We were delighted to be using the new 30 Chromebooks for the first time this morning. With Mr Goodman, we were learning how to create multi media presentations using Google Slides.
Please enjoy our video guide that shows our commitment to staying safe online.
We hope that you and your families are well. We are mindful of the challenges that you are all facing at this time and the impact it is having on your children.
Since the announcement by national government to close schools we have been working really hard to provide engaging learning materials and to stay in contact with you. We’ve also been listening to your feedback on your experiences so far. In parallel we have also been looking at ways that we can better use technology to support the learning process and to enable communication between teachers, pupils and classmates.
Therefore from Monday 27th April we have decided to introduce Google Classroom as we believe that this will bring lots of practical and positive benefits. The key benefit is that it will make accessing learning tasks easier and more manageable for you and your children.
We feel that the move onto Google Classroom is a very positive one, making access to learning easier, as well as giving a greater sense of class community. We are looking forward as a staff to the opportunities Google Classroom will bring and hope you will share our optimism at what is a challenging time. There are many schools around the country moving to platforms like these and once we are back to normal, we very much hope that we will continue using Google Classroom in other ways too. If, however, you have any questions or concerns whatsoever, please do not hesitate in contacting Mr Goodman firstname.lastname@example.org
