Student lead conference 

 Dear parents,

Thank you so much for coming to my student lead conference especially because you have to miss some work, but I’m glad you came.

So this past week I’ve been preparing for this student lead conference. I have made a continuum for my behaviour in school, a grit scale, and a science assessment on water hyacinths. I’ve noticed a difference between my first semester and now. What I noticed was that I’m more caring and think about people and their opinion.

In the grit survey I noticed again that I am caring and also that I’m a hard worker. I wasn’t a 1 or a 5. (1 is the lowest scale) (5 is the highest scale) I basically discovered that I am a caring person, and also I have a belonging need.

  And if you have any questions about my school life, well today your questions will be answered.

                                           Love,

                                          Jigme

Tinker Time~

Today in tinker time I did a contest with Eva and Amelie of who can stay the longest in the front splits and then me Eva Amelie and Hana, well Hana wasn’t there but Hana is in the project, so we decided to make a movie about gymnastics and we were just about to add everyone’s name but then tinker time was over. The movie was gonna be about gymnastics like I said and about what we do in gymnastics so we have to film ourselves doing a gymnastics move we’ve been practicing and then once we’ve filmed ourselves enough then we will put the whole thing in our movie emailing who Evers iPad were using to make the movie and then we edit and were done. Next tinker time we will work on our movie and hope to get the clips at recess.

Tinker time!

Today in tinker time I played a new game in cards Called yawnoff and it was really fun and I could never stop doing it, but the bad thing is that I lost, even though I’m sad I shouldn’t be because it was so fun!!! And of course I played with my friend Emma, and also played with Adian and Ms. Liv.  

Winter break highlights 

I watched the new Star Wars movie and it was awesome and cool and really sad. I also coloured my hair and cut it and I loved it really changed me.And over my winter break I did a lot of water sports and it was awesome!! Like I did snorkelling and paddle board (etc.). And I also had a lot of new food like Sri Lankan food and traditional Maldives food. I really didn’t want to leave but knew that I had to for school so went back to Delhi.

Tinker time

Today in tinker time I decorated my Ranthambore journal so it doesn’t look so boaring like it did before I decorated it.

So I didn’t do origami or the gymnastics video, because two things, I’m already done with the gymnastics video with Eva,Hana, and Amelie. And the other thing is that I’m done with origami like I’m not going to do it now,so I decided to do my notebook and here it is.
  

The FLOOD!!

We were about to have a holiday party, and parents were coming inside the classroom, Mrs. Marina was counting down to 0, “5,4,3,2,1..” ” whoooooshhhhh!!!!!” The water came pouring down  like a monsoon inside our class, and I checked outside if there was rain but there wasn’t a single rain drop so it was the water pipe. It never stopped pouring and pouring so we had to move somewhere else to stay. The classroom was draining with water everywhere, I felt kinda weird cause that never really happens to classrooms and it happened today.

My writing essay for, NO UNFAIR DETAINMENT!!

                                            No Unfair Detainment!                          “I believe that people can speak for themselves and not just be detained.”Because people are allowed to speak for themselves before they are detained.One Day I came home and suddenly my dad grounded me for no reason and that day I came back from a dinner with my cousins and sister and didn’t really give me and my sister a reason why he grounded us, and being grounded is like jail to me.
      I believe from human rights that there should be no one detained without a reason or let them speak at least for themselves, because they get sad and confused, and maybe they did something for a reason but they can’t speak and they don’t have the voice because nobody actually follows human rights so make the human rights true and read along this book.
     One reason is that they feel sad, confused, and lonely. For example, pretend your in prison right now and have no idea why they put you in prison, how would you feel? Probably sad lonely or confused right? So that’s why you shouldn’t just be put in prison like that.

Also, you can’t just put someone in jail like that with no reason, like what if they are innocent and not supposed to be in jail and have been mistaken but other people don’t know because you can’t speak for yourself.

 

    Another reason, is that they can speak for themselves so why can’t they? I have an answer to that,and it is because for example,the people who detain them won’t let them speak because they think there really guilty, and they think they will make up fake stories about why, but the stories might be true, so just let them speak once and see if you think it’s true, don’t just detain them and let them be sad, tell them what they did and let them see if they’re the ones who did it.
     And finally, by the way I got this from an article from newsela,okay back to the example,they might have done something bad for good, like for example, there is a man from Mexico had been sentenced to jail for 22 years because he shot his neighbor, before you say that he should deserve jail but he actually did it for self defence and nobody would believe him because they didn’t let him talk, so now he has to go to jail for 22 years for doing nothing, but the guy after 9 years got to speak for himself and he got free early, after 10 years of prison he got to speak on the 9th year and got free on the 10th because of his supporters. But it’s SO UNFAIR!! Cause he got imprisoned for self defence.
     That’s why NO UNFAIR DETAINMENT!!!, they get sad and confused and don’t know what they did wrong that shouldn’t happen, tell them what they did and see if they’re guilty or not, let’s make the human rights real and not just a writing on a piece of paper.
