Cindy has improved in the areas of: a) spelling, b) new vocabulary c) creative writing skills d) structure of paragraphs
For the last 6 weeks we have covered in class Topic 6 – Substances when we learned about the structure of an atom, the Periodic table of elements, The Chemical symbols of the first 20 elements and Compound and mixtures. The next topic that we started was Chapter 2 – The Cells. During these lessons Cindy showed a real interest in the topics and constantly asked questions for enhancing her learning. She is to be commended for her attitude in class.
For the last 6 weeks we have covered in class Topic 11-Linear Equations when we learned to identify patterns, backtracking and inverse operations, keeping equations balanced and equations with the unknown on both sides. The next topic that we started was Pythagoras’ theorem. During these lessons Cindy showed a real interest in the topics and worked all the questions from the textbook that has been assigned together with some other questions provided in hardcopies. She is to be commended for her attitude in class.
Learning Intentions · To be able to write a paragraph · To learn and apply new vocabulary · To be able to complete comprehension questions · To understand informative structure and web page design Cindy has worked well in class to achieve the learning intentions.
This term in Science, we have looked at Sound Waves, The Human Ear, Light, The Human Eye, Living Organisms, Classifications, Linnaean Taxonomy, and the Ecosystem. Unfortunately, Cindy has allowed herself to lose focus in Science this term as she has the ability to perform much better. To facilitate such an improvement, Cindy needs to commit herself during class time and put more of an effort in her work ethic and study habits. This includes ensuring she is following along and resist distractions, making sure she keeps up to date with the classwork and homework to prevent falling behind, and ensuring… Read more »
Cindy has done well during Term 4 although I know she can improve much more if she puts more effort into learning in class and at home. Cindy always respects everyone and she is very polite although it would be great if she participated more in each session. In this term we have been able to learn the following: What a news article is Dictations in order to learn new vocabulary and improve our listening skills New vocabulary: bizarre, lawsuit, venomous… Verb tenses: present perfect simple, present perfect continuous… Idioms, nouns, apostrophes… What a brochure is and how to create… Read more »

During the sessions, Cindy can seldom keep the camera on. Cindy is reluctant to communicate and shares ideas with the teacher and peers. Apart from that, Cindy can seldom engage in the sessions. Regarding the homework, Cindy seldom hands in it and it is obvious to tell that Cindy could answer 80% in a correct manner. Cindy has put much effort in learning Maths. In the final exam, Cindy has demonstrated good understanding… Read more »

From week 1 to week 5 Cindy participates in some lessons and she sometimes leaves her camera on (although when it is on I can barely see her). She sometimes interacts with her classmates and her teacher but she loses focus quite easily. Regarding the homework, she sometimes does it and it is obvious to tell that Cindy could answer 60% in a correct manner. She has put a much effort in learning the following: News articles (what they are, features of it…) New vocabulary (shortage, lawsuit, wielding, unfortunate…) Idioms, synonyms, antonyms Verb tenses (present simple, past simple, present continuous,… Read more »
Cindy didn’t do very well in the test. She demonstrated some understanding in limited learning areas, including percentage increase and decrease and discount; however, her test paper showed that she did not understand the content knowledge relating to rates, integrating graphs, word problems relating to money and percentage, and congruent triangles. Cindy rarely answers my questions nor turn on camera or audio in class. She was able to hand in some homework after reminding and completed them with 100% accuracy. This mismatch between her homework and her class behaviour and test result is alarming. One thing Cindy could work on… Read more »
Cindy’s effort in Term 3 was very disappointing. She was often unable to submit homework tasks in a timely manner and would not respond during Zoom lessons. Her Term 3 Science exam was also completely quite poorly as majority of the questions were either unanswered or answered with very little explanation. Cindy needs to improve her work ethic, revise more at home, as well as follow teachers instructions and complete class tasks in a timely manner.
In this term Cindy has been able to learn the following: – How to write a Procedure – Synonyms, antonyms, prefix/suffix, common/proper/abstract nouns – Difference between clause and phrase – Past simple + Past continuous – How to write an Online Article – Prepositions, possessive apostrophes, hyphens and conjunctions – Dictations in order to learn new vocabulary and improve our listening skills Based on Cindy’s test, she did quite well although she can improve. Hopefully, Cindy starts using class time productively in order to improve her listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. She sometimes participates (not very often) although she… Read more »
Cindy is a very able student; however, she has the ability to perform much better. To facilitate such an improvement, Cindy needs to focus more during class time and not disappear during the online lessons. She must also dedicate more time towards homework and revision, as well as forward her homework to the teacher for review.
Cindy was usually very quiet in class and could bey class discipline. She may be a little shy to speak up in class or answer the questions in front of other students. Since she hardly handed in her homework, it is difficult to tell her learning progress. One thing Cindy could improve in the future is to try to be more confident and actively engaged in learning, whether it is participating in class discussions or asking questions when feeling confused. I can see there is potential in you so don’t be afraid to show your strengths. You can do it!… Read more »
Although Cindy did arrive several weeks after Term 3 started she is doing Ok. It would be great that Cindy worked a bit harder at home and in class so everything is much easier for her, especially with grammar and speaking activities. What we have seen in the past few weeks is the following: – Dictations (practice grammar, vocabulary, different nouns, adjectives, etc) – Procedures (what it is, how to write a procedure, etc). During this unit they also learned about prefixes, suffixes, common, proper and abstract nouns. – The use of synonyms, antonyms – Difference between clause and phrase… Read more »
Cindy did a wonderful job through term 2. She is quiet in the classroom and is able to understand the complex mathematical content. However, Cindy needs to positively engage in the classroom rather than waiting for teacher to ask questions. Cindy also needs to pay attention to worded questions to enhance her mathematical achievement.
Cindy did try her best to answer all the questions in the Intermediate English Grammar exam paper. She also put a lot of effort in learning grammar. Here are some aspects expected to be reviewed during the school holiday. 1. Please review non-finite verbs, especially some fixed phrases, such as, have difficulty/trouble doing something, be afraid of doing something, look forward to doing, so on and so forth. It is recommended that you could summarize the errors in your exam paper and try to figure them out by yourself first, and contact Crystal when you need help. 2. verbs about… Read more »
