February and March Upper Elementary Classroom Blog

February 2014 Upper El Blog

We enjoyed another great month at MBTS. We enjoyed Sports Day and the String Fever field trip. Recess is always enjoyable too, where everyone is busy playing capture the flag and football.

This month the whole class of Upper El and MYP went to the String Fever concert. This was a wonderful and exciting field trip because we got to see four super talented musicians play new and old hits on wacky instruments. This was by far one of the best days of the month at Montessori By The Sea.

Sports Day took place this month with everyone being super excited. Everyone was happy to be able to take place in this series of events. The egg and spoon race, the mixed sprints and the obstacle course are only three of the several fun events that took place during Sports Day. Thank you to Ms. Karen for organizing a fun-filled day.

This month the people of ‘Group Infinity’ in Upper Elementary were happy to complete their Winter Olympics projects. In Upper El every day at lunch time the students had the choice to watch the winter Olympics while they were eating lunch. With some help from Mr. Chad, this inspired them to dig deeper into the Olympics and create amazing projects with predictions and fun facts.

March Upper El Blog

Welcome back to another great term in Upper El.

We all hope you enjoyed your Half Term Break.

Everyone is getting back into the swing of things with their new projects. Recently Mr. Chad took each of the grades separately on a field trip to go around the island to find examples of land and water forms. Also, Mr. Andre has been reading a book called “Timmy Failure” to some of the students.  Luckily, the author was on the island so Mr. Andre took those students to hear the author tell them how to make a good book.

We also had the March assembly and we did the importance of school and also a play on “Pi” day. In class we made cherry pies for “Pi” day which also was connected to math with all the measurements. Pi day is when we celebrate the number Pi which is 3.14159 and how Pi helps in our lives with anything to do with circles.
