Recently, we have been working on an outfit for the fashion show. We had to get into groups of 5. I was the model of our group – shower curtain.
We shared our ideas about the shower curtain and discuss with each other. After that, we came up with a conclusion for the final dress. Our theme is about the flower. We used different materials such as a shower curtain, colored plastic paper, lots of taps, wire and so on. The rest steps are just drawing the draft and make it happen. It’s lucky that we all have the same idea and all of us were working very hard together, even when we had some difficulties. Also, the teacher helped us a lot.
The most enjoyable and memorable part for me is making the shower curtain. Because we can make our idea came true by our hands and with my groupmates. However, that’s the most changeling part too.
I’m back! this week we had sports day, spotlights, Chinese field trip and of course 3D printing.
Sports day, we went to the bus and I sat with my best friend, we were talking and playing. When we arrived we walked to the isle and unpack our things. I lay down my jacket so we can sit on it. Then we ate a little snack and warmed up for the race. we were running and we had so much fun. Then we went to the jumping place, so basically you jump as far as you can to the sandpit I did it three times. After that, we played the game called “mat ball” and it’s just throwing the ball without out the other team to get it. We played up to six points. After that we had played the game called “capture the flag (CTF)” (my favorite game of all.) we played like five rounds because we won each round. We ate lunch and I ate my favorite food (pasta). Then we had relay races we had to go to the boys one because we, missed the girls one. Then we had TUG OF WAR!!!!! so first round was mountain bear vs bear, the blue team won. Then it was raven vs orca (us), so orca won yay! and we vs bears next and we worked so hard pulling the rope. WE WONNNNN!
spotlights, It was the spotlights. It was much different from last year because we weren’t doing it on stage but we did it in the balcony in the CCC. We all had to present a game, the game that we did is called “counting to 10” you basically count to 10 in a different accent voice or sound. We did this for 3 rounds and it was a little bad because we were shouting too loud. I think it is better to do things on the stage because some people forget their lines.
Chinese field trip, we went to the bus to the Chinese museum and once we get there our Chinese gave us a little booklet to write notes and answer some questions. Then we went to this hut to answer some of our questions we were looking at some Chinese words in the olden time and learn about the person who created the Chinese words. We went to another hut and that’s where the timelines of houses and buildings and hospitals are. We had a snack and ate in a cafe, then we went to this hut and decorated/painted the kite and I drew Chinese words and other pictures. We had lunch and paint went all over me…. anyway I had so much fun. We went to the bus and go to school and right now I am writing this blog post.
3D printing, we listen to miss fung on how to use the 3d printer. I made a model for my robot, I made and it and then the teacher checked and see if it was good and she said it is a little bit too tall so I made it shorter and waited and waited. My friend started 3d printing hers and was sooo cool! I think it was really fun I had a short time to do it but thats all for now.
Today I will be writing about my first week back from winter break I hope you like it!
(Tuesday) On the first day back we didn’t do much work and asked all my friends how their winter break was. They all had fun on their winter break. We were also catching up on our work and playing a bit. In the morning we read a bit talked about the day.
(Wednesday) On the second day, we were reading drawing and then we went to Chinese class, in Chinese class we talked about winter break with a friend and a teacher. In Chinese, we also read a story about a mom fox and a baby fax buying gloves because it was too cold, we also had this project to make until January 12. We did math in a booklet about times and divide. (I had so much fun doing math!)
(Thursday) On the third day, We did more math on the booklet. We had Chinese too, we sort of planned on the script that we needed to write! At lunch, we went to the forum to do the project and so we were thinking about the script in English, my partner is called Fiona. My friend went to the library with her other friends. We had book club and gave us a story to read then answer some of the questions.
(Friday, today) The last day, we had three periods of math because we got a new booklet of times and divide then break and ate a yummy snack. Then we had Chinese to finish the project, and we did a little bit of the Chinese (translating). Then we had book club and finish all the questions today. Then we did blogging (I am typing it right now). Then we have body science for two periods (yay……😐.! Not really). For the last period, we have FREE TIME! free time is a period where u can do anything!
Today is the 12th of December, and tomorrow it is the end of the term in cdnis.(December break)today is a great day because we can do some Christmas fun! We are doing secret Santa and I need to give a present to someone and someone will give a present to me. Tomorow is even better because we will have a Christmas party!
The downs of this term are that we cant see our friends in the Christmas break. The ups about having this term break are that we can go on vacation and play with friends and have fun and kinda relax!
We are a family because we are always together every weekday, also when we go in groups and work together, whenever we feel down we comfort me and I think it is really nice, we are always there for each other when your happy, sad, angry and more.
Some glow about this term is that we could finish a lot of math. For the grows I think we should do more UOI and literacy. (also have more parties!)
My favorite learning of this year is UOI because we get to join a group and the teachers ic a two presents charity and learn, decorate card and more! I like it because before the end of the term the two presents member will pick out the best card.
I want to achieve my next term is to raise my hand more because when the teacher asks questions, I don’t raise my hand so I think I should raise my hand more. Also is to not get distracted that much.
Today we went to the library pit, this person called David Livingstone. He was here to talk about child soldiers because he had experienced to be a child soldier. When he was about 15 years the rebels attacked there home (Northern Uganda). so David living stone had to rush to the bushes to hide then he waited until the shooting stopped. After David living stone rushed to his home, and then he got captured by the rebels and sent to be a child soldier he had to kill people like his closest friend if he doesn’t kill them then he will die. After he could escape and he went to the government and said that he was a child soldier but then he went to jail because the government thought he was one of the spies from the rebels. When he was in jail, he had to sleep in rusty floors dirty walls and no bed. His friend was in jail and died there because of starvation. After 6 months he could escape with the help of an old man. He went back to his hometown to find everyone but then his dad died because he was too weak and his mom died because she died somewhere in the bushes. some rebels tried to kill him but he didn’t die. When he was in his hometown he could not find anyone, so he traveled to the city and joined an organization called “Salt and light”. before the war, he lost his finger because his ring was stuck to the car and he couldn’t get it out so he has to chop his finger off.
Hi, this whole week was sooo fun!
Monday, we were preparing for Halloween because the next day was Halloween! we decorated by making tissue ghost, orange pumpkin, and a mummy door! It looked soo scary other classes had scary faces and awesome things in it too! After we make it we went to lunch we ate a ham and cheese sandwich it tastes good.
Tuesday, it was Halloween and everyone dressed up in scary costumes! I dressed up as a vampire, and my BFF was a creepy doll! after lunch, we had a party! We had snacks and drinks and we could watch an awesome movie, we watched “My Babysitter is a vampire”! After that, we had an assembly (about Halloween)! it was really fun!
Wednesday, We took down the decorations we made and reflected about Halloween, we also went to lunch and ate a yummy pork and rice!
Thursday, We had PE and Mr.Wah wasn’t there so there was a substitute, we didn’t have fun because the teacher was shouting at us! Then we had lunch and I ate the yummy pork too!
Today, We did UOI, UOI is where my group and I do the mini-simulation it is really fun. and then we had to go to the assembly which it is was very fun it was the 6th graders doing the assembly.
this is me on Halloween!
Yesterday we went to Pok Fu Lam. Pok Fu Lam is a place where non-privilege people live. We went to Pok Fu Lam village with the class 5C. We went to the Pok Fu Lam village because we can learn the experience about how non-privilege people feel (also to explore the place). What I saw in the Pok Fu Lam is a wet market so people can buy things, some houses, a pretty river, crops, a museum, an old silo and more things. At the top of the Pok Fu Lam village, there is a beautiful fountain called the silver dragon head spouting water it is really pretty and on top of the Pok Fu Lam village, there are some houses. I thought that it was not that bad but I think it would be much better if they could finish their houses because some of the houses are cut in half and then they put a gate so no one would get in. I think maybe some people could build them private bathrooms and maybe a shower too. There was also 4 cute dogs in the Pok Fu Lam village (They are sooo cute!)I wonder if they could have enough resources to build the village? I wonder how they got the dog? Did they buy it/ Did they find it? I also wonder if they have enough money to buy food and living resources. These are the animals (living things we saw), we saw a yellow jacket bee, a hornet, a wasp and a bee, some dogs, a kitten and a turtle!!
so last Wednesday, we had CAMP! I felt like camp was ok. The whole grade 5 camp went to tai tam scout center for camp! 1-6 groups slept in dorms and 7-11 slept in tents! the next day we switched so 1-6groups are tents and 7-11 sleeps in dorms! I love dorms because there is air con and comfortable beds, but we couldn’t sleep. In tents I didn’t really like it because it was sweating hot, but i slept really well in the tents. our camp councillors name is called Kenneth and Rosie!
Most of the people in camp had home sick, so i had to comfort them. The challenge part about camp is that we had to use flint and steel to make a fire, because it seems scary but ms. Williams says to try it out it turns out to be pretty fun!
what i have learned in camp is making rafts and thought us how to use a kayak! We also learnt that, how to navigate and make your own map!
Here r some pics for u guys to see!
