Today we did Technology with Ms Sackey. The lesson was about controlling Spheros. We learned how to make them draw by coding them. Another thing we did today was Art with Mr Watts. We made tall buildings with incredible details. I accidentally put paint all over myself and on the table but I managed to clean it up.
Next, we did Peer Support. We were asking yr 11 about secondary school and we all had lots of questions. I feel quite good asking them about secondary because we got a really good idea of what will happen in secondary school.
Learning in secondary looks like it’s going to be a fun experience. Secondary school looks very fun and interesting, I am looking forward to it.
My first day in secondary went amazingly, my favourite subject was science with Mr Hazelton. We also did pastoral care, peer support and maths with Mrs Huntley, which was really fun. My understanding of secondary school is now much clearer, I know what type of lessons we will have and how we will go about them.
*wish* i could have been more involved in my maths experience, but otherwise it was fun.
My second secondary experience day was fun and I really enjoyed peer support. I think that the activity we did related to secondary school in a way that was easy to grasp and was really fun.
*wish* I could have done sport, which I couldn’t because of my knee injury.
Today was my favourite day in secondary. We did art and actually used paint. We also did technology with Ms Sackey – it was really cool. We were using Spheros which we never do in primary school, this shows that you get much more opportunities in high school.
*Wish* we could have done food technology. Continue reading “Reflection amelie”
Today in secondary school we did Technology and we controlled these little robot things called Spheroes. We programmed them and drew shapes with them onto paper. In Visual Art, we made paintings of buildings and that was really good. We also did Peer Support and we asked the high school students some questions.
Sam Choi: Mr Hazelton’s Science class was fun and exciting. We also did Pastoral Care, Peer Support, and Maths. I think secondary school is very different from primary school. One of the reasons I like change is because you get new things to learn with, and you make new friends.
*wish* the building of our math project went better.
Sam: PDHPE was fun and it was my best subject ever. It is the best because I enjoyed the sport part of it and I enjoyed it when we talked about the negatives, the positives, and the neutrals about changes that are going to happen in the next few years.
*star* peer support
*wish* I could have participated in the learning part of PDHPE better.
Sam : Today was great and Mr. Watt’s art class was fun. Ms Sackey’s Sphero class was great and coding the Sphero was fun too. I have never gotten to do anything like what we did in Technology in primary school and that shows that you get more opportunities in secondary school than in primary school.
It was so fun, Mr Hazelton made science really fun, we made paper change colour. It was my favourite part of the day. We also had maths, pastoral care, and peer support. Secondary school is so much different to primary but way more fun. I like change and secondary school is a big change but that is good.
*wish* I could have participated better in maths.
Day 2 PDHPE was the best subject we got fit and active and we got to talk a lot. Peer support was good to we got play a ball game.
Today was the best so far we got to draw with robots; it was amazing. Also in art we got to make cities with paint. Peer Support was also good. I got to learn a lot more about high school.
Over all reflection: High school is amazing. I’m so glad I got this experience to learn more and talk to high schoolers. I can’t wait until high school because Science, Maths and Tech. I hope one day I will get to do this with other kids when I’m in year 11. I loved secondary school I hade so much fun this week I can’t wait till I’m in secondary school.
Today in art we did some cool paintings of a deserted city. Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of art. But today it was intersting.
And I had fun.
I reckon a lot of people liked Peer support – In Peer Support, we did a good activity. It was really fun and everyone liked it. We had to make a sculpture made out of playdough and our team had to guess what it was. It revolved around teamwork. It was hard but heaps of fun. Our team ended up coming 2nd. It made everyone really happy (year 5 boys).
Today we were in groups of our age group. (Year 5 girls, Year 5 boys, Year 6 girls, Year 6 boys) We all had a go at making something out of play dough. We all had someone guess our play dough creation really fast. It took no one more than 1 minute to work it out.
Today in tech we played with these little robots called spheros. They are controlled by iPads on an app.We put cups on them with a pen attached. The whole aim of it was to draw a picture by coding – the best lesson so far.
In Maths today we had to make a marble go down a construction (ramp) and land in a cup. It was hard, but fun. Our group did not make it work. I was sad but it was fun still. We had a future engineer in our group called Noah!
Our secondary experience has been wonderful. We unanimously agreed that it was the best day of our year so far. We think that some aspects of secondary school is very different to primary school. Like in Art, we actually used paint (Mrs Willis 😇🤣😛). We thouroghly enjoyed Technology. In fact, applause to Ms Sackey as it was our favourite subject followed closely by Science. We loved all aspects of it. Although secondary is very different to primary school, things like different classes for different subjects, locks on the lockers and they do food tech. Overall, I can not wait for high school – my experience could have been even better if Mrs Willis was a high school teacher 👏🏼😀😀😜
Today in Tech we played with these little robots called Sphero. They are controlled by iPads on an app. We put cups on them it, with a pen attached and it was very funny. The whole aim of it was to draw a picture with the pen. It was fun but hard. My two stars and a wish are my wish is I wish I could drive the shperos around the media centre and my two stars are I loved putting cups on the shperos it is sooo funny my other star is programming and doing code for it was fun.
In Technology we programmed Spheros to go in a square with an app called Sphero edu. We also programmed them to draw shapes on a large piece of paper, we did this by putting a cup on the Sphero and taping a pen/marker to the cup. So when the Sphero moved, it would draw a shape of whatever the programme was. Secondary Technology is very different to primary Technology because in primary you only do things that envolve exploring how to use google and chrome properly. I much prefer secondary school Technology, you get to play with robots. Here is a picture of the Sphero, drawing and a video of the drawing. 80B43462-81ED-468D-B72A-905CA40015A9
