Chers parents,

Happy Chinese New Year to all!


Les nouvelles de la division 20:

During the month of January, the students enjoyed working on the following activities:

In French Language Arts, we were working on enhancing our reading comprehension by making and sharing our connections during our literacy circles.

In Math, we have found a great interest in the unit of measurement so we wish to stay just there!

In Science, we conducted our apple experiment, learning about water and earth, and have explored different characteristics of water.

In Social Studies, while learning about Canada, we have watched the ‘Panorama du Canada’ documentary and played “Canada’s provinces/ territories’ and capitals” game.

In Arts, we thought to explore some Chinese characters for Chinese New Year. Also, students of both divisions 19 and 20 sang a variety of classroom repertoire songs and practiced French folklore dance.

Chers amis (es), Bravo to all of you! Keep it up!!


This is what we will be doing in the month of February.

Dictée Sounds: ein, ain, ille, gn
