Reading




Blog Title: Term 2 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fat Four Eyed and Useless

I found this novel ok because there was cool events in the book and the reading out there writing in assmebly was a big event

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.
  •  Year 7/8  Standard
    • I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose and 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  4/10 ) and I would  recommend it to others to read because it was a good book but personaly I didn't like the setting of the book because if you like books with cool events init it's the book for you.

Current Events Term 2, 2017



   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:


  • Year7/8: 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.





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

drama



In ARTS this term we have been learning to:
Select and use techniques and relevant technologies to develop drama practice.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.

  • During this unit of learning we:
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances.
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.

The most challenging part of this unit of learning was been silent because if somthing went wrong you can't tell them to do that scene
The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
  1. doing this with my firends and having a good laugh 
  2. we all had the same idea 
The story that my group told silently was that I stole the fidget spinner and then I ran into the stage and threw the fidget spinner case away and then I ran off ...........

Overall I think my group worked really well because we all had the same idea so we just clicked and it was so easy to do the process and film the act.

student led conference

here is my student conference

Jak o'connell cv


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. I have very good computer skills
 2.  I am very good at teamwork and stuff like that 
 3.  I am very good at resilience
