by the Grade 5 class
A few days ago, both of the Grade 5 classes and Mr. Chan, Ms. Newsome and Ms. Yorath want to Fort Langlay. We learned many new, cool and interesting facts, like that BC became part of Canada on November 19th, 1858, and how different families lived in different kinds of houses. Some of our favourite things were carrying fake hay bales, writing with a quill and ink well, and watching the blacksmith make a metal hook. We didn’t just learn, we also got to keep things that were made and we got to wear some old clothes. It was fun to take the ferry and to visit Fort Langley. It was an amazing experience and we would love to go again.
