Guidance for Online Learning - Google Classroom
For those children who are learning online using the google classroom platform due to isolation a preliminary message will go out asking if they can access google classroom. Children will need to reply to the an individual message to state that they are learning digitally. This will be on their feed on google classroom. Work will be set each morning that the children will be expected to do at home. This work is in line with the work that we are doing in school. This is to ensure there aren't any gaps with their learning. 
Logging On
To log on to google classroom children will need their school computer log in followed by and the same password they use to log on to the computers in school. If children are unsure of their log in they can find it in their reading log or contact school. 
If children are using an apple or android device a free app to access google classroom, where they remain logged in until logging out. This might stop problems logging in each day. Children who are accessing google classroom using a laptop or computer will need to go to the google website and log in using their details. In the top right hand corner of the screen there is a box made up of nine dots, after clicking that classroom will appear.
