I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses
In this unit I learnt... what adverbial clauses and connectives are
A connective is a word that connects two sentences together for example and is a connective.
An adverbial clause is a part of a sentence that tells the time or place
Here is a link to a compare and contrast map of an adverbial clause and a connective

Term 2 Novel Study
This term I have been reading and studying the novel Abandon ship
I found this novel interesting because the people in the book were trying to survive the sinking of the Wahine.
During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.
National Standard this covers
- Year 7/8 Standard
- I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose and I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.
- Overall I would give this novel a rating of 9/10 and I would recommend it to others to read because It is a interesting book and a lot of action and because it is a good and easy story to understand.
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.
1.Here is some evidence of my learning.
2.here is another one
My Next Step is to continue to apply the reading and research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.

C.V. Blog POst Template
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:
- You have to keep your CV simple and tidy.
- It is hard to apply for a job
- It is not easy to make a CV
