From Monday 20th April, pupils will be accessing their learning through Google Classroom – a digital learning platform created by Google. All learning will be set by school staff through the platform and pupils can complete their learning and submit it online.
What is Google Classroom?
Google Classroom is a free application which allows teachers and students to communicate and can be used to organise and manage learning tasks. It forms part of Google’s G Suite for Education which is used in many secondary and further education settings as it enables distance learning. It has an uncomplicated and user-friendly interface that will help you manage learning at home at this challenging time.
Completing and submitting learning
You should check the platform daily to see if any new learning has been set for your child. Some pieces of learning will have a deadline for submission; children should be encouraged to complete the learning by the given dates.
We understand that parents and carers may be concerned about the amount of screen time children are being exposed to already. Assignments can be completed on paper and then a photo of the learning can be submitted on Google Classroom. For tips on how to manage screen time, tap here.
ITop of Formf you require further support, please contact your child’s class teacher in the first instance.
