In reading we have been learning to apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias with mr brown

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
  • Describing Author's Purpose
  • Criteria to evaluate texts
  • Evaluating a range of texts

My Next Step:is to get better at evaluating texts

current events

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

  • Year7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.

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

Describe map Two describe map

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

In PE we have been participating in a variety of games that require little or no equipment.
Below is the Matrix which shows our progression in this unit of learning.

The table below shows my understanding of games with minimal or no equipment.

Examples of Games that need minimal or no equipment.
What equipment would we usually need to play these games.  
Why do we play games with minimal or no equipment?
invisible tag

to have fun and have something to do

My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are co-operating because i got stuck in when we were playing the games.

My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are to be faster  Because then it will make it harder for the other team to tag me.
