Aimee’s Blog

 

Aimee is a new UP for It Juniors student character for 2014/15. She has been blogging since the second week in September about starting at university.

Aimee is accompanied on her blog by the variety friends that she has made at university and has at home.

The blog aims to introduce children to what life is like at university and to use the themes of Aimee’s Blog to aid their own thoughts and development.

Activity sheets for KS2 to go alongside the blog are being produced regularly. These sheets can be used in a PSHE context to aid class discussion or independently as a reward or filler. They are designed blog style.

Currently the blog is being updated on a weekly basis. It can be used weekly or in a block at any time of the year. There is the opportunity for children to ask Aimee questions or give her advice by writing in the comments box on her blog page.
