Leaving a blog comment is easy! Not only is it a great way to interact with us but it is also very rewarding for children to be able to connect with people that have taken the time to visit our blog. So if you visit, please leave us a comment! Here’s how to do it: 1) You can either click on the HEADING of the post you wish to comment on OR click on the underlined COMMENTS link under the post. Both of these will direct you to the same place. (If there is glitter text in the heading, click on the COMMENTS link) 2) Type your comment in the comment box titled ‘leave a reply’. 3) You should identify yourself by first name only, or ‘Billy’s Mum/Dad’ etc. 4) Type in the anti-spam password as it appears (this stops advertisers using our blog) 5) Press submit comment 6) Mrs Egerton must approve your comment before it appears on the blog (for safety reasons) 7) Make sure you check back in to see if you have a reply to your comment and reply again where possible – conversations are what keep the blog ‘alive’!
