Term 1 novel study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Abandon Ship

I found this novel (interesting, ok etc)  because when ever I had to tidy away my stuff and I had been reading it always left me on a cliff hanger. It also had me deep into the book and it had me feeling like I was there. Now since I have read the book I know what my grandfather went through on the boat.

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.

merit blog post 5 can do's 2017

At tech it was our first week at design. This week at design we played with a website called Tinkercad. Tinkercad is a website that you can make 3D things then connect it to a 3D printer and print out the things you made. This week we learnt how to make a key chain, mine was a baby blue heart with my name in a light salmon colour. I also went around and helped other people, I enjoyed doing this it was quite fun. I think the care value i showed was community because i helped other people with what they needed to do.

merit leadership blog post 5 2017

This week I have shown leadership by putting up the flag each day when its my turn, and taking it down each day when it is my turn. This week it rained A LOT and i still did my job when needed, I also reminded Hussain to do his bit but he refused and would not do it. That is how I showed leadership this week. i think i showed community for reminding Hussain about doing his job.
