An Invitation to Comment

To our studentstheir families, friends and other visitors


You are very welcome to our Classroom Blog.

During the year you will see class work here.

You are invited to make comments on this blog.


Our classroom rules are very simple:

‘Be kind. Be safe. Be fair.’

I would ask you to do this online also.


So when you make a comment on this blog

I would ask you to

Be safe.

During the year we will learn about being safe online.

Do not give your surname or address.


If you look through this blog you will see

that Teacher is careful to be safe.

She does not put any photographs

of children on the blog.


Be kind and fair.

Comments should be helpful and friendly.

Think about what you are going

to say before you write it.


Check what you have written

before you press ‘Submit Comment’.

Be careful to use the correct spelling.

Remember sentences begin

with a capital letter

and end in a full stop.



People see this as shouting online.


I hope you enjoy this blog.

I know you will like seeing your work here.


Teacher will just give your

first names with your work.

You should only use your first name

when you are making comments online.

Parents who leave comments

are asked not to use last names either.

  1. Yes Chip the Chipmonk is very cute. We had two pet chipmonks once. They were very cute, but the big chipmonk was mean to the little one.

  2. Thanks Vicky. I hope to give every child at least one child to be ‘the reporter’ or ‘interviewer’, but only if they want to be 😉

  11. Hi Teacher

    The podcast you made for the irish prayer really helped.

    I was stuck on a few words

    but now I’v got the hang of it.

  12. I think JC’s food chain is fantastic and I love all the food chain games. I think they’re super. I love Senan’s Write a Book and Shanes Write a Book

  13. Thanks Jack S. I agree. JC’s food chain is great. The food chain games are fabulous and there are so many of them. It made learning so easy and so much fun. I agree that Senan’s Write A Book was great. It was so funny and quirky. Shane’s is great too; very unexpected what happens. Good plot. I liked your Write A Book very much also 🙂

  14. Thanks for your kind comments Tara.
    The blog is only as good as the children who work for it 🙂
    The children are great
    and so the blog benefits 🙂
