In Grade 5/6 we think blogging is very important. There are many reasons why we have a class blog and the diagram below outlines what we think are the most important reasons.
Since starting our blog at the beginning of this year we have had many visitors. This week we reached our first 1000 visitors. What an achievement!
It is also important to note that our work is being shared with an authentic global audience made up of other schools, teachers, students and community members. Our blog has been visited by 25 countries. How exciting!
It is really exciting when we get comments from other countries and even other places across Australia. Here we had posts from another Grade 6 class from Cranbourne East PS and another from Taradale Intermediate School which is in New Zealand!
What makes blogging even more special in our grade is when we get comments from our family and friends. This shows us that people care about and are interested in what we do at school! As our Term 2 blogging challenge continues, it has been very exciting to read comments from our parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. There are only 4 days left until the challenge ends and anyone could win!
