Last week was my first week of school. My teachers name is Mrs. Newsome and she is super nice! This year I will be studying Slavery, the Human Body, timetables, Brain, Politics, and I will be doing an Operetta. I am most excited about the Operetta (Operetta means an Opera with talking in it) because I have a very big passion for singing and acting, we are doing “The Gypsy Barren”.
One HUGE thing you focus on in grade 5 is Leadership. In October my Class and I will be reading a speech about that topic (I will make sure I am filmed so you all can hear!). I have 4 leadership volunteer projects I am doing – Lost and Found duty, Service club (World Vision), Announcements, Green team (Eco friendly club). So as you can see, it’s hard work.
I mentioned this before but we also learn about the brain. A few days ago we built a model Neuron. Neurons are little brain cells that are all linked together and the make Synapses which are connections.
Outside of school I do a Yoga class, it is so peaceful that I fell asleep in it! We wrote on a stone to explain what virtue we think we show.
