Pals (Excellence week 1, blog post 3)

Today Maddy L and I had PALs. This week it has been really wet so we did Jump Jam in the hall, Maddy and I stood up the front and did the actions. I showed Comminuty by using my lunch time to do PALs. I showed the leadership trait of Emphasis because a little girl fell over and hurt he knee so I put myself in her shoes and thought about how it would feel if it happened to me and so I helped her up and took her to a teacher.

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.
