On Monday we went to Macskimming for our Pioneer day. it was so fun. We traveled on the bus to the forest and there were so many bugs! We all met inside the log cabin and met our leader his name was Andrew. First, we went to the school house and had to sing God Save the Queen. Miss M was really out of tune! She said it has been years since she sang it. We had to sing this because people from Britain settled here first and that was their anthem. Then we did cursive writing with a quill and ink. A quill is a feather.
Then we walked through the forest and learned about what we can use from the land to survive. Then we built a log cabin. That was so cool. After lunch, we made spinning tops and then we had to do pioneer children’s chores. We had to saw and drill into the wood then carry water buckets on our shoulders, use a wheelbarrow to move ice blocks and finally crush up corn to make flour. It was so tiring.
My least favorite thing was going to school…Guess what!? At school, they made us write with our Right hand. me sam and lily write with our left hand. It was so hard!
On Tuesday, first, we had general studies. In General studies we practice our cursive writing. We really enjoyed cursive writing at Macskimming so Mrs. Bennett decided to teach us all of the alphabets in cursive. We had to write a journal entry about macskimming in cursive… it was so hard!
Here is the blogger of the week presenting about the blogger of the week:
After we had phys ed. In phys ed, we played castle ball. It’s where you’re split up into 2 groups and you have to build a castle using only 6 hula hoops it was very fun. Then the teams try to knock them down with dodgeballs and you have to defend your castle.
Next was French we watched a movie with Mr. Bruno called Recess. It’s about a group of kids in school who are trying to get the evil teachers out who want the school to stay open all summer!
Next, we had Hebrew in Hebrew first we did Tefillah After Tefillah we worked in are ספך. That means ‘book’ in Hebrew.
(then it was home time yay 🙂
On Wednesday we had Hebrew first in Hebrew first we did Tefillah here are the songs we usually do in Tefillah like מוֹדה אני מה טבו יגדל אשרי אדון עולם שמע ישׂר עלינו
Then after tefillah we worked on our blue book.
In English we worked on our cursive writing. We are doing this thing in our class called the great Canadian mail race and guess what someone in our class got a letter back here is a picture of the letter.
We had music with Mr. R. In music we learned about world music. We listened to different music styles and we had to guess which country they came from. We were pretty good!
In the afternoon, we had French. In French, we finished our French movie and then the grade 4 class came in to present their French skits. They were funny and really good!
I led the anthems today:
First, we continued with our cursive writing practice. Then we did a reading circle with Mrs. Bennett and learned about pioneer jobs. Some included a Wainwright (we heard about this on our field trip on Monday!), a blacksmith, a tailor and many more.
Then we had gym and it was our first summer class outside! Everyone was really excited. Some people played soccer, some people played baseball, I played wall ball. I hope we get to go outside more.
Ms Cleveland came to do math with the class. We were excited to tell her about our letter from New Brunswick. Then we did a math class all about distance and estimations. Did you know that from Ottawa to Nova Scotia, it is 1,436 km? I guessed 1,449km. I was only 13km away.
In French, we presented our French recipes. We used what we know about the foods in French such as; une pomme, une banane, bon bons, les guimauves, les fraises and many more. We also used verbs such as; couper, colle, placer, trempe, ajoute et manger.
In the afternoon we had Hebrew. We did our reading homework and practised our writing with Morah Sigal’s questions of the day. Then a group went with Miss M to work on the Roots project. I can’t tell you too much because it is a surprise but you will see very soon what we have worked on.
I also finished my paper blog today! Here I am with it:
