Learning Plan Review

Multicultral Week

On Tuesday (the 21st) it was Multicultural Day, some parents came to teach us about some different countries/cultures. The first rotation I had was sort of like art, but the Chinese name for it was Spring. Something I learnt was that it was called Spring and that if you put it up to a window then the sun will shine through it and it will make a sort of pattern.

After we learnt Spring we went into our next rotation, CHOPSTICKS! I haven't properly used chopsticks before, but I was excited to learn! When the lady went to teach us I couldn't really see because there were so many people crowding her. So when I went to get a jellybean it was really hard, I had to try and try and then I after about 10 minutes of trying to get one I got one! Then it was time for the next rotation and it was Henna. The girls got to go first for Henna, and while we were lining up the boys and the other girls that could have Henna next they went to go learn about Israel. I was one of the first people to get Henna so when I was done I got to go learn about Israel myself! The most interesting thing I learnt about Israel is that there's a place call the Dead Sea, and if you stand/lie on the dead sea then it will make you FLOAT!

After Morning Tea we got to go to our next rotation, learning about Russia! It was really exciting when we entered the Year 7/8 hub. The most interesting fact I learnt about Russia was that hundreds of years ago some men and women made a building WITHOUT nails!

I used Growth Mindset today by not giving up with the chopsticks even though it was really hard!
