6th grade

   This year might as well be the best so far of all my years at school, I  have loved everything about sixth grade. The teachers are really nice and the classes I'm taking are very interesting. I like that we go from class to class and that we have a different teacher for every subject. Thus, never being boring. The subject that I like the most are Humanities. In Humnaities we had to do a debate about Tsunamies and I learned a lot researching the subject. It helped me be aware of other countries' social situations and cope mechanisms with disaster. I am most proud of an article we were assigned to do about an earthquake in El Salvador. I watched videos of interviews with people of the actual event. I also talked to different people that were witnesses. I learned a lot, and I had to do extensive research on the subject and condensed all the information to write an article like report. In the end, I was proud of how it turned out.

I also like the group of students assigned to my section. We all get along great, and help each other out. I still see my other close friends  during breaks and at lunch. Even though, at first it was a little bit hard to get used to different teachers, studying everyday and getting homework, I finally have managed to get a system to help me out with remembering to write down my responsibilities in my planner and completing them in time. I hope to be able to be more responsible and try to get to every class ready and on time. And I also hope we continue to get along great with my classmates for the rest of the year.

Un Regalo Excepcional

Autor: Michael Morpurgo     Ilustrador : Henri Fellner

Mickey, Sam y sus compañeros fueron en autobus a la granja de Devon.
 Sam vivía con su abuelo, nunca hablaba de sus padres. Durante toda la 
semana se olvidaron de sus casas y familiares.  

El trabajo de la granja era duro. Ordeñaban vacas, cuidaban a los caballos
 ovejas, ivan a las colinas a darles leche a  los corderos. 

En el mercado les encantó un pato marrón que estaba a la venta, pero un hombre 
que trataba mal a los animales lo agarró, lo puso de cabeza y dijo que iva a ser su cena! 

Sam compró el pato y se lo regaló a su abueloMuy agradecido lo llevó
 a un lago y lo dejó libre, "allí va a estar muy feliz", dijo. 

Ese pato fue el mejor regalo que alguien le pudo haber dado al abuelo.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

                     J.K ROWLING

2) My favourite character in this book is Harry Potter. 
He is a ten year old wizard boy, rather skinny, with green eyes and  round glasses.  His hair is black and always untidy.  What made him rather unique was a lighting-shaped scar on his forehead . This scar makes him famous because he survived when the greatest dark Lord of black magic (Voldemort) tried to kill him.  He is a talented Quidditch  player (a game played with four balls and on top of a broom).

I like this character because he values friendship above every thing. He is brave and never gives up.  He becomes a great magician.  He wins an important Quidditch match for his house team Griffindor.

Mission to Mars

In our IPC unit we learned about Mission to Mars we had to make our own creative rover
 out of  recycled materials , we had to grow a bean plant to know how to plant them on 
Mars, we also designed our own shelter in 3D, with green houses, kitchens, science rooms and 

We learned that Mars is also called the Red Planet , because of its red , rocky surface. It is
 the 4th planet in the Solar System. The planet mars has lots of sand storms.
Some last days, even months.

Scientists have sent robots to figure out how mars is. The robots have found samples
 of rocks and soil .  They have also found real water under the soil but not as a liquid, as
 a solid. Scientists think that there could had been life on Mars ages ago. The biggest
volcano is called Olympus Mons .
