Last Friday was International Day.First thing in the morning, we went to the upper playground tent wearing our traditional clothes.The flag bearers would step up to the microphone and say ‘hello’ in their language.After that there were a lot of performances.My favorite was the choir performance, because I heard many different languages in their singing.
Then there was the exit parade as the countries went to their classes to do high school workshops.Our class had grade 10 teaching us how to make water filters.
Last, there was the International Day Buffet! I never knew there were so many countries.Everything was just simply delicious!
I think this International Day was the best.It truly is the highlight of the year!
From last week, our class started doing a game called ‘Loop Cards’.It is a game where the first person reads out their card, which, for example,’I have 9:30.Who has 12:05?’.And then the person who has the card 12:05 will go stand next to the first person and read whatever that says on their card, and on and on.We are measuring our time and our high score is 7 minutes and 42 seconds.
‘Loop Cards’ is a very fun game!!!
A couple of weeks ago, we went on a trip to the science center because our unit was about invention that have changed the world.We also went to a greek invention that was on the science center, there we learned about greek people a long long long time ago.After that we went to see many cool things. We was together with grade 3.2 .At the science center we saw many cool and new things like it was a thing that was could yoyo maxwheel .That I liked most about this trip was to see all the cool and new things.
This week we learned about right angles, acute angles, and obtuse angles. First, we got a sheet that puts the information in it, and an angle eater to find all the angles on different kinds of objects, we were supposed to find one of each angle. We also could figure out which angle with the angle eater, because it represents all of the angles that are used in this period. The important part was when we were searching for the objects that is one type of angle, i think of this because we are using thinking skills. I think the ATL we are using in this period is Thinking Skills because we are using our brains to see if it is a right angle, acute angle, or a obtuse angle. This was so fun for all of us today!
Thank you for reading.
One day G4 invited G3 to the speech of WWF. we listened about many animals sad things and good thing. The sad thing is many animal killed by people. The good thing is the number of endangered animals is decreasing.
We learn about line plot and bar chart in math also data mean information.
The line plot and bar chart is not the same because bar chart have key but line plot don’t have key.
When we interpret data in bar chart we need to use these words, almost half, almost all,more than half,very few,less than half.
When interpret data in line plot we find mode,range,outlier and what is lowest,highest value,what is most and fewest amount of data.
G3 inquiring about system in Unit of inquiry. My group choose recycling & trash system.
Dante’s group said first we need to find out what our system mean. My group was so interesting about that because our group always use Google doc first. My group learn that firstly, our group need to find out our system mean. We find out Germany has best recycling system. I love UOI because I can learn from research!
Last week we began a new system in class whereby we now have class bloggers. This means that every few weeks, the students will volunteer to work on the class blog. They'll write about the things they enjoyed the most. At the moment, our class bloggers are Kansuke, Koshiro and Shu. It's a long process as the students will write a draft of their article, we will edit it together and then it'll be published. So thank you for being patient in waiting for new posts over the last few weeks.
