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.
