On this page you will find a variety of links to some of the different educational blogs I have set up over my time at BST.
Year Three Class Blog 2013-2014 – This blog was the first educational blog I set up after I first started the COETAIL course. I only began the blog in the summer term. You will also note that I have chosen Google Blogger rather than WordPress. The reason I chose Google Blogger is because I prefer the set-up, look and layout. I also began to see the possibility of using Google Blogger as a template for individual student blogs.
Summer School Blog 2015 to 2016 – This blog allowed me to showcase some of the fantastic movies produced by various Year Five and Six children during our first ever summer school.
Year Three Class Blog 2014-2015 – This blog gives you an insight into the teaching and learning journey the Year Three children took part in. I experimented a lot with this particular blog. I used a wide variety of web based and non-web based tools to add video, images and audio to the blog. This seemed to enhance it’s appeal to both students and parents.
Primary History Blog 2015 and ongoing – This is an ongoing blog which I started towards the end of the 2015 summer term. I had taken on the role of History Coordinator and was looking for a way to record, promote and share the fantastic history learning that was taking place in the primary school. I have also included all the new planning that has been put in place since I took over the role in September 2014. You will also find our history policy, videos of theme days and lessons, photographs of displays and children’s work.
Year 6 Class Blog 2015 to 2017 – This blog reflected the learning journey of Year Six students in my class for the two years I was in Year Six. It also acted as a portal to some of the students own blogs (this was new to Year Six at that time).
Year Four ClassBlog 2017 to 2018 – This blog gives you an insight into the teaching and learning journey the Year Four children took part in. I experimented a lot with my teaching and learning during this year. This was one of the most stressful yet profound years of my teaching life. I believe that during this year I truly started to understand what outstanding, relevant and meaningful teaching and learning should look like.
