P.E. AND NEW EQUIPMENT IN THE CANTEEN
Mr. Inman prepared a session for the Grade 5’s to play table tennis. We played table tennis in PE and we went against each other in groups of 2 or 3. Most of the groups went team by team like 2 versus 2. We played table tennis or dodgeball. It was pretty fun and we enjoyed very much playing table tennis. All the students are really pleased that we have some new sport equipment to use in the canteen!
WORKING ON OUR SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT TASK
As you know, our central idea for our unit that is almost finished is: Media influences the way we think and act. This week we have been preparing and practicing our Summative Assessment. Our Summative task is that we are supposed to think about a country and audience that needs a product that is reliable to their society. We need to use different media strategies and a specific type of media for our product. You would have learned about the different types of media and media strategies in previous blog posts so if you are not sure, go back and view these posts! Many different countries were represented by our grade level and we really enjoyed the process of the Summative Task.
Here are a couple Summative Tasks (Ponnya and Sofija) where the presentation was in a video form:
For this week's assembly we had a special performance from the mandarin students from Grade 1, Grade 3 and Grade 5. It was about the zodiac animals and the story of the order of the zodiac animals. They costumed the zodiac animals as well! We really appreciated the performance because as you know Chinese New Year is very soon! Well done to all the performing students for their creative performances!
Guest Speaker on Media:
This week we had a special guest come in to help us and talk about how media works. The special guest was a mother from another class called Vasya. She talked about how media influences people/audience, she also talked about branding in her presentation on media. We enjoyed learning about media and branding. We felt enthusiastic and interested in this discussion/talk about branding and how media/social media work.
So what do you think of what we did? Would you like to share anything about media? It would be a pleasure if you can comment your answer.
Central Idea Workshop with Ms. Skrtic:
After that We had our wonderful school principal come in and talk to us about how to create a Central idea. We had a small workshop where we did fun things like coming up with the absolute worst idea which was hilarious! When looking at other people’s central ideas we compared our central ideas to each other, also we came up with the best central idea. We had a criteria for making one and the best central idea would be our central idea for the next unit! Overall it was a fantastic experience and we hope that we can do this again. Can you make the best central idea or the worst central idea? It would be a pleasure if you can comment your answer.
READING BUDDIES with K2:
This week we also had our wonderful reading buddies from K2 (K stands for kindergarten) came to read books with us. We did activities with them such as drawing our favourite pictures and characters that came from the book. Overall, all of us had a blast and so did the Kindergarten students. We felt appreciated our wonderful time with the students and had tons of fun. Have you ever had a reading buddy when you were at school? It would be a pleasure if you can comment your answer.
