Reflecting on the past 5 weeks, it has been an interesting start to term 4.
In English, we are discussing about speculative fiction. I do like some discussions we have done in English, but I would prefer if we focused on expanding our vocabulary, puncuation, grammar etc. but reflecting on the 50’s has been quite interesting, however this is not the most enjoyable outcome for me.
Maths – just learning some more advanced trigonometry and soon moving on to probabilty.
Geography – possible settlement locations was boring but I guess the recommendation will be useful for senior years. We are now moving on to different Political Systems, a topic I enjoy a lot, hopefully we can have some discussions about, especially about actual governments rather than just the basis of what a government should be.
Religion – talking about Personal Moral Responsibility, more interesting than other topics in this year, but I would like to move on to learning about other cultures, beliefs, practices etc. which interst me more.
History – finally doing something relevant that I find extremely interesting. We are learning about revolutions, not just Australian History. I find this knowledge very useful even with the first couple of lessons learning about it.
Science – our project is interesting but im not sure if it’s relevant. We are making a Sewerage System Model of how to goes out to the sea.
PDHPE – the most pointless thing we are doing is learning another skill. I am doing juggling but I dont see the value in it.
Commerce & PASS – we are just doing our modules, i.e. in commerce – Market Day, my favourite subject this term, and PASS – we are learning about the Olympics and continuing previous work.
My direction in the next couple of final weeks:
I would really like to see myself reading more and more every night. Learning about more knowledge about the world, and really just preparing myself for future years and future studies. Another goal I wish to set myself is to aim to be more involved in class lessons, i.e. listening more intentively and also completing all the work to the best of my ability, which I can be quite lazy at times for. I also wish to make these achievements by the deadlines, and hopefully at the end of the term I can evaluate if the whole term has been worthwhile. At the moment, some subjects are more over the other, but in a whole, this term has been much more interesting.
