JTA  Reports Live from the Curling Arena By: Jeremy


   As you have known the last month both grade 6 classes have went to the Fenlands rec center to curl. Our amazing instructors John and Brian have taught us lots of different skills like turning a rock clockwise and counter clockwise. We have played lot's of fun games, but that does not matter now because the grade 6 classes are going head to head in a epic tournament. For the fame the glory and best of all the bragging rights. 
  The tournament is now over. We had a amazing time and it was so much FUN. It was so much fun that I want join curling now.

Mindful Moments
By Keifer
Last week we started using stations each morning in order for us to start the day in a mindful way.  There are 6 stations and there are around 1 to 5 people allowed in each station. There is a zen garden, an active one, a puzzle one, a play dough one, a word search one and a 3D puzzle challenge. I like these because I get to start my day by being mindful. My favourite center is the active one because I like to get all my extra energy out. I can do jumping jacks, push ups and wall sits to start my day.  
It's good to be mindful because it calms down your brain and helps you think more clearly all day. Mindful means to be in the moment and staying calm.
