Health – Growth & Development

June 2, 2015 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We will be starting our unit on Growth and Development this week. The topics we will be covering are:

-Relating the changes at puberty to the reproductive organs and their functions

-Applying a problem solving/decision making process to address issues related to friends, peers and family relationships.

I believe that you as parents/guardians play the most significant role in the formation of your children’s values and behaviours related to the human growth and development. This unit offers you the chance to discuss the classroom lessons and consider them from the point of view of your own family and beliefs.

The lessons are being taught using the 1998 Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum. If you do not wish your child to participate in these lessons, please send this request in writing so alternate arrangements can be made.

International Day

Several students in our class and other classes have been working very hard creating Power Points/Prezis and activities for their country. The school will travel around in their house teams (wear your house colour) and visit various countries to learn about their culture. I am very proud of all the hard work and dedication that students have shown going to meetings and completing their tasks. This will surely be an exciting day for all.
