This week, we had a guest speaker today. This guest speaker’s name is David Livingstone. He was a child soldier and he has escaped and made a organisation which is helping child soldiers out of their very dangerous circumstances. The organisation’s name is Salt & Light®. He has been a child soldier and had to go through his early days. These circumstances include killing his friends, shooting with guns and walking for one week without a break. This was very hurting for me because I have never knew these very violent things were happening in the world and even to kids. He has said that these kids were not able to go to school and have education. These people will grow up without knowing how to even read or write. This means that child soldiers is a very big problem because they cannot go to school. If these people were able to escape the war zone, they would need to walk to the central city. If they go thought that, they would be arrested because the government will think that you are a spy who is spying on the central city. This would mean going to a war prison. They mostly die in the prison camp because of starvation but this person was very lucky and was let go by a old man in the prison. Now that I have listened to David Livingstone, I have now felt like I would want people to take action into child soldiers. I feel that other people need to know about this act and everyone is going to make actions to help these children escape the war and put them into school to have education have a great future. This blog post is not about telling you about the guest speaker. This blog post is to RAISE AWARENESS in child soldiers. I think this is a very important task to do even before solving other problems. These children has a future.
In our Unit of Inquiry, we are working a project (My project is the picture on the top). This is a peace flag that I have made. It was also my first project to use the sewing machine. I sewed most of my things using my hand. It was really cool to use the sewing machine. The sewing machine was really cool because it all moved my itself. I have only saw my mom using the sewing machine but this time I did it by myself. I have researched a lot of peace signs and other things related to peace. I have used cloth markers and also used felt and clothes. We made our backgrounds by dipping paint in our piece.
This week was a very long week. The part that I really liked when we were getting ready for our presentation. Me and my friend got ready for our presentation. We are presenting about our UOI. In our UOI, we chose to learn and research about child trafficking. We have found a lot of information about child trafficking. We are using Google Slides to make presentation. Our presentation contained a lot of information and told about what was happening to these people who were getting trafficked. Our goal is to raise more awareness into child trafficking. Child trafficking is really major in India, so I would really want people to tell the government in India to try to take action into child trafficking. I think we are going to be great when we present our presentation. I am looking forward to it.
Today is the Friday, 20th October 2017. This week, we had a very fun time together. My favourite part of this week is when we were making our designs for my robot. I am thinking to make a robot that can build things with arms and blocks. Some workers who build buildings sometimes fall off because it was dangerous. He was very
Hello, This week I have played a game in PE. In this game, we learnt about the circumstances for other people and also how the world is right now. In this game, we played capture the flag, but one group was stronger than the other groups. They were not able to be captured from the other groups. The group that was stronger got all the points that the other groups. This made me think about the outer world. I have learnt that I was very privileged and I also had more resources than the other people around the world. Next time, I think I will try to help people who are not as privileged as others. I can give resources and also give money to charities.

This week, the whole Grade 5 went to camp at Tai Tam. I think that camp was fun but some parts I felt were very boring and not fun for me. Things that were very fun were when we were able to make fire with metal. Parts that I didn’t like is like the food there. I really hated the food there. The spaghetti was overcooked and the cereal was actually not good at all. The food that I liked the most was the rice that we ate on the first day.
Something that challenged me is when we had to wash our own dishes. I have learnt some ways to wash the dishes. I have never washed many dishes in my life.
Today (September 22th), we looked at my bed and other peoples bed around the world. We saw pictures of many peoples bed. Some people looked like they lived happily, but some pictures were just sometimes coaches and some other ones were just on the ground or on the streets. I learnt about this person who took a trip around the world to just take pictures of other children’s beds around the world. I really thought why other leaders around the world not listening or paying attention to these children’s who just live outside or might have a bed which might be broken. I think this should be solved especially for children. I think that children deserves to have a better life in the future. Overall, I think someone has to take action to make sure these children have a safe and a comfortable places to sleep.
This week, we did a lot of things. For example, we learnt about Multiplying and Dividing Decimal Numbers and we also learnt about Circumstances and Less Privileged People. I think the very important thing that we did is the poster that I worked on. I made a poster about Myself and Less Privileged People. I used Compare and Contrast to describe the similarities and difference about myself and Less Privileged People. For the similarities, I wrote that…
We all have a house
Some people are free
Some people and places have a kind of transportation
Some communities have events
There are teachers
We all are able to afford some food
For the differences…..
What their houses are made out of
The clothes they wear
They don’t have common things that we have(pen, paper)
There are no classroom(no enough money)
A way people including myself to help the less privileged people is by…
Give money to charities
Volunteering to help people in need
Work for a charity company
After that I finished that, I drew pictures and put a picture that I found on the internet
I think this week was very fun. This week, our class worked on a class project on How We Express Ourselves. I really like to do projects. For this project, we had to make something that might solve problems about what bothers us. I was very upset about North Korea so we made a play with North Korea. Me, Kavin, Kelson and Charlie was our group. I worked on making props for the play. I made the missile (that was destroyed in the play). I was also going to make a ballon but I couldn’t finish in time but I helped with making the play. I was the cameraman which took the video. It was very fun to make the play. I hope we will do these things in the future.
