We have our individual blogs!

Hi everyone!

It's been an exciting couple of days in Rm 3.  We have been learning how to create our individual blogs to share our learning with you...and they're live!  Check them out by going to the links on the Our Blogs page.

These will be a record of our learning and they are not expected to be completely perfect all the time as they are a little like a draft writing book in many ways.  We are aiming for the top though which means that we will have a strong focus on reader courtesy - making sure our posts are of high quality for our readers.  Currently, we are redesigning an older rubric of guidelines to meet our individual learning needs.  This will give us a high standard to aim for.

We have been looking at a range of blogs to see what an effective learning blog should look like.
As always, our focus is on Digital Citizenship so we have our settings set to make sure that all comments are moderated by Mrs H.  We're also going to be learning about what effective feedback for learning is and how we can provide that for each other so that we get the most that we can out of our learning.

We may want to keep some of our learning private and only share it with our parents and teacher. We will use links to Google Drive for this.  Just another way of knowing how to be confident, connected Digital Citizens.

Our blogs are in the early stages of development but will grow very quickly!


  1. Hi Room 3, I really love your blog. It is so informative and I've learned lots about you! I especially love your Why do we blog? page. What a great idea.
    I am going to introduce your blog to my class over the next few days. I work with 21 awesome Y8s in Christchurch. Guess what? They are all GIRLS! We'd love to connect with you. I know they will enjoy reading about your learning.
    Congratulations on your individual blogs, Room 3.

    1. Hi Bridget! Thank you so much for visiting our blog. We'd love to connect - especially with a school in my hometown! Hunua's school colours are red and black so I definitely feel at home here.
      Look forward to collaborating.
