Reading - Text Composition


In reading we have been learning to….
recognise the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)


My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types.

The Human Fly Trap

This story is about a boy who lives with his Mum, Dad and Sister. They were moving house while his Dad was at work. They had a moving truck that hadn't yet come. It was a really strange town. Their new neighbour was a old lady she came running over shouted get out get out. He went to the bathroom and found police tape in the bin. Later that night he went up to bed early and didn't have any curtains and suddenly lightening struck and a face appeared. I think this book is very enjoyable and you should read it if you like mysteries.

Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study


Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel See Yah, Simon


I found this novel good  because I learnt about muscular dystrophy


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 9/10 Standard
    • I can monitor my understanding as it develops during my reading, and adjust my strategies to address any comprehension problems Eg: If I don’t understand a passage I have read I can re-read it, read-on, use pictures or diagrams, or explore the meaning of some of the vocabulary.
    • I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)
