I demonstrated research skills in the subject of science. In the class of science, I was able to successfully gather a series of information from multiple sources in order to provide accurate facts and figures for my assignments. In addition, I have learnt how to improved my use of keywords, which has helped me to narrow down search results and access relevant answers.
Social skills are abilities that I have demonstrated in most subjects. I believe that I have shown these skills most effectively in the classes of music and physical education (PE).
In music, my group and I have worked on constructing a song from scratch. I have consistently collaborated with my group members in order to create different roles for different instruments to play. I have discussed and actively engaged in conversations which has helped to improve and make changes to the final piece.
In PE, I have interacted with classmates in order to discuss strategies and tactics to help win games as a team. Furthermore, I have communicated with my teammates on the handball court to give advice and help. In addition, I have worked with my teammates to use the attacking/defensive principles of play in matches.
I have shown the communication skill in drama, english, and art.
In drama, I have communicated not just verbally but also throughout the use of facial expressions and body language. Moreover, I used the elements of drama in order to convey a simple message or a story in unit 1. In unit 2, I used my body stance and positioning to show my character for the Commedia d’ell arte.
For english, I have effectively shown communication skills throughout my writing samples. I have conveyed a story in my creative writing prompt and analysed the message and symbols in the novel “Skellig” by David Almond in unit 1.
I was able to communicate my personal interests and tastes in art throughout the construction of multiple pots. I created a coil pot and a pinch pot and designed them according to my interests and hobbies.
I showed a variety of thinking skills in the subjects of design and individuals and societies.
In design, I demonstrated both creative thinking skills and critical thinking skills. I used creative thinking skills when I was generating ideas for my animation, while I used critical thinking skills to analyse whether these ideas would be realistic and/or easy to make.
For Individuals & Societies, I used critical thinking skills in order to analyse and compare the development of different nations and the impacts of each nation during the data for development unit. I transferred my previous knowledge to make connections and bonds between information from unit 1 to unit 2.
In the subject of Spanish, I think that I am performing a good job of self-management. I have been able to stay on top of my homework and manage all of my papers in my binder. I have found the time to study new words and revise the phrases/expressions that I learnt in class.
However, I still need to improve on my self-management skills for math. Although I have been able to complete my homework on time, I still need to find time to revise and study my notes so that I can feel more confident during tests.
||For next semester, I would like to start being more productive and organised by prioritizing my homework. I will check the due date for each homework assignment and start on the assignment that has the closest due date, which will help me to finish the task on time.
||I would like to manage my time and use it effectively next semester. I have not been achieving the grades that I have wanted this semester due to amounts of homework and assignments. By spending time on revising, practicing, and looking over my notes, I will be able to score better on my tests and assessments.
||Finally, I would like to take neater notes. Since some of my notes were disorganised and untidy this semester, I was not able to read my own notes and lost key information as a result. Thus, I would like to focus on creating organised, neat notes for next semester in order to be successful when I revise my notes.
