Abandon Ship

Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel … Book is Abandon Ship  The Writer is Debbie Atherton

I found this novel (interesting, ok etc)  because…I like this book because the way how there were so many disasters and how it was so interesting .

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.

Leadership Article

In writing I have been learning to use basic punctuation that is mostly correct;
- use capital letters, full stops and commas,
- use question marks and exclamation marks,
- use apostrophes,
- use speech marks

I have been especially focussing on using exclamation marks 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.

Cycle Safety

I have just completed Cycle safety course for 2016.

So What

Five top tips I learnt are:

At a stop sine you must stop because there might be a car coming fast and not looking.

When you go to turn you have to do the signals just incase the car does not know your turning.

You always need to do the 4 point safety check because something might happened with your bike.

At a rounder bout you always give way to your right so you don't crash.

Always signal when your going to stop.
