Creative Thinking:

In many classes like Music, I&S, Drama, PE, we need to be creative. In PE, we had to create some part of the dance “Get Low” in this unit. This is the TSCs. (the link in here) In the Criterion B: Planning for the performance, we should create a good dance by using the right space, level and many other things if we want get a 7 or a an 8.

In Drama class, we had create many things: plays  Link(This is the mine unite. We have to create many plays, which the actors can’t speak in the whole play.), a speech and many more. We had to keep our mind open to create an outstanding ones.

In music class, we had to sing a song we choose. You can sing and play any instruments you wanted. Here is the video:

Collaboration skull:

We have to collaborate a lot in many classes, like I&S, Drama, Music, P.E. and many more. We had did a lot of group projects. For example, we have to teach a 5 minutes class about an empire and one of his colony. Here is the video:

The I&S class

Here is the script:


We must collaborate will to create a thing together. 1st is equality. We must do the same measure of work like write the script and read in class. 2nd a leader. It is OK if there are no a person who asked everyone in the group call him caption but there must be a person who can plan the work. Sometime I planed it.

Information Literary Skull:

We found information on the internet almost in every day and every subject.

We use google first, then spray to other web sites.

This year, the teachers teaches us how to research in many classes. We use brain pop, Britannica School and many more weds.

I&S is almost the most hard research because their are many words which are very hard.

In Art, we researched the information about famous artists and artworks.




Art research in my Art note book about Rembrandt, Durer and Van Gogh.

Media literacy Skull:

We learned to use many kinds of media to spray a information, like speeches, make posters and many more.

Organisation Skull(Improve):

I think I really have to improve this skull because time is so important and I am really not good at it.

In Tutor class, Ms. Madrid teacher us we do not have so much time but so many things to do. So, we have to manage our time perfectly. Also, we learned many ways to help us to manage it like use Pomodoro time and make homework buddies.

Pomodoro Time

My own idea to manage the time is that use a table which have everything you have to do for the day on it. If you  finish one of it, make a check sign on it. It helps a lot to me.

In EAL class, we set goals every week for the time of reading and Quizlet to organ us.

In Japanese and Math class, we do not use those skulls a lot.



The End.

Science: Eye Dissection
