Welcome back to school !
2012 is going to be a busy time for room 5/6 students. We have begun a study on the Solar System and the continent of Europe--concentrating on the country of France. The children are learning about the 8 planets; which planets can people live on? Which one is the farthest from the sun, hottest, the smallest, etc.
Other things being explored are: What is life like in France? What language do people speak in France? And numerous other interesting things about this beautiful country.
