While visiting Seahurst, the Coho class helped the Toadstool Fairy prepare the forest for winter! We learned about how and why trees get ready for colder weather, and then spread some winter fairy dust to help!
The Kokanee class used the wood chip pile in math, calculating how many buckets it will take to move the whole pile to the playground. They took turns beautifully, tallying and shoveling.
The Coho class had fun practicing writing letters with a brush and cornstarch on festive fall pumpkins. It feels fun on hands and fingers too!
The Chinook class embraced their own uniqueness by envisioning, designing and illustrating their own dream house, inspired by the book, The Big Orange Splot.
After school chess club participants were introduced to Chesslandia and new chess strategies to improve their game.
The Bridge School students have enjoyed being back in the classroom this fall and experiencing full days of learning, collaboration, creativity and outdoor exploration. We continue to use our outdoor learning spaces as well as ventilated indoor learning spaces throughout the day.
We regularly use nature as our classroom at The Bridge School. Our teachers use emergent curriculum, guided by student interests to create meaningful experiences for all ages.
The Kokanee class added candy to different substances, made predictions, used observation skills and recorded their findings.
Each week, students gather in our Outdoor Learning Space to explore, grow and build during our Creative Enrichment classes.
To meet the challenge of teaching and learning during these unusual times, our Bridge School teachers and staff have created outdoor learning spaces and opportunities for small groups. Students have enjoyed working with their teachers for short in person classes in our open air classrooms, in addition to experiencing zoom classes with their entire class.
