We, 7J, have been as busy as striped black and yellow bees for the last few weeks.
We painted our way through our silk painting block lesson, which is a fine art in Shearwater's colourful curriculum. We also did two interesting block lessons where our class was split into two groups: half of us went to the heated kitchen to bake and fry with Vanessa, and half of us marched down the hallways, our feet smacking on the concrete like the flippers of a penguin on the ice, to the IT lab, where we learned to close and click and slide on our computers, with Rhys. After two weeks of that we swapped around.
Two weeks later our block changed again. Half the class ambled down the school hallways, while chatting all the way, to the workshop, where we made small wooden boxes with Luke (I'll be doing that next term). The other half went back to the kitchen and, with Akash, we cooked and ate the spicy, fragrant food of Indonesia (yum).
As for our Main Lessons in the morning, for the fist three weeks of the term we dove into the world of medieval times (like a million years ago!) - knights, dragons, castles and fair maidens. At the end we had a fascinating project on medieval history.
Lindel, our maths teacher, then took us through Euclid's famous geometry achievements.
It's hard to write about yourself, but we, 7J, have managed it. With our colourful imaginations, we are currently writing autobiographies, from zero to 13 (I'm up to eight years old). We also followed on with some of the subjects we were doing last year, such as: Indonesian language with Emily (which I find one of my favourite subjects), Eurythmy with Renelle (I find it interesting but I know tons of people love it), English with Julie (I adore English) and Sport with Magnum (Sport is definitely my favourite subject).
I asked some of my fellow 7J students how they were enjoying Class 7 so far. "It's great," said Grethel. "Meh," said Orin. "Better than Class 6," said Luca. "So far, so good," said Stanley. "Good," said Charlie. "Strangely AWESOME," said Mahina.
I love it (singing)!
