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

home learning challenge #2 2017 exellence

For this home learning challenge I went to three high school open nights I went to riccarton,  hillmorton and lincoln. they were all options at the start but when I went to them I didn't think lincoln suited me so I won't be going there but I don't know what to do with riccarton and hillmorton I really like them both so if I don't get into riccarton it will make my decision way easier because then I wont have to decide the hillmorton one was at the night time the lincoln one was before the riccarton one in the afternoon and the riccarton one was at night time but for the riccarton one we had to book in to get a tou where as the others you didn't have to.
I showed leadership by knowing what my future will be.
I showed respect by not saying that lincoln high wasn't as good as the hillmorton to everyone else there its a good school but just doesn't suit me.

home learning challenge #1 2017 excellence

For this home learning challenge I did the 40 hour famine for this I did no internet it was quite hard because I am usually on my devise for the past time and to keep me  from being bored. I also use it for my blog posts and to catch up on any work I am running late on. I raised 20 dollars and I got that from my mum, dad and my brother.
I showed leadership by role modeling to others to help people in need.
I showed respect by respecting the people that don't have what we have and that are not very lucky.

key leadership role excellence #1 2017

Today the leaders had a meeting in our classroom through morning tea, we usually have meetings just through our eating time (we eat in the meeting still). We mainly talked about the trip we are going on to the city council in a couple weeks and I am very excited about going on the trip because only the leaders are going and it sounds like it will be really fun we are going to go on a public bus to get there! I showed respect by listening to some suggestions of what we are going to eat and outting in my own. I showed leadership by respecting everyones opinion

kapa haka excellence #1 2017

On Friday we had kapa Haka and we meet as a group every Friday in the hall to practice our performances and songs and actions. We started of by taking off our shoes and putting them in the hall and then going and sitting down in our performance lines in the hall quietly but some of the younger kids were quite loud. after that we  started singing our main song which is called Ka Waiata and that sounded really great! Next we practiced new  actions to a new song and focused on learning the actions and doing them without Matuas help it was quite hard as I keep getting muddled up but I persevered. I showed  respect by persevering and trying to do the actions . I showed leadership by being quiet and role modeling it to others.

excellence key leadership role #3 2017

Today all the leaders had a meeting with Mr Ladbrook because some of the leaders (me and some others)  still haven't got our merit badges and Mr ladbrook was just reminding us what we needed to do for our blog posts and home learning challenges and stuff like that. We also talked about how the house captains are sometimes forgetting to put out the flags and then bring them back inside after school and also forgetting to but out the bins out in the morning and bringing them back in, so we made a solution some of the house captain said that we weren't doing enough so  I said tat I would try to be more. I showed excellence by agreeing to do more and trying to be fair and I showed leadership by turning up to the meeting and trying my best to be a good leader for the whole school.

Yr 9/10 evaluate writers’ purposes

Assessment: I can evaluate writer's’ purposes and consider how they have used structure and language to suit these purposes. (Eg: I can make decisions about why the writer has written a piece of writing and how they have used particular structures and words to meet the purpose.) Name:sophie      Choose 3 out of the following texts:   World’s Largest Artificial Sun The World will end, said the cat Mossie Laundry Folding Robot Fallen Leaves Can giant pumps help refreeze the Artic
L5 Author’s Purpose follow up I can describe the author's purpose in relation to structure and language choices in a text and give relevant evidence (eg vocabulary used) I can compare and contrast differences in the author's purpose in relation to structure and language choices between different texts.

key leadership role blog post #2 excellence 2017

On Monday the 29 of May all of the student leaders went to the city centre. We went by bus and we left school at 8:30 to get to the city council building about 9:00. Then we got there and met a city council tour guide that told us about what they do, they organise events, fix roads, look after any playgrounds and make decisions about where any buildings go or overall decisions. After that we were talking about how many many people there are in the city council and the different groups in the council, there are seven different groups. After that we got in to groups of three and met with someone that works there and they told us about their job/career. I met with a worker her name was Deb and she is a roading designer she can figure out where to dig in a road and she can design signs to put on the road and on her computer she can click a button and that shows her where all the water supply and wires things like that are under the ground.  After that we went for lunch to huchi huchi I ha…

reason with liner proportions maths group

National Standard 1: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit of 10 like 3 yellow with 7 blue, 5 yellow with 5 blue, 4 yellow with 6 blue. Say what the fraction and percentage of each stack is for yellow and blue.
2.National Standard 2: - Combine proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up of using non-multiple of 10 like 8 yellow:5 blue:4 white with 11 yellow:11 blue:11 white (19:16:15 and 38%:32%:30%)
3. National Standard 3: - Order fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator
My evidence:  The assessment task 
My next step is: know how to work out the maths quicker and remember how to do it.

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel see,ya simon

I found this novel interesting and sad because you were on the edge of your seat but then the end becomes sad.

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. Link to Explain Map Link to Inference Map

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 read…
