Today I’m talking about proud things and my favorite things from this week as it says on the title. First I just want to mention that we started to learn minecraft and I thought it was really fun and also one of my favorite things I did this week! I also think another favorite thing was that we started a reading program and we had a reading tree to help us and I also learned a new word which is “schema”. It means that something from the book that relates to you or you can relate to. Another meaning is that you can remember something in your life from the story. I’m also proud that Kwok (Victoria) told me that I was pretty good at math this week and usually I do pretty bad but yeah! Another thing that I’m proud of is that I read quite a lot this week and I’m very proud!
I know this was a very short post and I’m sorry but I guess I have to say bye since it’s the end of the post!
HI everybody! Today my post is about all my HL that we did with Ms.Laura! So the latest HL I didn’t finish the math part so don’t mind that! HEEHEE!
4E’s Home Learning Grid
This home learning grid will be due on Friday, 20th January Please complete all the boxes.
This is the one for this week!
Math: (due on Monday, 23rd January) For this week we are going to revise multiplication at home. As we talked about in class, we are going to practise word problems using the RUCSAC method. Please complete the sheet given to you in class and show your working out on the sheet and hand it in hard copy.
Reading Keep reading the book you started last week or choose a new book. Your focus for reading this week should be write a persuasive review of your book. Why should people read it or not read it? What is interesting about it? Please write one to two paragraphs and hand it in hard copy.
UOI: Have a look all around you…take photographs of advertisements you see or have a look online and find advertisements that catch your eye. Print those advertisements, and bring them into class. Or if printing is difficult, place the advertisement images on a Google Doc and upload them into your Home Learning folder.
Action: Make time to prepare for your Chinese New Year activities next week. If you are in a performance, practice or if you are engaged in any other activities, take the time to prepare for those. Including getting your Chinese Traditional clothes ready for DDD week!
This is the first one that Ms.Laura made when she was here!
4E’s Home Learning Grid
This home learning grid will be due on Friday, 6th January Please complete all the boxes.
Math: (due on Monday, 9th January) This week we are exploring and learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We are also looking at angles in shapes. Have a look around your home and find as many 2d and 3d shapes as you can. For example, a table. What 2d shapes could a table be? Consider why the object is a certain shape and not another? For example, would it be better if a door was a circle? Record your findings in either a Google Slide or Google Doc or on paper. You will need to draw the object or take a photo if you are using Google Slides or Docs, and name what shape it is, if it is a 2d or 3d shape. Make sure you spell the names of shapes correctly. Try to find at least 5 objects. You might find an object outside your house too if you like!
Choose a book from class or at home that you would like to read this week. Choose a character from the book that you really like and reflect on all the reasons why you like this character. You can make notes on your reflections if you want to. During Book Club on Friday we will focus on persuading others to like the character as much as you do. This is a short week, so you don’t need to finish a whole book but try to aim to read three evenings this week for 20 minutes each evening.
Geronimo Stilton, Field Trip to Niagara Falls
Geronimo Stilton, My Name is Stilton, Geronimo Stilton
Geronimo Stilton, Four Mice Deep in the Jungle
Geronimo Stilton, All Because of a Cup of Coffee
This week we started our Unit of Inquiry on the Media. We are looking at how advertising can influence our perspective or persuade us. In the link below, are 5 of the top Christmas Videos of 2016 in the UK. Choose one of the five and complete the See, Think, Wonder activity.
The five advertisements are:
John Lewis, Very.Co.UK, Morsons Makes It, TK Maxx, and Marks and Spencer. Enjoy these are great advertisements! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHvSVnRRcg0
Focus on Organisation and Independence:
It’s the first week back at school after our Winter Break. Be sure to take action at home by asking yourself each evening:
Did I prepare my bag for school? Yes/No
Did I do my home learning without
needing reminding? Yes/No – Kindof
Did I set my own alarm clock? Yes/No
Do I get to bed early enough? Yes/No – Kindof
Do I make sure to eat breakfast? Yes/No
See Think Wonder!
I chose the 5th video (the first clip).
A little girl
raccoon/skunk (not sure)
I think the dad was making the trampoline for the girl. Maybe he was making the trampoline because the girl wanted a trampoline for christmas.
I think when the dog was sitting in the living room he/she saw the animals jumping, so he/she got inspired and so the next morning he ran to try jumping on the trampoline he thought it was fun. While that was happening the girl was about to go on the trampoline but instead the dog went first, so now the parents and the girl were really confused.
I wonder how and why did the animals (foxes and racoon/skunk) go on the trampoline to jump on.
I wonder why the little girl wanted a trampoline.(if I was correct)
If I wasn’t correct, then I wonder why the dad was preparing a trampoline.
Why did the dad put a bow onto the trampoline after he was done preparing the trampoline.
My first shape is a tissue box. I chose a tissue box because it had a simple shape. This tissue box is a Rectangular Prism. You can also just call it a 3D Rectangle but it is more proper to say Rectangular Prism. This is basically a rectangle if it was 2D. If a tissue box was the shape of a circle it wouldn’t be bad and inconvenient..
Speaking of circles, the second shape is my ball! I chose this ball because I like football and I thought it would be a good connection. This 3D shape is called a Sphere, there are no vertices in a circle, ball, or sphere. If was a 2D shape then it would be a Circle. If ball was a different shape then it would be bad because it wouldn’t roll because the vertices.
The third shape is a container that is a cylinder. A cylinder is made of 2 circles and a long Rectangle. The Cylinder is basically a Circle and Rectangle as a 2D shape.
This is the second one!
4E’s Home Learning Grid
This home learning grid will be due on Friday, 13th January Please complete all the boxes.
Math: (due on Monday, 16th January)
We have been looking at angles in shapes: right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles and reflex angles. These angles can also be found everywhere outside of school. For this week, try to find as many angles as you can, either at home or wherever you may go during this week. This is what you will do:
Predict which angle you will see the most. Right? Acute? Obtuse? Reflex?
Draw the angle you found. Write down where you found it. You don’t have to take a picture of the object you found.
Please do this home learning on paper, using a pencil and a ruler. Hand it in hard copy.
Keep reading the book you started last week or choose a new book. Your focus for reading this week should be on the main character. What brings the character alive? Can you find describing words which describe how the character: Speaks?
Looks? Describing words can be adjectives like angry, loud, bad OR adverbs like quickly, slowly. You can organise your work like this: Speaks Moves Smells Feels Looks
Slowly quickly awful happy ugly
This week we have been looking at persuasive techniques and tools in Advertisements. Find an advertisement either online, or take a photo of one you see outside your home, or even an advertisement you might find in your home. When you have chosen the advertisement, try to find persuasive techniques and tools that it uses. For example, does it have Buzzwords? A logo?
As we decided as a class to have a fundraiser for Plastic Free Seas, find out all you can about Plastic Free Seas. You might want to start here: http://www.plasticfreeseas.org/ What does this organisation do? What is their goal? What is its work? Why is it important?
This organization is helping the seas to have no plastic and it also helps the animals to keep their habitat good and peaceful… Their goal is to make sure there is no plastic or rubbish in the seas. I think it is important to have Plastic Free Seas because when no one stops plastic polluting then one day our sea will just be plastic and nobody can swim on the beach, and not only that, animals will continuously get killed because of us. So we all have to recycle and not pollute!!
Pacy is back! The beloved heroine of The Year of the Dog and The Year of the Rat has returned in a brand new story. This summer, Pacy’s family is going to Taiwan for an entire month to visit family and prepare for their grandmother’s 60th birthday celebration. Pacy’s parents have signed her up for a Chinese painting class, and at first she’s excited. This is a new way to explore her art talent! But everything about the trip is harder than she thought it would be–she looks like everyone else but can’t speak the language, she has trouble following the art teacher’s instructions, and it’s difficult to make friends in her class. At least the dumplings are delicious…
As the month passes by, Pacy eats chicken feet (by accident!), gets blessed by a fortune teller, searches for her true identity, and grows closer to those who matter most.
This is not my writing, it is just from a website.
Hi guys!! Today I am going to type about the 2 most important Think Marks! Some you guys might not know what a Think Mark is so take a picture of the Think Mark.
This is the Think Mark picture!!———-
We used it for the book club book!
I think the first most important think mark is the “Important Part” because then your teacher knows if you actually what the story is. *
The second most important think mark is the “Funny Part” because it’s always nice to have something to laugh at in a story! LOL
Thank you and I hope you learned something! If you have any questions please write in the comments! Also tell me two of your FAVORITE (not IMPORTANT think mark) think mark!
Math is everywhere. Everywhere you go, there’s math!
Today’s post is about H.L. Today we were testing what would fall first, the tennis ball or golf ball. Me, Maya, Zamaira, and Shannon were partners and we started of by measuring the golf ball. The main focus is about what was working well and what wasn’t.
What Wasn’t Working Well:
*we didn’t finish the challenge
*non of the weights were as equal as the golf ball
*we didn’t test the tennis ball yet
What Was Working Well:
*no one was fighting-cooperating
*everybody having fun
*no one excluded-all had a job
Everybody like the idea of the test and was having fun. I hope you enjoyed this post and please comment for stars and wishes! BYE!!!!!
I am very sorry if I hadn’t done a blog post for long time but now that I am free why not do a post?
Today I’m going to talk about Pancakes and Pyjama day!! This Friday is Pancakes and Pyjama day and a lot of students especially new students are very confused what to do and irritated when the teacher is busy, so they wait ’till the teacher is free but then they forget.
First of all it is NOT DDD at all. Instead you don’t have to pay but you get pancakes, sausages and some veggies for lunch! If you want to do it you wear a pyjama or wenzy to school and you also bring a teddy bear but only one, if you’re wearing you P.J’s you don’t have to have pancakes for lunch but you have to pay for the lunch. The luch is only $35.
If you are not interested you don’t have to do anything at all and just wear your uniform or PE. Also if you are in my class we will still have swimming so also bring your swimming gear and stuff. They don’t make special planets but they still have syrup!These are some wenzies/onesies but there are way more wenzies than that!
Anyways my wenzy is a UNICORN! I hope you enjoyed and please comment if I didn’t mention something!
On Thursday, Oct 27th we went on a field trip to the Hong Kong Museum! At first I was like “ Aren’t museums like BORING!”😳 but then once I went to the museum I was like “ This is going to be AWESOME!!”😃
Ok so my topic was the Japanese Occupation🇯🇵! We learned a lot of things such as, the British army helped HK when the Japanese army tried to Occupy HK.
Before we went to the field trip we wrote questions to answer. The first question was:What was HK like during the Japanese occupation? It was devastated,chaotic, and miserable.
The next question was: What was the impact of the Japanese occupation? Rice, salt, sugar etc… were rationed and a lot of foodstuff were extremely scarce.
The third question is : How long did Japan occupate HK? For 3 years and eight months!
The second last question is: Why did Japan invade HK? Because they want to be very powerful.
The last question is: When did Japan leave HK? Japan left August 15th.
Ok will that was all my questions and I hope you learnt a lot of things! Bye guys! Plus this was the room for the Japanese people or army! Thx guys and bye!!
