  • As we go into term 2, for the next two weeks all year 11 students will be working on the Standard AS90935 Carry out a Physics investigation with direction for 4 credits.
  • We are going to prepare for this practical using iQualify. You need to log in with your school email and password. To login to AS90935 use this link  https://jchs.iqualify.com/login
  • At the end of this two-week period if you return to school then we will do the assessment and try to gain four credits. If we do not return to school in this time then we may revise our plan and start with another standard.
  • In this course you’ll learn how to plan and write a method, gather, record and process data and write a conclusion and discussion. The materials on iqualify is set up so you can learn at your own pace. So, although there are ‘suggested’ times for each page, they’re just a guideline. Plan your learning to suit you so that you can complete it by Friday next week. Through-out this course there are short activities. These activities are for you, not for someone to mark them. These activities give you a great chance to practise what you’ve learned and compare your answer to the model feedback. Look at the feedback carefully to see if you have missed out any aspects from your answer.
  • Sometimes people find it easier to scribble down a diagram or show their working with pen and paper. No problem! You can still store all your working and diagrams with the activity. That way you’ll be able to refer back to your answers when you’re revising. Simply take a photo of your work and upload it with the relevant activity.
  • Google classroom conference call which your class teacher will invite you to.

If we do not return to school in this time, then we may revise our plan and prepare for practise test 2 and 3 to ensure that we have mastered the content and gain achieved with Excellence in the External Examination.

  • This course covers the things you’ll need to know and be able to do for achievement standard 91156. In it you’ll find answers to questions like:
    • What is a cell made from?
    • How do substances move into and out of our cells?
    • What major life processes happen in cells?
  • The material is set up so you can learn at your own pace. So, although there are ‘suggested’ times for each page, they’re just a guideline. Plan your learning to suit you so that you can complete it by Friday next week.
  • Throughout this course there are short activities. These activities are for you, not for someone to mark them.

To all our year 12 students & their whanau hope you are all safe & well in your respective bubbles. As we start our distance learning programme for Term 2 the plan for the next 2 weeks is as follows:

  • We will be working on US 29508 (4 credits) Horticulture – Sow seeds and monitor germination and emergence under close supervision. Normally this would be done at school; however, due to current circumstances, you will need to rely on your experience and knowledge from Year 11 when you learnt how to sow seeds watched them germinate. With your skills, and with the help of any of your whanau, you will be growing your own little vegetable garden, which should come in really handy during the next few weeks of lockdown & alert levels to come.
  • If you have any spare seeds at home then you can pick an area at home where the seeds can be sown directly into the ground or into any type of container e.g 2L plastic ice cream containers, empty plastic fizzy drink bottles-1.5/2.25L you can cut open. (This is optional)
  • Google Classroom is the platform that will be used to communicate with the students. The normal school timetable will be followed and google meet will be used to teach the students. During this time, lessons will be conducted and students will be given the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts. New activities will be posted via google classroom. A logbook with photographic evidence needs to be kept on a weekly basis just like you did for US29502 and it should cover the following Outcomes:
  • Outcome 1 – Sow seeds and monitor germination and emergence.
  • Evidence requirements:
    • Prepare (soil in ground) or select propagating (growing) media (compost), and select container type and fill.
    • Sow seeds using materials and techniques.
    • Label sown seed.
    • Monitor germination and emergence.

You can sow as many seeds as you like but for your assessment pick 10 seeds per species that you will monitor via your labelling process. At least 6 of the 10 must germinate.
