Happy Christmas everyone!! Today, I have finished my first term of my school! I am very excited for my Christmas Break. This break, I am going to Japan and ski there! I have been working a lot this week. We have been doing our maths, literacy and most importantly, our Unit of Inquiry. This last week is kind of a resting week because we have been doing a lot of work. This term was the longest term in our school. We have finished our work faster than any other class! I really like this year’s teacher because our teacher finishes everything fast.
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.

Hello, and my name is Hajime(if you don’t know). Now I am in grade 5 !!!!!😀😀😀
This is my first week in grade 5. It has been very fun to meet my new students in my new class. My teacher is Ms. Laura an she is very nice. Our class name is 5B Boomshakalakas. As you see, I have changed my blog format a bit. I was a bit scared about grade 5 but I mostly kind of like grade 5.
On Tuesday May 16th, We had our coding class. In coding class, we adding on to what we are doing on Challenge 2. In Challenge 2, we have to make a code that draws words. In my project, I have finished drawing a A, B, C, D, and O (This is the Link to the project). I am really looking forward to finishing my project for Challenge 2. At school, We are learning about the coordinates and other things that you might need for the code. It was really easy for me because I have done the same thing in a place where you learn how to code. Instead of making more words, I have been helping others to make their code better and also solve problems in their code. If I have more time, I would really like to make my codes better and make the words look realistic.
Overall, I think I have been helping others and our class has been cooperating and they are also curious about for the code.
From Wed, March 29 to Fri, March 31 all the grade 4 went camping at Treasure Island. We were separated into groups of 12 or 13 and we did activities that we cannot do at Hong Kong Island. We went to the beach, learnt about the ecosystems that is connected to our PYP, Sharing the planet.
What I really enjoyed about camp is that we could do activities that we normally don’t do, like going to a Wetland and study about the plants that live there and what can happen when the weather changes. I think the activity that I enjoyed the most is raft building Sandy shores because I liked it when we got to go to the ocean and played with the water.
An activity that I experienced for the first time was the Raft Building (picture on top) because we got to make our own raft and tried to use it in the ocean. Our raft did float and move, but it was very unstable. From what we built, we also learnt some ways to tie ropes. The materials we used is 4 to 5 ropes, 3 bamboo sticks and 3 tires.
I will remember when we had cold showers because it was very cold. I would also remember when we had Breakfast, Lunch and dinner at Mav’s because I liked the food there. There was pasta, cereal and other yummy food.
What I found challenging is when we had to sleep because I never slept in a sleeping bag. Sleeping bags are not very comfortable but can be very warm. It was warmer than the normal bed that I sleep in at home. When I came back from camp, it felt very comfortable when I got to sleep in a normal bed.
I learnt about the ecosystems and how to save the environment and nature. It was very fun because we got to do things that we don’t normally do in our daily lives. I learnt how to surf and learnt and played games that I don’t play or I didn’t know about. Hajime:)
On Friday, Dec 9th and on Monday, Dec 12th, we did our morning meeting as usual but at the Green Roof !!! It was the first time having a morning meeting on the green roof. It was really fun to go outside and do morning meeting because the wind was very comfortable than the classroom. I felt free when we went to the green roof because there was no roof and the I was really relaxed than being inside the classroom. I think our class should go to the green roof more so our classmates can have a relaxed time every day.
Also on the last period of Friday, there was an assembly and we planned to get the Cup Of Good Choices. We really worked hard on getting it. When the assembly finished, the secret judge (Ms Glazier) said our class worked really hard on getting the Cup Of Good Choices so they gave us the Cup of Good Choices. We were the first on getting the Cup Of Good Choices in Grade 4.
