September has been an exciting month for us at R.G Sinclair Public School. We have so many returning faces as well as many new faces this year. It has been so wonderful seeing how the children have bonded with each other, and how they are sharing all the fun things we do here at FCCC!
Lots of Science and Technology activities occurring at FCCC- Cataraqui Woods. Children have been exploring speed and velocity and got to test their theories at our Annual Race Day. Children were excited to race their creations made out of recyclable materials. On the same day as our race, we were fortunate to meet “Lydia”, the World Champion Robot. The children were amazed to see Lydia in action. After the demonstration, we were able to meet the inventors and see how their plans literally came to life.
At FCCC Welborne we love to build and create with our hands. This month we have been hard at work creating our 'Tilted Towers' world. We used foam board, cardboard, moss, small pebbles, oil pastels, popsicle sticks etc. We also used melty beads to create miniature versions of ourselves. We used them as characters to explore our built world. We also made items out of melty beads like pizzas, toilets, chairs and flowers. We made houses, stores, a school and a community garden for our people to live and work in.
At FCCC Centennial our creative arts activity ‘accidentally’ turned into growing potatoes. While cleaning up from our potato stamp activity, some of the children suggested that we should compost the potatoes. This prompted research about composting and we found that we may be able to actually grow potatoes.
All our programs are designed to fit your child's needs for fun, education and safety. We have structured each environment to provide an atmosphere as much like home as possible.
If you have any questions regarding a specific idea or concern, please feel free to contact the individual program.
