My plan for Year 8

I will do my best to become a prefect next year because they are the leaders of the school. The qualities I need to achieve this goal is I need to show everyone that I am a good leader, I can be responsible and I need to be reliable. I also want to strive to get better at Maths, which means I’m going to have to try harder to memorise the good strategies that I am taught.

The year of the Netbook

This year I have really enjoyed having a Netbook because you have easy wireless Internet access at home, which is great because since you have Internet you can easily access your Docs and any other learning facility on the net. Another thing is that you can work on a shared doc with your partner and you don’t have to be in the same place! Furthermore having a Netbook has helped me become a better blogger, because I have posted more blogs this year than any other year!

As much as I have loved having a Netbook there are some things that I haven’t liked. For example, When your at home the Internet connections sometimes don’t work as well as you’d hoped it would, which has bothered most of us. Secondly there are little captions that come up like: Major upgrade! or Wrong password, And the wrong password caption is annoying especially if another person is on your Netbook, It will reveal your password to them.

An advantage is that you can finish your overdue tasks off at home other than coming to school the next day and having to finish it off at lunchtime. Also at home you can go onto Maths Whizz and get ahead in your Maths.

Well from time to time It is hard to resist the temptations of the Internet like Games and other things but I sometimes am careful of what site I am on. I think I have been cyber smart because I am always aware of what site I am on and if it is a sensible site to be on.

It would be an absolute DISASTER to go back to pen and paper! Pen and paper isn’t that bad but It does make your hands sore from writing. With typing it is easier and much more efficient. Plus it is tidier to type because I must admit my hand writing is nasty so it would be better for me to stick to typing. It also help because If we were to go back to pen and paper: what if we needed to do research? We would have to take turns on the Multi Media machines.
