Learning at Home During Lockdown

Unnamed

The teachers have been working on ways to continue to support your child whilst the school remains closed and we have developed an online learning platform using Google Classrooms which we feel will help to meet the needs of you and your child at home.

Google Classroom enables your child's teacher to schedule work each day, allows your child to submit work for marking and enables teachers to give feedback to your child on how they have done and any improvements they can make to their work.

The teachers will set daily tasks for the children to complete, but to begin with you will need to do the following:

  1. Visit Google Classrooms using the web link or alternatively download the app onto your phone or tablet. 
  2. You will need to use an existing Google account or set up a new one to sign in. You will be prompted to do so when you visit Google Classrooms.
  3. Use the code kmdsvnd to join the school.
  4. You will find your child’s individual class underneath ‘classwork’.

We appreciate that this is a new way of working- it's new to us too, and that things may not run as smoothly as we'd hoped, especially during the initial stages of its use, but if you have any problems at all, please email me at courage@kilburn-jun.derbyshire.sch.uk.   I will be available over the weekend to assist you with any issues you might experience logging on to the classroom.

Best wishes,

R.Gordon
