This year in science, we did many things like learning about random stuff, and we also got to chose what we want to do a experiment about, and in a small group, we would do the experiment we chose.
My favorite thing we did in science this year was the shoe experiment I did with Josefine. It was about which shoe will stay on the plank longest, while we piled up books and made the angle of the plank higher and see how many books will make the shoe move. I thought hiking boots will stay on the plank the longest, but the heels actually stayed on the plank longest.
I also liked doing the crystals experiment. In a small group, we had to heat up some water, put some potassium nitrate in the water and watch crystals form.
For this unit in PE, we did Gymnastics. It was my favorite part of PE this year. We got into groups and we chose a song and we made a gymnastics routine/ sequence. In our group, there was Mimi, Marina, Maya and me. This is the video of our group’s gymnastics performance.↑
The skills we used were Cartwheels, Forward rolls, Backward rolls, moves from the paper with many different moves for 2 people and 3 people, and things on the vault.
I think our sequence went well with the music but first, we were going to do a different song, but it didn’t match our sequence so we changed the song. I think the order of how we put the movements were ok.
The skill that was hardest for me was to keep balance when I was standing on Mimi and Marina. I was able to overcome it because Mimi and Marina and Maya was holding me.
The skill I enjoyed the most was the vault because its cool.:)
I think our group used the practice time well though we also spent some of the time watching other peoples practices. I would improve the sequence by maybe making it a bit longer and to use the vault more because we only used it twice.
I think the performance went ok and I really enjoyed doing this unit.
