5th Grade Stuff

Remember 4th Grade Stuff? This is 5th Grade Stuff!

Who I am In Chinese

你好!

这是我的自画像:

我叫谢锐!今年我11岁。我是在2004年7月20日在加拿大出生的。我现在在蛇口国际学校读六年级。我是一个有苹果一样的圆脸的男孩子。长着一对双眼皮的大眼晴,头发又黑又密,永远是又干又薄的嘴唇,我的鼻子不高也不低比较小,最有特点的是耳朵。我这么认为,是因为它们会动。而且两边会一起动哦!这是我。你见过吗?
我家里有妈妈,爸爸,婆婆和我。妈妈是为360工作的,爸爸是炒股的,婆婆以前是一个建筑设计师,但现在她为我们专职做家务。有一次妈妈带回来了两只可爱的小公仓鼠。我们全家都很喜欢,外婆一直照顾着它们。养了两年后,有一只病死了,还有一只老死了。所以妈妈又带回来了一只母仓鼠。结果又过了一年多,也死了。于是妈妈这次带回一只乌龟。可是任性的妈妈却把乌龟放到厕所里,结果它就神秘失踪了。从此以后我们就不养宠物了。

我喜欢科学,书,美剧,和柯南。我长大后,我想当一位化学家,发明一个比汽油更环保的,能够减少能耗又可以回收的超级汽油。
我觉的我和科学很有关。是因为我的生日是在Apollo 11 登月的那一天。这是为什么我喜欢科学!我的偶像是 Nikola Tesla,我想成为像他一样当科学家。我在学校里不会经常交朋友,但我有好几个知心朋友。我喜欢跟他们聊天。所以我认为我是一个内向的人。
我不像别的男孩子一样,热爱运动。但我还是很喜欢打冰球。这是因为我是加拿大人,所以我喜欢打我的国球。我到现在己经打了两年了,可是我滑冰滑了七年了。是因为我住在罗湖的时候,那边的滑冰场只有教花样滑冰,没有冰球。

我的妈妈说我有地中海贫血。我也很容易得低血糖。有一次,我打冰球前没有吃饱,打到一半时头晕就不能打了。所以以后我打冰球前都会吃饱。我现在住在蛇口,我每天走路上学。现在我上六年级了,又交了新的朋友。我每周上3次冰球课,一次吉他课和一次中文课。我的生活非常丰富。
这就是独一无二的我!

Unit 8 Math Test Reflection

Bonjour!

Whoa, whoa! Chill! I totally understand why you are extremely extremely X-tra extremely mad at me for posting another Math Test Reflection! I think’s it’s annoying too, alright?! It’s not that I want to post Math Reflections! I think that they’re stupid too!!! So chill, OK? Don’t break my collarbone! Posting math reflections isn’t something I want to do, but something I have to!

Here’s the math reflection (don’t smash your computer. Instead, just don’t read the what’s below) :

3 things that I did well:

-Finding common denominators
-Adding mixed numbers
-Converting between fractions, decimals, and percents.

2 things that I am not so good at:

-Comparing fractions
-Multiplying mixed numbers

Have a nice day (and chill!)!

Walk-A-Thon

Hey followers!

This morning we had a walk-a-thon. You know how people participate in marathons to raise money for breast cancer awareness, AIDS , stuff like that? Well, this is a Walk-A-Thon. Recently and unfortunately, A 8.1 (I think) magnitude earthquake stuck Nepal. Everyone had to donate at least 10 RMB. I brought 200. All the money is going to Nepal for the rescue effort that they desperately needs. I would like to take this moment and opportunity to wish the people of Nepal the best of luck and our wishes to them.

Best hopes,

Loring :~)

Spray Paint Art Project!

Hey there!

If you’ve read the title, then you’d know that our Art teacher is cool enough that she lets us use spray paint for a art project (thanks Mrs. Mcrea!). Here is my artwork:

What’s that? You want to see the uncensored version of my artwork? You’ll regret that decision but… I’ll show you it anyways. Only AFTER you read my reflection on it. We started out with a stencil of our faces. The stencil was made with a Exacto knife. I like my colour and I chose them because they look like the tie-dye pj’s that I tie-dyed myself. Honestly, my stencil would’ve looked a lot better if I was not extremely bored by having to write poetry at the time the picture was taken. The good part about it was that the colour matching (in my opinion) was really good. The bad part? My face. Period. Like I promised, here is the uncensored version of the photo:

Told you!!!

I despise my own face,

Music Concert Reflection!

Aloha!

Just last Thursday, we had our long-awaited 5th & 4th Grade concert! The theme of the songs was “enjoy your youth” or something like that. We even had a awesome guy play the flute and a Djembe! I personally think that we sung very fine. I dressed a little less appropriately though, to be honest. It also turns out that breath mints don’t really help in concerts. 5th Grade and 4th Grade sang three songs together too. Two of which is well-known. “The Climb” was sung by Miley Cyrus (who I am not a fan of, being honest) and the extremely well-known “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors was also sung. Some of us (not me) did awkward things on stage. Here is a video of the songs that fifth grade sung, and the ones that Grade 5&4 sang together.

Be 🙂 !

Mrs. Frisby and The Rats of Nimh Review

Hey there!

Just today, we finished a wonderful book called Mrs. Frisby and The Rats of Nimh. The book is about a family of mice and their connection to the rats of Nimh. Mrs. Frisby’so husband, Jonathan Frisby, has recently died, leaving Mrs. Frisby with her four children, Melissa, Martin, Teresa, and the youngest, Timothy. Some of you might have read this book which was published quite a while ago. This story is about Timothy getting sick, and moving day. Moving Day happens when the farmer plows the land where Mrs. Frisby and her family lives. Throughout this book, Mrs. Frisby will discover the story of The Rats of Nimh, the truth about her husband, some more friends (and fiends), and one heck of a adventure! I think that this book is a good one, though parts of it is sad and the ending (in my personal opinion) is quite disappointing.

Langtau Island Field Trip Refelction

Hey guys & gals,

On April Fools Day, which is April 1st, to April second, the entire 5th Grade went to Hong Kong’s beautiful Lantau Island and we stayed overnight in a place called the YWCA ( you know YMCA? This is the Young WOMAN’s Christian association ) the 5th Grade teachers also split all of the 5th grade students in two halves, so each group was about 20 people or so. The first day our group we went to rid half of a tiny beach of trash. In the afternoon, we planted our own trees and we had to climb a mountain on Lantau for about half an hour, (maybe even a little longer). Then we had to climb the SECOND half of the mountain to plant the trees.
On the second day we went to learn about environments like the wet marshland and the dry marshland. They were both full of BUFFALOS! BUFFALO! But Bill wasn’t there. Aww 🙁 . Then it’s me and Jialiang (and maybe Leo)’s favourite part, SWIMMING IN THE BEACH (different beach. Not the one where we picked up the trash). Overall, the trip was extremely fun and we learned a lot about our environment and how to protect it.

Here is a slideshow of all the photos we took:

Bye and make sure you help protect our earth!

Princess Diana M&S Project

Hi there!

Recently in class we have been working on a project called Movers&Shakers. It is about you choosing someone you would like to research, then by impersonating your person, explain why you are a mover/shaker via a video that’s less than 5 minutes. I researched Princess Diana, aka Diana Spencer, and yes, I had to impersonate her through the use of an old wig (and that’s only the beginning: someone even offered lip gloss!). This video was made and published with the use of two apps: iMovie and a little known but better than iMovie app called Touchcast. The video itself is published onto YouTube, and below is the video. To me and the rest of my (intriguingly amused) classmates, the video is really worth watching!

Laters,

Loring

Unit 6 Math Test Reflection

Howdy, partner!

It’s that time again! Math reflection time! In unit 6, we learned about making stem-and-leaf plots (which I got an exemplary on), find common denominators, and add and subtract fractions with different denominators. I here, got 4 approaching’s, 1 exemplary and all other 11 grades were proficient (which meant I hit the expectations). Adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators turned out to be easy to me even though it was new, as I received a proficient on it. What I expected in this unit’s grades were at least 6 approaching’s, as this unit was hard for me during class and homework. I suppose that I overestimated this unit, and if I concentrate well enough, my abilities might as well be far beyond my expectations! However, I did have problems estimating fraction sums, and my goal for double-checking needs to kick in again.

See you next time,

Loring
