Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Year 3

As the weather starts to warm up and the school year approaches the end, we find ourselves wrapping up our fifth unit of inquiry, where we investigated how evidence of the past is a lens into everyday life in today’s communities. The boys have enjoyed learning about the first Canadians and the earliest settlers. The boys summarized this unit by creating a Venn Diagram that related examples of everyday life of early pioneers to their lives today.

We are now launching into our final unit of inquiry entitled Cityscape. For this unit, boys will be exploring the relationships between human land use, the environment and the economy. We have started out by exploring the UCC campus and looking at how the land is used. We will widen our lens and be looking at the surrounding community sometime this week if weather permits!  

In math, we are fully engaged in our fractions unit. You can support the program at home by engaging your son in relevant discussions about fractions. “If I were to eat three quarters of this orange, what would that leave?” Point out fractions in your everyday lives. “If there are eight slices of pizza, and you have one slice, what would be left over?”  To wrap up the year in Math the boys will be participating in a math competition that combines teamwork, running, and mathematical understanding. Students will also be entering into a brief monetary literacy unit where they will be introduced to some topics that they will be covering in greater detail next year including decimals.

Please continue to check the agenda nightly as the end of the year is a very busy time and the amount of communication will likely increase in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you for your continued support.

Ms. Crippin ccrippin@ucc.on.ca and Mr. Ferley mferley@ucc.on.ca
