This week we had camp, Camp was very very fun! In camp my tent group was Trevis and Joshua west. My camp instructor was Taylor, he was very funny and enthusiastic about a lot of things.My tent group was the best, they would help you and make you laugh. I saw a lot of four leaf clovers but hey were fake :(. So I made a remembering of it / a grave.The activity at camp (life) was very fun because they included commitment. We played a game called (the game of life). It was very fun because it really represents life. That was my favourite activity in camp.We learnt a few things like coordinance. The first day we set up our tent it was fun because you could remember how to do it for grade five camp. I loved camp it was so fun and amazing to be with your friends for 2 nights. That is why I loved camp. I think camps attributes is commitment because you had to try everything and not be afraid. The first day for dinner we had barbeque the foods were potato, sausage, corn and smores. On the second day we built water rafts out of tires bamboo and ropes. I learnt how to tie a box knot.

Last week we inquired into PSAs. They are public service announcements. We had to watch the ad ad then answer some questions. Here is my thinking: We are all in connected
They are trying to tell you that the world is being destroyed because of as, and animals are connected to us we are like animals. We have to help these animals because they’re all endangered.
If your house was being burnt down you would be sad so as animals.
They used real life images and described it with the images.
Farmers and ordinary people.
Some people will disagree because that is there job, people might agree with it because they love animals and want to save them.
They will think that they should join the SPCA because there helping the animals.
This month we had sports day. I ran in the race but unfortunately orcas came 2 or 3😔. The whole Leica boys team was made from people from my class. My friends were also running for different teams. My mom came and supported me very well!! Some people even said I ran like the flash or something! ⛹🏻🎽
I think I did very well running because I ran as fast as I could and tried my best.
This week we were starting our new unit － Sharing the Planet. We are doing a design project to build a new dwelling using math to calculate area, perimeter, and volume. There are different steps to my project. First, I make a blueprint and then I pose questions to get people to use math. After people answer my questions. Finally, I get to build my new house in Minecraft. Today I got on Minecraft. I was so excited when I first opened it because I could start building my house! My house is a composite shape which means it is made out of smaller components. For me, that is small rectangles and squares! We had to calculate area and perimeter. We even learned volume! Volume is the area of a 3D shape! This project was amazing and fun and it’s not even over yet!!
