Exploring the Zoo ~ Grade 3&4

written by Aidan and Jackson
Our class went to the Zoo with the other grade 3&4 classes.  First we went to Asia and we saw a Red Panda.  The we saw the lions and tigers.  We saw camels, too.  The we walked to the Journey to Churchill and we saw some seals.  We saw polar bears and then we had lunch.  We saw Jim Slater and we got his autograph.  I got my Jets hat autographed.  We went in a helicopter.  We had fun!

On Friday, April 3rd, we went to the Zoo in Winnipeg.  We went in groups.  My favourite part about the zoo was seeing all of the animals.  I saw 3 polar bears and 1 seal.  The field trip was fun and exciting!

The polar bear playground is the only playground at the zoo.  It's a playground about the polar bears.  You climb to the top!  Lots of people played tag!  I explored the playground!

We went to the Assiniboine Park Zoo.  My favourite animal was the Red Panda.  They eat bugs and certain kinds of grass.  Two of the classes got to see a hockey player from the Winnipeg Jets team.  I also liked the Polar Playground.  And when we were heading back to the bus, I found a loose tile.  I thought "what is under it?"  Then we went back to school!

Journey to a Concert...

Our Spring Concert celebrated play, nature and the arts!  Each class worked collaboratively with Mrs. Isfeld through Music explorations to create, compose, write and choreograph their performance.  We were entertained with music, dance, sign language, instrumental compositions, drama and singing!  It was a true celebration of creativity and imagination....what a magical day!  Before each performance, Blaze and Amber shared what each classroom loved about nature and what they were most looking forward to in our Nature Playground.
The grade 3 & 4 choir had the honor and privilege of working with Ms. Kate Ferris.  They collaborated to create a stunning song about playing in encapsulates our journey to our new Nature Playground!  This was made possible by a Music grant from Manitoba Education.
A special thank you to Mrs. Isfeld for taking this journey with each of the children ~ the opportunity to create and perform is a true gift!  Thank you to everyone who helped out in any way ~ your kindness and dedication is appreciated!
Finally, a special thank you to our audiences for sharing in our love of the arts!

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. ~ Plato
