                                                            Date: 17/5/17
Today at lunch one of the peer mediators came up to me and asked me to do a duty with her I said yes because I had nothing else to do we walked around for a bit then someone came up to us and asked if we could help him find someone to play with we said yes and we asked some near by people if he could join in jump rope with them

Throughout this week we have been doing a dance program this program is super fun and we have a great teacher called Dean we are learning Hip Hop and Jive and I have been trying my hardest.

Overall I think I have shown the care value community by contributing to the community of Oaklands school.

key leadership- counting pozis-excellence post #4

                                                                Date: 17/5/17
On Friday me and Savannah went around to count pozis we normally do it on a Thursday but we did it on a Friday because we had something to do on Thursday. Me and Savannah now have a plan of with class rooms we go to first so on so that we don't interrupt much learning first we go to the year 6 hub then year 5 hub so on right to the new entrance hub.

Me and Savannah showed active thinking  by figuring a way to go around the classroom without disrupting learning.

On Monday the senior choir had a performance in front of the school at an assembly we sang How far i'll go and africa this was fun because we had practised heaps for this.

I showed active thinking by actively thinking my way out of a problem at foodtec because we god given the wrong size measuring cup so i nicely asked the teach for the right one.

Key leadership-Pozis at cross country-Excellence blog post #3

On Monday we went down to cross country at Westlake Park. Me and Savannah decided we would take down 4 different coloured buckets to represent each of the houses because all of the people showing great effort would get a pozi and put it in there house colour bucket.

When we got down there I handed out handfuls of pozis to all the teachers. Me and Savannah had to keep an eye on the bucketts and every now and then when Savannah was watching the buckets I went to cheer on some of the other people in the races.

I think I showed community by helping out at Westlake Park which is part of our community.

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel See Ya Simon by David Hill

I found this novel interesting because you follow siamons last moments in life and along the way you learn about the disease siamon had which is Muscular Dystrophy.

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.
