Grade 5 has been improving the quality of their captions. Here are some of their ideas on what makes a good caption.
They are now working on some simple comic strips. The focus will be on writing clear, sequenced sentences that explain each stage.
A better world depends on our actions
We look forward to seeing you at the Grade 5 Exhibition.
It will be held in the MPR of the ES. It runs from 8:30am- 2:00pm on Tuesday and 8:30am - 12:00pm on Wednesday.
Grade 5 students are busy working on their Exhibition both in their Home-room and ESL classes.
Here are some of their thoughts on the process so far.
I am enjoying working on my action but it is hard to do the presentation on stage- Toma
I have done a survey and we are doing our action this week- Koei
I'm happy and I want to present what I have learnt to other people. I feel confident about talking to people- Max
I enjoyed making a graph. We are doing an experiment in class. Collecting information has been difficult- HIna
I am working on my poster and the poster will show what I know about haze- Steven
Today I'm working on my Elephant poem. My group is meeting at lunchtime to start on our sculpture- Xian Hang
I'm nervous about the Exhibition day but I have enjoyed learning about my topic- Koharu
Teamwork is the best work-like if you don't have an idea, your friend will think about the idea! It could be a perfect idea! Two is better than one so it could be even better. So you will get an A+ (meaning the score is the best score). If you have good teamwork you get more friendships too! If you are a partner with someone and that partner is not your friend than it is the best chance! Because you might make friends with him! So the best thing is the teamwork.
Friendship is the best because they can help me or I can help them. Helping each other is the best.If we have a very big problem they can help us.Like if I am sick my friends might be doctors and could help me so that that is how friendship works. It will carry on until we pass away. Never ever forget friendship is the most important thing in the world and on earth.
The students applied some of the descriptive language they have been exploring in both Homeroom and our ESL class and wrote some descriptions or poems about mystery objects, places or animals. Can you guess any of these?
A) By Hina
The body is as small as a mouse.
Most of the time it flies with the wind and its family.
Its songs are whispers.
It has two small wings, two legs and a brown body.
B) By Max
I live in China and I am white and black and I eat bamboo or grass. Who am I?
C) By Toma
December 25th. 12:01am. Somebody came into my home wearing a black hat. Guess who is it?
D) By Yutaro
I think it first was made in Nigata. In Nigata lived the little brother Tokugawa and he ate yummy food. He told his brother and it was Tokugawa's favourite food so people say Tokugawa made this food first.
E) By Azusa
It is my lovely friend in summer.
I'm standing on a hot pan.
It's a kingdom that has many castles,
Sometimes the kingdom floods in water.
This kingdom has many ice-creams.
(Answers: A- bird, B- panda, C- a thief, D- sushi, E- the beach)
I will talk about dreams and ambitions. Some of us don't know what to do when they grow up. But some of us wanted to be writers, great scientists, astronauts and business men and I want to be an ice skater. Our teacher wanted to travel all around the world when she was young.
Now I will explain why did they want to get those jobs. First Hina wants to be a writer because she enjoys reading books. Koharu wants to be a scientist because she likes porcupines. Azusa wants to be an astronaut because she likes space. Also she wants to travel all around space. Yutaro wants to be a business man because he wants to earn a lot of money. Also he wants to be normal. Finally I want to be an ice figure skater because when I saw a Korean figure skater in the Olympics I thought it was wonderful acting. Also when I'm on the ice rink it feels so good. Our teacher Ms.Sophie wanted to travel all around the world when she was young and live in at least five different cities, because she just wanted to see the world.
I think we all have and had amazing dreams.
I will work with Grade 5 this year. Welcome to our blog.
Grade 5 will have Withdrawal classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.
Inclusion support for all ESL students occurs at least three times throughout the week.
