Tree Diagrams

We started out day with an Arts’ Night Rehearsal. Grade 6s used time between their tasks to work on their UOI project.

Next up was math. First we took up Friday’s homework. Then we began a lesson on probability where more than one outcome is possible. We used tree diagrams to find all possible outcomes. We wrote the probability of favourable outcomes using fractions, percents, and decimals. Students are asked to complete the practice problems on p. 418 – 419 of the MMS textbook. The unit test for the Probability unit will likely take place on Tuesday, June 7.  Look out for math measurement tests coming home today. Please take time to review the test with your child, sign it, and return it to school. Some students will be writing a retest on Wednesday. These students stayed in during second recess to correct their tests.

Students had gym class with Mr. Slyk. Boys that were away at the Friday’s Track & Field meet missed gym class in order to do their writing assessment.

We met in our novel study groups to discuss chapter 7 of The Bridge to Terabithia. Students were assigned to read and respond to chapter 8 for homework.

The end of the day was used for by students to work on their UOI project.

Spelling bee finalists, please keep practicing your spelling bee words and more for the contest against The Maples Academy.

Arts’ Night presenters should have memorised their lines.
