#1 Key Leadership Role - Distinction

This week in the library me and my partner Charlotte, that I share the duty day with, got to the library and could see that Mrs Ward was not yet there and everyone was it the library cloak bay, so Charlotte and I politely asked them to wait outside because Mrs Ward doesn't like people in there when shes not, once Mrs Ward got there everyone sprinted to the computers, once Charlotte and I got into the library there were so many books to put away that once we had finally finished there was only around ten minutes till the library was going to close, I have shown the CARE values Excellence and Active Thinking, the leadership trait that I have used is Active thinking because we had to put all those books away in specific spots.

Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Run

I found this novel ok because it isn't the best book I have ever read, and also it wasn't my type of book.

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 7/8  Standard
    • I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose.
    • I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.

  • Overall I would give this novel a rating of 6/10 and I would / would recommend it to others to read if I was something they would be likely to read because If they probably wouldn't read it they probably wouldn't like it.

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 7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.

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.
(link your TWO BEST describe maps from your current events learning this term)

My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.
