Today was really fun,. My favourite part was Technology with Ms Sackey. We programmed spheros to make a shape or picture on a big piece of paper. We also did Art, and Peer Support. I have never gotten to do anything like what we did in Technology which shows that you get much more opportunities in high school.
In Art with Mr Watts, we painted a spooky, abandoned, city, with blue, white, black, and green paint.
In Peer Support we did a Question and Answer. I asked the questions “what was the hardest thing you thought would be going into secondary school and was it? How do you keep your assignments and homework organized? What is the best thing about high school?
Day one of the Secondary School Experience was great! I really enjoyed the classes, my favourite part was Science with Mr Hazelton. We put turmeric and methylated spirits on toilet paper and saw what colour it turned in an acidic mix, and a based mix. We also did Peer Support, Maths, and Pastoral Care.
In pastoral care we where put in to groups and we sat in a circle, we chose one person to get to shape or object from Bronte and they had to make it with play dough, their teammates had to guess what they where making, and the first group finished got to go out to out to recess first.
In Maths we made a paper tunnel in our groups to carry a marble from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’. We made the marble travel slower and faster, using only 2 pieces of cardboard, sticky tape, scissors, 2 cups and the marble.
In pastoral care we filled out worksheets asking us if we feel safe in the social media community, which social media sites we use and why.
The classes are much different in secondary school than in primary school in regards to classwork, you get more of an opinion during discussions, and you have different classes in different classrooms, rather than in the one classroom.
