Google Classroom can be accessed through a free App either on the Apple Store or Google Play on both Apple and Android devices as well as through the internet on laptops or desktops. If accessing on the internet on a laptop or desktop, type in classroom.google.com into the address bar. Children will see a log in screen and will need to enter their username and password which can be found on the inside page of their Reading Record.
On the ‘classwork’ tab, the pupil’s will all find this week’s homework for their class, they may also be some additional assignments, quizzes or questions that are set. Clear instructions will be written to explain how to complete each task. Children don’t need to save anything anywhere as Google automatically saves their work as they go in a folder that their teacher can see.
If there is an issue, children can send a private message to their teacher asking for help. Obviously, this is not a chat room, so please ensure your children are asking appropriate questions, not just striking up a conversation!
We hope that your child enjoys engaging with this learning platform!
