My favourite unit was the “Festival Food” unit, but I liked the Family Timeline project the best. I learnt the “Festival Food” unit the best. I think the most meaningful unit was the I love my family unit, because we learnt about our families. I liked the festival food unit the best because we talked about food.

How is your recording the same as the original song? Why did you do this?
I made it about the same beat, so it is slow. I did this because it’s supposed to be a lullaby, and supposed to be very soothing. Another thing that’s the same is the melody that I replicated with the piano. I did that because I wanted a melody that I could do in Garage Band and that I could easily find tutorials for.
How is your recording different compared to the original song? What were your reasons behind your decisions?
It’s different because in the original there isn’t any drumming or chords. I put the drums because I wanted a beat, and I put the chords because the piano was going to be the closest to the melody, as it is very complicated and I wanted something simple in the song.
I’m not very good at playing the ukulele, so I did the best I could during the time I had. I think I could have done it better if I could have had more time to practice. I recorded it live so I wouldn’t have to edit anything. It took a few times before I was satisfied with it but I think I did it as good as I could have.
Garageband editing – digital instrument, drum use…
I am most confident in the digital instrument I chose, the piano. I am confident because I found lots of tutorials, so I chose the one that sounded best to me. I think the drums might be my weakest point, as I didn’t understand how they worked.
Time management for your project…
I think the time management was very good, as I finished parts in stages. I did the strumming, then the singing, the drums, I finally finished the piano last, and that took the most time, as it was very complicated.
Independent learning… (responsibility of getting things done on time)
I think I did well, and I don’t think that I messed up anything, and I guess I am good at independent learning as I didn’t need much help from others. I think I’m very responsible, as I submitted it on time, and I think I managed my time very well.
What sort of rhythms are used in your song? How were they used musically?
The pulse starts on a pickup. The rhythm is a slow waltz. There are quarter notes and some half notes. They are used to make the song sound slow, as it is supposed to be a lullaby. There is also at least 1 full note, as that makes the end fade into nothing.
Discuss your note accuracy and rhythm accuracy in regards to your strumming and melodic playing…
I think I got all the notes correct, as I studied them well and practiced a lot before I recorded them. I think my strumming rhythm was a bit off, as it had to start after the first note, so it was a bit off-key. I think I got the chords correct though.
What Ukulele skills have you acquired? Chords, melody, etc.
Before this year, I didn’t know how to pluck melodic notes, and now I think my strumming skills have improved a lot. I also learned how to tune better, as last year I didn’t get many chances to tune a uke. I learned how to play better as last year we only got to play for a few lessons.
How did you decide your tempo to match your song and style? Did the context of the song change because of this?
My tempo was really slow, as Amazing Grace is supposed to be a lullaby, and I don’t think the context changed much as it’s supposed to be slow. I had to cut a lot, as some parts were too slow and some were too fast.
How did you use the editing tools in Garageband? Trimming, Cutting, pasting, metronome, etc…
I used the metronome when I was using headphones so you couldn’t hear it in the recording. I used the trimming tool, as I had to stop recording a bit after I stopped playing so that you wouldn’t hear the click in the recording.
Discuss your recording process; recording bar at a time, chord at a time, in phrases? Did you have any concerns or issues?
I recorded a line at a time, and I sometimes had a few problems because I haven’t used Garage Band before. I always asked for help, and I finished the recording in time, as I came to record during lunch. I didn’t have any concerns, but I had one issue at the beginning, as I didn’t know how to turn off the metronome so that I could listen to my recording, but someone helped me.
Hi everyone! This post is about my french oral. We were put in pairs. My partner, who I will not name, and I worked together really well, and I think that we made a really good recording. Our task was to record a conversation in French, with all the vocab that we had learned. For example, quel âge as-tu? J’ai onze ans. That means: how old are you? I am 11.
One of the challenges that we had was pronunciations because this is the first year we are learning french. One of the other hard things was probably trying to not use more than 4 “et toi”s (and you) in the conversation.
I had really good results, I got 7/8 and 7/8. I had a lot of fun doing everything. I want to stay with this score for the next french test because it is a very good score for my first french test.
This is our central idea: economic activities are constantly evolving to meet people’s needs.
I learned about economic activities in Wong Chuk Hang and about different ways to communicate. There are WeChat, Skype, and Gmail. The place I am doing well on is our project. What I do better is that I can do my assessment better.
Sorry I haven’t been posting, we’ve just been really busy here in 6E. Anyways, we just came back from camp last week. This camp was a bit longer than G5, G4 and G3 because this one was 4 days, 3 nights. We slept in tents 2 nights, and dorms 1 night. My tent and dorm mates were Anne-Marie and Zada.
Camp had some fun things, but a lot of the time it was not fun. This was because, while we were hiking to our second campsite, 4 of our group members got stung by bees😣. So, we had to wait for the ones that got more stings to get special cream on. The 1 pro of that was that when we finished the hike, we took the bus to our campsite. The nights in tents were very uncomfortable😑. You would expect that the dorms would be more comfy, but that still wasn’t really comfy.
The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t that enjoyable. When we were camping, we had to make the food by ourselves, and only the girls helped. (Though I am not complaining!) I think all of our breakfasts were good. Our lunches were also good.
Something that is really funny, is that on our first morning, Anne-Marie and I wore the same shirt and same brand of pants! Even though we were in the same tent as each other, we totally did not plan that.My favourite activity was the Getty Jump. It’s were you have to jump off a really high pier. It was scary at first, but it was really fun once I was in the water.
