WELCOME TO MY BLOG!!!!
I am very excited to go to GSIS as my new school.
五月十日 星期四 雨
In PE, we are playing a sport called Matball. Since our class got quite good at it, we made a league for Matball called MBL. It is like any other league, you play different games sorted by David the Peacock with other teams. It is really fun and you get to wear team shirts. My team chose to wear tank tops and shorts.
The last few weeks at school were really fun because we got to work with Yes Talent as our Artist in residence! This time, we are not doing anything plain like painting or sewing. We are making a mini fashion show instead! Each group will have a limited amount of recycled things like cardboard, tape, shower curtains and such. Using those materials, we will have to create and design a gown or outfit for our “model” to wear. Our group decided our theme to be Flowers and Sunshine so the dress we are creating includes a lot of flowers and warm colors. The dress we designed turned out better than I thought it would be. Since We need a lot of flowers, we made fake flowers with clear paper. Everything was really fun except for the times where I pricked my fingers with a pin (Ouch!!). I think the most enjoyable part was making our dress.
Hezzo people! I’m gonna talk about what happened during the week!
This week was sort of crazy since we have a few days not in school.
Sports Day ( Tuesday):
We had Sports Day on Tuesday this week. It was really fun and I had to run the 400m and 100m race. I won both of the races according to heat but I didn’t get to the finals since a lot of people were faster than me by time. Except for the race, we also did Capture the Flag, Matball, Ball throw and long jump. When we played Capture the Flag, we won the other classes. During Matball, Our team won by 14 points. IN Ball throw, threw till the second cone (about four meters away). Finally, we had Long Jump. I did the jump twice and on the second time, I got 2 meters. I also hit my butt so hard that I can’t sit down properly for the day. I learned to lean forward instead of leaning backward when I jump. At the end of the day, we had Tug of War. Every year, Orca (my house) wins because there are a lot of Orcas and this year was the same. We won the tug of war again.
We had Spotlight on Wednesday afternoon. I was in a group with Charlie, Maegan and Andrew. We were the Dance Group that means we have to dance in front of the audience. It was REALLY embarrassing and humiliating. (I got changed to this group by the teacher). It was also fun because we get to dance around and try something new.
Chinese Field Trip (Thursday):
Today, we went to a Chinese Museum located in Kowloon. We made kites and learned the evolution of Chinese Words
Hello, people of the world,
This week in Math, we learned about equivalent fractions and ways to express a fraction. There are different ways to express a fraction, like, decimals, percentages, shapes and more. We also did a mini test today in class. It was pretty easy because I learned most of the things in my tutor.
This week in PE, we continued to prepare for Sports Day. We had to find our pace in a 400m race and an 800m race. My pace for the 400m was 22 sec each 100m. I think I did a pretty good job despite the fact that I hurt my leg the day before.
In UOI, we are learning about body parts and how our body works. We also learned about nutrition and food that’s good for you.
In Literacy, we learned about poems. A poem that our teacher taught us is The Iron Man. It is a poem about a giant man made from metal. It was mistaken for being a monster and people hated him until he helped save the world from a dragon. After reading the poem and understanding it, we had to make our own versions of the iron man using the eight poetic devices we learned. ( Onomatopoeia, Metaphor, Simile, Rhyme, Personification, Hyperbole, Alliteration and Imagery)
That’s it for today’s post! Stay aweeeesssoooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeee!!!!!!
Helllooooo I’m back!
This week was the first week of school and everything was loads of fun!
In Math, we learned about different ways of calculating multiplication and division. One of the ways we learned is the Area Method. Let’s say you need to calculate 30 x 28. You will first have to draw a grid and separate the numbers. Then, you calculate the numbers you separated. Lastly, you add all the numbers up and you will have the answer!
Central Idea is: Throughout life people experience change for different reasons.
We learned about how our bodies change when we get older. It’s kinda weird learning it, but it doesn’t matter.
We practiced Sports Day and the sports we are going to do. The most fun was Tug of War. The girls won (Woop Woop!) but it was sort of unfair because there are a LOT of girls in the class.
This is going to be the last post of 2017!
This term was a lot of fun and there were a lot of ups and downs. One of the ups is camp. The camp was really fun and we get to learn a lot of survival skills and new games. One of the downs was doing the Math summative assessment. The assessment was a bit hard but I still survived with it!(yay) After a term, I think our class became a mini “family” because we know each other really well and we play with each other every day.The thing I loved so far from grade 5 was the lockers. We can have our own locker instead of cubbies so that other people can’t see our stuff. One thing we can improve on is getting organized. Sometimes, I think that the classroom is a bit messy and our work is everywhere. My favorite thing we learned was the refugee simulator. It was kinda sad and frustrating but it was educational and fun at the same time.
In our unit in Art class, we had to make a peace flag for National Peace Day. We will hang up everyone’s peace flags along the wall to show peace. I think I did pretty well since I am not a really artistic person but I definitely have room for improvement. I could use a thread that’s the same color as the cloth so that the thread won’t stand out too much. I could also use more variety of colors instead of the same old colors.
