Hello! My name is Alyssa. This is my beam design. I drew pandas, lanterns, and bamboo. In China pandas represent peace. Lanterns represent goof fortune and bamboo represents integrity. I used red, green, black and yellow. Red symbolizes luck, green represents harmony and yellow represents freedom.
It has been a long time since I wrote a weekly reflection. This week we did a lot of geometry. We learned different angles and how to use a protractor. 6D also was doing our art forms Bianca and I were doing baking and we made our own recipe called spuffin McMuffin and It’s a combination of sponge cake, muffin, and cake. The last thing we have been doing is poetry, I don’t really like it much but I’ve learned new words like Ontomatapia and simile. This week was really fun and I would like to do it again.
Grow: I think my video went well. I could have been a little more fluent because sometimes I stuttered. I should’ve also remembered my speech better because sometimes I needed to look at my script. I should have made my speech a bit shorter because it went over the 2 minute time.
Glow: I used HD pictures and was confident with speaking but I don’t know anything else that I did well in.
6D has been learning about theoretical probability( means: The study of probability can be divided into two areas) and experimental probability( means: A probable or the most probable event.) We have been learning it by doing activities like rolling dice, choosing cards, flipping coins etc.. We have also been measuring if something is likely, unlikely or equally likely and putting it on a number line and converting probability into fractions, ratios and percentages.
I feel not the most confident with theoretical and experimental probability because I need to practise more or revise. I think if I did more activities like this or some videos so I can understand this topic some more.
I think some of the challenges was converting the probability into a fraction, per cent, or ratios because I haven’t really practised that one that much. I also found making a tree chart was quite challenging but I know I can practise this and review it so I can understand better.
I couldn’t find any of the best things I have learnt. I feel maybe I’m a little confident about measuring where the probability of something is and place it in different categories like unlikely, likely and equally likely.
I think I should improve on practising and revising more math because then I can get better at probability.
This week I learned about refugees and how they have a hard life living in refugee camps. The reason I learned this was because a guest speaker came to our school and told 6th grade about refugee camps and refugees from Siberia. He told us about how people rejected him because he was too young. His advice was do something you like doing and you’re never too young or too old to take action. In the future, I will use this learning and bring it to my exhibition because his advice really helped me think of my passions.
Next Week I will try to plan my questions for my exhibition and start doing interviews and google forms.
Young Americans was a very good learning experience for me because I got to do something without anyone judging me. I think Young Americans made me realize that it’s ok to make mistakes and you don’t need to be embarrassed about it. I think they really boosted my confidence on stage and they made everything really fun!
I think if I was going to improve on something I would improve on not tripping on stage because it was very crowded on stage and even though I didn’t trip in the performance I still need to work on that when I’m in crowded areas.
I think everyone did really good while performing. I made a lot of new friends in this process and I’m going to miss the Young Americans a lot.
We had 4 people in my group including me so I think it was a challenge to make a dance with four people. Our dance was 32 seconds so it was very short. I don’t think we expressed passions in this dance so I think that’s what I will improve on. Also, facial expressions are key but we didn’t have any. My favourite part was rehearsing the dance and making it because it was really fun to cooperate and make different moves into dance.
