Why are we Blogging?

We had a recent staff meeting introducing all our staff to the world of blogging with the intention to inspire them to start blogging and to support the school blog.

Some of our friends from twitter shared some excellent resources to help explain the benefits of blogging:

The impact blogging can have on children’s writing – David Mitchell, founder of Quadblogging

 

We are also trying support the “100 word Challenge,” a fantastic resource, founded by Julia Skinner, which we are trying to encourage our children to get involved with. Each week a new prompt is given and the children’s efforts can be uploaded to the website and shared with the world! Read more here:

If your child now has a log on please watch this tutorial on how to start blogging on our school blog:

I would like to thank: Sway Grantham, Julia Skinner, Sheli Blackburn, David Andrews, Cherise Duxbury, David Mitchell for their help and their ideas towards blogging. Much appreciated.
