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:

  1. that you have to get your punctuation, spelling, capital letters and full stops

  1. but respectful thing in your cv to get a good reputation

  1. not to write fake things about you

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae. (Link your C.V. here)\

Term 1 Book Review

fire in the sky 

This story is about… the pink and white terraces that erupted in June 10, 1886, the volcano erupted and they thought it was a earthquake but it was going to long. So they didint know what it was so they run outside up the hill and saw the fire in the sky. Mud from the volcano it was up to there knees they had to get away from it. my opinion on this book is all right it takes awhile to get to the good parts. If you like long stories i would recommend it to you

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 The design of the Halswell Skate Park and I made a submission to the council. ...because… i like looking at designs and getting involved in them and i like skate parks


Here is a link to my learning on the Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan.


The Reading National Standards I have achieved are
  • 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.

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel fire in the sky

I found this novel ok  because… it was not as interesting as i thought


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.
