This week was long. But we learn’t a lot from our amazing teacher, Ms.Laura.
Camp was a great experience this year, we did a lot of things that was really fun. This year, we went to Tai Tam. My camp leaders were Safara and Emmanuel, they were really nice and they organised a lot of fun activities. My favourite one was pier jumping because it was really fun and scary since I was the first student to jump. I was really scared at first, but I found that it was safe since we had life jackets. The least favourite thing that happened in camp was that there was a lot of mosquito and it was really sunny. I got a lot of mosquito bites even though I put on a lot of mosquito repellent.
I thought that building a raft was a challenge for me because I am really bad at tying knots and learning how to do it wasn’t simple. Now, I can tie different knots really easily. After camp, I think that I learnt a lot of new survival skills and this camp made me more confident.
Display About Trafficking Pangolins
Selene and I made a display about trafficking pangolins. We used different materials to design this display, and gave in a lot of effort. This issue is bothering us because these cute animals are endangered, but some people just choose to eat them, use their scales to make soup to heal bodies, or just sell them for a extremely high price. Some people don’t even know that it is illegal. All this trafficking is affecting the community! It affects the community by having more and more traffickers because pangolins are worth a really high price! What builds the community with pangolins is that pangolin meat can heal certain illnesses like: Mental illness and unexpected fevers. In conclusion, we really need to save pangolins because if we don’t it will spoil the community. Everyone, Take action! Save Pangolins!
Pangolins are cute and endangered animals, they live in hot places like the Sahara Desert, the rainforests in China and also some other places in Asia. Pangolins are mammals and that means that they give birth like humans do. Pangolins have protective keratin scales which help them protect from predators. They eat insects like gummy mucus, mantis stick and some others. There are eight different kinds of pangolin species, Chinese pangolins, Indian pangolins, Sunda pangolins, Philippine pangolins, Tree pangolins, Long-Tailed pangolins, giant pangolins and Temminck pangolins. The giant pangolin is the most biggest and heaviest pangolin species, and they live in west Africa. The standard size of the giant pangolins is about a hundred and forty centimeters long (4.6 feet).But the biggest problem about the pangolins, is that they are really endangered animals.
People around the world never think about the cute endangered pangolins, and a lot of them hurt these cute friends of ours. People in China catches them and eats them while they are so precious. Some of them even sell them to other people for ten thousand Hong Kong dollars! Now we have to stop some of these bad and harmful people. If I had a right to do this, I would like to put up posters and do a protest to spread this message so I can express my ideas. I would prefer to put up colourful poster and make it outstanding. I am really happy to know that WWF (Worldwide Fund For Nature) is helping these pangolins, on the WWF website, there was a part where it let you adopt a pangolin. This doesn’t mean that you take it home, but it mean to have relationship with the pangolins. I would like to do that, because it helps pangolins and I can learn more about them. I wish that everyone could try to adopt a endangered animals.
This may be my last post of grade 4! But don’t worry I will write more in grade 5! I had enjoyed how fun grade 4 was. Time just went so fast. From the first day of school to the last day of school felt like a minute ago. I learnt a lot from grade 4. Meeting a student teacher was a great experience, learning with her was fun. But I mostly appreciate the fun we had with Mr.Brown, he was a fabulous teacher! I met great friends which were always happy and nice.
Grade 5 is coming! Yeah!!! Being on the 8th floor should be much better. We are gonna get lockers which I am really excited of. I would love to meet my new teacher. He/she should be a fabulous teacher like Mr.Brown. I would wish all my friends and classmates good luck and hope they enjoy their next year in grade 5! Bye! Also I wish that everyone have a happy summer holiday!
Hope you have a great year in CDNIS!!! Oh yeah! Bye Finn and Samantha!
Today lets play an emoji game! So first you close your eyes and put your thumb on the screen. Easy and simple, let’s get started.

Last week, we just did a really cool thing called a light painting. A light painting is something that includes glow sticks and action. We needed to stick glow sticks on your shoe and your hands, then we needed to do a dance movement. Like doing circles with your hands, cartwheels, kicking…… It was cool because our performing arts teacher (Ms.Butler) Had this app called Pablo and it turned the movements into a painting. The first time I saw it I was not really impressed, I thought our painting wasn’t that good, because the Pablo app only captured the green and a little of blue. Next time I can be ready with the right colours and a better movement. But it is fine for the first time. Not that bad! This is our painting down below.⬇️
