koru games reflection

Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was football

Our team won quite a few games (I can't say exactly how much because I wasn't counting)

I found the experience to be strange because It felt really different with the positions

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is unistructual because it's really hard to do it with different people and I feel more confident with a group of my friends

For Teamwork; my solo level is multistructual because I can work in a small group and respect it

Individuals and groups
I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students
I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  

I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve

I need help to interact with others.

I need help to participate in a team.
I can interact with others one to one.

I can participate in a team.
I can interact with others in a small group.

careers education C.V.

careers education C.V.

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.  It needs info about you
  1. You might need to make a bit of a lie
  1. It's not in sentences and sentences 'cause the manager doesn't have the time to read it all

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae. C.V.

I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clause

I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses

In this unit learnt what an adverbial clause and conjunction are

A connective is when you add an extra word to connect two simple sentences into one

An adverbial clause is when you add a subject and and it is longer than an adverbial phrase

Here is a link to a compare and contrast map of an adverbial clause and a connective

Term 1 novel study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel dragon keeper.

I found this novel (interesting, ok etc)  because it was full of action and adventurous.

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 (delete the ones that are not appropriate)

  • 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
