Hello and Happy Chinese New Year (Happy Australia’s Day a bit late for that). Before the CNY break, we had a lot of things to do and one of the most important ones was the AIR (Artists in Residence). We had a Fashion Show and we had to make our own clothes (we had to still wear real clothes under) using recyclable stuff. Our group agreed to make a rugby T-shirt, but they didn’t show us any boys examples, so we had to create it by ourselves.
We made our T-shirt and pants using recycled paper. It was a very bad idea to use paper for the pants because it kept on ripping but the T-shirt was fine and very well looking. We wrote numbers on the back (just like real players) and we also put our company name (it’s not a real name) Hong Kong Rugby Sportswear.
We actually did really good on that project, but days before the fashion show (As you know) the Hong Kong Government shut down all schools because of influenza going on in Hong Kong. Our school is a private school, (I don’t know why) but they shut down our school too and our fashion show was canceled. We were very disappointed because we worked very hard on our clothes. We were still happy too because we had 1 more week added to our CNY holiday. I think this week was a very happy and disappointing week.
This is our first week in 2018!! This week was a very fun week. This week, we put legs on our robots. We put the legs on our robots because we will need it for our fashion show. With our class, we will have our robots in our fashion show and we are going to make a costume for our robots. BIG shout out to the Artists and Residence for helping us to make our clothes for the fashion show.
This picture on the top is a graph that I have created. My question that I asked to the students was “ What is your favourite sports that you like”. I collected the data by using a chart. The chart show the choices and how many students picked that choice. I have used tally marks because it was easy to count with it. I also wrote all the names of my class so I wouldn’t ask the same person again. When I asked a student, I cross their name. I sometimes forgot and had to remember who I asked.
When I finished asking all the students, I went to this website named “Create a Graph Classic” to create a graph. The students have to pick one of the choices; Soccer, Basketball, Hockey, Tennis and others. Soccer got 6, Basketball got 2, Hockey got 2, Tennis got 3, others got 11.
The scale was 11 and the range was 9. Most was others and least was Basketball and Hockey
Our class was really busy this week ( the last week ). We have been working on our assembly and also the robotics.
For the Assembly, the Central Idea for the Grade 4 was WWA ( who we are ) , People learn different things in various ways. That means people have many ways to learn one thing. For example, 2 students wanted to learn the multiplication. One student learned the multiplication by writing them on a piece of paper. That student is a verbal linguistic learner ( people who learn buy reading and writing ). The other student searched a video for multiplication learners. The student sang a multiplication song out loud. That student is a Musical learner ( A person who learn easily by singing, etc ). These words that describes a person is named “Multiple Intelligences”. Also when making our scripts, we were the first ones to present the assembly. It took me a long time because I had to also perform the French Horn ( instrument ).
Our class has been also working on our Robotics skills. We learned a lot of things like making the robot move, turn, beep the tones, draw/write on the LED screen and other cool coding skills. Next week we our going to have a dance off our robots.
