extended abstract task



I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions

Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.


Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed?
60  twice as many means need to divide it into thirds then two third will be cats

Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that Al gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?

¼ bob gets one halve so des is investing a halve of bob so des is investing a quarter

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel dragon keeper by carole wilkinson


I found this novel exiting  because it has lots of betrayal and twists and turns!!!


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.


National Standard this covers (delete the ones that are not appropriate)


  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

can dos

Today we went to technology. At the bus it wasn't too noisy.
 When we got off the bus we all split up to what ever tech we did. I do design textile and soft material . At design we worked on our projects .I finished my project so I worked on something else .I made a pillow that was kinda holographic.Every thing ran smoothly . At Chinese we learned how to ask "what are you eating " and answer "i am eating ..."all sorts of yummy food . 
On the way back to school we luckily arrived on time .  I showed the care value active thinking but using my time carefully. 

peer mediation - merit post 1

peer mediation 1 

today was my peer mediation day there were lots of problems but nobody was listening to what we was saying.
there was a little kid crying cause a big kid stole the ball off him saying that only year four and up students were allowed to play with the balls. the little kid said that it was his classes ball .we couldn't solve this problem cause the little kid was crying and shouting too much so we couldn't understand what the kid was saying . there was another child that accidentally dropped something down a drain and was crying saying it was brand new and special .we couldn't do any thing cause our hands were too big .we apologized to them.

I used the care value active thinking because i thought of the best possible way to figure out he problem

leadership article wirting

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (e.g semicolons, colons, parentheses)


I have been especially focusing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

What makes an awesome peer mediator

Leadership is an act and skill of being able to help people achieve and work towards a goal. The six traits of being a great leader are Integrity,goal focused,trust worthy,active thinker,resilient and motivational. My key leadership role is peer mediator,this means one day a week I go out into the play ground wearing a green vest and lanyard and help people with problems between them and other people.I think its a vital importance to show the leadership traits in my role.



Games with minimal or no equipment.

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.


Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 12.32.06 PM.png


The table below shows my understanding of games with minimal or no equipment.
(Fill this table in, in as much detail as possible. )


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?
  • tag
  • octopus
  • hunger games
  • capture the flag
  • battle ship
  • cones
  • if we have a day where we have no equipment and we are bored we can set a game up
  • its easy to set up


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are listening because i listen carefully to fully understand the game and make it easier for the person who teaches us

My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are participating with and doing my best Because i don't give it my all
