To put it as simply as possible – a blog is a type of website that is usually arranged in order from the most recent ‘post’ (or entry) at the top of the main page to the older entries towards the bottom. Posts can be about anything and the reader can leave a comment about what they read.
At Byker Primary we have a school blogsite, which was started in 2012. The aim of the blogsite was originally to give a wider audience for children to write, in the hope that it would create a fun and original way for children to display their writing.
As the blogsite enters it's fourth year, it has become an integral part of everyday life in the school and also a great way for parents to find out what their children have been working on in their classrooms.
Some of our successes have even made the local newspaper, including the famous author of Street Child, Berlie Doherty, praising on one of our children's posts; an Angolan teacher commenting on an article a child wrote about Angola; Helen Skelton (TV Presenter) getting in touch from the Arctic and several children's writing being showcased on the 100 word challenge website!
