The young Americans were incredible. They showed a type of energy that we were forced to reflect and that was incredible. I believe it was a really good idea that Cdnis le the young Americans come to do a show with us. They’re not just amazing performers they’re but also people who can have fun with the students. I feel like everyone delivers to have the Young Americans for at least one or two days. And I can’t even explain the experience and the adrenaline you get when you’re with them.
This year for my progress report I was really proud of myself. I had improved in areas I hoped to improve in so that’s always a plus. The big one was me mentally It said I had become more open-minded to things and being able to stay positive. It was a massive flaw when i was in 5th grade and it really stopped me from truly enjoying and being myself in 5th grade.
I think this year was an ok year for me. At the start of the year my mental state was so bad. I look back on the things I said about me other and my life it was really a struggle and I wish I had spoken out about my mental struggle. But I think my mental state now is so much better it is truly an improvement form before and probably my biggest change that I’m proud of in 2019.
Another thing I improved on this year was being open-minded last year I was really not open-minded. I really feel like that improved this year. I also grew to enjoy my hobbies a lot more and pursed them when I had free time.
I hope in 2020 I can grow as a person and improve all the things about myself.
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.
