NZ Women's Rugby Sevens Article Review by Ricky

WALT: use Bloom’s Taxonomy to critically summarize a current event.

SC: I can;

- identify key words in a news article.  

- use critical thinking skills to analyse a current event.

I worked in a group to complete a bloom's taxonomy task about the Olympics with my four friends we each had a slide to finish individually and put it all in one presentation to understand the text we used a skill that our teacher taught us call analysing but she taught us to always read the words you know and research what the other words mean next time i would like to work on my researching skills and my typing skill to type faster.

This is my writing: On the third day of the olympics The NZ women’s rugby sevens were awarded a silver medal when the NZ women's rugby team versed germany nz had lost to germany and came second germany came first NZ came second and canada came third.    

This picture is about the NZ women's rugby sevens.

WALT reflect on the B.A.R.K New Zealand

Today we had a really interesting block with Heather and Tony.They were teaching us how to keep safe around dogs and they were giving us good facts about dogs.Heather had a dog called Dicyan and he has been trained well and knows how to listen to what people say (The Owner).He was a really cool dog.

Please leave a comment.....

Bark Presentation by Losana

WALT: reflect on how the BARK program came into our school, talking about how to keep ourselves safe while dogs are surrounding us.

So far I was able to find images of Dyson, and his owner Heather. They've taught me a lot about how to stay safe while, unsupervised dogs are running free around the environment, or even around yourself... The BARK program helps to prevent dogs, from becoming unfit, unhealthy dogs, to strong boned, and confident dogs... Without the BARK program some dogs wouldn't probably make it up to today.

Thank you to the Bark Program, helping dogs becoming what they should be, and caring for those dogs who need be specially treated!

Thank you
