Mrs Baker's Blog

Welcome to our school blogs. We use these for two reasons, one to show you what we have been up to and secondly so that teachers can put home learning onto the blog and the children can respond to this.

In each class we have a blog. Each child has their own username and password to log onto the blog.  

We will share our learning adventure with family and friends around the world. There has been lots of work done on this and It has been proven that children can improve their writing through blogging – as they have a real audience and purpose to write for.

The children will be given more detailed internet safety lessons and will then be given their own usernames and passwords, so that they can write their own posts as well as comment. Each class teacher will be the administrator for their own class’s blog.

No posts or comments will be published without an administrator checking it first. However, teachers will not correct all the children’s spelling before publishing – it is important that the children are encouraged to edit and improve their own work, rather than rely on teachers to correct it for them.

Blog Rules at St Columba's are non negotiable 

  • Keep safe – don’t reveal any personal information or personal photos.
  • Write in correct, standard English – including capital letters, good grammar and punctuation.
  • No text talk. Please write in full sentences and use proper punctuation. Make sure you double check your comments carefully before submitting them.
  • Use your blog name not your real details.
  • Be polite – don’t post anything that could hurt anyone. Always show respect towards other people and their work.
  • Make sure you work is your own, no copying and pasting please.
  • Keep your passwords safe. Don’t give them to anyone. If you think someone else knows it, tell your teacher immediately.
  • Remember, even if you post from home, these rules still apply.

The farm has come to St Columba's

admin on: Mrs Baker's Blog

We have been really lucky today to have the farm visit us.

They have brought lots of farm animals and every child has had the opportunity to go out and be with them, talk about them and handle them. The smiles have been infectious today from both the children and staff

          

I'd recommend it to any other school that was looking to give their children a fantastic experience.
