六月将尽，小学返校复课也有一段时日。上周，彩票在线注册网小学部举办了一年一度的数学竞赛：算24点！June is coming to an end, and primary school students have been back in session for a while. Last week, Fuzhou Lakeside International School held its annual primary school math contest: Math 24!
「算24点」采用积分制规则，答对红色题目卡积一分，蓝色两分，黄色三分。前两轮参赛选手四人一组，每轮时长十分钟。第一个拍下卡片的选手获得答题权，三秒内未答出将被警告，选手必须使用加减乘除等数学方式，设法让牌面4个数字算数所得为24。前两轮积分最高的六名同学得以挤身竞争更加激烈的第三轮比赛！此时积分清零，仅余两组选手，每组三人。这一轮积分前三的同学便成为了我们的决赛选手！Math 24 was conducted on a point system: one point for a red question card, two points for blue, and three points for yellow. In the first two rounds, students were divided into groups of four and each round lasted ten minutes. The first player to take the card got the right to answer the question; failure to answer within three seconds would result in a warning. The player was allowed to add, subtract, divide, and multiply four numbers in the card in order to get an answer of 24. The six students with the highest scores from the first two rounds were able to move on to the more competitive third round! In this round, the points were cleared and there were only two groups of players left, three in each group. The top three students in this round became our finalists!
晋级决赛的三位选手均为五年级生，恰好，课外他们都是FLIS足球队成员。昔日队友如今在决赛场上针锋相对，大家时而激动时而放松，精神奕奕地打完了这一轮。最终，Jack同学以卓越表现摘得冠军，第二名为Eric同学，Diego同学位列第三名。恭喜他们！The three players who advanced to the final round were all fifth graders, and it just so happened that they were all members of the FLIS soccer team. The former teammates were now competing against each other in the Math 24 finals, and they all finished the round in great spirits, sometimes excited, sometimes relaxed. In the end, Jack won the championship with his outstanding performance, followed by Eric in second place, and Diego in third place. Congratulations to all of them!
在IPC教学中，五年级的同学近来聚焦历史上的重要发明与发明家。上周，他们学习了沟通的历史。在钢笔、铅笔以及其他交流科技出现之前，人们是如何使用一系列工具与技术传递信息的呢？学生们先在课堂上制作了再生纸，之后，他们用炭笔、粉笔、树枝、树叶、石子、蔬菜，甚至自己的双手，在纸上留下讯息、写写画画。他们还用蓝莓制作了墨水！In IPC, G5 students have been focusing on inventors and inventions throughout history. Last week, they learned about the history of communication and how people used a variety of tools and techniques to send messages before pens, pencils, and other communication technology existed. First, in a previous lesson, students had made their own recycled paper and used charcoal, chalk, sticks, leaves, rocks, vegetables, and even their own hands to write messages and draw pictures. They even made their own ink out of blueberries!
不久后我们将迎来中国传统节日——端午节。在此提前祝愿大家端午安康！记得吃粽子哦:)We will be celebrating the traditional Chinese festival, the Dragon Boat Festival, in a few days. Here's an early wish for good health on the Dragon Boat Festival! Remember to eat Zongzi (traditional foods especially for the Festival which are made of sticky rice mixed with sweet or savory fillings, wrapped with bamboo leaves, and steamed or boiled) :)
