Grade 2s visit the Zoo

Top 5 Field Trip Moments!
Polar Playground: the video games, jumping on the icebergs
Butterfly Garden: all of the butterflies, we learned that their favourite food was sliced oranges and buttermilk
Lions and Tigers: the biggest cats in the world
Hudson the Polar Bear: he was sometimes silly and interesting to look at
Flamingos & Peacocks: because they can roam free, sticking out their feathers

Our Top 5 Field Trip Memories
We really liked the tigers.  When the tigers went to the shade they waved at me.  One tiger even had his tongue hanging out.
We loved getting our photo taken with Tubbs, the penguin.  The penguins were really cute when they were lying around.  Tubbs was enjoying swimming in the water.
We enjoyed checking out the lions!  Their paws are really big!  One of the lions was scratching their back with their paw.  Both lions were males.
When we went in the Discovery Centre the carpet pythons were wrapped around the branches and hiding in the corner.  There was a box full of snakes in the tree and all you could see were their tails hanging out!
We loved the Australian Outback.  We liked the kangaroos because one was jumping towards the water bowl.  The emus were cool.  An emu even came up to us!

2nd Annual SSES Super Run

written by Avery
SSES Blogger

We have Running club at SSES.  At the beginning, we ran inside for 3 weeks and it is on Monday and Thursdays.  After 3 weeks we got to run outside.  Mrs. Magnusson said to us "always try your hardest!"  She told us that 3 people from our running club would run at the Blue Bomber Relay Kick-Off on Wednesday, June 26th.  Luke, Taylor and Jordin's names were drawn to run!

On Friday, June 21st we had our Super Run around Vesturland.  Two laps around Vesturland was 2.6km; 4 laps was 5km.  Grade 1 and Grade 2 all made signs for every one of the running club members.  At the end, we all got popsicles, medals, cookies, bananas and juice boxes.  I love Running Club so much!!!
A big thank you to our local Sobey's for sponsoring us!  They provided each of the runners with popsicles, cookies, bananas and juice boxes following the race!
Thank you to our parent volunteers and SSES staff members who kept everyone safe on our running route!
Also, a big thank you to Mrs. Magnusson for dedicating her time to our running club.  Your love of running always inspired us to run our personal best!

Our amazing cheering section....thank you family and friends for supporting our runners!
