January is well underway and we have been busy in the gifted class.
The students had alot of fun reasearching and writing their Top 10 lists of 2011. These should be completed and handed in by today.
We are nearly completed the numeracy unit we began in December. We will have a math test on the unit next Wednesday January 25.
We have several special events planned in the coming months.
February 9 is the Junior Debater Forum at the school board office in Midhurst. The Intermediate Debaters forum will be on February 17. We will be preparing for the debates for the next three weeks in class. I will be sending home a permission for the debates next week.
On March 5, we have the Intermediate Math Olympics at the school board office and the lego Robotics Revolution will be held on March 30.
In March and April we will be preparing history projects to present at the Simcoe county Heritage Fair on April 25 at the Simcoe County Museum.
On May 4, we are planning to attend the annual Gifted Outreach Conferencehosted by Laurentian University in Orillia for Simcoe County Gifted students.
