A shadow is a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface. They are made when an object blocks light.

You need three things to make a shadow:
1. a form of light
2. something to block the light
3. a surface for the shadow to fall on

Shadows can change their size. As light moves towards the object, the shadow becomes larger. As light moves away from the object, the shadow becomes smaller.

Hiaku Poems

“Haiku” is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

Here are my poems

Spring is here today
The flowers are blossoming
Down on the green grass

Things are everywhere
Winds are blowing them away
Rough, raging, mean winds

Science goes KABOOM!
Some chemistry won’t hurt much
Everyone knows this

Cats, dog, birds, horses
Everyone loves pets so much
Be good and adopt

You like basketball
I like basketball a lot
Everyone can play

Montmorency Leadership Day

Yesterday all the Grade 5 students went on a trip to Montmorency Secondary College. We were all split up into coloured groups and I was in RED! In our groups we had two student leaders from Monty taking us to each activity.

Throughout the day we went to ten activities were we had to use different strategies to complete them including, Initiative,                    Co-operation, Teamwork and lots more.

I really enjoyed yesterday and I think my fellow Grade 5 students enjoyed it as well.
