Excellence key leadership role #3

Today we had a meeting with all the student leaders, we talked about our leadership blog posts.
In my leadership role I want to plan 1 event in the year and try and not get fired.
A good thing to remember for me is to do all my blog post and keep up to date.
The care value I showed was community because I showed up to the meeting.
The leadership value I showed was active thinking because I have done all the blog post I need to do.

Home learning challenge #3

C3. Teach a family member how to use an ICT tool that they are unfamiliar with (like the Flip, Google docs or a specific App)

I did this with my mum. The app on her phone I helped her use was Gmail because she needed to file her emails and didn't know how to file stuff on her phone.

T2 art study

Excellence blog post #3

On Wednesday we had a student council and we talked about fundraisers, what we are going to do and who the money will go toward. In term 3 we will be doing a ice cream day, me and the rest of the year 7/8 student council members are going to organise/plan where the ice cream is coming from and how much money it is going to cost.
The care value I showed was active thinking because the year 7/8's lead half of the meeting when Mrs Trotter was not there.
The leadership trait I showed was all of them because we took the lead we they were in need.

I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions involving circles

The 400 metre track.
Take the two semicircles ends and find the radius, that is 36.5 then double that to make 73, then times that by pi which is 229.34 metres then you divide it by 2 which is 114.67 and that's what the ends are. For the sides you minus 400 with 229.34 which equals 170.66, half 170.66 which equals 85.33 that is the lengths of the sides.

  1. 85.33m, 85.33m, 114.67 and 114.67

Current Events Term 2, 2017

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:

  • Year 9/10: I can read in different ways to find and/or understand information that that is not immediately easy to access or is not organised in familiar ways.

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.

Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel abandon ship

I found this novel interesting  because I think true story's made into books is really interesting

During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.

National Standard this covers

  • Year 9/10 Standard
    • I can locate, evaluate, analyse and summarise information and ideas within texts and across a range of texts.
    • I have a large vocabulary that is connected to my own knowledge about the world and includes: - academic e.g observe vs watch - subject-specific (specific words about a subject (e.g feline) - technical terms (specialised vocabulary of a particular field.)

Overall I would give this novel a rating of  8/10 and I would recommend it to others to read because it is New Zealand history that is actually good
