To encourage our children to keep blogging, Mr Parkinson is introducing a “Blogger of the Week,” award.
The way it will work – whoever Mr Parkinson feels has made a real effort to blog, comment and share ideas/examples of their work will win the weekly prize. The prize? A dinner time spent with a friend on an iPad.
Blogging has been proven to improve children’s writing, confidence and e-safety awareness. It gives your writing an audience and allows people to see what wonderful and talented writers we have.
Things I will be looking out for to find the Blogger of the week:
- Children who try to showcase their fantastic writing by either – writing a story, book review, review of their day, 100 word challenge or any other interesting post.
- Children who take time to read and comment on other people’s posts, this can be on our blog or others.
- Children who take time with punctuation and spelling – no text talk!!!
- It will not be the person who blogs the most, it will be down to children who have really made an effort to blog meaningful and interesting posts.

So good luck! I look forward to rewarding you for all your hard work!
