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.

My writing

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)

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.


Leadership is a skill of being able to motivate people/teams to work towards a goal. There are 6 traits of being an effective leader, they are,Trustworthy,Integrity,Resilient,Goal focused,Active thinker,Motivational. My key leadership role for 2017 is a peer mediator, this means that each week i walk around the school and help with peoples problems, but not physical violence.

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.

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?
tag
octopus
invisible tag
tricky tag
cones,bibs,flagsso if we just thought about it like 10 mins ago or something we don't have to go through all the hassle of trying to get equipment and booking to use equipment and trying to find equipment that we need


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are i have been resilient because when there was a game i didn't want to play i didn't give up and not played the game i played the game and did my best to follow the rules
My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are being more enthusiastic when playing the game and trying to enjoy it  Because if the game isn't a game that i like i need to be more enthusiastic about playing the game and not judging the name and try the game out
