “A Look Back at February and March”, Mr. Nelson wished everyone a safe and happy Spring Break!  See you, Monday, March 27th!

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Polar Bear Cub Loves Her Life . . . 

The other day a friend of mine sent me this video clip.  As I watched, I couldn’t help laughing out loud at the playful and curious antics of this very skilled little polar bear.  It got me thinking about how important it is to invite our children to be curious and independent, to play and to be who they want to be.  Have a peek!

 

Finally, I wish all our Cambridge families a happy Spring Break. March break is for families to take some time to play together, laugh, and enjoy the company of those we love.  Take care, and enjoy your family time!  Next post will be April 3rd.
