Taking Action

Taking Action

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.

PE Games Reflection 3

PE Games Reflection 3

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.

We Turned the Lights On: Week 14

We Turned the Lights On: Week 14

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.

 

 

A Week of Collaborative Challenge

A Week of Collaborative Challenge

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.

 

P.E. Games Reflection

P.E. Games Reflection

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!

The Bookworm Within Me. Week 10

The Bookworm Within Me. Week 10

In class, Mr Alksne is reading ‘Run Pip Run!’. I think it is a very interesting story, but at the same time, Pip is also very poor, I would be super sad if my mom abandoned me when I was little.

I’m currently reading ‘The 13 story Treehouse’. I really like the form of this story, because it looks like it is drawn by hand, which makes it interesting.

In my Guided Reading group, we are reading a book called ‘Bridge to Terabithia’. I don’t really know what’s really happening because we’re only up to page 13.

Reading to me is relaxing and fun because once you get engaged into the story, it’s like going to a whole new world!

Book Week, ending week 9

Book Week, ending week 9

This week we visited the Shanghai Jewish Refugee’s Museum. I left wondering why did the Shanghai people help them.

Carl Gough, from Wales, visited us. The story I liked most was the tale of the 2 widows: Hannah Open-Palm and Matilda Tight-fist.

Book Week has come and gone. I will remember how happy I was when I was buying my books and how exited I was for today(Friday), when we dress up as book characters.

Games Reflection 1

Today we played t ball and badminton.

I liked badminton more because I only got one hit in the t ball game and didn’t even run to zone 1! Also, I was better at badminton and I enjoyed it.

I learnt that in badminton , the serves can only be underarm, not overarm.

I used the self management skills ATL(Approaches To Learning) today. When we were playing, I used my self management skills to get ready when I know that I’m going next round.
