The leadership trait I showed was Resilient because I was honest and strong when things got boring, The CARE value I showed was Active Thinking because I was Actively thinking when I got bored.

Reading - Evaluate Texts

Evaluate Texts Blog Post template


In reading we have been learning to….Apply some criteria to evaluate texts e.g accuracy of information and presence of bias.




We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

  Describing Authors Purpose

 Criteria to Evaluate texts

Evaluating A Range of texts

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information

Extended Abstract Task- Maths



I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions

Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.


Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed? 12
6 + 6 =12 human legs
12 x 4 = 48 cat legs
48 + 12 = 60


Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that Al gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?
Al= ⅓ 2/6
Bob= ½ 3/6
Chuck= ⅙

Des= ¼
