Martha Payne, from Argyll, has now recorded more than three million hits on her NeverSeconds blog.

Martha’s dad added this:

Martha’s school have been brilliant and supportive from the beginning and I’d like to thank them all. I contacted Argyll and Bute Council when Martha told me what happened at school today and they told me it was their decision to ban Martha’s photography.

Obviously lots of interesting things to ponder. I am mostly thinking about the value or real tasks, pupil choice, audience and purpose.
