The extended French group has been working hard on their creative writing these last few weeks. They were tasked with creating a plan, writing a story and having their story peer-reviewed before finally creating their final product on Story Jumper.
Our 2 authors today are Jonah and Liam V.

Simple machines are all around us!
Today we discovered where we use levers, gears and pulleys in everyday life. Our time with Scentistic Deb included:
- Investigating how levers lift.
- Assemble gear trains and belt drives and examine how they operate.
- Construct different pulley systems and explore why we use them.

Today in Grade 4, we discussed what self-care is and ways that we can look after ourselves.
Students talked about things they do for enjoyment or to find calm in their lives.
Next, we created a self gratitude list where we listed and celebrated positive things about ourselves! These are coming home tonight so keep the talking going…
Our final mission is for students to secretly ‘post’ a message of gratitude to another person in the class or a simple positive comment to share with everyone into our grade 4 gratitude box. This is an ongoing project for the rest of the year and we pledge to share positivity each week.
Last week, we launched our new science unit of Pulleys and Gears! We begin learning about pulley systems as simple machines and how they operate. Of course, we built our own to see how they work. Here are some examples:
We will be looking at combined pulleys and the science of force and distance next week!
