Everything you say here…IS Public! Anyone in the world can read it.
Please follow our rules:
Only use your first name no surnames
Keep safe and DO NOT reveal any personal information, use only your FIRST name when leaving comments. If there are two pupils with the same name, you leave your first name and the FIRST letter of your surname -e.g. Karina U
Write in good English including grammar and punctuation. [on other pages/posts, text language is OK for the Chat-page only]
Be polite and don’t post anything that could hurt anyone OR site links with a virus! Also, if anyone has left you a comment on your work, please respond to the comment, either by thanking the person for taking time to leave you a comment or in any other positive way. Do not use capital letters to write a whole message, e.g. I HAVE A NEW BOOK – it means you are SHOUTING! and we do not shout on the blog. 🙂 Also, do not repeat a message more than 5 times. It is pointless to say the same thing repeatedly.
Always show respect and be positive if you are going to comment on work of a class friend. e.g. John, I like the way you used adjectives, or: Jay, I don’t understand line 3, etc.
SPAM will be deleted immediately. There is a SPAM filter in place – via Edublogs – and any suspicious comments will get deleted without warning.
Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first name only so as not to identify their child. Or post comments as follows: ‘John’s dad’ or ‘Simran’s Nan’ etc.
Please do not post Video links [e.g. from youtube] in message boxes.
Please, do not upload a picture of yourself on the blog. Your picture in messages will get deleted if you upload it. Sorry! E-safety first!
If you have any more concerns about the security of the blog then please feel free to have a chat with Mrs V

How to leave a GOOD comment – on your class friends’ work published on the blog. We are always POLITE when leaving comments. We give CONSTRUCTIVE comments – comments that will HELP the other person.
Number one: you must always remember two give two stars (two good points) and a wish (something that they could improve on). For the two good points you must be specific. This means you must quote what you think they have done well. For example: I really like how you have used amazing adjectives (this is where you quote what the amazing adjective is) such as ‘ demonic’. To quote you must use quotation marks like these ‘………. ‘.
After you have done your two good points, think of something they could improve on. For example, they could use a simile or an adverb or a different variety of openers. But once you have given your point you must give an example of how they can use it. So if you have given them advice to use a simile, then put that into a sentence. For example ‘….he was as cunning as a fox…’. So remember always give an example of what you mean so that the writer understands the advice that you are trying to give them.
Number two: use schema (pronounced sc-ee-ma). This means to think of something which reminds you of that thing. Say if you went on holiday (the writer has written this) you could write about your holidays if you had a great time or not E.T.C. It is a way of connecting with the writer. You could begin your sentence by ‘I remember a time when…’ So use schema.
Another the way of connecting with the writer is, to ask them a question. Connect your text to things you already know. You could write about your own experiences. You could ask a question like ‘Have you even been through this?’ Remember always add a question mark after your question.
Number three: always leave your blog address. By leaving your blog address the person’s work who you have commented on is encouraged to come on to your blog and leave you a comment (hopefully). And if you have asked them a question, then they can answer it on your blog. This is a great way of attracting other bloggers from around the world (who have your blog address) to visit your blog. You should put your blog address at the end of your comment, for example ‘from ….. at www.ubuntu.primaryblogger.co.uk’
And finally Number four: PROOF READ your work at the end of your comment. I think that this is the most important step of them all. You should always proof read your work for spelling mistakes, words which needed to be added or simply if a sentence needs a capital letter/ full stop. It is so easy to write a sentence which does not make sense, so read out your comment quietly to your self to see if it does make sense.
The way I do my comments is, first I write my comment up in Word, check all my grammar, spelling ETC in my comment, then I copy (shortcut-ctrl c) and paste (shoutcut-ctrl v) it in to the comment bar.
SO NOW YOU KNOW HOW TO LEAVE A GOOD COMMENT!
