My stay at Carson Grove School (Ottawa)

This is Carson Grove School. It is a small school in the North-west of Ottawa (Canada's capital).
Around 300 kids attend lessons everyday from 9.15 in the morning up to 15.45 in the afternoon.
 
There are 22 teachers at school, a janitor, a principal, a vice-principal, secretaries, lunch monitors.
This is a special school because it follows the  open-concept methodology. Just 2% of Canadian kids attend this type of schools. This means there are no walls in the classrooms, so everyone feels like part of a community and it is really easy to move from one class to the next one. The only problem is that sometimes it gets a little bit noisy.
Carson Grove is a multicultural school, an 80% of its students come from different countries. Most of them are inmigrants or refugees from Pakistan, Siria, India, Africa, China, Afganistán, Iraq...

Everyday kids sing the national anthem "O Canada" and after that the principal makes some announcements such us news, birthdays, reminders and jokes, too.
Primary students have Language, Math, French, Gym, French, Art and Social studies lessons. They can go outside to the yard when they have the recess from 11.15 up to 12.00.

Primary students' schedule has two nutritional breaks, whereas Kindegarden kids have three. Healthy habits are very important and teachers work hard to implement those. In some classes, kids are allowed to have snacks whenever they want and they keep food under their desks. At the nutrional break, kids stay in class and are supervised by older kids and by lunch monitors, as well.


Class teachers are responsible for giving all the school subjects' lessons, except for French and Music. There are supporting teachers who attend those kids with special needs or those who have just arrived and do not speak English.
At my stay there I supported different classes and enjoyed a lot sharing information about my school and my country. In fact, I showed them a presentation which they liked very much.

MONTH OF THE USA

This year we dedicated our  "Month of..." project to the USA.

First, our language assistant Makayla introduced the topic with a cool presentation about her country.




We played a cooperative Kahoot game to check if we had understood all the explanations.





Year 6 students will be on charge of a cooking workshop. So, the first step was to  watch a famous American cartoon: Spongebob. They should learn about how to cook a Krabby Patty and later on they will teach Year 3 students about it.
In these videos you can watch Year 6 students going shopping in order to buy a Krabby Patty´s ingredients:






Year 4 students are creating our school fight song, following Makayla´s example of her college in Toledo.



Year 5 students listened carefully to Makayla reading The cat in the hat by Dr. Zeuss. After that, they will cooperate to tell the story to their  mates.


WOMEN IN SCIENCE BY YEAR 5

Today we played a cards game about Women in Science.
Makayla, our  language assistant, explained us how to play.
 We had to get 4 scientists in order to create a women's lab.
 The funniest thing of all was to get special cards with cool powers to clone, copy or steal cards to our mates. Xiana, Maite and Fran were the best players!!! Congrats to all!!!
