Carbonear stu­dents en­joy Win­ter Car­ni­val ac­tiv­i­ties

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

Stu­dents at Davis Ele­men­tary al­ways look for­ward to the Win­ter Car­ni­val in late Fe­bru­ary.

The Win­ter Car­ni­val is a busy time of the year for our school be­cause it is nor­mally in the same week as the 100th Day of School.

The Win­ter Car­ni­val has many ac­tiv­i­ties up to 20 min­utes long. Some ac­tiv­i­ties are as a class and some with an­other class or the whole school.

The first ac­tiv­ity that my Grade 4 class did was to build a snow sculp­ture. We worked hard to find a good place to build a huge life­sized di­nosaur!

When my class had our di­nosaur carved out, we put some paint in a used spray bot­tle to dec­o­rate our sculp­ture.The Grade 1s made pen­guins at the front of the school and the other Grade 4 class made a long green snake. Our class won!

The next ac­tiv­ity for my class was Tug of War with the two other Grade 4 classes. The first round was 4J vs. 4N, then 4H (my class) vs. 4J, then 4N.

Af­ter the classes went against one an­other we had boys vs. girls. Twenty min­utes passed be­fore we knew it.

Then it was time for the Res­cue Re­lay with the Grade 1s at the field be­side the school.

For the Res­cue Re­lay all Grade 4s make two lines about 20 feet away from the Grade 1s who had done the same. Then the Grade 4s go in pairs with a slide to pull a Grade 1 across to the Grade 4s. When they get back, they tag the next pair of Grade 4s who re­peat the steps.

Since we were al­ready with the Grade 1s, we went on to the Card­board Ski Re­lay. The Ski Re­lay is like the Res­cue Re­lay but with card­board skis and we were about seven feet away from the Grade 1s.

At the end of the day, we passed out card­board sleds for the school to share and we kept a sled for our­selves and went to the snow bank to go slid­ing.

When we were done, we lined up to go in­side to have some hot chocolate in the cafe­te­ria.

Then the teacher made us happy when she ended the day with: No Home­work!
