BREAKING NEWS IT'S WORKING!!!
Hornbeam's Google classroom us up and running and ready for you all to use...
To access it, follow these steps:
1) Sign in to a Google account – this preferably will be your own or your child’s, this way when you log into the Google Classroom then any work, comments etc. will come up as being from your child.
If you don’t want to use or create your own google account then you can use your class e-mail address to login as below, the only drawback to this being that your child will then be logged in as 'Hornbeam' and will need to ensure they name everything clearly for me and their friends. The password for the e-mail address is AshfordHill.
2) Go to Google classroom (you can find it in the nine dot menu at the top right of a Google page or can just search Google classrooms)
3) Enter the class code - uoggt5b
4) Say hello and start looking around the classroom :)
Just e-mail if you have any queries,
While we are in the current situation of some families self isolating, I will be updating this page with work on a regular basis. It will be in line with what we are doing in class so that your children are not missing out on the fun!
We have exercise books available for those who are self isolating so please feel free to contact me and arrange some method of getting hold of one if you need it. Similarly, if you have any questions about the work or about anything, please feel free to e-mail me - my address is below.
My advice with this is to set aside periods during the course of the day that your children know are for doing school work - then keep to it and set it as a routine. This will help them get into the flow of working at home and could hopefully make life easier for you with respect to settling them in to work!
Hope you all keep well, look forward to seeing you all again soon.
I will update regularly but please continue with doodle tables and doodle maths.
Also I have created each of the children in the class an account on two new apps - Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots. This company have offered schools free access to the apps during this tricky time which is extremely kind. If you would like your child's username and password please e-mail me and I will send it to you.
