Hi Year 5,
I hope that you and your families are all well. I hope that you have been able to enjoy the sunshine from the safety of your homes and that you are finding ways to keep yourselves busy.
I’ve set up a class login on https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk .
Username: Year 5 Horton Mill
Have a look and use this to find new books to read.
Here is some exciting news for you all. I have set us up with a class blog on Purple Mash. This will give you the chance to talk to me and to each other over the next few weeks. So, even if you can’t see your friends for a while, you can still talk to them safely here. Anything you post on our class blog has to be approved by me before it can be seen by others so please make sure that your comments are always kind. Once I approve them, everyone in our class will be able to see them.
The first thing I’d like you to do is simply to say hello so that I can check it is working for everyone. Here’s how to do that:
- Log into Purple Mash.
2. Select the ‘sharing’ icon at the very top of the page (this looks like a globe)
3. Select the ‘shared blogs’ tab. Then select the ‘class 5 blog’.
4. Click on the green + icon at the top right-hand side of the screen.
5. Add your comments to the title, summary and content boxes and click ‘save’. It’s ok is this is simply a hello for now.
Your comments will be sent to me first for approval. I will do my best to check and approve comments at least once everyday.
I hope that you will all start blogging soon so that you can keep in touch with your friends and me. We should be able to think of some fun ways of using this blog while we can’t come into school. If you have any suggestions, add them to your post.
Take care and I can’t wait to get your first posts.
