For reading over the past five weeks I have been focussing on:

I can monitor my reading for accuracy and sense, demonstrating that I have the confidence to adjust my reading (e.g., by varying the speed of reading, by rereading, and by attending to the most important information) when I encounter difficulties.

And

I can make connections between my prior knowledge and the concrete examples in a text in order to understand abstract ideas in the text.

During this time, I have been reading with the teacher and also using an online tool called Read Theory to help practise these skills.

My two favourite texts I read were:
  1. Books vs. Movies
  2. Making Your Own Pretzels


Here is a screenshot of my Read Theory results

In ARTS this term we have been learning to:
Select and use techniques and relevant technologies to develop drama practice.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.

  • During this unit of learning we: have produced a silent movie called the chase.
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances the things we have to add in is a kick a slap and a waving finger
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances difrrent things we did was near the end the bully beacomes freinds with the victm.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations oi give meh that back! *kicks and slaps and waves finger*
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance our proformunce turned out great

The most challenging part of this unit of learning was beenig silent and not luaging because it was really fun

The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
  1. practising a chaseing each other
  2. the hole thing

The story that my group told silently was a person stoll something of ov us

Overall I think my group worked out really good.


Blog post title: Classify plane shapes and prisms by their spatial features

In Maths we have been using to:  Classify plane shapes and prisms by their spatial features

Here is a link to our online modelling book. This shows all of the learning we have been doing.

EVIDENCE of my learning.

Here are some screenshots to show the IXL activities I have completed.

My next step is to continue to apply what I have learned in a range of problem solving activities.

leader ship blog-buddy programm

in buddy program the year 7/8 take the little kids out to play and do fun games my first team was solani and crystal and we did hosplatle tag so pretty much hosplatle tag is a game wrere if you get taged once that means in the game you lose a life and you have four lifes if you run out 3 or more people have to pick you up and carry you to the person in the middle and once your there the person getting carried will be free and able to run away it ends when theres only 2 people because only 3 or more people can lift up a person.My second group was josh and jak we played ouctops with the little and if you don't know ocutops then ill tell you. So pretty much theres two tagers or three and everyone else is on a line and the tager shouts out OUCTOPUS and all the runners run to the opiste end wrere your safe if you get taged you are sea weed and you can't move you can only reach out to tag others and thats my blog post.

current events

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.

The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is: 7/8



  • Year7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.


Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read.  After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.

Here is some evidence of my learning.




My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.

c.v blog post

In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

  1. how to apply for a job

  1. what you have to do to get a job with a c.v

  1. what traits you need to be at to have a certain job
Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae. my c.v

In Maths we have been using to: Use a coordinate system or the language of distance and direction to specify locations and describe paths.


Here is a link to our online modelling book. This shows all of the learning we have been doing.


EVIDENCE of my learning.

Here are some screenshots to show the IXL activities I have completed.



















































You can find evidence of my extended abstract problem solving tasks in my Maths Book.
The Figure it out activities that I completed were  called:

  • Going the distance
  • Clara’s Cowpats



My next step is to continue to apply what I have learned in a range of problem solving activities.

my reading asment

Assessment task: I can recognise the features and purposes of familiar text types and use my knowledge to find my way around and understand texts

1.
Text feature:
Why this text feature is important?
  • Title
Tells the reader what they're reading about.
  • Table of Contents
Shows the page number and where the story is.
  • Photos
Helps the reader get an idea.
  • Headings
Helps the reader a bit more when they're reading something.
  • Sub Headings
Also helps the reader identify the purpose.
  • Blurb
Tells the reader about what the text is about.
  • Maps
Help the reader in a maps book to see we’re the books talking about.
  • Illustrations
Shows an important object.
  • Diagrams
Allows the reader to more detail about it.
  • Glossary
it puts out vocabulary words.
  • Captions
Show an important idea.

2. PIE - There are 3 purposes to texts - Persuade, Inform, and Entertain.

In each of the 3 small texts below state whether the text is Persuasive, informative or entertaining and say why you think that.

Text
Persuasive, informative or entertaining?
```Why do you think this?
Dracula
I think my dad is Dracula.
I know that sounds insane,
but listen for a moment and
allow me to explain.
We don’t live in a castle,
and we never sleep in caves.
But, still, there’s something weird
about the way my dad behaves.
I never see him go out
in the daytime when it’s light.
He sleeps all day till evening,
then he leaves the house at night.
persuasive.
Because it tells you that he's affected to sunlight.

Black Sticks beat India to take series

The Black Sticks have beaten India in their latest International 6-2 to completed a clean sweep in their five match series. Striker Olivia Merry scored a double in the first quarter, Pippa Hayward, Natasha FitzSimons, Sam Harrison and Kirsten Pearce all added to card for the Black Sticks. Head coach Sean Dancer said despite the win there are areas the side needs to work on. “There are certainly areas we need to get better at, but I thought the performance today highlighted some positive things we’ve been working on,” he said. “To their credit India were tough, but a couple of our goals scored were scored through strong striker actions and that’s very pleasing.”
Goldilocks - a thief?
We all heard the story when we were little kids about a sweet blond who was hungry, so she got into the home of some bears to eat.
She was a good kid. Right? We all liked her and heard about her again and again.
Now think about it. If you are hungry. Would you get into someone's house?
Not only that she got into their home and ate the bears dinner, but she also BROKE THEIR CHAIRS!
That's already private property violation, theft, and vandalism! Enough to put you behind the bars for some time.
But that's not enough. She also went to sleep in their beds!
So that also adds an illegal house occupation attempt!

I think that it's all a big conspiracy trying to teach the young kids that stealing is fine and recommendable.
So were we fed with tales about a sweet girl, or about a thief and vandal?
Informative































entertaining.







It tells you about the player in this writing































Because it's really funny.

Investigate simple situations that involve elements of chance by comparing experimental results with expectations from models of all the outcomes, acknowledging that samples vary.

Answer:different

Why? I think its a 50 50 chance
