Grade 1

Thursday, May 28, 2020


Being kind to one another is not always the easiest thing to do, but do it anyway because that’s how we let God’s love shine through us to others. We don’t know how the other person may be feeling or what they have been through so just be kind.


Poem to read:


If you’ll remember always

there’s no goal you can’t achieve,

If you’ll try your very hardest,

and above all else believe.

Believe that your a person

who has something good to give.

Believe that you can make this world 

a better place to live.

If you’ll believe your talents

and your skills are needed, too.

Then you’re sure to find there’s nothing

in this world you cannot do!


My Grade Ones, please stay healthy and safe!  I miss you all.  I hope to see you soon.

Christian Education

This year, we will make time  throughout the day to be still and be with God.  This first term we will be deliberate in making the sign of the cross and praying Hail Mary, Our Father and Glory Be.  We will also join the rest of the students  in participating in school Masses,  praying the Angelus and the grace before meal.  Additionally, we will listen to bible stories and learn about the rosary.


Language Arts

It is always a good idea to read, write and share stories.  This term we will be learning to read words with short vowel sounds, spell phonetic words and some high frequency words.  We will also be working on writing our letters properly and with greater mastery.












This term, we will be working on knowing our numbers to 100 and writing our numbers correctly from 0 to 20.  We will also be working on skip counting and orally adding doubles (0+0=0. 1+1-2.2+2=4,…….10+10=20).  We will also learn about patterns – constructing, recognizing and naming them.



This term, we are learning about matter, its properties and usefulness.  We will also discuss living things and how its behaviours adapt to survive in their environment..



This term, we will learn about our community and know our roles, rights and responsibilities within our school community and God’s greater community.  We will discuss where we belong within our communities – our family, our classroom, our school, our teams.  We will also listen to Aboriginal stories, look at art work and compare them to other stories and art works.  Finally, we will also be learning about natural and human made features in our environment.




Please have gym strip (shorts and shirt) in school by September 25, 2019.  Our P.E. days are on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays so the students need to make sure they have their gym strip either in a bag so they can change into it or underneath their uniform.
