Bangkok Patana Teachers Invited to International Space Station

 

In recognition of the school's true international status (current student enrolment represents 63 different nationalities), Bangkok Patana School has been approached by the International Space Station (ISS) to assist in the pre-selection of teachers to take part in future missions.

Dr MacGregor from the Secondary Science Faculty explains more.

"The International Space Station is a space environment research laboratory where crew members conduct experiments in a variety of fields. The station is also used for the testing of systems, equipment and personnel required for future missions to the Moon and Mars. The five agencies who work together on the ISS want to pre-test and select teachers to accompany the first mission to a lunar base settlement. Their role will be to help establish the first school in space, in conjunction with Virgin Galactic."

One of the rooms in the Conference Centre has been transformed into a zero gravity environment so the first stage of testing can commence here at school; teachers need to see if they are able to cope with prolonged periods of time at zero gravity as for many people this can bring on extreme feelings of nausea. Those who make it through this physical trial will then have to undertake rigorous tests in problem solving and critical thinking.

Mrs Madden is one of the staff members planning to try out. "I am very excited, it is my dream to lead an International Award expedition to space and it seems like this is even closer to becoming a reality."

Think your teacher is out of this world? Nominate them for the space try outs by completing and submitting this form.

 

 

We love Miss KIRI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Dear Mrs Measures,

 

Congratulations on being chosen for the new space mission.

I will miss you when you go into space- do you know how long you will be going for?

I hope the training isn’t too hard- but luckily you are very fit from exercising so much and you lead a healthy lifestyle- eating and drinking well.

Perhaps I could look after your Prada handbag while you are gone?

 

Love

Miss Kiri

 

PS You won’t need your high heels in space.  What size are your feet?

 

Can I identify causes and effects of pollution?

OIL SLICKS

Healthy , happy birds

Water clean and fresh

Uh-oh

Oil tanker spill

Feathers sticky

oil floats on the surface

Clean with detergent

Can the birds, plants and fish survive?

What happened when the detergent hit the oil slick?

The effects stay in the water cycle for a long time.

How long?

What are the consequences?

What can we do to prevent this?

VICTORIAN UPDATE!

Published Thursday, March 27, 2014.
Last updated: Thursday, March 27, 2014
Gruel, stern teachers and the cane. You have all these things to look forward to in Term 3. As well as learning all about an era (a time in history) of amazing scientific discoveries and technological change.
 
Victorian Day is on Wednesday 23rd April (the first week back at school after the holidays). We spend the whole day 'in-role' as Victorian school children and teachers.
 
You will want to start thinking about your costume now. Victorian costumes are fairly simple. For the boys, a pair of dark shorts with a collared shirt and waistcoat is fine. Perhaps a flat cap to finish off the look.

For the girls, a simple dark dress with a white apron over the top has been a popular choice in previous years.

We want to make things as realistic as possible, so no jewelery, wrist bands, watches or fancy hair ties will be allowed. Remember - simple is best. You are not a rich child. Rich children would have been educated at home. No suits or fancy dresses please!

Some photos of past Victorian Days below:

Victorian Names

You will need a suitably Victorian sounding name for Victorian Day. The teachers will also be using a new name. You will be meeting, amongst others, Mr Barnabus Neville Grind, Miss Constance Wackit and Mr Severus Glare.

These websites will help you choose a name:

TUESDAY home learning is to make your front and back cover for your lost story.

Look at some of your books at home and see how the author has designed the cover of their book to be eye-catching and give you a clue about the story.

You need to include these elements:

Front cover - title of your story, author name (you!), maybe an award logo or "from the author who brought you...." etc.

Back cover - title of your story, author name, barcode, SPACE FOR BLURB (Don't write this - we are doing it during classtime), an award logo, publisher logo, a quote from a newspaper or reviewer etc.

This is due on WEDNESDAY. Email it to YOURSELF when you are finished, so that you can use it in school and print A5. Then, in Wednesday's lesson, we will write the blurb. This MUST be completed by Wednesday otherwise you won't be able to share it with Mum and Dad at the 3 Way Conferences.

Content

You talk very informatively about your topic, giving lots of details and examples, and you have clearly thought carefully about what will interest the audience (your class).

You speak with ‘your own voice’, and your talk is clearly written by you.

You talk generally about your topic and don’t use much detail or your talk is little too detailed.

Your talk is mainly in ‘your own voice’.

You are not very well informed about your topic and cannot say much about it.

Your talk is taken entirely from the internet.

Content Structure

You talk logically, introducing your topic and topic areas clearly, moving from general to specific and making links between what you talk about.

Your talk is about three minutes long.

Sometimes the links between the things you are talking about are not that clear.

Your talk is either too long or too short.

Your talk is not organised logically. You switch from one bit to another and back again.

Your talk is either too long or too short.

Presentation

Skills

You speak clearly, enthusiastically and at a steady ‘listenable’ pace. You look at your audience and hardly ever at your notes (or don’t use them).

You look at your teacher and at your notes regularly but not for the whole time. You are a little quiet and maybe rush through some parts.

You speak very quietly or mumble and don’t change your tone at all. It seems you are not interested. You read from your powerpoint/prezi or notes.

Visual Aid

The images on your powerpoint/prezi add interest and meaning to what you are saying in a way that helps the audience’s understanding. It is not so detailed that it takes over your audience’s attention.

The images on your powerpoint/prezi are about what you are saying. There is some text that you don’t really need, but not too much.

Your powerpoint/prezi either has far too much text, or contains pictures that do not really link with what you are saying.

The Earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. These gases are called greenhouse gases. Warmer temperatures are causing other changes around the world, such as melting glaciers and stronger storms.
These changes are happening because the Earth's air, water, and land are all linked to the climate. The Earth's climate has changed before, but this time is different. People are causing these changes.

Why is it important we act now?

This chart shows why the world is in trouble.

Over the last couple of decades, the amount of energy people use (red line), their economic activity (green line), the electricity they use (black line), the world's population (yellow line), and their carbon dioxide emissions (blue line) have all increased inexorably.

Can the world continue to develop at such a pace without experiencing an environmental and social catastrophe?

 

On Saturday, March 29th, 8:30 - 9:30 pm, cities across Canada, and around the world will turn off their lights for Earth Hour, a WWF event to raise awareness about climate change and symbolize that, working together the people of the world can make a difference in the fight against climate change. In support of Earth Hour and WWF, turn off your lights for an hour

You look at your teacher and at your notes regularly but not for the whole time. You are a little quiet and maybe rush through some parts.

Visual Aid

The images on your powerpoint/prezi add interest and meaning to what you are saying in a way that helps the audience’s understanding. It is not so detailed that it takes over your audience’s attention.

The images on your powerpoint/prezi are about what you are saying. There is some text that you don’t really need, but not too much.

Your powerpoint/prezi either has far too much text, or contains pictures that do not really link with what you are saying.

Over the next two weeks you should spending your Tuesday and Wednesday home learning time to finish your matrix project (minimum 60 raindrops) making sure it is presented nicely in a book or a folder and prepare for the presentation you are going to give to the class.

We will start hearing the presentations on Monday 24th March (or before if people are ready). I will give you a day on which you will be giving your talk.

Aim to keep your topic precise.

For example, just 'Rainforests' or 'Rainforest Animals' is too big a topic, but 'Chameleons' is not. We are discussing ideas for you to focus on in class.

The next step is research and note taking. You should take notes in your own words, and only include things you understand and that you think will be interesting to your audience.

After this, start writing up your notes and practise, practise, practise. The more you practise, the better your delivery will be and the less nervous you will be.

You need to talk to the class, not read to us! You can have notes to help you along, but aim to NOT read directly from them. This is easier if you practise and really understand what you are saying.

Please create a powerpoint or prezi to go alongside your talk, but remember it must be mainly pictures. You don’t want your audience to be reading, you want them to be listening to you.

It would also be good to make a model or bring something in to help us understand more about what you are talking about, but you do not have to do this. In years gone by some creative children have given their talk in role!

I will be giving you feedback both on the content (information) and the delivery (speaking) of your presentation.

Have a look at this to see what we will be looking for:

Sawasdee kha Chockchai Farm,

 

My class and I are learning about energy this week, it is part of our rivers and rainforest learning. We recently visited Khao Yai and stayed close by and enjoyed a number of activities from bat watching to studying the flora and fauna in the National park. Year 5 adore Khao Yai!

 

Fortunately, last weekend I visited your farm with my twin sons (for the third time, we love it!) and I noticed your BIO FUELS TENT next to the milking station. Please can you tell us about this?

 

5M would like to know

  • Why and how do you collect the gas?
  • Is it methane?
  • Is it flammable?
  • What do you do with the BIO FUEL?
  • Do you use the cow dung / manure to put on your vegetables?
  • Are your plants organic?
  • Does using renewable energy sources help you save money?

 

We look forward to hearing from you and learning more!

Best wishes,

 

Mrs Measures and 5M

Can I judge sources?

Are the websites you are using for research and inquiry the best?

remember your ABCDE!

No wiki's!

We then judged 2 or 3 sites were they

  • an authority? (an expert)
  • BIASED? prefer one opinion more than another (not factual)
  • current (up to date)?
  • Easy to read and navigate around?

It was a useful skill to practice

We shared our findings

Our research skills are improving daily!

SAY NO TO ASK AND WIKIS!

Persuasive?
When is EARTH DAY this year?
How will you show you care?

H/L

Monday-Maths, assessment corrections and maths whizz (Lauren and Anthony you can do BLOG maths)

Tuesday-Literacy (see below, show not tell)

Wednesday- Connected Learning, matrix and presentation preparation

Good writers use show not tell to reveal (show) what characters are like. You can do this by describing what the character looks like, what they do, or by adding some dialogue. Here are some examples:

Tell: The boy from the rainforest was kind and looked fun.

Show: The boy from the rainforest walked towards me and held out his empty hands in what looked like a friendly greeting. He had a twinkle in his eye as he smiled at me.

Tell: Mrs Snapdragon was mean.

Show: Mrs Snapdragon’s upper lip curled as she shot a look of fury at me. She beckoned me towards her desk with her bony finger and let me stand let me stand there, waiting for her anger.

Try turning these character sentences into much better character descriptions using show not tell. Two or three quality sentences for each will do the job. A thesaurus will be useful to use some impressive words.

Please record your sentences into your red home learning books.

Bert Biglow was nasty.

Mr Root was nervous.

Leslie was very energetic.

Susan was fed up.

Little Eric was lazy.

John Fume was angry.

 

I look forward to reading your descriptions.

 

AREA AND PERIMETER

Which is which? What do they have in common?

How can you remember perimeter cm and area cm2?

 
 
This is great for studying the differences between the two
 
 
 
Press on this presentation for Year 5 examples
 
 
Have fun on this game testing your skills.
This is great, watch it!

Precipitation

 

RAIN! Falls down due to gravity.

When it is too heavy for the cloud to hold precipitation occurs, snowfall if it is really cold!

We made water cycles

We predicted what would happen

We were teachers, what made the writing successful?

What target did you give the writer?

What are their next steps forward?

Happy birthday

A cloud :)

Adding precipitation

 

WHY is there more condensation in the morning?

Why could you see your breath in Khao Yai?

Is this useful?
 
Mathematics
You can calculate the area and perimeter of compound shapes !
Now we shall focus on angles
(NOT ANGELS) 
and measuring using protractors.
Do you know your acute, obtuse, reflex?
 
How many bananas can you get?

 

How can you remember them?

 obtuse, reflex, acute?
 
ESTIMATE FIRST
 
Remember to measure from zero
 
Assess your learning

We spoke about oil, coal and the ozone, we talked about conservation and

REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE

Take a peek at this

http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-21806193

Nilson Tuwe Huni Kui lives a long way from New York City. In fact, the 29-year-old lives a long way from anywhere.

His village in the Amazon rainforest has a population of only 600 people and it takes five days of travelling by boat to reach the nearest town.

Yet the son of the traditional chief of the Huni Kiu Kaxinawa tribes in Brazil has swapped the rainforest for the concrete jungle, and now calls the Big Apple home.

"My father is what Obama is for you," he explains.

As a youth leader, Tuwe carries the responsibility of making his people's culture and problems known to the world.

After being sent to a summit in Rio de Janeiro last summer he was given an opportunity to study in New York thanks to Tribal Link's Indigenous Fellowship Program and the Nataasha van Kampen Foundation. The Post Factory in Manhattan has been helping him learn to edit so he can pursue his dream of becoming a documentary film-maker.

The BBC spoke to Tuwe about getting used to the city's subway and fast food as well as the challenges indigenous communities face from loggers and oil prospectors.

 

Gosh, work out that angle!

We will publish our LOST books for Year 3.

We will plan next week

I know they will be rich in description and bursting with suspense

Love it!

WOWSERS!!! 5K Skype an author.

WHat would you ask Micheal Morpurgo?
