BW Calendar

Daily Homework

Every day, your child should be reading at home (in both French and English), and practicing basic math facts:
 - addition to 18 and related subtraction facts
 - multiplication to 5x5 for Grade 3 and to 7x7 for Grade 4... and related division facts 

UNTIL THESE ARE RECALLED AUTOMATICALLY without hesitation and without need for mental calculation.

Please note that Grade 4s also need to be able to understand and apply strategies for multiplication and related division facts to 9x9 (so for the 8 times table and the 9 times table, and related division facts).

POLAR BANDITS

The Polar Bandit Club is for days when the temperature outside is between -20 C and -30 C.  Currently all students go outside when the temperature is warmer than -20 C with or without the windchill.  Students whose parents have signed the Polar Bandit Club permission form and have the appropriate winter gear (see above) will go outside for recess time when the temperature is between -20 C and -30 C (with or without the windchill) for some much needed movement.  The remainder of the students will go to the gymnasium at this time to get their much needed movement by walking laps.  Remember the McKeage Mantra:  "Outside is the best side!"  We are Canadian!  We are Polar Bandits!




As a school we are focused on building growth mindset with our students. What does this mean? Please check out these videos:

Skating

ALL children at Ecole Barrie Wilson will be involved in skating after Christmas holidays as part of Physical Education.  Classroom skating begins the first week after the Christmas break, and runs until the end of February/beginning of March weather and ice permitting.


Physical Education Safety Guidelines requires that all students MUST wear a CSA approved hockey helmet for all ice skating activities.  Bicycle helmets are not permitted as they are not deemed to be safe. Be sure that the helmet has a sticker that says CSA approved.

In addition, children MUST wear mitts or gloves and snow pants while skating.


Please be advised that if your child rides the bus, they are required to have their skates in a canvas type bag for safety reasons.  


Also, if you have any skates or helmets that you would like to donate to our school, please drop them off at the school’s main office.  


******If you can help tie and/or untie skates during your child’s skating time****** your help would be GREATLY appreciated!!  


Thank you and happy skating! :)
