I was asking my parents about what my name meant because it was Greek. So I went on to dictionary and this is what it told me:
 Greek Mythology a Titaness, daughter of Uranus (Heaven) and Gaia (Earth). She became the mother of Leto and thus the grandmother of Apollo and Artemis. In the later Greek writers, her name was often used for Selene (Moon).
 
I am so sad to say that this is my very last blog post of Grade 5 AB. I really enjoyed blogging with weebly and being able to share what I have been doing in school.
 
Writing:
Deep Water Bay Dragon boating:
I think that this is one of my best pieces because I think that I put a lot of details and effort in to making this blog post really detailed.

My Birthday Party:
I think that this is one of my best pieces of writing on my blog because I really wrote a lot on what I think that I put in every last details that happened at my awesome 11th birthday party. I was really happy when I had all my friends over helping me celebrate my birthday party.

Tai Tam Tuk
In this piece I think that I showed my best areas of writing and the traits of writing too. I was proud to finalize the piece and finish checking it. I think that I put the best areas of the day and made sure that stuff that did not need to be in there was not in there. I have to say and you can not deny it because this is one of my favourite pieces of writing.

Math:
In every test I think that  did really well in the test because I practiced on Mathletics because if I practiced the tests I think that it would help me get ready for the fraction division problem’s that we had the test.
 


Camp:
Over Camp I think that the most important test was to stay positive about things that were not working 100%. I think that because we did this skill really well we were able to get through camp whilst staying positive. I really enjoyed the Tyrollean traverse. I liked the Tyrollean and the abseil the most because they were the most challenging activity’s that we did. I was really happy to have done these activity’s. I have to say that I was really annoyed when I sprained my ankle.

On Sunday my whole family came down to Tai Tam Tuk to see the dragon boat races. I was super excited when I was asked to drum yet again - it is super dee dooper fun! I got to drum for the mixed team. I was really excited because it was the first race of the day. I drumed the Mixed team to victory!! My Dad kept saying how proud he was with me and blah blah blah... At the end of the races the adults had to chug either wine or beer as fast as they could. Then the anouncer saw kids with coke and decided that the kids should have a go chugging down a full to the rim with diet coke and fatty coke mixed together! YUCKY! At the end of the races we where awarded trophys! And of course I get to collect them for the: Mixed races, the Mens races and how can I forget the awesome women races! I love drumming for BGC Stormy Dragons because they make me feel special. I would not have drummed if Cheryl kindly offered it to me. So thank you Cheryl!
 
I hope you enjoy our 5th Grade band.
 
Presentation:

I think that the Grade 5 PYP Exhibition 2010 was the best exhibition I have ever seen. I was really proud of the work that my group did because we had so many comments saying: "Cool work, nice job, Well written letters" and so much more! I think that the way we showed our information was one of the ays that made it such a great success. I was really happy that the younger kids( K5-K3). The proof of that is my little sister Thea kept telling me over and over again how much she wanted to go back and see it all over again!

Individual:

I was really happy to know that people and teachers enjoyed looking at my stand. I had chosen Pink Dolphins. Pink Dolphins are a tough topic because there are only about 120 of them left in Hong Kong Waters. I was really excited about having the dolphins as my topic. I really enjoyed learning all that big amount more than what I knew before I started researching. I have seen the dolphins and they are Pink! I saw them with the Hong Kong Dolphin Watch in Lantau.
Improving:

I think that we could have improved by having a book or something for the younger kids. All I know for sure is that having an Xtranormal made it a fun entertaining time for every one who watched the movie. I think that if we had a game for the younger ones too that would be a help too.
 
On Sunday,May the 9th I got to drum for my parent's dragon boat team - BGC Stormie Dargons. My first thought was: "What on earth am I doing at the front of this dragon boat for?" then I answered it. The answer was: because I am a Junior Stormie member. When we first drummed for the boat I was really scared that I might fall off. I thought that because the boats were shaking and that means my high seat was a scary place to be. It was really cool because my Mum's friends were right in front of me on point, which is the front seat of the boat. My Mum said that "If I fell off everyone on the boat I was drumming for and everyone on her boat would immediatly jump in after me!" My reaction was WOW! I did not realise how special it was being the drummer at 11. In all three of our races the womens A boat came first then my B boat always came fifth. The "A" boat was full of people who practised at least 3 times a week. Then the "B" boat is full of people who can not make it to all of the practise's, then again they also have the most amazing new comers too! I was really proud to be offered to drum because that meant I was some way a drummer for them. At the end I was congratulated by everyone who paddled on my boat. I also got a thank you and well done from the boats coach Bill. When Bill told me this I was away inthe angels because that really made my day. Then at the end of the races everyone was allowed to fresshen up for the award ceremony. The "A" boat won 1 trophy and 1 big roasted piggy! We then had a special barbeque that had been planned for us. I have to admit that the pig went down like water throught a sive!
 
Yesterday in Netball Hong Kong Academy played a match against French International School - International stream. We played really well. In the first half I think we scored two points and in the second at the very end just before the whistle blew I scored our third goal. FIS in the first half only scored one goal so in the second half I guess it was obvious who was going to win the game. I was so happy to win!
 
This rubric is on what I think that I have done. I think that I did really well on my scores. I hope you agree with what I have chosen.

Now that our exhibition is only a week a way, I feel a bit nervous. I think that we are really happy with the Marine Club idea. This idea was Dawson's. I think that the best part about it is that we all get a membership card and then we can learn tons of different things on how to save lots of the Marine animals. We will be trying to get people to sign up for the club during the exhibition. I think that our main audience will be G3~G5 students. I think that the most important thing is that we can make this sustainable. I really hope that we get more than 10 people in the Marine Club. I think that the bigger the group the more fun we will have.
