Ms. Perlmutter’s Grade Six class recently had a Poetry Slam competition. Rachel H performed her poem and she was selected as the class winner and Zachary T. was given honourable mention. Poetry themes were inspired by Black History/Culture, as well as the poets heard that Friday afternoon at Follow the Drinking Gourd.

Grass Has Been Grass

By Rachel H

Grass has been grass
For centuries past
All the same
All the same
In every way

What if grass
Wasn’t grass
In the way that we see it
Completely different
And we wouldn’t know

What if each single blade
Had a mind inside it
What if each single blade
Had feature to define it

What if each had a name
A profession to live by
We wouldn’t know
Why would we?

Because we’re high and mighty
Kings to the eye
We wouldn’t care to find out
Their
Names
Looks
Mind
Or life

All caught up in our own
But what if to them
All people
Are people
And always have been

Bathurst Street
By: Zachary T

On Bathurst there’s corn soup to eat,

it’s a memory from the street.

It uses an African recipe,

it’s a memory from the street.

It’s where all the hip-hop grows,
And throbs aloud throughout the globe.

People have traveled thousands of miles,

it’s a memory from the street.

A bookstore for the old or a child,

it’s a memory from the street.

From Jamaica to the cold,

it’s a memory from the street.

We remember the lots and lots of things that we have gained.
On Bathurst there are sacrifices that shall never be in vain.

And so my friends let’s never forget

the memories from the street.

Sheldon Recount
By Micaela C.

The day we arrived at Sheldon Outdoor Education Center, we were first introduced to the staff, unloaded the bus and ate our litter-less lunches.  After eating, we set off to our different group activities.  That day, we did one of three adventurous activities: Native Games, Orienteering and a Digital Photography Hike.  When we returned to the main building, we played a group game, sort of like Octopus.  After dinner, we did a night program. The night was cloudy but the moon was bright.  We did a solo, maze-type thing in the woods.  We had to follow a thread into the forst to make sure we didn’t get lost where Mr. Anton was waiting in the trees to scare us.

On the second day, another activity was added to the roster called Web of Life.  The group program was a game of catch the jerseys and the evening program was an exhausting and lively Sheldon-version of dodge ball.

I think the best part about Sheldon was being active outdoors so much of the time, like having gym every day, almost all day! Also, in every game we played, there was a lesson to be learned.  For example, in Native Games, we played a game called Seal-Nose.  Another game required a stick to be placed on someone’s open palms, then dropped at any time; the objective was to catch the stick.  A third memorable game was Knee Tap.  All of these games tested your reflexes and hand-eye coordination.  These skills were mostly used for hunting and fishing.  Hand-eye coordination and quick reflexes were essential survival skills for Aboriginals many centuries ago.

Another favourite activity was the Digital Photography Hike.  We learned how to take photos from different perspectives, like aiming downwards or angled upwards.  Orienteering improved our mapping skills and taught us about scales and how to position a map.  Finally, the game Web of Life was special and taught us about the food chain while running around in a fast-paced competition.

Overall, Sheldon was lots of fun and I hope the future Grade Sixes enjoy it.
