For 2013 the class is a Year 7 and 8 in New Zealand. We have been blogging for four years. Some of the students are the same and some are new, however I did teach them mostly all before so very few are new. We begin this school year on February 2nd and end in December.
This blog is to share with parents a few things we do at school during the day. Often children tell parents they did nothing at school when asked! So this blog is a little something to help.
Blogging is also a way to open us up to other classrooms around the world and we are beginning to get more involved in that aspect of it. It is very exciting to be in contact with other classes around the world. It opens us up to so much new learning.
Any member of the class can contribute to the class blog and they are encouraged to do so. However now that many students now have their own blogs, (these are listed in the links on the class blog) most of the posting falls to the class teacher! Our class blog has become the starting off point for all the class bloggers.
