Novel blog post.

Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study


Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fire in the sky.


I found this novel interesting because at the start it was a bit boring about him talking and eating and stuff but but at the middle it was getting interesting because his father went missing and I was dying to want to know what happened next!


During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.


National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

Games with minimal or no equipment.

In PE we have been participating in a variety of games that require little or no equipment.
Below is the Matrix which shows our progression in this unit of learning.


Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 12.32.06 PM.png


The table below shows my understanding of games with minimal or no equipment.
(Fill this table in, in as much detail as possible. )


Examples of Games that need minimal or no equipment.
What equipment would we usually need to play these games.  
Why do we play games with minimal or no equipment?
Toilet tag.
Midnight.
chain tag.
Cones.
Bibs.
tennis balls.
It will save time from getting things.


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are listen to the rules and play the game because i won't disagree to the games and sit out i will just play it even when i don't like it.


My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are listen to the rules and do whats right  Because sometimes i forget the rules and basically break the rules E.G (when we catch the ball we can't run and i didn't hear it so i ran so basically i break the rules)

Writing - Leadership Article

In writing I have been learning use more punctuation and using paragraph consistently

I have been especially focusing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

(E.G Leadership is a skill of being motivate people it means teams to work towards a goal.

There are 6 traits of an effective leader: Integrity ,Trustworthy ,Resilient Goal focused  Active thinker and Motivational. My key leadership role for 2017 is being a peer mediator this means each Monday on  lunch time, I will be wearing a green vest that says peer mediator plus a an ipad and a peer mediator process to guide us through problems, to be a good peer mediator I need to show all the 6 traits.)
