Yesterday, upper school, grade 5 and 6 watched a documentary called Screenagers about phones and how that your addicted to it. It is about how screens can affect kids,teens and parents. Families,doctors and psychiatrist are interviewed and asked about their opinions and connections about technology.They also tell stories about real life problem with families about technology.
I have learned that technology can affect your learning and life. It can affect your learning by making your brain not concentrated, for example after you watch a movie before a test and when you do the test it won’t be as good. It can affect your life by changing your personality, for example if you play violent video games, their could be a chance you become a violent person in the future. This could also affect you by being addicted, you will spend less time outside and you will be looking at your phone or computer. You will also not normally do face to face talking with your friends and family.
This movie also gives solutions for technology agreements for families, for example a contract and time limits for computers and phones. The advice that they gave really helped and solved their problems about technology. One of their advice is to have talk about their week with technology called tech talk tuesdays.
I recommend this movie to children and parents because this could change your perspective about technology and how it can affect you. After you watch the movie you might make some rules that will change you and lead you to a better life path. This movie has also affected me because now I will try my best to not use too much technology in my life.
On Tuesday, 5D had our 4th section with Yes talent. Yes talent is a small group of graduated Hong Kong university students that studied fashion. In the last few sections we had class with them we were put in groups, so we could make a piece of clothing only using recycled materials. When we were put in our groups we had to make a topic relating to change because change is related to our unit. We also learned how to make different styles on our clothing,for example they taught us the Ruffel. On February the 9th we’ll be putting up a fashion show in CDNIS to show our final products.
During that section we brought in our inspiration boards to show our group and continued making our final product. We also decorated the skirt, we decorated it by tie dying it in the color of emotions of our choice. We also started sewing our clothes together so it can be wearable (it is attached on a mannequin)

我和我的朋友楊記欣做了一個短片。我覺得我們做得很好因為我們是第一個組做完電影，我們也做到所有的要求。我們的電影要有一個中心思想， 我們的電影的中心思想是“我們要保護動物”。 我們沒有問題，覺的做短片的時候很好玩和非常簡單，因為我們做電影很早。如果我可以改變一個事情在我的電影裏，我會讓電影更實際，因為我覺得我們的電影不太好。

During the christmas break, me and my family went to Phuket, Thailand. We stayed there for 7 days and each day we did a different fun thing. I think the funnest thing I did on the trip was on christmas because it was not only christmas but also my little sisters birthday. On christmas day we did lots of stuff, we went zip lining and horse riding.
When I first woke I went with my bigger sister to my little sisters room to say happy birthday, then we went out to have a nice family breakfast in the cafe the coffee club. After that we went to a shop that’s for tourist, we went there so we could find a place we could got to after zip lining and we decided to go horse riding, then we went straight to zip lining , we were in the white team, the teams were for the instructor to know what team he/she is. The place we were zip lining was called the flying Hanuman. We had an hour of zip lining in the jungle with my family. There was not only just regular zip lining but we could go straight down a tree with a rope attached to my gear. After zip lining we got some gifts from the instructor, he gave us a bandana and enough t-shirts for each person in my family. Then we said goodbye to our instructor and headed to horse riding.
When we went to the horse riding place we went on the horses and went to the beach with our instructors. We went a lap around the beach and it took 1 hour, we saw children with their families playing at the beach. Then we went to a place with beautiful flowers and a lot of wheat. After that one hour was finished we headed back to the hotel to watch a movie we bought them went to sleep.
On November 24th, 5D went to Asbury for a field trip. Asbury is a service centre that helps and supports people that live in Subdivided house. 5D took action and helped and did a mission. The mission was to buy fruits, eggs, toilet rolls and vegetables. Then we went to a subdivided home to give the food we bought to them.
1What are the most important furniture for you? (Name three items)
__I think the three most important furniture for me is fridge, cupboards, sofa. I choose the fridge because that’s what stores the food that need to be frozen. I choose cupboards because it makes it easy for us to find things instead of everything lost and on the floor. I also choose choose the sofa because it is a place where you can relax with your family.
- What are the most important electrical appliances for you? (Name
____I think the Air-con, the stove and the lights. I think the lights are 3 important because they guide us when it is dark. I also think the stove and the Air-con are important because When it’s the Summer and it is really hot you can close the window and use the air-con. The stove is important because it cooks your food.
3.Is it available to place all the above items in subdivided unit?
__No, because normally subdivided rooms are too small and squishy but I think you can fit an air-con lights and a few cupboards.
- Imagine that if you live in the subdivided unit, how to make use of the
space to place those kinds of items? What is your tradeoff?___I would put the beds and the beds in the space that is gives more space for the other furniture. I wouldn’t have space for a room for the kitchen but I would have space for the toilet and the kitchen in one room.
- What are the differences between your home and the subdivided unit?
____The difference With my house and the subdivided house is that my house is bigger and there are more than 2 rooms. The kitchen and the toilet are not in one room.
- How do you feel about this visiting experience?
_____I feel that I want to take action for the people that live in the subdivided homes because they live in such small places for a big family.
7.What would you do to serve our community to be a better place?
_____Don’t be unfair to these people and give them their own home.

Yesterday, 5D and 5E went to Pokfulam village, Pokfulam village has been here for 400 years. In the village there was still lots of people living there, even children. There was a school, Markets, Restaurants and lots of other convenient shops.
I saw lots of plants and flower patches, after I saw how much nature they planted I think they are doing this because they want to keep the village healthy and green. Their houses are made out of thin metal.
Last week, the whole Grade 5 went to Tai Tam for camp. I was very excited for camp because I wanted to have a fun 3 day sleep over with my friend. We were going to sleep in tents for one night and dorms the other night, I didn’t want to sleep in dorms because I had never experienced it.
At camp I encountered some problems, for example being really hot when I was sleeping in the tents and being homesick. I ended up solving my problems because of trying new things and getting advice from my friends.I solved my sleeping problem by opening the net and the big cover of the tent and all the wind came in, there were also no flies coming in. I solved my homesick problem listening to my friends advice and to think that I am going home soon and if I have fun this day will be finished very quickly.
I learned that if I try I can solve or get over something, for example when I was home sick I really wanted to go home and I didn’t want to sleep at that camp any more, but when I fell asleep I knew I could go home soon. I also learned kayaking, it was really easy to learn . All you needed to know is how to paddle and how to get in, after you can start kayaking but you have to make sure that no water gets in or else you might sink. These two things are the most important things I learned because it was my first time kayaking and I learned a new way to get over homesick, which can help me if I get homesick again.
If I could change something in the camp, I would change how they made lunches that had to be put in our bags for 5 hours in the boiling sun. I think we could come back and make a fresh and refreshing lunch.
If I could go back in time and go back to grade 5 camp, I would want to think that Camp in only for 3 days and I will go home soon, because on the last night of camp I thought of that and went home in a very short time.
Camp was also a very happy experience because I made new friends, found a new way to get over home sick. I also enjoyed spending time with my friends.
Before the Mid term break, I had a 3 way learning conversation. 3 way learning conversations are about asking our parents to come in and set goals for me till January, when our parents come in and review our goals. We show how much we progressed by writing down evidence every week. My goals are in My Red Binder.
