Term 2 Book Review

Holden the great years the great cars

This book is about the Holden monaro, torana and commodore.
It includes a page for each year of racing in the ATCC (Australian touring car championship) and V8 supercars Australia and it also has pages about holdens in the WTCC (Word touring car championship). All the performance stats of the different engines and cars are in the book.

I think it is a good book because it has lots of facts and good pictures.

Term 2 Novel Study

Term 2 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel silver stream
I found this novel ok because the first part was boring but it got a bit better

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  3/10 and I would not recommend it to others to read because it is ok but I don't like it because it is quite boring.
