E- safety & blogging rules.
Welcome to our Year 2 Blog at Farsley Farfield
Our aim is to share our amazing learning adventure with family and friends around the world. It has been proved that children can improve their writing through blogging – as they have a real audience to write for. Our blog will also have educational and fun links for pupils to use.We hope too that it will be like a window into our classroom and will help to keep you informed about all the wonderful things we are learning together.
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.
Our Blogging Guidelines :
- Only use your first name – no surnames
- Keep safe – don’t reveal any personal information.
- Write in good English – including grammar and punctuation.
- Be polite – Don’t post anything that could hurt anyone.
- Always show respect – be positive if you are going comment.
- Make sure you work is your own – don’t copy from other sites – you can link the site in your post, if you think others will find it useful.
- Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only so as not to identify their child. Or post comments as “Aisha’s Mum” or “Umer’s Grandfather”.
- All posts and comments are checked before they are published.
Comments are a really important part of our blog. They inspire the children to do their very best and help us to be proud of our work. We really do appreciate your comments, so please do join in with our blog.
Please contact myself,Mrs Fisher, by placing a comment, if you have any queries or questions, or speak to me directly before or after school, in class 2F. You can also email me at [email protected]
It is really important that everyone knows how to keep safe on the Internet. We will be sharing these videos with the children and discussing the messages in them. At school the children will be using Mathletics, Purple Mash, Bug Club and Spelling City. They will also use the Internet to find information, and will regularly look at our class blogs and the links to other websites.
The Internet is full of amazing things, but a good analogy to use is to think of it as being a little like the whole world squeezed into a computer… most of it is wonderful, but in amongst all it’s beauty and awesomeness can lurk danger. We need to know how to avoid danger and what to do it we feel things are not quite right. The same rules we teach around stranger danger and safety apply on the Internet, like don’t talk to strangers, don’t share personal information and always tell an adult where you are going.
Please help keep your children safe on the Internet by making sure that they always tell you when they are going on the Internet and talk about the sites they are going to visit. Remind them of the rules below and watch these videos at home too.
