Hi! My name is Chelsea. I am in 5a and I am looking forward to everything we will be doing this year. I hope you enjoy my blog!
在这个HWEO我学了很多的词语和句型。我学了很多东西。 我和我的朋友很喜欢用电脑交流。 我常常用电脑交流。我可以成为一个负责任的人，因为老师说话的时候，我举手再说话。这是我学的东西。
Amelia 和她的姐姐Emily 住在一个很好的社区。 他们有很多不同的需要，他们需要水，食物，学校，家和家人。这个社区不但有很多他们需要的组织而且这些组织都很好。
Amelia 和 Emily 最喜欢旅行和吃过不同国家的美食。 有一天， Amelia和Emily去他们的社区的一家餐厅。 这个的餐厅离他们的家不远。他们对服务员说：“我们可以有一份菜单吗？“ 服务员说：”好“。 一分钟以后，服务员给他们菜单。 他们说我们要一盘烤鸭和包子。十五分钟以后服务员把他们的食物给他们。 吃了以后， 他们觉得食物味道差。
他们都很想去亚洲旅行，因为他们想吃日本菜，所以Amelia和Emily去日本。 到达日本以后，他们坐机场快线去酒店。 在机场快线上，Amelia 十分着急，因为他的书不见了。 Emily 问： “ Amelia 你带着你的书吗？” Amelia 说：“ 我带着了”。 Amelia说：“我找不到我的书。“没关系，我们可以在这里再买一本一样的书。”
在家我说了一点点中文。 我不知道我长大以后想做什么 。
In the previous unit of U.O.I, I researched and learnt a lot about the rain gauge and the inventor of the rain gauge, Jang Yeong Sil. Since I learnt a lot about the rain gauge I will tell you some stuff about it. The first thing you should know about the rain gauge is probably what it was made for. The rain gauge was made for especially farmers because they couldn’t know about how much rain would come in a certain place. Which meant that their plant couldn’t grow very successfully. The rain gauge is still used now because we still need it, sometimes it could be used for different reasons than growing crops more successfully. The rain gauge before and the rain gauge now looks extremely different and has a lot of differences. For example, the rain gauge before had a long cylinder on the top and a large stone rectangular cube but the one now is just a small transparent cylinder.
Being a 5A student makes me have a lot of responsibilities. For example, I need to do all of my homework before the due date and I also have to manage myself to have good behaviour. Some people also have jobs to do everyday in the classroom such as cleaning the reading corner or making sure that the laptops are all charged. I try to be more responsible by organising my thing and my stuff which actually helps me helps me not to forget my things from the classroom, pitch or the library.
Our class started an A.I.R project this year, which was basically making some kind of wearable art and picking a model to wear it. To make the clothes, we needed to use used stuff and try not buy the materials and recycle it to make wearable art based on a topic that was related to our U.O.I. My group’s topic was positive emotions and our model was Ashlyn.
People can have positive emotions either when they exercise or when they are happy. Serotonin is the hormone that is boosted from doing exercise. When serotonin is boosted they make you exercise more, or enjoy exercising. Meanwhile, dopamine hormones, also known as your reward or pleasure seeking hormone, go around your bloodstream and make you feel happy. Happiness can come from anything such as birdwatching, playing games, talking with your friends and making things. Wearing clothes that has positive colours on could also make you feel happy. This is why my A.I.R group is making our wonky dress yellow.
When your hormone starts changing during puberty, you start to become more moody and you want to be more individual. In this case you might have fights with you friends and family because of your hormones. This is why we thought that having positive emotions are important! When me and my group learned about this in class, we decided that we should use this topic.
For the A.I.R project each group had to have four people or more. My group had five people and they were Ashlyn, Anna, Maddy, Joseph and me. My group cooperated well, and all of us had at least one thing they were in charge of. For example Ashlyn, Joseph and me all worked on the dress while Maddy and Anna worked on the reversible poncho ( Although we are not making the poncho since it’s going to need a lot of time). My group was quite creative since we thought of putting fairy lights that was a bit of a ombre that was positive colours to negative colours that ends at the bottom of our wonky dress. We also thought of putting gigantic fortune tellers as bis as a chair on our dress.
The central idea of the How We Organize Ourselves unit was “ Being organized empowers us to take action more effectively”. We were divided into groups depending on which organizations we were researching for Two Presents. My group did research on a organization called Clean Air Network. Clean Air Network’s mission was to make Hong Kong with clean air.
There are many different kinds of organizational forms such as Co- Op , family owned businesses and corporations. Being to own a family owned business can have even better trust in families after they face success, but one of the disadvantages could be that it could also impact relationships negatively.
Before working on our projects we had to do some research on our organization. For example I had to fill out a planning sheet and do my research on Clean Air. We also made a google doc that tells you everything we were going to make. Me and my group made two worksheets, two activity games, one dot to dot and three colouring papers but we decided to only use the digital colouring paper because we didn’t have time to scan all the hand drawn ones.
After all, the website that we worked for was Two Presents and on Friday our products were uploaded to the Two Presents’s website. We found out that Two Presents’s mission is to stop people from wasting toys and making them support a charity at the same time.
I think I was a good visionary and bridge builder in my group because I gave some of my ideas to my group with details. I also listened to my other teammates which made me a good bridge builder. Some things that I think I could improve next time, is to be a better doer since I didn’t make anything except a colouring paper, math worksheet and a dot to dot.
Have you ever wondered how uncomfortable it would be if you had to share your room with three people? Have you thought about how cramped up it will be if you had to share your kitchen with six families? Well… there are actual people who live like this even now, and we got to see this when we went to asbury centre for our field trip. This was a very interesting trip because we got to go to actual cage homes! Before we came to Asbury centre, our class got to learn about cage homes and sub divided flats, which made it easier for me to understand when they (Asbury centre) were talking about it with the grade 5s. We learned what cage homes are and how it is illegal to do this in Hong Kong.
Asbury centre’s mission is to help people who lives in subdivided homes. At the Asbury Centre we had a guest speaker which was a man who actually lives in a subdivided unit. He gave us an interesting presentation and a photo of where he lives. When I looked at the photo it looked like a very clean and modern looking house, but when he explained it to us he said that it was actually suppose to be an office which made the place very small. I found a lot of things very satisfying in this trip such as the man who lived in the small subdivided place and the grandpa who lives with his wife and his granddaughter in a subdivided unit. I found that the grandpa had to sleep with his wife and his granddaughter in the same room which was no more than a bit more smaller than half of my room (which is very small) extremely satisfying also because I would never want to sleep in a very small room with two other people.
I and my group worked well when we had to shop for food to give to the grandpa and his wife and the little girl by having people have a role (kind of ) such as Maddy who translated and me and Ashlyn who bought the food and Moorea to keep the money. I think I worked the same as other people in my group because we all did our things and tried to be polite to the grandpa.
If I was to go to Asbury centre again I think I would try to speak more Mandarin than English, and learn how to say my questions in Mandarin because this time I didn’t know how to speak Mandarin so I wasn’t able to ask my questions. Most importantly, it was a very interesting field trip and I would love to go again and learn more about subdivided homes.
