Myth Busters - remote learning

15 January 2020
Some teachers have arranged Google Meet sessions with their classes to trial whole class sessions. Please read the following guidance:

 

Google Classroom/Meet Use Agreement

The safety of both children and staff when using this technology is paramount and we will be following relevant advice from Google Classroom/Google Meet, the Children’s Commissioner and the NSPCC. In order to protect both children and staff, we require that if you wish to take advantage of these opportunities on Google Meet, you agree to the following:

An appropriate adult must remain in the same room as the child during video or conference calls to monitor and ensure they are safe and using it appropriately.
Children taking part in the meeting must be dressed like they would for the day time (uniform isn’t necessary, but they should be fully dressed in clothing that covers top and bottom half of the body).
All members of the household must be aware that the meeting is taking place and make sure they are also suitably dressed and use appropriate language and behaviour when nearby or in the background.
Screenshots, photos or recordings of Google meetings must not be made and the links must not be shared with others.
Children can only use Google Meet when the teacher is present.
The comment options have been limited. If they do post anything that’s inappropriate or bullying in nature on comments or chat action will be taken.
The chat bar is for children and teachers to communicate about the work sent in. Any concerns can be raised through the school office email address, not personal teachers email.

By using google classroom/Meet you are agreeing to this agreement which will be available on our school website.

Logging in

 

To log in either:

follow this link - https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin/signinchooser?service=classroom&passive=1209600&continue=https%3A%2F%2Fclassroom.google.com%2Fu%2F0%2F&followup=https%3A%2F%2Fclassroom.google.com%2Fu%2F0%2F&flowName=GlifWebSignIn&flowEntry=ServiceLogin

or 

type into google - google classroom and follow log in links. 

 

Children will need to sign in using their username in the following format: 

 

surname.firstname@castleludgershallschool.co.uk 

 

and the password that has been provided to parents by class teachers via Class Dojo. 

 

Below is a short video that will help with getting logged in but the log in credentials DO NOT match your child's log in details. Please see above for this information. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First Login to Google Classroom

This video shows you how to log into Google Classroom with your child for the first time.

Viewing Classwork 

 

Once your child has logged into their account and accessed their class they should click on the middle tab along the top that says classwork. This will show all of the activities that have been set by their class teacher for the day. 

 

 

Your child should then click on an activity that they wish to complete first. This will bring up a summary of what the teacher has asked the students to do and display what resources are attached to the learning. 

 

They should then click onto view assignment or other type of activity by clicking the button shown at the bottom of the picture above. 

 

This will then take the child through to this activity. Here you can view all resources, write a comment to the class teacher if you need further support and submit your learning back to the teacher when you have completed it. (Please see instructions below for more information on this.)

 

Submitting work on Google Classroom 

 

Once your child has completed their learning please remember to click on the 'Mark as Done' button. This will notify the class teacher that your child has completed this task.

 

If your child's class teacher has asked for a picture or any other evidence to be sent to them, please click on the 'add or create button'. 

 

 

This will bring up a menu of ways that you can submit your evidence depending on what has been asked for by class teacher. 

 

If a photograph of your child's learning has been requested, please click on the file option this will then prompt you to search your computer for the correct file to attach as below. 

 

 

If at all possible, you may find this part of the process easiest done on your phone or other device that allows you to take photos and use the Google Classroom app which is downloadable through your app store. 

 

On the app you can view your child's work like in the picture below: 

 

Then you will need to click on the up arrow above 'Your work' shown in picture above and you will be given the following options. 

 

Please select add attachment and you will be given a menu of ways to attach your child's learning as shown below. 

 

You can then choose to select a photo you have already taken or use your camera to take a photo of your child's learning. 

Accessing Google Classroom on an Xbox or PS4

 

We are aware that some parents are accessing Google Classroom via their phones, this is fine if works for you, but wanted to share that it is possible to access Google Classroom via your consoles at home if you have one. 

 

Please find below a helpful guide on how to access Google Classroom via an Xbox or a PS4. 

 

 

 

Home Learning for January 2021

 

For the week commencing 4th January 2021 we will be providing children with log ins to access an online classroom via Google Classroom. Each child will receive a log in that links them to their class teacher and online learning. These log ins will be given to you along with instructions of how to access it on Monday 4th January 2021. Learning that is uploaded onto the Google Classroom will match the learning that your child's class teacher would have provided had your child been in school that week and also match the learning that the children who are in school will be receiving. 

 

While we are finalising this we have put together the following tasks for children to complete at home on Monday 4th January 2021. 

 

English

At the start of each new term we ask the children to complete a 'writing for pleasure' activity. This involves the children writing about a topic of their own choice in a style that they wish. This could be in the form of a story, poem, recount of an event or an explanation. It is up to them! As the children get older we give the children longer to complete their writing. 

 

Year R - 15 minutes writing time. 

Years 1 and 2 - 30 minutes writing time. 

Years 3 and 4 - 45 minutes writing time. 

Year 5 and 6 - 1 hour writing time. 

 

The children could add an illustration to their finished piece.
