THE FUN RUN!

Yesterday the class and me went to the school fun run. I ran five laps. I was running first and then I was walking. We also got bread on a sausage.  A whole lot of people ran there. It was tough run and it was a fun run. BY BAILEY!

Letter from Canada – Part 2

We get to school in lots of different ways. Some of us ride our bikes, some walk,
some get dropped off by cars, some take school buses, and some of us even take taxis and
scooters! How do you get to school?
It is the same for us. We get to school by buses

What are your favourite foods? Our favourites are hot chocolate, chips, spaghetti,
sandwiches, Kraft Dinner, fruit and poutines.
We start school at 8:45 and end at 3:05 and go to school Monday to Friday, from
September to June, and then it is summer holidays. During the day we have two breaks
where we eat and then go outside for recess. We have students from Kindergarten to
Grade 8 here. We have a gymnasium with a big stage. We learn language, math, drama,
music, art, computers, social studies, science, and when we are in Grade 4 we start learning
French. We also get to take out library books. We have a big library and lots of computers
and iPads. Everyone sings Oh Canada in the morning. That’s our national anthem. What
does your flag look like? Do you sing an anthem too? What subjects do you learn in school?
Do you have Grade 1s and Kindergarten at your school? We have a Smartboard and we
LOVE getting to use it. Do you have one, too?
