Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written Draft letter

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.
One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was to not use text langusage and make sure that the punctuation is right and it sounds formal.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

I can recognise and understand a variety of grammatical constructions and some rhetorical patterns

In this unit I learnt that a Preposition is a word governing a noun or pronoun and expressing a relation to another word or element in the clause, E.g The man on the platform’and ‘She arrived after dinner’,

A grammatical construction is to with parts of speech.

In parts of speech, I already knew what a Noun, Adverb, Adjective, Pronoun and Adjective is.

The ones I didn’t know were Conjunction and Preposition.

Term 2 book review

                                      Anne Frank´s Dairy

                                                      By Anne frank 

This dairy is about this young girl named Anne frank she lived with her parents, Otto Frank and her mother Edith Frank she had a sister Margot Frank.
Her dairy is about her life in the world war ii and how she tried to survive.She and her family went into hiding because her family was a Jew,so that meant she was a Jew.The Nazis where trying to find all the Jews a kill them because apparently in those days everyone thought that the Jews where bad.

As well as the Frank family there are four other Jews in the Secret Annex in the house : Hermann and Auguste van Pels with their son Peter, and Fritz Pfeffer. Four of Otto's employees help them be in the hiding and make sure no one finds out about the annex.
The door to the annex is disguised as a book case.
If you want to find out if they get found and if she and her family survived you are gonna have to read her dairy.
I think this book is very interesting because after reading her dairy you would probably want to find out more about her and her family and who survived and you died.
I think people sould read this book its so interesting and good to read if you are bored.

Identify classes of two- and three-dimensional shapes by their geometric properties Assessment task

Careers Education C.V. Writing

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. That you need to be neat e.g No spelling mistakes,make sure that it has the right punctuation in the right places,it has to have capitals in the right places in names,streets,buildings and cities.

  1. That you have to have referees. 

  1. That you have to have a personal statment and what standard you are at school and what 

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae.

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Trash

I found this novel interesting because it was very mysterious and very sad.

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 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.
