Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Castaway


I found this novel Interesting  because I found out alot
During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.


National Standard this covers (delete the ones that do not apply to you.)
  • Year 9/10 Standard
    • I can locate, evaluate, analyse and summaries information and ideas within texts and across a range of texts.
    • I have a large vocabulary that is connected to my own knowledge about the world and includes: - academic e.g observe vs watch - subject-specific (specific words about a subject (e.g feline) - technical terms (specialised vocabulary of a particular field.)
Overall I would give this novel a rating of  10/10 and I would / would not  recommend it to others to read because It was very interesting and exiting

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:


  • 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.



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:

  1. You need to have referees to prove your skills.

  1. You write about skills.

  1. You do a personal statement and about your hobbies.

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

Reading - Text Composition


In reading we have been learning to….
recognise the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)


My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types.
