The action I already took:
After learning about plastic around the world, I decided to avoid as much plastic as I could. At school, I used a spoon to eat my yogurt and I didn’t use straw. At home, I didn’t use straw to drink my drinks and I also convinced other people in my family to stop using straws.
The action i’m going to take:
I am going to sort trash into different groups; paper, plastic, fruit, batteries and other. And then I will put them in boxes.
My biggest achievement this week has been improving my writing and making it perfect.
HWOO collaborative inquiry has been very organized! Me and my group finished everything today, we’re only up to the extras now. Everything is going great!
We continue to challenge other grade 5 homeroom classes in our Friday well being sessions.Our secret strategies are choosing good agents and acting normal.
The best things about my winter holidays were cooking egg custards and going out with grandma.
This week has been awesome because I went to school and met my friends again.
If I were the world government, I would give higher wages to everybody and make everything more cheap.
I am looking forward to the weekends because my friend is coming to my house to play.
This week was a bit of a secret. My gift to my secret friend is a drawing that I drew. I wonder who will be my secret friend?
This holiday I look forward to going to TianJin and meeting my friends there.
Next year I will change nothing.
I think my school report will say that I am not bad at anything but I need to talk and speak more in class.
This week was a busy week with many fun and challenging challenges.
On Thursday we attended their Hour of Code. It was actually 40 minutes, but we call it the Hour of Code. Coding is woking with technology and working together.
On Friday Mr Alksne introduced a special event happening this week. It is called secret friends. Everyone has a secret random person to take care of. Throughout the week, you have to find ways to be kind to them and find out about that person. At Friday, we reveal ourselves and our gift we made that is not from a shop.
Today me and my group finally found a way to film and play our game. Playing our game was very helpful because this way, we know what parts are uncomfortable and what parts we can keep. We changed the kicking the ball while running to throwing the ball above your head while running. Then, after our presentation was complete, we played other people’s game. Those were fun too.
During my student conference this week I learnt that I need to be more part of the class share to others more of my ideas. I don’t really talk in class.
I think the role and responsibilities of a Government is to take care of the citizens and rule the country. They are the biggest roles in the country.
Winter holidays are coming! To me this means staying home and sleeping in everyday. I don’t think I am not going anywhere
Last Friday me and my group presented our installation artwork. It all went good. Many people came and looked at our artwork. We explained what it is and what it means. Our artwork was super successful!
Today we played our game and tested if it’s good and easy to play. Later we will present our game to the other people using technology. Our group didn’t play because we didn’t have enough players. But we didn’t waste our time either, we worked on our presentation that is a few weeks later.
Our game is for G4-6 and everyone will need a ball. Then choose a person to be the tagger. You run around while kicking your ball and hide from the tagger. If you are tagged you say “banana” and put your hands together above your head to wait for help.
This week I worked with Maxwell, Andrew and Will on my collaborative challenge. Our migration story is the Jewish people’s migration story.
Next week, we will present our Art Installations. Our group is me, Leya and Seppe. Our group theme is Contrast. Contrast is similar to comparison. I really like our art.
I’m happy it’s Friday. I am so ready for Monday!
A new unit is about to arrive! The central idea is ‘There are many ways to generate electricity and each method has an impact on the environment.’ . I wonder what it is about.
Today in P.E. we got into groups of 1, 2, or 3. I was with Rachel and Gahyun. Next we made our own games. Our game has to have team work, different skills, and rules. It also has to be 8-12 players in a group. So we made a game and named it the “banana” game. It’s named after a banana because after you get tagged, you have to put your hands together above your head like a banana and wait for help. We all agreed on this idea, and I really liked it!
