As part of our E-Learning Strategy at Target Road School each class has a blog and the expectation is that teachers (and eventually students) will share the learning that is happening in their classes.
We believe that blogging is a great vehicle to teach our students to be good digital
citizens and gives the students an authentic audience for their learning.
We encourage you to visit your child's classroom blog and leave a comment to encourage their learning. Each blog has a page link of how to write an effective comment.

|When you read a blog post we would love you to make a comment.|
- Click on the heading of the post you wish to comment on.
- Scroll down until you can see the “no comment or leave comments” section..
- You will be asked for your name* and email address/website (email and website is optional and will not be published). **We ask adults who leave comments to please only use your child's first name and your relationship so the class can identify who left the comment e.g. 'Tony's' Mum, Lucy's Nana
- Click “submit comment”.
- Your comment WILL NOT appear straight away. It is emailed to the class teacher to check first. If your comment is okay it will soon appear on the blog!
We would prefer to have comments that add to conversation, rather than I like your blog.
A commenter might compliment the writer in a specific way or add new information. Another idea is to make a connection. Maybe the post reminds you of an experience that you've had. Share that connection! Try to end your comment with a relevant question. That way, an interesting conversation can develop.
