Sam's fat four-eyed and useless

This term I have been reading and studying the novel …fat four-eyed and useless


I found this novel very interesting because you never really knew what was going to happen next.


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
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.

Games with minimal or no equipment.

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.

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?
octopus
hide and seek
tag
chain tag
cones
bibs
so we know what to do if all the sports gear was taken
and so we can play at home with no equipment


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are is being a pals and trying touse no equipment or minimal
because ilike sport games such as rugby


My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are asking the kids what they want to play

Because the kids don't always wont to play

writing

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


I have been especially focussing 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.28/2/17        


Hi I'm Sam and I am going to make a article for you

Leadership is a skill of being able to motivate people/ teams to work towards a goal. There are 6 traits of an effective leader: Integrity, Trustworthy, Resilient, Goal focused, Active Thinker, Motivational.My key leadership role is pals which is when you make an game for the other kids.My goal is to get 50 or more kids and to show the 6 traits.`

One of the traits are Resilient and that is one of my goals because (jak and Lindsay) do their job,of writing the peoples names on the board each day of the every week.I have got to show resilience when the kids don't like the game that we are playing we have got to change. When you are resilient you have to think of what game to change too if the kids don't like.


My next paragraph is about active thinking. Jak O' shows this value when he’s got too 2 things on he has got to think what one is more important and do that one. When they don't like the game you are playing you have got to have another idea for an game. Being resilient you have got to motivate people to play your game

Motivational is a great trait because you came motivate younger people too get involved. Lindsay has shown it to  motivate the other pals too do their job on the days they are meant to be on. You can make kids want too play your game.


Feedback from Mr Ladbrook
Nice work with the commas and brackets. Your ideas are mostly developed and you have linked some of them. Your next step is to remember that proper nouns need to start with a capital
