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.

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.

This week at science we did electricity and we got to use these things called brain boxes. brain boxes are where you can build things and it will make noises or if you make a fan the fan will spin from the electricity. At tech we also do mandarin, at mandarin we learnt how to say i like/dislike a food/drink or ask if someone likes a food/drink their are heaps of foods/drinks you can say in mandarin. here is some down below.

leadership blogpost 4 2017

This week i showed leadership by wearing my hat. Through out the whole week i have warn my hat while being out side. I make sure to wear my hat after learning about melanoma and how if you get sunburn at a young age it can cause melanoma (skin cancer) and u can die. This week i even wore it under the shade umbrellas which i didn't need to but i did. I think it is very good to be sun safe and to ware your sun hat even if it is not sunny. I think the care value I showed was active thinking because I wore my hat all the time.
