Why are we Blogging?

We had a recent staff meeting introducing all our staff to the world of blogging with the intention to inspire them to start blogging and to support the school blog.

Some of our friends from twitter shared some excellent resources to help explain the benefits of blogging:

The impact blogging can have on children’s writing – David Mitchell, founder of Quadblogging


We are also trying support the “100 word Challenge,” a fantastic resource, founded by Julia Skinner, which we are trying to encourage our children to get involved with. Each week a new prompt is given and the children’s efforts can be uploaded to the website and shared with the world! Read more here:

    Recently had the opportunity to visit Springwell during holiday and saw the magnificent work of the students posted throughout. My wife, who is a Teacher Assistant here in the US, and I were very impressed. It seemed to us that the students and staff at Springwell formed a wonderful team! Everyone has reason to be very proud! We hope that all have a wonderful school year!
