On Friday, we went to the gym and we did a game called secret agent dodgeball. In the first round we VS 5TB then we vs 5KN. We lost both and we became the second place. The skill was to try protect the secret agent and to tag the people who is out in one with other serval people so they won’t know who is the secret agent.
I think I improved being a communicator and teamwork because we talked a lot about how to do and who is it. We had teamwork because we worked a group and we needed to have teamwork when we need to save people.
I was a thinker because when I was the secret agent I thought lots how I can save people by not letting them notice and how I can not get hit by the ball.
The best thing was that I had lots of fun playing and the worst thing was that some of the people cheated in the other team like even if they are not the secret agent they save people. The interesting part was that the third place and the fourth place was the same as last time basketball.
Why can only 5TB choose what game we are doing?
Chinese New year dance ( 野狼disco )
Before Chinese new year we have a assembly and dance by grades. In G5 we are doing the dance called 野狼disco. Every Chinese time we dance and practice a lot of time.
I think I improved on dancing because I didn’t know how to dance and thought it was very hard dance but now I know how to dance and think the dance is not hard.
I think the IB connection is thinker because I think how to dance and were my place to dance was.
The best thing was that the dance was easy and it was a bit fun to do, the worst thing was that I didn’t like the dance, the interesting part was that the place were we dance was interesting because normally the Chinese teacher says to not be in lines but we did in lines.
At Friday, we went to the theater and there was the 4PP assembly and they performed lots of things for us like unit skit, quizzes and at last they had a song and we went back.
I think I improved on being still and being nice to the people who was performing.
I think I improved on my caring because I was listening what they were doing.
The best thing was that I liked the performance and it was really fun to watch. The worst thing was that some of the performance I couldn’t understand and I couldn’t see them because we were in the edge of the seat. The intresting part was that they changed the play abit different to the real one.
Why did they choose to do the three little pig and the gingerbread man story?
At Friday, for PSPE/Welbeing we did Basket ball Battle of the gom erooms. And we battle with homerooms and we first vs 5TB then we need to VS the Winner VS Winner And Losers Vs Loosers. And We won and 5KN was second, 5TB was third and 5GA was the last place.
I think I improved on communoicator because I cheer a lot with my friends.
I think my IB connection was Communoicator because I cheer a lot and try to let 5KF win.
I think the best think the best thing was that our class won the game and we got 20 points all together. The worst thing was that I didn’t like basket ball so it wasn’t really fun. The intresting part was that the rules change between the judges.
I went back to Japan Osaka and I saw my family and played a lot with my cousin and with all my family. I went to Japan at 11/15.
I improved on being patient because I waited in the plane and when I was lining up to go on the plane.
I think I was caring because I was caring to my family and friends that I met in Japan.
The best thing was that I met my friends that I didn’t see for a long time, and that I went to USJ/Universal Studio Japan with my family. The worst thing was that I was tired on the plane so in the very first day I couldn’t have fun. The interesting part was that when I was at the plane there was more Foreigner then Chinese people.
We did the second time of Greatest Show On Earth, but this time it was 5KN to perform. We had it in the Friday in the afternoon. We had lots of different kind of performance like, Singing, Dancing and even all the Grade5 was performing the dance/song called the Nutbush.
I think I improved on being quiet and sitting still and being respectful to the others who was being brave and performing.
I think my IB Connection is Caring because I was quiet and was respecting to others like who was trying to see that performance and for the people who was brave to perform.
The best thing was that it was all very good and very fun to watch and every performance was really good. The worst thing was that the some of the Grdae4 was being noisy and rude and even booing to the people who was performing and being brave. The interesting part was that the performance was really good and trying there best to make it the best performance.
Why did they do Greatest Show On Earth?
Why did we do the Nutbush dance?
Why did 5TB try to do the Nutbush dance not the other kind of dance?
Hour of code
In Tuesday at the very morning we went to the Media Center and went to do coding activities. First we sit in random desk and do some of the coding activities on the iPad then we split into groups and did some activities that the people set up for us. I was with the group with Me, Lily and Ela. We did the Bebop activities and try to code it to the place you want it to got to. For the iPad I did a game that was I think called the flappy and try to code it threw the objects.
I think I improved on my coding skills because last year when I did it I couldn’t do really good a coding and got confused but this year I could do it.
I think my IB Connection was that I was a Thinker because I thank a lot how to code the Bebop.
The best thing was that it was really fun to do and was fun to see the new material to do coding. The worst thing was that the Bebop was still a bit hard to code. The interesting part was that I didn’t know that we do Hour Of Code in our age.
Today we made the video and connect it to the iMovie and made a video. We explain every steps that we wrote on the computer and record it, then we show how to play the game by actually playing it and record it to the video, after that we put in iMovie and perform it next week Friday.
HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN INSTALLATION ART TO GRADE4 ARTIST?
INSTALLATION ART IS AN ART THAT IS CREATED CONSTRUCTED, OR INSTALLED ON THE SITE WHERE IT IS EXHIBITED.
SUMMARIES THE PROCESS YOUR GROUP WENT THROUGH AND YOUR INSTALLATION ARTWORK?
FIRST, WE THOUGHT OF PLASTIC AND WE THOUGHT OF ANIMALS AND WE PLANNED TO HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT ANIMALS THAT HAVE LOTS OF PLASTIC AND RUBBISHES. THEN WHEN WE MADE THE ARTWORK, WE THOUGHT IT WAS TOO HARD TO MAKE LOTS OF DIFFERENT KIND OF ANIMALS SO WE THOUGHT OF FISHES BECAUSE LOTS OF FISHES EAT PLASTIC AND WE EAT FISHES AND THAT IS BAD FOR FISHES AND US. THEN WE THOUGHT WE WANTED TO LET PEOPLE JOIN TO OUR ARTWORK AND THEN WE THOUGHT THAT WE CAN LET PEOPLE FOLD ORIGAMI FISHES AND PAINT THE BOARD LIKE THE OCEAN. AND AT THE LAST WE PUT SOME EXAMPLE OF FISHES AND THEN WE THOUGHT OF THE NAME CALLED LET’S TAKE CARE FOR OUR OCEAN.
What advice would you give to Grade4 artist next year?
A. I would give them they should make the artwork not too big.
What did you learn in the installation art unit that will help you do your best work in the PYP exhibition?
We did PSPE at Friday afternoon like usual and instead of playing out we played in our four class. Lots of game was cooperative, we moved in classes and we first went to Miss. Naisara and there we played a game that has trees and rabbits. Next we went to Mr. Bells’s room and we played a game lime we had rope and rubber band and we needed to think how can we make a round container in to the basket with that material by not touching it. Next we went to Mr. Alksne’s room and we have 5 Ping-Pong balls and there is a cup into a triangle and we need to try get the Ping-Pong ball into the cup, if we dance while we throw or wit for a turn you get a extra point and who ever has the most points wins. At the last we went to our homeroom, Miss. Flutey and we did a game called word association and then we played here I sit.
I think I improved on lots of new skills and I think I also improved on my cooperation skills.
I think the IB Connection is that it is the communicator because we did lots of cooperating games and we communicate a lot how should we complete this task.
I think the best thing was that it was really fun to do all the games. The worst thing was that some of the game was really difficult and couldn’t understand some of the parts. The interesting part was that there was lots of games that I didn’t know.
Why do we only have PSPE on Friday?
Christmas tree lighting
We went to foyer at Friday and we sing some song and fake Santa came on stage and sing together. We sang We wish you a merry Christmas, Jingle bell, Turn off that noes, Santa Claus is coming to town. We Sang lots of different song that we know and what we didn’t know.
I think I improved on lots on the songs because we sing most of the song in G2-3. It was really hard to sing some of the part.
I think the IB Connection was Communicator because we sang lots od songs and talked what will happen with friends before it started.
The best thing was when the tree lights up and when we sing, the worst part was when the tree lights up it was really small light and didn’t get a lot of surprise, I was interested on the Santa Claus also singing, it was really easy who it was because it had glasses.
At art we made a piece of artwork. I was with Yena and Bella. We worked about a month on one piece of artwork. We presented to G2-5. Lots of people came to our artwork and made different kind of fishes, Some people drew some people fold and some people cut.
Next time I can improve on teaching the students how to make it because I couldn’t do some fishes and people was struggling. But later we figure it out and stick it on the wall.
Thinker because I think how to make origami. I also think that I was a risk-taker because I needed to teach how to make what I don’t know and needed to explain what do we do in this artwork.
The best thing was that it was fun to make things and teach how to make origami fishes. The least favorite thing was that when it is the time to go back to classroom and go back we needed to clean all the mess up. The interesting part was that lots of people came to our artwork and lots of people could do origami fishes.
Why did we do installation art?
How much people came to visit our artwork?
We discus about lots of things and Miss. Flutey read to us a sentence, and if we strongly disagree with the sentence we go near the window if we strongly agree we go to the other side of the room if you are in the middle like don’t disagree or don’t agree you go in the middle of the class.
Next time I think I could improve on thinking more about the sentence more deeply.
Thinker because I think if it is a disagree or agree or just In the middle. Communicator because we needed to share idea with people next why did you choose to be in this place.
The best thing was that it was fun to listen to people saying why they choose that place. The worst thing was that it was really hard to choose were should I go to. The interesting part was that there was lots of different people choosing different things.
Today we made a game and we made a script to speak what kind of rule and what kind of game it is. This game is available for G4-6. Today we worked the most in the rules and make it more specific to the people who want’s to play. We have boundary that is a quarter of the field and we have 6 specific rules. We have no equipments to use playing with us, we just need people to play with so if we have no equipments we can just play it anywhere we want. Our group is working really good and sharing Idea’s.
