This week, the things that I have found interesting was the robot programming and the Woodworking with a famous woodworker named Wong Tin Yan. For Robotics, we used a robot so we can program it on the computer.
Firstly, about the robot, we learned and did complex steps to do the programming for the robot. We plugged in a USB and did some other steps. When we started programming we had to check so if the computer is sending signals to the robot. We programmed a simple thing that the robot can do. If it doesn’t do the thing that it told the computer, that means the computer and the robot would not move or do anything.
For the woodworking, we worked together with Me, Jacob, Jeffrey, Alec, Eden and Daphne worked as a team to build a house but we didn’t finish it. We learned and used tools to stick, cut and curve wood. We used a lot of tools to stick, cut and curve wood. We used a Japanese sword and a American sword.
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.
Hello and this is Hajime. This is my first blog post. My class is 4B. My favorite subject is Math and literacy. My strength is are P.E because I like it. I also love writing Chinese phrases and writing things. Most of my strategies I use from math. I sometimes remember some of the math sentence. My interests and hobbies are using the computers because I love using computers. I go to a coding school to learn about coding and making games in Scratch. I am looking forward to using the computers in grade four. I am also looking forward to doing some math and handwriting tests in grade four. my goals in grade four are computer skills. I want to improve on typing skills and setting some things in my computer. I also want to improve on my math and writing skills. For writing skills, I want to improve on handwriting and work on grammar skills. My friends in my class are Alec, Jeffrey, Takdeer and Jacob. I have many more friends in other classes.
