We were assigned a summer art project for the next school year (year 10) which will be the start of my GCSE art journey. These are the six pages I have done – not completely finished yet!
At school, in textiles I made a bird plushie. I called it birdie and it took me 2 lessons to make it. I think it turned out really good and I enjoyed making it.
At school, I attend second orchestra (after school on Wednesdays) and today I had a concert. I played in the 2nd violin section. We played ‘the magnificent seven’, ‘carol of the bells’, ‘the longest day’ and ,how to train a dragon’.
This is the sixth year we have made a family album.
The mathematics challenge for year 5 is when the best school in each town competes against the rest of the county. The first place in each of the heats and the highest scoring second place go through. This year, me and 3 other classmates were selected to represent my school and we tied being the highest scoring second place. We came 6th out of the 20 schools that participated this year in the final. Continue reading “Year 5 Mathematics Challenge”
Sutton mock test is a test they do so you can have a feel of the actual exam pressure. They give you papers to do and then a couple of weeks later they give you the results. Last year I came 63 (not counting the absent people) out of 1500 candidates. This year, how likely do you think it will be for me to come in the top 20?
At the moment I am preparing for the entrance examinations for secondary school and today I did a sample paper from St Paul’s Girls’ School that I really enjoyed doing. My favourite questions were questions 9&10. The paper is in three sections: A, B and C. A has 20 questions, B has 10 and C has 5. It was a little hard but I got around 89%. I hope you’ll have a go!
In school we are learning about the Ancient Greeks. I have already read some Percy Jackson books and they are awesome! Some of my favourite myths are:
- Perseus and Medusa
- Dionysus and the pirates
- The four seasons
- Theseus and the Minotaur
- and Pandora’s box
We have just began this topic and it is really exciting so far. I can even write some Greek. Continue reading “Greek Mythology”
At school, we do a Christmas play each year. This year’s theme was pantomimes so my class did “Peter Pan”. I was the Director in the play and the shows went wonderfully well. This year was the first time I ever got to say some lines because last year I was a tree, the year before I was a dancer, before that I was a lost boy but all I got to do was scream. I had a lot of fun in the show so I hope you will agree if you have to ever do a Christmas show!
