This half term, we are going to be developing our blogging skills. On Purplemash, I have set an example blog post as a 2do. Read it carefully and think about its features, for example, the date of the post, the heading, an introductory paragraph. Your task for today is to write a list of success criteria for a blog post - what must it have? This list could be written using a program on Purplemash, or on Word or using pencil and paper.
Challenge: Create a poster reminding others in your class of the features of a good blog post.
