Week #4 ’18

Don’t forget to moderate!

Team 100 are really getting into their stride now and leaving some cracking comments. When they do, you as the admin need to make sure you have moderated them. This means ‘giving permission’ for them to appear on the blog. Otherwise no-one can see them, including the student who received them!

Week #3 ’18

Lincolnshire gets a visit!

This is what they said:

If you would like a visit, just get in touch!


The first showcase of the new year has been published. You can find it HERE. Don’t forget to claim your certificate and blog badge if you are listed!

Latest prompt

This week we are going for five words. They must all be in your writing but can be in any order. The key is to plan beforehand so you get them all in and it tells a story.

The words are:

Obviously, your story will need a character and I think these words give you a couple to choose from!


The form will close on 30th September  at 23.45 UK time
