Communication Skills:

Even through it still need to be improved, I am very successful in communication comparing to last school year. This is mainly because of 2 reasons:

  1. My English got improved. This is very important since it will  makes me have the ability to show my idea more clearly and accurate. Also, at will make the misunderstanding less than before.
  2. Practice from the assessment. To get better at the skills of communication and speaking, we need practice, especially in group project because you need to communicate and collaborate well as a member of the group. I had been practicing with out knowing those skills in the group project

Group projects:

Drama: Commedia dell’arte

Math Casino project

Class discussions in:
Art, Science, And more…

Drama play

Music project in the future…

In art class, we learned that how to show our point in artworks.

In Science, we did a infographic(信息图表 in Chinese) to show a effect of Acid Rain

In English, we learned that how to communicate with symbols.

Thinking

Creative thinking

We mainly learnt creative thinking in Drama. We have to think and creative Lazzi and a play.

In Art class, we have to be creative in both Cri.A and Cri.C for brain storming ideas.

Critical thinking

In the I&S Country Development unit, I learnt the basic ways to analysis a country, and life of the citizens who live there. We learnt what makes a country good, and some problems that the country is facing.

In PE class, we analysed 2 videos from 4 to show the understanding of  principles for both attacking and defending. Both of them have 3 inside.

Transfer

Transfer is very important in real life since that is the purpose of learning.

I transfer the defensive principles of play, especially compact, in the basketball matches. It works a lot since I am mainly defending the area near the basket, which is the easiest place to score, and this principle made me defence well.

In art class last year, we learnt show to show the emphasis by shape, size and colour. This year, when I was making the slide show for what is the best metal for bike frame, I used colour to show the important information.

Also, I reflect myself in Basketball, which we learnt a lot about in middle school.

Self-management

Organisation

Even through I still need improvement on this one, I had been improved than last year of balancing the working time(HW, Piano, Reading…) and free time(games, videos, general having fun). This improvement come from one objective factor and a subjective factor. The objective factor is that we got more HW in class than last year, and the subjective factor is that I think I need to work harder than last year since from next year, we will become very busy since we will be in high school.

Also, we have to organise our time well in class, too. This mainly happens in art, as we were making clay works, we have to organise our time wisely since there are a lot of work to be done in a short time.

Affective Skill

Affective Skill is all about controlling my own emotion. I think I need to work on that a lot since I am emotional, which makes me hurt other people around me.

Reflection

I am always reflect myself a lot, both in positive way and negative way. Also, I always reflect myself out side school. For example, I always reflect myself in basketball this season.

Research

Information literacy.

I had been improved on researching than last year since I kind of find out the pattern of researching with Google, which make me get the information I need faster. I did this by reading the description relate to my key works on Google.

Media literacy

In this year, we learnt a lot of information from the media other than text.

Videos:

We watched videos in class for learning in Drama, Science, I&S, English, PE and more. Also, in French, we use song to learn French, too.

Overall goal(smart goal)

1. Manage my time for sleeping more wisely.(go to bed earlier fall a sleep)

2. Make more friends.

3. Think more positively and adjust myself when things went wrong.
