JU-B Weekly Note

Happy Friday!

A short and sweet note for this week since we got to see you all so recently for conferences. Thank you for coming in to meet with us. We really appreciate your partnership.

We’ll give you the (literal) bullet points for this week. Ask your child to fill you in on the details!

  • Reading about the final six gods and goddesses of Mt. Olympus, coming up with symbolic representations for the the deities we’ve read about so far, and using these to make a family tree
  • Beginning the revision of our first Hero Paragraph
  • Finishing the revision and holding a writing celebration for our Personal Narrative: Snapshot Moment!
  • Enjoying our first full group day at Awbury Arboretum

Next week, we’ll be moving on to the minor gods and goddesses from Greek mythology. We’ll start our books groups and finish the revision for our Hero paragraph. 

Please note that all of Junior Unit will be at Awbury Arboretum for the next two weeks. In order to make sure that we are able to work on our winter science curriculum. we will be going to the arboretum on Monday, November 9 and Monday, November 16 in addition to our regular Thursdays.

Thanksgiving is coming up. The Junior Unit will be making brownies as their contribution to the feast. We request that students bring in a mixing bow and wooden spoon before November 20th to help with the mixing. Please label them clearly with your names so that we can return them to you. Thank you for your help with this matter.

Enjoy the weekend and get ready to gear up for another big week in JU-B. We’ve got a lot planned and are eager to work hard!
