Term 2 Book Review

This book tells the story of one hundred sportsmen and women of our time and shows the dedication and commitment needed to be a world record breaker. The book is split into different sports.
The sports in the book are american football, baseball, basketball, cycling, cricket, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, ice skating, rugby league, rugby union, skiing, soccer, sumo wrestling, swimming, tennis, triathlon and track and field. I think this is a good book to read if you want to learn about great sports people.

Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel castaway

I found this novel interesting because I liked learning about the shipwreck and how they survived for so long and I also liked that is was a true story.

During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.

National Standard this covers


  • Year 9/10 Standard
    • I can locate, evaluate, analyse and summarise information and ideas within texts and across a range of texts.
    • I have a large vocabulary that is connected to my own knowledge about the world and includes: - academic e.g observe vs watch - subject-specific (specific words about a subject (e.g feline) - technical terms (specialised vocabulary of a particular field.)
Overall I would give this novel a rating of  8/10 and I would / would not recommend it to others to read because it was a cool idea on how they turned a diary into a story because I have never seen a book like that before and it was also a good historical book.

Construct and describe simple loci.

I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions involving circles


400m track you take the two semi circles at the ends which is 36.5 then you double it to make the diameter. Then you times it by π which is 229.34m then you divide it by 2 which is 114.67m and that is what the ends are. For the sides you minus 400 with 229.34 which equals 170.66 then you half it which equals 85.33 and that is the length of the sides.
