I can recognise and understand a variety of grammatical constructions and some rhetorical patterns

In this unit I learnt… We learnt about... Nouns, Adverb, Adjective, Pronoun, Preposition, Conjunction, And... Adverbs.


A grammatical construction is to with parts of speech.


In parts of speech, I already knew what… A Noun is, and what a Adverb is and that is about all I knew.

The ones I didn’t know were... Conjunction that well and one of the most ones I did't know that well was Adjective.

I like this book because it was very interesting. I liked it because they made it really interesting and there were lot's of events that happened and there was a painful part that happened in the story. There are two main characters in this story. One of the main characters are at middle school almost at high school.

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 7/8: 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 NZ Tax Money

Describe map Two Microbead Free

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 have to have the right punctuation.

  1. You have to know 2 referees.

  1. Your C.V has to be short and not to long.

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

Reading - Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to….apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias.




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:



My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information
