Good Morning Room 8
I am not in school for most of the day- please connect a data projector to one of the class desktops and this wikipage contains everything you need for Monday's learning.

REMEMBER Year 7 Fun Day TOMORROW;
Have you planned your shared lunch?
Remembered swimming togs?
Returned your reply slip?
Arranged parent help?

Spelling- 8.40am to 9.00 (then at 12 to 12.40pm)
Ensure spellings are copied into both spelling books and begin the 'ch' wordsearch. There is a hidden message once you have found all 22 words. (TIP- the 22 words appear in this week's spellings).

3 main goals for this session;
- Review your Term 4 goals in your ePortfolio and begin adding your reflections and thoughts about how you have gone towards achieving them. You will need to reflect in detail and give evidence of your achievements. - Create a new page, and link it to My Learning. Copy and paste the Y7 Puberty reflection template you will see in the 'School Resources'. Reflect on your learning in this unit using the symbols and text boxes. Make sure this is placed in your ePortfolio and named Puberty Term 4 2008
- Create another new page, and link it to My Learning. Copy the Y7 Social Sciences evaluation template you can find in 'School Resources'. Reflect on your learning, and use your wiki/ evidence of your learning to PROVE how informed, critical, active and responsible you were. Make sure this is also placed in your ePortfolio in My Learning and named Social Sciences Evaluation- Term 4 2008.

10.20 Team B Specialist to 12.00

12.00 Spelling- Continue with the spelling wordsearch and hidden secret code message.
If time try a spelling activity online (as a class) at this BBC Spelling site for confusing words.

Start- Numeracy Certificate Testing (x2 tests please)
Please check your portfolios and any returned test papers before you choose today's tests. Many of you are now almost complete on stage 1- maybe an afternoon test will help you achieve even more success!(Jackson Harvey is a very good helper with giving out tests and collecting them in.)
To use negative numbers
Play this interactive negative numbers game as a class- select 'Play Against a Friend' and play boys versus girls. Play best of 3!
