Current Events Term 2, 2017


  • Year7/8: 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.

Here is some evidence of my learning.



My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.

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
