Why Blog?

This is our first blog post for the blogging bootcamp by Abbie and Luke in Gourock Primary P7. In P7, we think that blogging is a good idea because it allows us to share our ideas with others, so they can be inspired by our ideas too.  Also, it allows us to reflect on, talk  about and share our learning with the world.  Blogging helps us become better writers because it is not just our teacher Mrs Hunter that gets to write on it, we write posts too! It is important to think about our sentences, like punctuation we are using and that what we say is public. We also have a homework task every week called ‘P7 Discussion Directors’, where we have to discuss a topic with our parents at home then be prepared to take part in a discussion in school. We have started commenting about this on our blog now too and we think this promotes using the internet in a positive way. Our class blog is also a diary of our journey through learning, we can look back through this in the future, and remember things that we are proud of, for example, our P7 Burns Supper and Athletics competitions. In conclusion, we feel that blogging is great for our learning and encourages us to use the internet for educational things as well as for our leisure! By Abbie and Luke

  1. Abbie & Luke,
    What a great post for your first one in the bootcamp. I love the idea that Mrs Hunter is not having to do all the work and you are getting to share too.

    You are away ahead of the bootcamp with a lovely looking blog header.
    I love blogging too!

  2. I’m having blog envy!
    Great blog P7! We recently had a Burns Lunch which we really enjoyed. Sounds like your Burns Supper was a great success.
    Well done!

  3. We are proud of Mrs Hunter and her fabulous class for producing such an interesting and informative blog. It is a little bit ( or maybe a big bit!) beyond my capabilities so I think I need to borrow one of your pupils Mrs Hunter!

  4. Well done Abbie and Luke! What a fab post! You can show us old teachers how to do it!
