Current Events Term 1



Blog Post Title: Current Events Term 1


Current Events Term 1


In Current Events I covered these topics:
  • The design of the Halswell Skate Park and I made a submission to the council.
  • Donald Trump’s Refugee Plan
  • Christchurch Earth Memorial
  • The new Ngā Puna Wai Sports Facility
  • The Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan with a submission to the council.


My favourite topic was Donald Trump’s Refugee Plan because I learnt a lot about the refugees.


Here is my task

Red zone planning takes step forward Describe++ Map - Jade TONKIN



The Reading National Standards I have achieved are (delete the ones that are not relevant)
  • Year 7 and 8
    • Identifying and resolving issues that come from competing information in texts
      gathering, evaluating, and synthesising information across a small range of texts
    • I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.

Abandon Ship

Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study


Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel Abandon Ship


I found this novel interesting because I really enjoyed the past of the story and the characters, I also really enjoyed reading along with debbie about her grandfather's diary.


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.

Algebra - Graphs, tables and rules.

Blog post title: Algebra - Graphs, tables and rules.

In Maths we have been using to: use graphs, tables and rules to describe linear relationships found in number and spatial patterns.


Here is a link to our online modelling book. This shows all of the learning we have been doing.



Here are some photos of my Extended abstract problem solving task.

My next step is to continue to apply what I have learned in a range of problem solving activities.

Leadership article blog post

Leadership article blog post

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. Leadership Article

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.

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?
Any Tag Games E.g Octopus, tag, tricky tag.

BasketBall, Netball
Balls.Cones.Because they are easy to set up or display, also they are easy to explain. 

My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are teaching and learning the games fast because they are easy to learn.My Next Steps are to listen to the rules correctly
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are focusing on the speaker  Because i get distracted of the things around me.
