Reading goal- Explore authors purpose

W.A.L.T: To eplore the authors purpose

To find the authors purpose we first need to remember pie

Is the text persuading you to do something or maybe buy something.

Is the text informing you about something.

Is the text entertaining you on a topic.

All three of these help you to find the authors purpose easier

After finding out which one of the three the author is trying to do you then move onto another 
three , they're , agree, disagree and neutral.

The author is trying to persuade you to do something.

The author is trying to persuade you not to do something

The author is just trying to entertain you.

These three will also help you get one step closer to finding the authors purpose.

Now you need to figure out what the intended audience.
It could be
And more

After that you just need to make an overall statement that includes what you found out.

For me I think that I am extended abstract because I can find out the authors purpose for many different stories

Writing evidence-Ideas and Organisation

Goal: Ideas and organisation

My goal is to elaborate on one idea in each paragraph fully , using relevant and factual details and have linked ideas and to be able to role model to others on how to elaborate on their ideas.

Here is a my writing that shows I have elaborated and used relevant and factual details and I have linked my ideas.

My Career Explanation

My career goal is to become a successful Interior Designer. This career will fit in best with my personality because I love to design houses , draw and build 3D model houses and buildings.
Availability for an interior designer job is rated at about average and is not to hard to find a job anywhere in Christchurch or even New Zealand. The pay is $30,000 - $45,000 per year and if you have 2-5 years of experience then you get $40,000 - $65,000  and for senior workers that have about 5-10 years of experience usually earn $55,000 - $80,000.

To get up to 5-10 years experience I need to consider taking  Graphics, Art and Art History , English , Computing and Maths. These are important because it will help me with my career , for example English will help me because I will need to write reports or communicate with different people and maths will be needed for totalling prices and making discounts if needed , also computing would be needed for using computer softwares and apps and art will be needed for sketching.

After studying those subjects I will need to get a university entrance qualification and then from there on I will need to get a degree in interior design; Spatial design or interior architecture degrees are also acceptable because they are both similar careers. As well as a degree you can also do interior design courses which will give you training to help you do better in your

In my job as an interior designer there are some qualities that are needed like: Good Communicator , Knowledge of interior materials such as paint, fabrics and glass , Knowledge of building regulations , The ability to analyse client requirements and fit the design for a client and Design , drawing and presentation skills. These are important because you need to know what kind of materials will match and you need to be able to draw and present designs that will give a good picture in the client's mind.

An Interior Designer's degree is not only used for interior designing but also for the following: Architect , Architectural Technician , Graphic Designer , Painter and Decorator or Industrial Designer.
I can use my interior designer degree for these jobs because they are all related to art and designing.

Overall I think that being an interior designer is best for me because I love designing interiors of houses and drawing. Also after I graduate I can still change my career path and use it for other things other than interior designing eg. Architect.

The green highlighted paragraph is my evidence for my goal , i just added the whole explanation because then it makes sense.

Peer mediation

Monday 25/05/15

Today Hannah , Poppy and I had peer mediation , I remembered to show up and participate in my duty that I had signed up for. Like every Monday lunchtime we had to go to the previous peer mediators to get our bright green vests and lanyards and an iPad because it had a form on it that we had to fill out if we have any problems. Today we had one problem with one boy that got pushed off a bench , we sorted it out and then filled out the form which then got sent to the classroom teacher.
Overall I think today's duty was good and I am glad I remembered to show up because then the boy wouldn't be able to get any help and I wouldn't be able to make this post. Also this post is making me one step closer to my merit badge.

Thanks for reading!

Goal reflection for term 2

If you remember last term I had made a post about my 3 goals for 2015. That post had info about what my goals are and how much I've improved on getting close to achieving them. In this post I'll be doing the same thing.
Here are my 3 goals:
  1. I want to get my gold award
  2. Get my Merit, Excellence and Distinction badges to show leadership 
  3. To try and get head or deputy girl for 2016

With my goal for getting my gold award well I think i am doing ok , I mean it's term two and I have one of my small certificates for my bronze award so I still have a long way to go but hopefully I manage to get my bronze by the end of this term

My leadership badges goal is doing really good I've done a lot of blog posts but not enough and I've done all my can do's and must do's so that means I'm almost up to my merit badge! :)

For my third and last goal , it's really basically connected to my second goal because in order to get a place as a leader I will need to show good leadership which is basically the same thing to get my leadership badges.

So that was my reflection for this term on my 2015 goals
Thanks for reading

My discovery

Today , like every Friday , we had my discovery. Today my group was planning on making pasta from Italy but sadly it didn't work out. We had too much eggs and too less flour so it ended up being to sticky and it was no where close to turning into dough. Today my group and I learnt a lesson that maybe we should bring a bit more of the right measurement so then we have enough but also extra if we need it.

Here are some photos below of our amazing mango lassi's.

Here is our blender all ready and set to blend and all of us with the finished drink.

Leadership evidence - Librarian

Today Me , Lauren c and Alisha did our duty as a librarian for our leadership badges , we remembered our duty and we reminded our group members too. We helped out Mrs Ward by getting books out for students at the desk and putting books on the shelfs or maybe even helping out at the back with old shelf peices or old books and racks. Overall i think that today was really good and i love to see happy faces on students faces.

Leadership evidence- peer mediation

Today my group had peer mediation we went round wearing our bright green vests and our lanyard with an informative card reminding us if we need help during any problems. I remembered to show up on time and remind my friends to show up on time too. Today we had no problems all that happened was some minor issues that just needed a teachers help. Overall I think today's duty went well because no one was sad because no on had problems.

My poem- summer


Heading down to the beach to go have some fun
Slip , slop , slap and wrap
To protect us from the sun
Tasty , fresh mouthwatering fruit cries as I chomp down
Yummy and delicious ice cream melts in the volcanic temperature sun
Time to have some fun

Language features


I have highlighted the language features and where they are in the poem.

I have used these language features because it hooks the readers in and makes the poem interesting.
