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 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.



“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

My Peace Flag

Hi, this is my peace flag I made in Visual arts. I expressed my message, by shaping the branches into a peace symbol to represent hope in plants. the techniques I used are sewed on fabric and felt, tie dyed cloth, a hot glue gun, a sewing machine and fabric markers.

Pok Fu Lam Village Field Trip

Hi, Yesterday we went to Pok Fu lam Village to learn about how people live in a small community. We saw market stalls, Restaurants, The dairy farm staff quarters (which is covered in green netting), Wall graffiti, Cartoon exit signage, cultivated crops, metal boxes and the house numbering method. If you ever go there keep a look out for The Dragon’s museum (on the roadside), The Bo gong Shrine, the hay silo, Li (ling) Pagoda and the silver dragon head spouting water (at the top of the village). I think that it is really cool that they have their own little village there. The government wants to knock it down but it is the last village

Grade 5 Camp!

Hi, Last week, grade 5 went to the APA (Asia Pacific Adventure) camp for 3 days.

  1. Have you done a similar kind of camp in the past (earlier in the year or in a previous grade ;in school or out of school)?

Back in May, when I was in grade 4 we also went to a different camp called Treasure Island and did similar activities, but this year we only spent one night in the tent and the other in a dorm with 8 people.

2. How do you feel about this Camp? What parts of it do particularly like? Dislike? what did/do you about camp?

I loved camp, it was really fun spending time with my friends in the dorm, I also really liked pier jumping and bouldering (climbing boulders, like rock climbing)

3. In what ways was your activities or process similar?

Everyone was separating into 11 groups (about 12 people per group) depending on tent mates. Around 1-2 groups were doing different activities than other groups at the same time

4. what’s the one thing that you have seen in your classmates’ activities or process that you would like to try in your next process?

We did the same activities and process, so I would change nothing.

My Goals

Hello Readers, Right before the mid term break every on had a 3WLC which means 3 way learning conversation, it is where you sit down with your teacher and your parents and talk about how you’ve progressed the year, ways they can help you catch up and possible goals that can be made. It takes around 20 minutes and you make 2-3 goals.

This is a link to my goal setting doc.
