Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel See you Simon by David hill

I found this novel OK because it is very boring in some parts and really interesting in other parts, if someone asked me for a book recommendation I would not recommend See You Simon.

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 I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers

Year 9/10 Standard
I can monitor my understanding as it develops during my reading, and adjust my strategies to address any comprehension problems Eg: If I don’t understand a passage I have read I can re-read it, read-on, use pictures or diagrams, or explore the meaning of some of the vocabulary.
I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

My favorite book - term 1

this story is about a girl called Cat with a little sister named Maya that has a breathing disorder and so they needed to move from a big polluted city to a small clean town. Cat hated moving away from all her friends and never liked the sound of Bahia de la luna until she meet a boy and that's when everything changed.

You will have to read the story to find out more about this great book.

This book is a great read for car trips or people that like graphic novels

Probability Learning

In Maths we have been learning to:

Compare and describe the variation between theoretical and experimental distributions in situations that involve elements of chance.

Calculate probabilities, using fractions, percentages, and ratios.

Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.

Here is some evidence of my learning.

My next step is to continue to apply my knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.

Techonolgy blog post #5

At technology Dabok and I moved to our new class, foods, we cooked hot dog traps and did lots of writing in our books. I learnt lots of cool things about safety and hygiene and the teacher told a lot of story's about cooking problems that she has experience she also told us a lot about what we are making this term which include cookies and cupcakes.

The Care value I showed was respect because I listened respectfully to all the story's and information that she had talked about.

Key leadership role #5

In my leadership role this week Leeana and I get to buy lots of sport gear but before that happens we have to go around the hubs and find out what kind of sports gear people want to play with at morning tea and lunch time. The student leaders as a group has not had many meetings as Mr Ladbrook was at the year 7 camp.

The Care value I showed was Community because I am not only going to ask the year 7/8's but I am going to ask most of the school Community.
