- What were you expecting to learn from your Bridging Week experience?
Firstly , I want to know where class of my buddy is located. If you go to junior high school, it is difficult to find a class and it is very confusing because it is so tightly attached but I think I can memorize the way because I’m with Buddy tomorrow.
Secondly, I want to know about my teacher and friends well. Because I think school life would be more convenient if I knew more about my friends and teachers.
- What questions were answered for you as part of your experience?
Firstly, I asked about what do we learn in Korea. My buddy said we learn a discussion. Yesterday we read some pages then we shared our opinions. When we say our opinions it must have a basis. Saying basis be persuasive to speak a well-founded sentence. Of course I asked another question to her. It was about math. She said she learned a squared. I think it would be ok to learn because I’m learning that math.
- What questions remain unanswered for you?
She answered all of my question.
- What were some of your positive observations during your experience?
My positive observation was that my buddy answered all of my question and Minseo’s buddy bought a chicken nuggets to us and the middle school was more frilly than elementary school. In homeroom we can use our phone and there are lot to do for myself.
- Expectations for Bridging Week
On Thursday when I meet my buddy, I wish she is kind, and explaining English easily. Fortunately she is Korean so I can ask her some question comfortably.
- Middle School dreams and aspirations
The first thing that I want to do in middle school is going cafe with my friends buy some snack. Second is a do more ECA. I want do a badminton and oil art. Third is a eat a lunch in cafe.
I can remember that we went to Yanchang Lake. I made new friends in there and it was pretty good memory. My new friends said ‘Let’s eat dinner together’. I was very glad that friends said to eat dinner together. And we did lots of activities. It was funny.
- What will you miss from G5 experience
A good memory with my friends. Especially Minseo because she go to Korea this month. She was best friends to us. My friends helped me to do work and remote learning. I feel very thankful for them. Now we are going to secondary so I still want to be friendly
- What does graduation mean? For me…
I think the graduation mean from me is when we completed our grade, then we have a graduation party so we enjoy party, sharing food, and talking with friends. At least that day we just enjoy the graduation.
- an opportunity for mindfulness
If we do a mindfulness we need a quiet and good place then calm down to get some meditation because if we don’t found the good place to meditation it’s difficult to concentration so we have to found place unobstructed by people.
- Song recommendation: moving forwards?
I wish there is a K-Pop.
- Planning for Celebration of Learning
I’m still planning about it. There are many things to plan with and I just thinking about it that how to plan it. I’m wondering about graduation, and I thought that I need to plan more perfectly and correctly. I’m still planning, but I just adding something more and more.
This week Ms Fluty’s class came to our class and played our math game. Also they gave me some feedback about what I have to improve. They said they enjoyed game and it was simple game, but some are they don’t know how to play and need answer sheet. I think I was good at making instructions but lacking thing was that I didn’t make answer sheet.
Yesterday, we took a video about change. Last week and this week, we learned about changes and wrote a poem about changes. We wrote about physical changes, and social changes. After we finished our poem we read it out my friends helped me to take a video and I helped them too. Then we edited our video on iMovie.
Next week I will more work about my math game to make an answer sheet. Then people can check some questions about math.
- How do you feeling about poetry?
I feel about poetry is pretty funny thing. Most I enjoy reading poetry. Writing poetry is fun but sometimes it’s difficult because I have to match some last word. Most poetry express how they feeling and make people enjoy to read poetry because many poetry has rhythm.

We finished our planning. We use paint, spoon, cup, and domino etc. We have to make our Goldberg make others move. We bring materials to our home. I think our Goldberg will work well.
