CAMP | Outward Bound | November 27-30, 2018

DAY 1- November 27th

When we first got to Outward Bound, we went to the ropes course and played 2 games. One of them, we got given roughly 10 mats and pretended the floor was lava. We had to use the mats to get to the black platform without touching the floor. If the mat had no one touching it for more than 5 seconds, the instructors would take it away and we would lose it. Also, if somebody touched the lava, we would all have to go back and start again. It took us 30 minutes until everybody got onto the platform.

 

 

Weekly Reflection XI

Migrant workers who are poor, work in factories in China and are risking injuries to make goods or the putting together parts of the beginning of a good. These people do the same thing over and over again 12 hours every day. They are treated really badly. Factory companies don’t need people who have a good education. The amount of money everybody has in China is not balanced, some people are very poor and very rich. This also relates to in-equality because if parents were registered as farmers, their children would be registered as farmers as well. It would be very hard to change your residency, people with the residency would not have the same rights as to people from the city.

Weekly Reflection X

I really liked the way Mr Brodie gave us a pre-test to see if we knew everything so that we would be prepared to do the test on Thursday. I wish I had organised my time more wisely. I still need to work on my Chinese SA presentation. This helped me understand I need to take Chinese very seriously. I am most proud of that I finished my home learning on time this week. It will be easy to remember the 9-11 story because I find it really interesting that Osama Bin Laden got away with it for 10 years. The tricky part was finishing all my homework.  Next time I need to plan out my time

Pluses Minuses Ideas

+  What were the Positive things about my learning? What went well?

I was really worried that I wouldn’t have enough time to finish my indigenous art but I finished it on time.

 

–   What were the ‘minuses’ or negative things about my learning? What would I like to improve or change?

I had robotics this week and it was really hard. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my code. I completely forgot that I had a writing assessment and didn’t prepare.

 

I   What ideas does this give me for the future? What will I do next time?

Next time I could ask an expert or Ms Fung for help. Take note of when my Chinese assessments are.

Weekly Reflection #4

The Hive

This week we went to the Hive (which is also called the innovation lab). the first time we went, Mr. Brodie made almond brittle while we recorded observations using the five senses. We also wrote questions related to the key concepts.

I wondered… 

How did the sugar, butter and salt change colour and consistency? Why it smelled so good?

I learned…

how to make it.

I used…

to think eating bacon would be better than that.

 

 

Weekly Reflection #2

This week, we went to the library and read the Backpack story. It is about the history of backpacks.

We also went to PE and Mr Steiner Badminton rackets and birdies to practice. After, we learned how to take down the nets. Mr Brodie read a book called Shi-Shi-Etko. She is a girl living in Canada and loves nature. She is spending as much time as she can with her family, because the government wants children to go to boarding so that they learn to be “Canadian”. Her grandmother tell her to make a memory bag before she goes to not forget where she comes from. She puts things in her bag from nature, her grandma says “where ever you go, what ever you do, never forget who you are”. We made a memory bag like Shi-Shi-Etko.

In Performing Arts, We learned some of the basics of playing the ukulele like how to hold the instrument correctly, the parts of the ukulele and some of the notes.

Mr Brodie let us plan our own afternoon. We brainstormed the central idea. In Visual arts, we were given a popsicle stick to make letters, it was really fun.

Today, we brainstormed what the unit elements were.

“drum roll please”… PRESENTING Screenagers the Documentary

Hi there! Yesterday, 5th grade all the way to grade 9 were all at the LLAC/Theatre to watch a Documentary about kids growing up with electronics like phones, laptops and Ipads. In the video, there were some families who had problems with their children being addicted to their electronics, as well as taking them to school.

I knew that entertainment was different from our parents, But I didn’t know 

The most Nutritious Day Ever!

Today, 5D was full of lessons about nutrition, body systems and plans connected to healthy eating.

First off, we went to a guest speaker in the library  pit, she was a nutritionist and talked about healthy eating. She said our bodies don’t need sugar at all! 95% of chronic disease is caused by our food choice, healthy food is natural with little processing. Micronutrients include protein, carbohydrates and fats. Processed foods are foods that have been altered in some way and are added with fats, sugar or salt to keep from going bad.

After, Ms Miller told us the day before CNY holiday, we would be going to the supermarket and buy ingredients to make what we think is a healthy meal. In class
