Year end reflection

I really liked reading and doing the novel study. I also enjoyed the book talks and learnt how to properly write an essay. My fondest memory of English 9 was recording the voices for the lego stop motion. Note to self Don’t leave work till the last minute and start when you get assigned the project.

Mutation Story

How does cancer start well humans bodies are made up of 100 million million cells. It starts when just one of all those cells begins to grow and multiply too much. they multiply so much that the Bodie cannot control the growth. this growth is called a tumour and can be very dangerous. de pending on the type of cancer you have it can travel through the blood stream. If too much pressure is put on the tumour and it is close to a muscle such as the brain. Cancer is primarily evident in older people but it is somewhat random kids get cancer all the time. For example “In the UK in 2012-2014, on average each year half (50%) of cases were diagnosed in people aged 70 and over”

what are some symptoms of cancer?

  • Bowel changes. Bowel changes.
  • Rectal bleeding. Rectal bleeding.
  • Urinary changes. Urinary changes.
  • Blood in your urine. Blood in your urine.
  • Persistent back pain. Persistent back pain.
  • Unusual coughing. Unusual coughing.
  • Testicular lumps. Testicular lumps.


Hello I an cancer I am terrible, sure I just one cell but I multiply fast and guess what I WONT DIE. well Sure you can try but it won’t be easy your feel terrible and sick, you will lose all of your hair and be weak. I am the worst thin to happen to Henry oh ya I am starting to grow in Henrys leg. Henry doesn’t no it yet and his mom says its ‘growing pains’ but no its something much worse… me. a while later henrys mom takes him to the hospital and the doctors give henrys parents the bad news, I’m in town. So hey decides to get chemo and fight me well that kill some of me but ass soon as I get big enough I choose where to go. the radiation has shrunk me and now they will try to give Henry surgery and remove me well they took some but not all. a mont goes by and I’m back they repeat the radiation and sth surgery and then I am finally gone. but you better hope I don’t come back and or set up home In side of a fried or family member because I touch everyone.


The reason I chose Cancer as my mutation to do a project on is because I have bee personal touched my cancer multiple times. and wether we like it or not it will eventually effect our lives. Cancer is so common and so quick to ruin lives for that reason cancer is one of the worst mutations.


Principles Of Learning

I think the principals of learning effect us every day and especially in some of our science projects, like the SSEP project where we made experiments that had a chance at going into space. They were also important in out engineering brightest project where we made lights and talked to people in the Dominican Republic over Skype. These are the principals of learning.


Recognizing the consequences of one’s actions : This was very important because for good or bad there is consequences to all of our actions. like in the SSEP project we had the chance to send something out side of out atmosphere and maybe help someone with the results we got.


Connectedness : Connectedness was extremely I’m portent in our Engineering Brightness project. We had to skip chat with the Dominican Republic and another grade 11 class that had worked on this project before use and they gave us good suggestions. they suggested that we not try the hand crank but to stick with what we know solar energy.


Patience and time : we had to use patients and time when we were printing our light it took 5 hours each time. the firs time w printed it id was too small so it was a wist of plastic and time but fail often succeed faster. that is a saying that a very smart person told me.


The well-being of the self, the family, the community, the land, the spirits, and the ancestors: we might not have benefited off of our land or family but we may have helped other families in the Dominican Republic with our light designs and fund raising.

In condition the first peoples principals are very useful and apply to almost everything. day to day I don’t really notice these things but now that I have sat down and wrote this post I fell like I need to thank the first peoples principals for every thing that it has done.
