Home Learning and Google Classroom

Dear Parents and Carers of Class 3, Happy New Year to you all. School is now closed for most children so I will be setting home learning on Google Classroom. Please make sure you have logged your child into Class 3 as soon as possible. There is learning ready to be completed now and it will be updated everyday. Below, you can find a document to help you sign your child into the class so they can receive work and can communicate with me.  The other document gives you instructions for uploading pictures (of children’s work etc.) to the platform. The children’s login details were given to children the last week of term before we broke up for the holidays. Please let the school know if you are unable to do this or have lost the login details. Thank you so much. Take care and stay safe. Best Wishes, Ms Boote   Parent guide to google classroom Uploading photos to google classroom
