Every class at Pt England School has a class blog as well as some specialist blogs eg KPE, Talanoa Mai (extension), Sport, Gardening etc.
In Years 1-4 this is an essential part of the Learn. Create. Share. process
It is expected that classes will post at a minimum of once a week, but more frequently is preferable to ensure all students have a regular opportunity to share their learning online. This should be sharing and celebration of student learning NOT a showcase of exemplar pieces.
The class blog provides the foundation material for the Cyber Smart curriculum at these year levels
In Years 5-8 where the students all have individual blogs, the class blog is still very important
We would expect to see class blogs updated weekly, and a simple place to start would be to copy/paste a ost from a student individual blog each week as well as posting classroom updates and events
NB: The Pt England class blogs have a huge national and international audience and contribute significantly to the class teacher's CV, digital footprint and reputation
