Welcome to the blog of Mrs Riding, the very lucky teacher librarian at Tenambit Public School. Here I’ll share my thoughts and reflections on various subjects, provide you with information about our fantastic library, the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge, and also share book reviews and quality work by you, our super students.

I’d love for you to leave a comment or submit a book review, but before you do please check the blogging rules below.

Blogging Rules

A blog can be very exciting, as it allows people from all over the world to share our learning and make comments. We need to remember to follow a few simple rules to stay safe and to get the most out of our blog. It is very important that we understand how to use the blog and the internet in a secure way. This ties in with National Curriculum objectives and ICT skills that children are expected to learn and apply.

The following guidelines have been established to ensure the safety of our pupils when blogging. The guidelines are also reminders of how to use the blog to improve writing and keyboarding skills.

Please follow our blogging rules:

Only use your first name when commenting – no surnames. If you have the same first name as another student in your class then add the first letter of your surname e.g. Emily S or Emily W.

Relatives who leave comments are also asked to use their first name only or to post comments as “Reena’s Mum” or “Gary’s Grandfather”.

Keep safe – don’t reveal any personal information (such as phone numbers, passwords, addresses etc).

No text talk – write in full sentences and read your comments back carefully before submitting.

Only make posts and comments that you will be proud to stand behind as your own.

Always show respect – be positive if you are going to comment and always remember that the blog is an extension of our school that the rest of the world is able to see.

All posts and comments are checked by school staff before they are approved.

If you do happen to find anything on here that makes you feel uncomfortable, or if you have any concerns about the security of the blog then please feel free to have a chat with your class teacher or Principal.

If you follow these rules, blogging will be an enjoyable and safe part of school life.

Happy Blogging!

  5. Hi Miss Riding it’s Halle here from 4S. I’m reading a book that I bought from the shops and it’s called Stop in the name of pants and its by Louise Rennison and I was just wondering if we have him or her on the library shelf.

    • Hi Halle, Sorry we don’t have any titles in the Georgia Nicolson series. Is this the first one in the series you have read?

  6. Hi Connor. I bought Big Nate: In the Zone a couple of weeks ago but it hasn’t been processed yet. I’ll put it in the priority pile along with the Dork Diaries and it should hit the shelves in the week 2. I’ll reserve it for you.

    Have you logged onto the official Big Nate website. I’ve signed up so I get all the latest info on when new books are coming out. There are also some games that look like fun and you can also create your own cartoons.

      It’s been a lot of trial and error, but my biggest go to has been the Edublogs user guide and when I couldn’t find the answers there I used the email support that they provide. They have always been very helpful and prompt in getting back to me.
