Information for parents
Google Classroom is a web – based learning environment. When logged into Google Classroom, students can collaborate with their peers and teachers. Google Classroom offers a digital safe space for students to view class tasks, access learning materials, view posted assignments and turn in completed work.
We would suggest that after accessing your child’s classroom, you and your child familiarise yourselves with the platform together. This is where teachers will set work and send messages within the class stream. There will be a range of ‘assignments’ posted and some of the tasks can be uploaded/completed online for the teacher to view.
The ’stream’ is the front page, where teachers will send messages, direct children to learning links and websites. This would be the best place for children to explore when they first access their classroom.
The ‘classwork’ tab is where assignments will be set. Clear instructions will be written to explain how to complete each task. Children will have until 3pm to complete their work. Anything 'turned in' after 3pm will not be marked on the same day.
If you have a question for your child’s class teacher, you can send a private message asking for help. This is not to be used as a chat room and should be used appropriately.
There is no expectation to print work out, you can complete it using Google docs, write on paper/exercise book and send a picture in via your child’s Google Classroom or complete tasks in a creative way.
