“Performing Arts Blues Project Reflection”

In performing arts, we studied the blues. After we got use to it, we made a performance and filled out a work sheet using the blues pattern.

The process for planning and making this project was planning out the lyrics, then sorting out the roles, mixing up the blues music with the lyrics so it sounded good, then just practiced, practiced and finally, performed!

I think our cooperation between each other went well, because we helped each other on things we found challenging, and together we over came certain obstacles easily! Although I think our ending could have been better, because it didn’t really feel like an ending. We could have made it more clear. By perhaps using a different instrument?

However, over all I very much enjoyed planning and doing this project because, it was such a fun experience making up funny lyrics, and blues music with my friends! Thank you Ms Benusa, and Ms Butler!

#PYPX proposal

  this post is about my upcoming PYPX proposal.  i am doing it on Tuesday. Hopefully I will get approved! (fingers crossed!) Right now I was just in the middle of revising my final proposal planner. I am quite nervous, but at the same time excited! If I don’t get approved, it’s ok! It just means that I need a little more understanding and preparation. At first, i thought that I had a lot of time to prep for the PYPX . However now, if i look back, It’s not much time. Instead of delaying everything till the last minute, I thought about starting now. That way, I could get a better result! I hope I get approved in my proposal and further more, in my PYP!


Since I’m new to this school and also the IB program, I want to learn more about it. I already had a few lessons about it however I want to know more!

I learned about the learner profile, trans disciplinary theme and the concepts. the learner profile contains skills we should develop. Such as inquirers, communicators, Risk -takers and many more. I think I should improve on being a risk taker, stepping out of my comfort zone. I think these learner profiles can be very helpful to me throughout my learning.

the concepts explains a variety of concepts like form, function, connection, change…. these help me a lot in preparing my PYPX proposal and I think it would help me in my actual PYPX too!

the trans disciplinary theme is who we are, how the world works, where we are in place and time….. These themes help me understand the whole thing more clearly.

I hope I get to know more about the IB system by the end of this year!;)
