How To Blog Safely…

A blog can be very exciting, it allows people from all over the world to read our work and make comments. We need to remember to follow a few simple rules to stay safe and to get the most out of our blog.

  • Children are to only use their first name when commenting.
  • Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only so as not to identify their child. Or post comments as “Harry’s Mum” or “Megan’s Grandfather”.
  • All posts will be checked by school staff before they are published to the blog.
  • All comments are moderated by school staff before they appear on the blog.
  • Always be respectful for other people’s work – be positive if you are going to comment.
  • No text talk – write in full sentences and read your comments back carefully before submitting.

These rules should help to make the blog a safe and exciting home for our work.

Click on the picture above to go to the ThinkYouKnow website and meet Hector, Lee and Kim and play a whole host of e safety games with information about how to stay safe online for children, parents and teachers including where to go if you need help.

Playground activities

 

Hello

Our school playground will be changing soon! 

Last year you and the School Council raised money to have some new equipment. 

As part of this we will have an outdoor store to keep playtime equipment in.

What do you think we need to store in here?

Please try to think of things that you would like but also things that other children i.e. younger children, would enjoy.
