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 9/10: I can read in different ways to find and/or understand information that that is not immediately easy to access or is not organised in familiar ways.

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.

Describe Map One

Describe map Two

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

Careers Education C.V. Writing

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:
That you don't have to do it about your work experience 
It has to be quite long 
 That you can to add skills that might not have to do with the job
Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae.

kapa haka #2 excellence 2017

Today was kapa Haka. We firstly went and took our shoes off (as normal) and went to sit down on the hall floor ready to listen and learn new actions and songs! we found out that we are going to do a performance for our open afternoon we are going to open it we get to spend 15 mins doing it and we are going to do five songs. We then practiced more new words for a song there is a part that the boys were meant to sing and matua was going though it with them and none of them were singing it so he told us(the girls) to try and we did it really well so then he told them to try it again they sang it but just not as good as us . We then practiced Ka waiata because we all love and all sing in our classes.
I showed respect by trying the actions as best I could.
I showed leadership by showing good banter is good
