We just went to One door to watch a video about stuff, yes stuff, everyday stuff. It showed us the process of our stuff from the beginning to the end. We learned a lot about where our products came from and how they got to us, this information informed us to be more cautious about what we buy and use. Knowing this information encouraged us to recycle, not buy as much and be responsible. I think it was important to show this video to others because I think a short video like this with lots of information could change peoples perspective impact them to make better decisions in their life.
We watched the movie screenagers, it’s about how addicted kids can be to their electronics! It made so many of us realise we could be living a better, healthier life. In the film it talked about a girl who wanted a phone so that she could be cool. I couldn’t relate to her because I didn’t want to have a phone to be cool, play games or do anything like that. I wanted a phone so I could set up meet ups with my friends for projects, call my parents, friends, and sometimes occasionally scroll through the gram. I think the behaviour in this movie was a bit exaggerated but I know there are still kids out there with this behaviour and that’ss why I think it was a good idea to make a movie reminding everyone!
Recently in math class we have learned about ratios and proportions! Today, we made our own ratios this is mine, for example there are 10 blue squares to 18 red squares!!
Recently, an artist in residence came, and what we are doing is running a fashion show!Today was our first workshop lesson, we learned about body types and proportion. We were split in groups of five people, then we picked a model, and that model is me. Our group went with a theme of alice in the wonderland more specifically the house of cards. Our ideas were a red dress thats poofy, with newspaper curled into flowers and cards stuck on the back. The back will have a long trail and the front will have a short cut! Those are our ideas. I learned that the bodies of models are usually more skinny with long necks and legs, I also learned something about society, it’s the fact that sometimes when someone doesn’t have the perfect figure they can be discriminated. i think that there should be a fashion show to go against those kinds of stereotypes like men can’t wear dresses.
Recently, we learned about Amnesty. It is a organisation that supports and fights for human rights. When I was listening to the presentation, I realised how similar this organisation was with our mini organisations. The first connection I made was the roles, like in our group, someone is the tester, someone comes up with new ideas, and someone does the hands on making work! These jobs are also used in that organisation. Both organisations are being organised from the inside, to make a difference to the outside! We also both have small actions that are very effective, which connects to on of our line of inquiry. This was and stil is a great learning experience!
Today was “International Library Day” this is the day where we will all come to school in our traditional clothes from wherever we come from. This year, instead of getting bookmarks, we got paper passports to stamp inside of, this year I didn’t get to go to many places, thats because we only had around 20 minutes. I would hope that next time we will get a full period because “International Library Day’ only comes once a year, and we wanna make the most out of it. I also think the parents should arrange the amount of time they can talk and ask questions because one of the stands took 7 minutes!Don’t get me wrong, I loved learning more about that culture, but after a while, it got kind of tiring. On the other hand some of the parents would just grab the passport, stamp it and your on your way. Overall it was very fun but also educational!
Yesterday was peace day,
I would like to start off by mentioning that I think that I think it’s exactly what this world needs. Nowadays, everybody is offended in some sort of way, whether it’s because of racism, religion, odd opinions or beliefs. Peace day, was the day everybody would try to be nice to one another, not easily get offended, and have a great day. One day I wish that peaceday could turn in to peace weeks peace months, or even peace years!
Hey everybody, this is a little piece of my thoughts on my first week of school.
today was the last day of school, and I really don’t know what to say, it seems like I just entered those classroom doors yesterday.I remember in the beginning of the year when I would be so eager to go on summer break, but as I got to know the incredible champions in my amazing class, I realised how hard it would be to say goodbye. As I look back at the year, as I reflect on all my actions this year, I realised how much i have changed, how much I have matured. A lot of this is from wonderful role models, I would like to thank my teacher, Mr. Brown, I wish I could give him more than a thank you, I would also like to thank my greatest friends, Audrey, Megan, Kayla, Sarah and Christie, they have changed my life majorly since the day I met them.
The only advice I can give you now, is live the moment you are in, enjoy where you are, and you will grow to love all the people around you, at least I did. Thank and appreciate everybody around you, the second you leave, I guarantee you will miss them.
As I carefully wrote everybody’s notes, I realised how important they are to me. When I walked out those doors, and said goodbye to my friends, the feeling of everything changing is so amazing, barely even being able to believe it was already the end of the year. The last thing I want to say to is love the champions.
