During our time in P.A, we learned about the blues and a variety of characters about blues. we were also challenged by the teacher to make a blues song and I’m going to write a reflection about it.

I think the things we did well were our investment choice was good they all complemented each other in my opinion. Also, our lyrics were consistent and made sense as well.
Next time we should have sung a bit louder because people watching us said that they could only hear the instruments, not the singing so that’s what I think we should work on.
I would make lyrics a bit longer and added more improvisation into our music.
Some ATL I think we used was respect because we all heard each other ideas and took it into consideration. We also had a good goal-setting also trying to achieve something new.
The hardest thing was probably making the lyrics go together it was hard to make everything make sense but flow together
Overall I found this experience a difficult task to perfect but still found it enjoyable.
I learned a lot from this math unit. I thought I was pretty good at math but I still got a lot to learn. Something I learnt was called BEDMAS it’s a concept that basically talks about how which math term goes first. It goes brackets, exponent, division, action, addition, subtraction. I also learned how to better use a calculator because its an advanced and useful tool people can use for a calculator.
Overall this math unit has taught me a lot the more advanced concept about math.
My goal is to improve my grammar and writing because of its not one of my strongest areas. When people can read my handwriting and MOST of my sentences and spelling be grammatically correct I think by the end of the year I can achieve this goal because I’m not to good at it. It’s very relevant not just in 6th grade but in life internal these are some major skills.
I want to finish this by the End of the year
These past couple of weeks have been a lot of things we had to do but one of the things I really enjoy is probably Novel study we are doing a really fun book called Northern Lights it has a lot of fun and interesting twists which come really unexpectedly there also big suspense and action to if you enjoy fantasy and action i would recommend this book. Anyway, we also learned some writing skills like the correct punctuation need to use when 2 characters are having a conversation. Also, we learned some new vocabulary like festooned, Taters, etc.
Overall the Last weeks were enjoyable and fun (screw Chinese).
I found the unit quite fun being able to choose something that we are actually interested in making it a lot more fun to research. Also, the process that they showed us was unique and something I didn’t expect would work as well as it did.
The research was actually a little difficult because we didn’t really learn how to google search stuff which made it 10x harder
But overall I thought it was quite enjoyable with a variety of time periods at hand which also made it interesting seeing what people would choose!
We arrived at Gilwell by bus and we were introduced to our camp instructor and or Group mates. We were also introduced to the variety of facilities that were in the Gilwell campsite, after that we played some games like Concentration and Ninja. Then we had a sandwich which was fairly solid. After eating we went hiking on the Gilwell Trail on the mountain. After the hike, we arrived back to the campsite and found our tents! I was with Ian and Enoch it was really fun talking about pokemon in our tents. An hour passed by, ( via our free time) so we had to go eat dinner we had this pork and rice thing and it wasn’t half bad. Finally, we got ready to go to bed and at 9:00 it was lights out (we stayed up till 12:00).
On the second day, we got changed and went up for breakfast we had cereal with fruits and it was pretty solid and I enjoyed my self( kinda reminds me of home). After we had a long day ahead and would not be there to the have lunch at Gilwell so we had to pack lunch ( sandwiches ). Also, We went on a bus to go to a Sai Kung which we will go kayaking. We were taught how to kayak and we went and was pretty fun learned about this cool island and we saw it and it had some cool wildlife there. BTW some got pricked by a barnacle and they were bleeding so they sought medical help which really scared. On the way back to the island I was exhausted and could barely row by boat thing and after we took a nice cool shower. It was around 5: 00 pm and we had dinner it was chicken with rice noodles and it was not that good ( the way I say trash). I and my friends went back to our tents and changed and slept.
On the last, we packed our stuff which was a big struggle but lasts ok! Then we had cereal and we had to pack hot dogs for the go because we had to do the high elements which is the definition of a nightmare! So we finally packed and said goodbye.
My favorite thing we did was for sure kayaking because it was a new experience and was generally fun.
The thing I hate was everything! (jk) actually, it was the high elements I hated them and they were unoriginal and trash.
What they could improve was the toilets because they had poop in like 5/7 so that sucked.
我常常一边听音乐一边吃东西。听音乐的时候我学得更好。我觉得我很高，可是有很多人比我更高 。我身高一百五十厘米，我体重四十公斤。 我有黑色的头发，我的眼睛是咖啡色的。
我的性格有一点外向，也有一点内向。我觉得我很自信，因为我不害怕和人们说中文。我很友好，我的朋友们也说我很友好。 这是我的 一到十。
