Looking to the stars

Quad Blogging

Quad Blogging is an idea created by David Mitchell of Heathfield Primary School. It brings together classes with blogs from across the country into a ‘Quad’ over a 4 week period.

Imagine four schools that had a partnership/agreement that would mean that for a four week cycle, each school’s blog would be the focus for one week out of four. Each school in the Quad would spend some time visiting the blog of the school for that week, leave comments etc. After that week, another one of the four schools would be the focus and this would be repeated for the four week cycle and then repeated. It wouldn’t take the pupils long to work out that in their week, they would get a boost in visitor numbers and comments. This would give a real focus to have posts online ready for this bulge in visits.

In this cycle, our Quad contains the following class blogs:

Old Mill Primary School

Heron Primary School

Alex Wilson’s Class 

This will be the first cycle of the Quad and starts the week beginning 31st January.

We’re really looking forward to the Quad Blog and seeing how it’s all going to work!

    • You’re welcome blog675. We’re a special school and all the students have different learning difficulties which is why the class is a lot smaller than yours. I wouldn’t say it’s always calm but we do have fun!
