Today in class we got to do a blog post of our choice but it had to do with biomes so I picked Deserts. Deserts are very hot or cold so a animal has to have either a lot of fur or very little fur. There are also Deserts that are not cold or hot but it is very dry with no rain and barely any living organism could survive in it takes special plants or animal to live in. There is not much more I can talk about Deserts so bye!
In class this week we are learning about biomes and ecosystems. Each animal has it own biome to live in. The surface temperature and altitude will decide what type of biome a living organism will live in overtime an animal’s biome might change. There are tons of different biomes like forests biome,desert biome,grassland,aquatic biome and savanna biome. If an animal is not in the right biome the animal will probably die so as you can see a animals biome has to be perfect (I mean let’s get real here whoever heard of a polar bear on the desert). I am really enjoying what we are learning so I hope it continues for a little longer.
For a while now we have been learning about ecosystems for our new unit which is Sharing the Planet. Ecosystems are like different habitats that different animals have to live in. For example, camels don’t need much water so they can live in the open desert.They food the animals need are in the same habitat so they can live nicely but still might get hunted. So each animal has their own habitat like dolphins have ocean So it is important for an animal to stay in habitat or else those animals might go extinct.
On Tuesday we had sports day. Every year we have sports day because everyone wants the students to be healthy. Sports day is my one of my favourite days because all you have to do is play sports nothing else. At the beginning of sports day we select teams for the relay every house colour is in the race which is (red,green,blue and yellow). The way we select the teams is each house colour has a 200m race and the top 4 players from each colour has to be in the relay race. I was so happy I was the top 4 fastest green house colour in the grade. There is also a tug-of-war at the end for each house colour where everyone can compete in but we lost that. In the relay race we one and that was the first time we one in 2 years so we were very happy. During sports day there are mini events like dodgeball and capture the flag etc so the teachers assigned us in ten groups for the whole day so there were ten mini events. My favourite mini event was capture the flag what was hard about that was that it was hard working out who stay back and tag people and who tried to steal the balls from the other team. So that’s why sports day is my favourite school day of the year.
Yesterday,We continued doing our design project because in class we are learning about shapes,areas and perimeter. When we finish that we can go on Minecraft and build the house we did on the blueprint. When we are doing the blueprint we have to find the perimeter and area and we have to add a house that has all the rooms like kitchen,toilet,living room etc. We have to have windows so it has to be like a actual house.During the blueprint we have to make a symbol for different part of the house like the door and the windows.I chose to write a blog post about this because it was a lot of fun.I leaned more about perimeter area and designing stuff.
Last week we compared two ads of the same company to see which ad was better or more persuasive.There were two pictures of ads, a dragon ad which was spilled lego that formed a dragon and the other one was just blocks of lego. Personally my group thought the dragon ad was better because it stood out more and it was way more creative. I think the other ad was just really boring all it was is 3 blocks of lego pieces and some misspelled words. Neither of the ads used the persuasive techniques that we were learning such as band wagon invisible words.
Yesterday in class we learned different filming techniques.
The filming techniques we learned were High angle,low angle,close up shot,medium shot,long shot and different angles. The most important thing we did is different angles like high angle and the low angle. We did this because we are learning about ads and how to make an ad. I chose to make a blog post about this because I had a lot of fun and think it was a good learning experience.We also used iMovie to edit the ad we made, and so what I learned is how to use iMovie and how to create an ad.
Yesterday we finished our poster on Money raised is a puppy saved. We had 2 other choices which was Vote for me poster or no more plastic at the flower fair. We were in groups of 3,Me,Hajime,Takdeer and we worked really well together.
Our target audience were people who loved pets or were committed to help give pets a home. The techniques we used were using lot’s of color and pictures to interest the audience. We also put the price of all the things so in case they come and then they find out the price then leave. I think the audience will respond by buying the product then help give pets a home.
Yesterday we had our 4B spotlight. It was about the amazing musical race.(Basically the amazing race but musical version). It is a race and people have to complete challenges. The first team to complete all the challenges will get 100,000$. I think lots of things went well during the performance. We remembered our lines and remembered when to go on stage. We also made eye contact with the audience. We didn’t have too many mistakes but one of the biggest problems was to speak clearly to the audience because we were too quiet so they could not hear too well. What I enjoyed about this experience was how we really worked together and it was a lot of fun.
Yesterday for our grade party we went to Mega Box it has the biggest ice skating rink in hong kong called mega ice. My mom came to the grade party too it was really fun. Me and a bunch of my friend’s played tag on the ice but I was going really slow because I was using different skates but later my friend told me to put on hockey skates.Hockey skates were a lot better because I got a lot of bruises from the other pair of skates. We went there for around 3-4 hours,on the way back we had a lot of fun on the bus. On the bus I said by the end of the day I will have said 10 puns but I failed I only got 8. I had so much fun and wish I could go there again.
