My Design Logo

For our first project in design, we had to design a logo that represents us, express our hobbies, personality and what our passions are.

I would like to get some feedback to improve my logo, so here are some questions…

Do you like my logo? If yes or no, why?

What do you like/dislike about my logo?

Do you think my logo represents me? In what ways?

What would you change about my logo, why?

Unité 1 Parlez – vous français le critère C et D à l’oral


For our first French summative, we had to create a role play with a partner (Gabrielle), using all the information we had learnt from the beginning of the year. For example, whats your name, where do you live, favorite sport/color etc. Here are some strengths and weaknesses Gabrielle and I faced while doing this assignment.

Something I think we did very well was sharing our responsibilities. We both worked together to make the role play and we both wanted to do well. Both of us took notes which made it easier to not miss out any information.                                One of our challenges was time management. We took a long time to get the script done because it wasn’t long enough and then when we wanted to film, it was still too short, although we had added extra context.                                              For next time, we can work on the time management skills but also work on our pronunciation, for example not pronouncing “s” at the end of a sentence or the “s” in the middle of “EST”.

Overall I think we did a great job!


My Instrument Choice

BACKGROUND INFO –> The saxophone is a woodwind instrument. Saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet.

HOW TO CLEAN IT –> Most saxophone cleaning kits come with a brush or cloth on a long string with a weight on the opposite end. Put the weighted end into the bell of the saxophone and turn the sax upside down. Bring the weighted end through the body and come out the narrow end. Gently pull the swab through the body several times.
