Inspired by Mark Healy @cijane02 I started Blog Friday at our school in November last year. Today marked the second half term of blogs, the 13th week of Blog Friday.
Every Friday morning I send an email to all staff at our school, with a link to a blog post that I hope they will find interesting, inspiring or useful. I also wish them a happy Friday and a restful weekend.
Here is a list of the posts so far:
Putting your family first - John Tomsett
Silver Arrows - by Tom Sherrington
Fasten your seat belts - by Emma Kell
Developing Growth Mindset in the Classroom - by Pete Jones
Observing learning - Prof Rob Coe
Contemporary ideas in education - by Tom Sherrington
A Plan for Wellbeing - by Stephen Tierney
#JeSuisCharlie/#JeNeSuisPasCharlie - by Rory Gallagher
Tactical Serendipity - by Angela Maiers
Edubooks - by Shaun Allison
Coming together - by David Weston

I have had some wonderful feedback from colleagues who appreciate the blogs, the messages I send with them, the fact that I take the time to wish find and share these posts.
Some weeks it is hard to find the time to choose a blog, to write the message, to find the words, but every week I have had positive feedback (often from colleagues with whom I have never spoken), and every week it is worth it.
Blog Friday - a few minutes a week for me, but has had an impact on staff across the school. Thanks Mark for the idea and the inspiration :)
