Well, this week was one day shorter (yay) because of a typhoon 8. And that was really awesome, because I used that time to get creative… and I made this:
Oh, the fun of holidays!
Anyways, this week we had two summative assessments. One was English, and the other was Humanities. I’m pretty confident that I did well on them because I did practice in advance and I tried my best.
Our summative for English was actually on the book The Hunger Games, which, I’m sure you’ve all read (if not, GO BUY A COPY NOW). Well, we had to analyse parts of the book and movie, and then write a PEE paragraph on each one. And yes, that is how you spell a PEE paragraph. It stands for Point, Evidence (or example) and Explain. It’s pretty straight foreword stuff.
For Humanities on the other hand, that was a little more difficult. For me anyways. It was a Crit A. test, which is knowledge and understanding. Basically that means we get a ton of information to memorise (yay) so… typically if you revise and practice you’ll do fine. This test was all on types of settlement patterns, the burgess model and why people settle where they do. We’re actually still not done with this unit.
It’s actually pretty interesting, even though at first, I didn’t exactly see the point in learning about settlement patterns. Now, I can pretty much look at the geographic location of somewhere and have quite a few guesses as to why it’s there, what it is and what it might have in it.
Oh yeah, in Science, we’re starting our summative parachute lab. It’s pretty obvious from the title, but we’re making parachute, dropping them from a height and find the time it takes to hit the floor. Pretty fun stuff.
Well, that’s it for now. :D Bye!
