Pals (merit week 5, blog post 14)

Today Maddy L and I had PALs, we did stilts and shooting hoops with the little kids. We had over 30+ people come to out activity which is great. The little kids looked like they were having a lot of fun. I showed community by giving up my lunch time to run an activity for the little kids.

Technology (merit week 5, blog post 13)

Today the year 7/8s went to Tech at Lincoln. I'm in design, today I put my name on the list to get my 3D design printed. I also cut out the shape for my pillow and made a little pillow. While I was at Tech I showed community because I was tidying up at the end really well and got chosen to get a lolly.

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.



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

Pals (merit week 4, blog post 11)

Today I was on PALs with Maddy L, we ran stilts. We had over 20 kids come to are activity, thats good but usually we get 30+ but since Jump Jam was on most of the juniors went to that. I helped out a little girl that fell over and I took her to Mrs Harris to get a ice pack. While I was there I showed the learner qualities of resilience when not many people were at our activity I didn't give up and leave.

Technology (merit week 4, blog post 10)

Today the year 7/8's went to technology at Lincoln, on the bus I was respecting it by not picking on the seats even though there were lots of holes.At technology I'm in design and today we watched a video about phones and what the were like in the 1980s. Then we filled in sheet a and b and started making our prototypes. I finished my prototype and it looked good. I'm making a pillow with "Ohio" on one side and "OFC" on the other side, I'm doing this project with Anneke. We hot glued on the writing for our prototype because there wasn't anything else to do it with. I showed respect by not talking while the teacher was talking and on the bus by not shouting across it.
