Novel Study Term 1

Term 1 Novel Study

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

I found this novel ok because I only really got attached to the characters near the end of the book but the author did a good job concluding the novel, the novel only got interesting halfway through.

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 9/10 Standard
I can monitor my understanding as it develops during my reading, and adjust my strategies to address any comprehension problems Eg: If I don’t understand a passage I have read I can re-read it, read-on, use pictures or diagrams, or explore the meaning of some of the vocabulary.
I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

Alternative NZ Flags

I think that the flag should stay the same as we have now. There is no point in spending millions of money just to change the flag. So what if our flag kinda looks like the Australian flag. Soon our notes will end up looking like Australian notes. But if we would be changing flags my favourite one would be the second one.


Probability Reflective Blogpost

In Maths we have been learning to:

compare and describe the variation between theoretical and experimental distributions in situations that involve elements of chance.

calculate probabilities, using fractions, percentages, and ratios.

Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.

Here is some evidence of my learning. Include screenshots for all 4 of the IXL activities. Link to extended abstract text book activity ( make this link live with your learning) or include some images if you did this work in your Maths book.

My next step is to continue to apply my knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.

Current Events Term 1

Current Events Term 1
In Current Events I covered these topics: The design of the Halswell Skate Park and I made a submission to the council. Donald Trump’s Refugee Plan Christchurch Earth Memorial The new Ngā Puna Wai Sports Facility The Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan with a submission to the council.
My favourite topic was Donald Trump's Refugee Ban because it was very interesting to me because of the recent political issues about Donald Trump recently.
Hereis a link to my learning on the Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan.
The Reading National Standards I have achieved are (delete the ones that are not relevant) Year 9/10 As I read I can make decisions about the usefulness of the text for the purpose - Eg: by using a variety of criteria to evaluate
