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.


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.
