~The person who invented dynamite~
Alfred Bernhard Nobel was born October 21, 1833 in Stockholm Sweden. Nobel, who invented dynamite, endowed a $9 million fund in his will. The interest on this endowment was to be used as awards for people whose work most benefited humanity. He wanted the profit from his invention to be used to reward human ingenuity. First awarded in 1901, the Nobel Prize is still the most honored in the world.In 1842 Nobel's family moved to St. Petersburg, Russia where he obtained his education. He traveled widely as a young man, becoming fluent in five languages. Nobel was interested in literature and wrote novels, poetry and plays in his spare time. In the 1860s he began experiments with nitroglycerin in his father's factory. He tried many ways to stabilize this highly volatile material. Nobel discovered that a mix of nitroglycerin and a fine porous powder called kieselguhr was most effective. He named this mixture dynamite, and received a patent in 1867.He set up factories around the world to manufacture dynamite and other explosives. Construction and mining companies, and the military ordered large quantities of this relatively safe explosive. Sales of dynamite brought Nobel great wealth. His other chemical research provided valuable information on the development of artificial rubber, leather, silk and precious stones.

T1 W8 Journal Writing: Reading

~T1 W8 Journal Writing: Reading~
Reading helps us to improve our English and to keep us busy during the mornings before the flag raising ceremony. Of course. I have a wide variety of books at home adventures, encyclopedia, comics and books that help me improve my English. Of course I love reading. It keeps me occupied, it could improve my English and I can learn more facts than in school. Like I said I read adventures, facts, comics and books that help me improve my English. Publish comic books with intresting facts so that pupils can learn more facts and have fun reading the fun. I love to read many story books. Hmm.... which book should I list down... I got a book which I have read millions of times. It is 'Striving for Excellence.' It has most of the famous people how they suceed. Take Albert Einsten for example he was thought to dim-witted child. But in the end, he had made a fomula E=mc2. Wilhelm Conrad Rontgent who was once kicked out of school but he was the one who discovered something that is very useful in hospitals that is x-ray. Ivan Petrovich Pavlov would go hungry for his dogs needed for his experiment. That is a proud thing to say. Opps.... I forgot about the author. The author of this book is Huang Qingrong. Thins book can be found in the library.....

~Activities Outside School~
I am involved in tuition and swimming outside school. I spent two days for tuition and a day for swimming. Usually one to one and a half hours. The longest maybe two hours. To improve in my studies and keep me fit. Yes, 1. It can help me imrove, 2. To keep me fit and healthy. I don't think so. These activities either help me improve or just relax after stress from doing my homework. No. I am only stress in my school work because this is the last and most important year for the primary 6. Yes of course they should. So that we would be able to release srtress so we can relax and do some more homework/assesments books after these excersise.

The place I wish to go

~The place i wish to go~
The place I want to go is China, Beijing. I heard from my father that in Beijing, we would be able to see snow. The last time I went to China, Nanjing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Wuxi. I spent my days there quite fun. It is a tour of eight days I spent Nanjing and Shanghai there most. Shanghai we have free and easy. I sat a boat to see the pearl tower. It was very baeutiful. We took our tour pictures there. The reason why I want to go Beijing is because of the snow, I never go there before and lastly, I want to see the 'bird nest' stadium where the Beijing Olympics were.

T1W6 : Journal Writing Passion for Learning

~Passion for Learning~
I understand the meaning by it is to find out more about the subject/topic that I am intrested in. Yes, I think so because if those famous people like Helen Keller, Marie Curie and Albert Einstien do not have the passion for learning, Helen Keller won't be able to speak in her lifetime.... If Marie Curie did not have the passion for learning, she would not have worked so hard to save money to get into one of the universities in Paris and found her husband, Pierrie Curie. If Albert Einsten does not have the passion for learning, he won't be famous now. Of course I know Albert Einsten. In order for him to continue learning, he used his son's wet diapers and tied it on the celing the pee drips to his head so that he won't fall asleep. When he took his son for a walk, whenever he thought of something, he would stop immediately and jot down the notes. If he had not have the passion for learning, he won't stay in his room for three days to write notes. No, I don't think I have. I did not find more about intresting topics/ subjects. I can make use of technology to find out more about topics/subject.

T1W5 Journal Writing : Target Setting

~Target Setting~

We set targets so that we know where we are aiming to. Yes. I think it is useful because when we do things, we must do with an aim if not we won't be accomplishing anything. I can set by my marks, if I score 60 for a subject, I can aim for a higher score that is achievable such as 65 to 70. I can read more books, do more practices and find out more on the meaning of the words for English and Chinese in a dictionary. If I don't understand a question, I can ask my parents. In this way, my parents can help me. I will try to think of my targets to motivate it. Give us more remedial/sumplementry classes.
