This week in integrated learning the year 7-8s are preparing for Wellington(I go next year) by learning about history and important parts of Wellington. The group I am in learned about World Wars and how they affected NZ. The first was Identifying who started WW1 and the timeframe of when major countries got involved. Then we looked at what the start of WW2 had to do with the end of WW1. Afterwards we looked at a short overview of both wars and the death counts. My next session is on the court of law.

The first activity we did was rotational symmetry. This shows I can identify rotational symmetry in regular and irregular polygons. My next step is to identify the rotational symmetry on combinations of polygons.

Making a good choice of people to sit next to which has helped me complete my learning.
Being at the right place at the right time which has given everybody more learning time.
Not distracting others when I finish, this has helped others complete their learning.
This term I think I have could work on
Not laughing on the mat because it distracts myself and others.
By focusing more during positive puberty instead of fiddling with my shoes.
By not talking when transitioning from one place to another.
My next step is to sit beside someone i wont talk to as much because the bus driver had to pull over due to noise.
The next step was to find out and research some certain categories to find out which is better Nike or Adidas? Our next step is to complete the presentation sheet so we know how to present it.
Last week in reading the reading group I was in read two stories called The Bullet and Bok Choy. Afterwards we did an authors purpose sheet on Bok Choy. Shortly after we did the summary sheet, I chose the tic tac toe note taking sheet. Shortly after we went to see Mr. Muller who gave us a compare and contrast sheet to complete on the two stories. Finally we did all the Must Dos (cloze, Reading Comprehension and paragraph comprehension). My next step is to infer more on the inference activity to find out more information.

The past two weeks in maths the group I'm in learned about powers and the easiest way to solve them. The easiest way is to change the equation into expanded form ( 3x3x3x3x3)and multiply it from there. The answer to that problem is 243. We did some questions from NCM L5 B1. This is a book that with all the strategies an equations you can think of. My working out looked like this.
My next step is to speak fluently without my book in front of me.

Recently I have completed my old learning goal on getting promotion up to mobile learner licence so I am going to make a new goal. The new goal I have decided on is to complete every week of SDL. SDL is a weekly plan sheet that we need to complete each week to do discovery. A SDL sheet has about 10 activities that always include blogging, maths, reading writing and other things have something to do with organising the classroom like tidying green boxes and sorting out Google docs folders.

This week in science our class did a fair test on what ombination of sugar dissolves fastest. We first found out that the sugar was soluble then each group got a combination of a way to dissolve the salt to try afterwards we did a variable to the first test e.g. a half full cup of cold water instead of hot water. The times varied at the rate the sugar dissolves so multiple groups did the same variable. That's what we did in science.
In reading this week my group finished the two week rotation on comparing two different stories. The stories we compared were both plays called who's the best and ancient history.

This week in writing we identified two new goals, one to do with punctuation and another goal to do with other areas in writing. My punctuation goal is caps and fullstops because I sometimes forget capital letters on pronouns. My other goal is to keep the same tense throughout the story because it was a gap from a test I recently did.

This week in reading we changed around some of the groups an had new goals. Because of this the reading program for our group has changed slightly because we now read two books over a two week period. This meant that we had no follow up activity but every second week we get one.
This term in writing the year 7 and 8s are creating a speech to share with the class and the top 2 from respective years levels in each class go head to head in a speech contest. This week we had to choose a topic, I chose Manchester City is overated from the line ______ is overated.

Physiotherapy requires NCEA 3 to enter tertiary training. To go up in NCEA levels you need credits, credits can be obtained by completing courses. some of the helpful subjects to complete are English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
There are two ways to qualify to become a Physiotherapist, one is to get a diploma in Physiotherapy and the other is a bachelor in Physiotherapy. A diploma in Physiotherapy can be obtained in Acupuncture, Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy or Sports Physiotherapy. A bachelor of Physiotherapy can be obtained by completing a four year degree by first completing a health science course for one year then in years 2-4 are taken at the school of Physiotherapy.
Volunteer work is a crucial part of becoming a physio.Volunteer work is what gets you info to put on your C.V. when applying for a job. Some volunteer work opportunities are Vet, Community Service and sports team. Sports team would be the best because it will be good experience.
New Zealand Physiotherapists don’t earn a lot of money. A New Zealand Physiotherapist in their first 6 years earn between $46,000 and $69,000 a year, but, if you have been a physio for over 6 years you can earn up to $95,000.
There are three types of Physiotherapists opportunities, a self-owned business, work for someone else, or work for a sports team, all three of them have their own benefits. Self-owned businesses earn more money. Working for someone else means you don’t need to worry about paying government taxes. And a sports team means you get to travel!
Physiotherapy is a cool job because no matter where you are all bodies work the same meaning traveling does not affect your work.
