Today we have finished the rules and about to finish our power point.I am really exited to show me and my friends game, I think it will be really good to show what we are doing in PE and how are game is going. In my group is Me (Mounia), Bella & Irene. We are a very good group, we help each other when we need help and we all do different things to help the group, to work faster and get this game finished for the reveal. We are working are hardest to finish this game and to make it look really good and make sense. I am really happy for the last reveal.
Today in PE we were still making our game, in my group I have me, Bella and Irene, I think that we are doing well in making our game. Our game is a bit like “Capture The Flag” but we change it. We have worked very hard in this game and I am exited how it will pop out when we finish it, We are now making our powerpoint, the powerpoint is going very wetland we have finished at lest two slides but I think that we will be able to finish this very soon, I think it will come out really nicely. Today was a really good PE lesson with our group, I think we will nail this game!
During my student conference this week I learnt that I am doing my math right, I am also nearly done with the work I have to do for this week. I am planning to finish the literacy challenge – Should Children Be Allowed To Own Pets- and do a good job with it. I wonder if I will finish to this week. When I had the conference with Mr. Alksne I new that I would finish it because I have a lot of time left to finish it.
I think the roles and responsibilities of a government is to help the people in the country, maybe to give money to the poor. I think this because there are many governments in this whole world, they have to help many people, they also have a big role to do. Governments have to be very kind to one another but some governments are not kind at all.
Winter holidays are coming! To me this means to have fun and relax, to go to many different places and enjoy the holiday. I like the winter holidays because it is fun and it is a time where you can get away from school and spend more time with your family. Me and my family like to go to many different places, so I am going to enjoy that to come up.
Today in PE me and my group started to make our game, see how it was going to look like. Our group Bella, Mounia and Irene started making the rules. I think that we did a good job because we know how it will look like and also the rules. We are still updating the rules and the boundary.
I think that our group our skills are quite easy, so 4 and 6 graders can play this game. The team work in our group is a really important skill in our game because you need to work together a lot in the game we are making.
I think our group is working really well together because ewe know what we are all doing, we also know each others roles and responsibilities. I think we are going to be really good at making our game into one good one.
What is your group doing for installation?
Our group is doing a dot installation art work, so small things can always turn into big things. Whatever you make in small things they can most of the time turn into big things, no matter what.
Our process for installation has included dots, scissors, mirrors, pens, plastic and windows to help the reflection of the plastic with the dots, on the plastic, it might reflect the colours on the floor.
We want our visiting audience know that whatever you make that is small you can always make it into something big, or sometimes it won’t always turn into something big. If you believe in your self then you might actually get to turn it into a beautiful big art work. It doesn’t need to be made of dots, it can be made of other things to.
I have learnt to be creative and remember that you have to push your self higher, and always remember that art will never be finished until you know it is!
This week I worked with Sean, me, Yanchi and Koray on my collaborative challenge. Our migration story is “The Iraq War 2003-2011.
Next week, we present our Art Installations. I think that we are going to get this installation done because we are nearly done with our installation.
I’m happy it is Friday because we get to have a rest from school, we also get to finish our homework if we need to finish something off.
Something I want to share is that our class is learning about migration and how people move from one place to another, we are also unpacking our UOI challenge, working with other classes and sharing a migration story.
Today in PE, Mr. Murray told us to make a game by switching an old game to a new game. We came into groups, and tried our best to work as hard as we can, making a new game. My group is with Bella, Mounia(Me) and Irene. I think we worked really good as a group, because we have most of the rules. We also are still thinking how to make the game. Me and my group are doing “Capture The Flag” but with a twist to the game. In our game we are only allowed to have 8-12 players in the game and it has to finished in 3 more weeks to finish the game.`
In class, Mr. Alksne is reading, ‘Run, Pip, Run!’. It is very good, we have read a quarter of the book, it is very realistic and you can imagine it in your head. That’s how good it is!
I’m currently reading the book of ‘Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Sec by J.K Rowling’, I am reading the second book. It is interesting so far, I have never read ‘Harry Potter’ before so I am very happy to read it now.
In my Guided Reading group, we are reading ‘Bridge To Terabithia’. It is a good novel so far when reading with my Guided Reading group. It is the first novel that the class had read, I think that I will love to read this because I love to read and experience new books.
Reading is very relaxing for me, when I go to bed I read books I read them one after the other, I enjoy imagining what I read and make the story in my head. I love to read, possibly when I am bored or I have nothing to do and I finished my homework.
The link might not work if it does not work tell me.
This week we visited the Shanghai Jewish Refugee’s Museum. I left wondering, how did they feel when they left their country and tried to find a area to live so they can have a good life, and how did they feel when China let them into their country.
Carl Gough, from Wales, visited us. The story I liked the most was the story called Hannah open palm and Matilda tight fist, because it was very imaginative and very lovely to hear, it also had a nice sense of humor in the story, it was amazing. Many people really liked the stories that he made up by himself.
Book week has come and gone. I will remember all the fun we had, all the costumes I saw and what my friends were wearing. I will also remember the book week parade, the walk though (We walk though the hallways and we see other peoples costumes and others see our costumes, its to have fun). I will NEVER forget all the fun and what my friends were wearing for book week, also what we did. It Was Very Fun!!!!
