Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, thank you so much for embracing all things Google Classroom. I know we have had a few teething problems with it, but I feel it has been a really successful remote learning tool for the children to use.
I have attached a document below that reminds you of how to get logged onto the account and what to do once you are there. I have also included the video that I posted earlier in the term, that also explains the steps needed.
If there are any issues, please do not hesitate to contact your classroom teacher, who will be able to assist you further. We will be posting our remote learning policy in the coming days too, so please do look out for that.
What a rollercoaster 2020 we have all had and life continues to twist and turn at the moment. With some children now isolating, we wanted to ensure every child in the school has access to Google Classroom.
This can be used for remote learning, so that the teacher of your child can send out work to them each week and can also provide feedback for your child’s work on it.
The video shows you how to get logged into Classroom by going onto Gmail.com and entering the child’s details. I will endeavour to send out each child’s email address and password in the coming days.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let us know and one of the staff will help you and your child in accessing Google Classroom.
Hi St James’ family,
Just a little something from the staff at St James to say thank you so much for all of your support during these testing times of lock-down.
Stay safe and we all hope you have a fantastic summer.
St James’ staff
Can you believe that this will be the last piece of home learning that I set for you? This week it’s still important that you keep up with your home learning as you will be having seven weeks off school. Try and watch the Stormbreaker film if you can – you must ask permission first please – to see what happens to our hero, Alex Rider. The maths this week is all about circles, pie charts the mean and 3D shapes. Quite a mixed bag! In history we are learning about the Great Thinkers and in Geography we’re having a campaign to save the rainforest.
I hope I get to see you on Friday for a proper send off. I know it is going to be a really special day. Watch out too for my video to wish you well over the summer.
