PA Blog Reflection

Hi Kubafundi!(That means Hi Readers in Zulu)

Today I will reflect about performing arts and make a reflection about what we did. So let’s get started!

This is the Central Idea:

Patterns can be represented through a combination of art forms.

I think it’s purpose is to tell us that dance can be made from all different kinds of forms, like everyday moves.

In PA, we have been talking about shapes, patterns , art forms, light paintings, dance geography and making dances from everyday moves. You can CLICK HERE to go to a video explaining about what we are going to do with light paintings.

So what is a light painting?  A light painting is like a painting, but with light. So you make a dance, attach lights on to you or other things, and then start filming in a dark room.So it s basically a light picture-film. If you can’t understand that, here is another way of explaining:A light painting is a painting made with colored lights/glow sticks using an app to capture only the lights without the people to make a nice, finished light painting.

This Week’s Goal Setting and Reflecting

I am grateful for my mom and dad because they take care of me, they took me to vacation and help me a lot. There are a lot more reasons.

The thing I enjoyed most about this week is coming back to school and meeting all my friends again. It is great to see them all.

Something that was challenging was getting from Vacation mode to normal mode. On Wednesday I was so tired!

My Goals

Learning Goal ~ To post something that I learnt at school on my blog.

Personal Goal~ To do some more exercise and have a positive attitude

Relationship Goal~ To play with some of my old friends more.

For my Learning Goal,  I think I really achieved that because I tried surfing for the first time.

For my Personal Goal, I achieved that everyday because I woke up exactly 25 minutes before teachers started yelling at us.

For my  Relationship Goal, I got a new friend called Alexa. She was in my tent. She likes to read Garfield.

Things that I am proud of

  1. That I achieved my three goals
  2. That I did not get very homesick
  3. That I learned how to paddle in surfing

What I enjoyed

  1. Going to camp!
  2. All of the Games
  3. Spending time with my friends
  4. Setting up the tent and sleeping in it ~ it was so cool!
  5. Mostly Everything

Improvement

  1. Try to not waste so much food (I don’t so much but I want to eat more . Good for the environment)
  2. Be better in surfing paddling

Gratitude

I want to thank Claudia (My camp Leader ) and Mr. Wah (My Camp teacher) for helping me.

I want to thank all the staff there for organising the camp activities and everything.

I want to thank my mom and dad for buying me all the things I needed for camp

I want to thank Laurel, Anna and Alexa for being great tent mates

I want to thank Laurel (Again) for being my bathroom buddy

So See you later Readers and Bye!

Goal Setting

Ms. Brown told us about how she sets goals. She shared it with the class and decided that we should get to make our goals every week for home learning. I like this goal setting technique.

So you have to make 3 types of goals

1.One Learning Goal

2. One Personal Goal

3.One Relationship Goal

Last week’s goals were

1.Learning Goal ~Learn more about Volume. Go on Khan Academy or Something

2.Personal Goal~Take 5 minutes to clean my room(it’s kinda messy)

3.Relationship Goal~Spend at least 3 minutes with my pet Hazel

Reflecting on my goals, I think they were achievable. I achieved my goals tooThis week’s Goals

 

This week’s Goals(Related to camp)

1.Learning Goal~ To be more of a risk taker and try new things

2.Personal Goal~  To try to wake up without a teacher waking me up because I’m getting lazy

3.Relationship Goal~To know something more about my campmates.
