We have a few simple guidelines that we need to keep to in order to make the most of our class blog:
o Children should only use their first name when commenting.
o Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only so as not to identify their child, or post comments as “Charlotte’s Mum” or “Evan’s Grandfather”.
o Do not post photos from or links to other websites without permission from Mr Edwards.
o All posts will be checked by Mr Edwards before they are published to the blog.
o All comments are checked by Mr Edwards before they appear on the blog.
o Always show respect towards other people’s work – be positive if you are going to comment. Why not try using Two Stars and a Wish – that’s two things you really like about their work and one thing that you wish they would do next time to make it even better.
o No text talk. Please write in full sentences and use proper punctuation. Make sure you double check your comments carefully before submitting them.
o Everyone in Oak Class will stick to these guidelines.
If you have any more concerns about the security of the blog then please feel free to have a chat with Mr Edwards.
This blog is a window into the world for Oak Class – we want to share what is happening in our School! The blog will contain a mixture of children’s work, updates about what we are doing and blog posts written by the children.
All the children will use first names only – for a full list of our blogging guidelines see this page.
The rules are designed to make blogging safe.
Children will be encouraged to comment on posts – again, they need to make sure they stick to our blogging rules.
Other schools and teachers from around the world may also view and comment on our blog. All the comments have to be approved by class teachers before they are published so this is very safe.
We’d also love for you to comment on our blog posts. Once again, please make sure you don’t use your surname when commenting. You can sign your comment as ‘Lucy’s dad’ or ‘Tyrone’s mum’ etc.
We hope you enjoy following our blog!
