This week I learned how to convert fractions into decimals and turning decimals into percentages. This week i also learned about how to never gave up because a few days ago Jordan Hatter came to our school to talk about his story in Syria, he talked about how it took him a lot of tries to go to the white house to talk about his story and he never gave up and one day he finally got to meet Michelle Obama to talk about the voices of Syria.
my math book page
In the future I will use the method on how to convert fractions into decimals and turning decimals into percentages for when i go to work in the future and when I buy something from a shop i will know what the change is. Never giving up is the most important because if you are giving up quickly you wouldn’t get good grades or good jobs, i think that I will work harder when I grow up.
Next week I will want to know more about how to convert fractions into decimals and turning decimals into percentages. Next week I also want to learn more about James Hattar’s story because i think it is really interesting, i can research about him.
last week we got an amazing opportunity to learn from young Americans. The young Americans are a group of teenagers who are professionals in dancing and singing. Some of the young Americans are from Japan, Scotland, and America.
This is one of the best experience and memorable day of my life. The young Americans gave me the opportunity to give me a dance solo, so I had to dance in front of 70+ people. The young Americans encouraged me to do the solo.
The young American taught the whole grade which was about 125 people. Everyone in the grade was really shy and once the performance finished everyone said that it was the most memorable day of their life.
Before our performance the young americans gave us an XL and an L shirt that wrote young Americans on it. It was really big for me so I had to tie it up. the YA’s did a performance to remember this day and for the people to see who the young americans are.
last week I went to a camp site called “Outward Bound”. Outward Bound is in Sai Kung. Outward Bound is also a place to have fun and learn lots of new things. I learned to be more responsible of my things. I also learned how to cooperate with others and I made new friends.
On November 27th we went to the campsite! I was in a group with my best friends and I was really excited.
We first found our instructors and we talked about what we will do for a few days. The instructors gave us water bottles for a souvenir.Then we did some get to know you games. We did a game called monkey ball and I think it is really fun. For dinner me and my friends made pasta for our group.My group did a something called the moment of silence. The moment of silence is where you appreciate what you have. After diner we played a game called the froggy jump. Its where you get some lily pads (fake) and we put it on the floor and across the room. There was disabilities where some people cant see and talk, the rule is to keep contact with it or you will lose it. I think it was really fun. Then I went to our sleeping bag and me and my friend played unstable unicorns with me.
We went to hike to the other campsite. In our bag was fruits and our lunch with a big jug of water, the bag I carried was very heavy. We hiked for around 3 hours and we went to our lunch spot. When we got to where we were going to have lunch, it started raining so we had to find somewhere to cover ourselves. Our instructor got a big blanket and made a do it yourself shelter. When we started making our food it stopped raining. We saw 3 cows and a buffalo they were going to eat our food but we stop them. We then hiked down to our camp spot and we were all tired. Once we arrive we played a game called black magic and we did a hand game. We seep really well that night.
When we woke up we had breakfast. We played a game called monkey ball, and another game where you try to get a ball and get it without the instructor noticing. I think it was really fun but we had to end and go to the bus. When we are in the bus we had a sing battle with another group, I had so much fun. Once we arrive to outward bound. Once we arrived there, we changed to our swim clothes and went kayaking. I was in a group with my friends. We kayaked to our lunch spot we found a hermit crab and named it chocolate. We had a different group and headed back and did the JETTY JUMP! The water was really cold but I had a lot of fun. I jetty jump twice and I thought it was really fun. Everyone did it and they said it was the best. We showered and went to eat dinner.
This day was the last day. We packed our stuff and went out and had breakfast. I had so much fun in camp and I want it to happen again. We did a closing ceromony and headed to the bus.When we were in the bus we were so tired that almost the whole bus fell asleep. When we arrived we played card games and ate candy. I think I had so much fun.
This week was really fun because we went to a field trip and we had house spirit day.
On Thursday, We were planning on a game called “The trade game” You basically get a stack of playing cards and choose and see what your number is. I got ten which is not that bad. 1 is the lowest and there is only one king, but at least one of my good friends are queen and jack.
On Thursday, We Went to a field trip called “Oxfam”. Oxfam is a place where you learn about factory workers and about migration. We were in a simulation of how normal workers feel like. We wore hair nets and a plastic mask so that we wont infect the products. Some groups screwed the nails into the screwer and the other group takes of the nails. It was really frustrating. Then one of the workers were missing and we had to investigate and find where he is. In the end we found that he was sad and depressed and killed himself. He made a song called “hotel California”. I think it is really fun and I learned a lot about this simulation.
On Friday, We had PE finally! In PE we played a game called doctor dodge ball and I was the doctor once. Then we did HLG sharing. I shared with my friends and people in my table. After lunch we had HOUSE SPIRIT! I am in orca and we did a chant,some games and we did a moral of orca. After we had the tug of war! I was so excited, I put on a orca tattoo and drew red on my face. We did around four rounds and orca won all of them!
I have made some goals I made a few days ago. I want to talk about my goals because I want to accomplish things that I am not good at.
I want to improve on my confidence. I need to be confident because I rarely raise my hand in class. I need to be confident so I can make new friends and so I can be a good learner.I will start listening to the teacher so I will know what the teacher is talking about. When I am good at listening and won’t get distracted, I will then ask questions of things I don’t know. Then I will try my best to talk to a small group of people about my ideas. When I feel more confident I will start sharing to the entire class.
My second goal is to organize my home learning and my writing. I need to organize my home learning because if I don’t I will be very confused and I won’t be able to do my work.I also need to organize my home learning grid because i don’t want to do my homework on the last day. When I get home from school I will check off the list of which activity I did. I will keep on doing it until I can organize my home learning grid better. I will start doing it once I get my grid back.
My last goal is to add more detail to my writing. I need to add more detail because I don’t really write my paragraphs with detail I always write with really simple words. Maybe next time I can use the thesaurus and use one of the words there. I will try to start when I start writing a paragraph from my grid or any writing.
去年我參加了家庭活動日。我跟媽媽爸爸一起玩。 我想參加因為很好玩和跟我的媽媽爸爸一起溝通。同時，我也可以跟同學一起玩。我可以跟爸爸媽媽建立一個好的關係。在活動日當天我吃了冰淇淋丶水果和棉花糖。 這個活動讓我認識到自己是一個樂觀丶開心的小女孩。 我也學到要重視跟家庭相處的態度。這小活動幫助了我溝通。最後，我懂了怎麼樣的朋友和家人。
This week I will be using a different style of writing my reflections. Today I will be explaining some things that I felt that helped my learning and some that were useless and didn’t help my learning.
First, we did the virtual reality and I thought it was very useful because when we added the VR goggles we can learn different things like caves, bones and more.
Second, we went to the book fair. I didn’t think it was that useful because I didn’t learn anything and some people don’t want to buy anything. I also didn’t think it was useful because the books that were in the book fair were mostly activity and comic books which I think it won’t help our learning.
Third, we went to an upper school classroom to learn about different kinds of acid. The acid we used is Lemon Juice. I think it is useful because we are learning about observing and experimenting with different objects and things.
Fourth, We did a MAP test. I think it is really useful because we can see if we are good at it and if we need to improve.
TWO STARS AND A WISH:
⭐️ My personal glossary because I always write new words and add it to my process journal.
⭐️PMI (pluses, Minus and ideas) I think I did well because I added a lot of information and things people need to know about our watercolor slide/movie.
🙏🏻 I think I need to add more detail to my home learning and in my explanation writing
-By using new words that I use in class.
This week I have been doing a new “own it”. I first did the math task then the language. I like math more than writing because I think it is fun and I get to think and draw. What I did in one of my math tasks is a doc about division. the tasks I did was. “Fibonacci sequence” and “divisibility practice”.In my language task I read a book called “The war that saved my life” and I really love it. The book is about a nine year old and she has never left her one-room apartment. Her cruel and mean mom is too humiliated by the girls twisted foot to let her outside. So when her little brother Jaime, is shipped out of London to escape war, the girl “Ada” sneaks to join him. They were both forced to live with Susan Smith, a woman who knows nothing about kids. I think it is a really good book because it’s very interesting.
On Tuesday, We had P.E in the morning and morning meeting we played a game S.P.L.A.T and I had so much fun!! I won the game and played against the winner last time but sadly I lost…..but at least I was 2nd place!
On Thursday, We ate lunch and I ate PIZZA!🍕 It was raining so we went to the classroom and play, and again we played splat……then we found out that we were not supposed to be there so we went back down and played.
I will be writing about my weekend I hope you like it!
On Monday, we did a class design committee, I was in a group with all my friends. We decided to make a comfy corner with pillows, bean bags, and a tiny fort. We also decided to clean up the shelves because it was so messy and dirty. We haven’t done it yet but I am looking forward to cleaning and making the fort and the shelves.
On Tuesday, We had P.E it was really fun because we did badminton I think it was because it is similar to tennis, I really like tennis because I like playing games using a ball. Before we badminton we skipped, run, cross foot and more it was very tiring…
On Wednesday, We had Chinese. We had a pre-assessment about your summer vacation and we have to write 200 or more! the first day I only wrote a few sentences because it was so hard to write it in Chinese. The next few days I wrote exactly 197 and I was so proud of my self and the next day I finally finished! I was so happy I have finished it!
On Thursday, we did an activity called “Own It”. Own it is an activity where you get to choose/plan your day. I did the math pre-assessment, and learner’s profile and a project called “Passion’s and skills”. Let me explain what we did for pre-assessment. Pre-assessment we did patterns and we used a Venn diagram. Here are some examples that I did for the patterns:
- 1,4,7,10… rule: +3
- 10,8,6,4,2… rule: -2
- 8,10,7… rule: start at 8, 8+2-3
Then we had P.A we learned how to use the ukulele and it was so cool because we learned all the notes and next week we will be learning how to play simple and easy songs like “happy birthday” or “twinkle twinkle little star”. I can’t wait to play the ukulele again! I have never played the ukulele before and this was new for me and I loved it! 😀
I am now in grade 6! (so exciting!) I am in class 6D (Decoys) I am very happy that I am in the same class as my best friend and I’m a little sad that I am not in the same class as my other friends. The first day of school was that we got too out lockers and go to the library pit and see who is in my Chinese class. I am so happy that I am with all of my best friends in that Chinese class.
It is Friday and it has been a whole week, one of the best things about the week is that i had so much fun this week because I got to meet my friends and have fun with our teacher.
Some of the challenges in grade 6 were making new friends and doing some math and Chinese problems/test, but in the end, I made a lot of new friends and finished and accomplished them.
I am excited that we got to choose where we sat, PYP exhibition, doing lots of arts and more. Some suggestions for the future is that we should make new friends, talk to them and make the new students more welcome than before. I also want to make our classroom more welcome and comfortable for other students.
What I am worried about are the PYP exhibition and the young Americans and Chinese test and English tests, but I have a feeling that it will be ok.
I want to know about young Americans and things about the PYP exhibition more. I hope to have new friends and do good on my tests and dictations in Chinese and in English classes.
On Tuesday, The second period we went to PE, I had so much fun we played freeze tag and lots more! I was really happy on writing about my summer break. We were suppose to tell the class but half of us didn’t do it because there wasn’t time.
On Thursday, We had Visual Arts. Visual arts was so fun because we got to draw and doodle around and answer question. The question that the teacher said was “how do you express creativity?” (well thats what i remembered)
I hope you like it bye!
