Google Classroom information
Instructions for download and access
Google Classroom can be accessed through a free App either on the Apple Store or Google Play on both Apple and Android devices as well as through the internet on laptops or desktops. If accessing on the internet on a laptop or desktop, type in classroom.google.com into the address bar. Children will see a log in screen and will need to enter their username (……….@allington.kent.sch.uk) on the first screen and press ‘next’ their password needs to be entered on the second screen.
The ‘stream’ which is the front page, is where teachers’ direct children to learning links and websites and would be the best place for children to explore when they first access their classroom.
On the ‘classwork’ tab, there may also be assignments or questions that are set. Here you will find instructions to explain how to complete each task- some tasks may be completed online, while others will be recorded in their exercise books. Children don’t need to save anything anywhere as Google automatically saves their work as they go in a folder that their teacher can see. Work will be reviewed by the class teachers and feedback provided where appropriate.
If there is an issue, children can send a private message to their teacher asking for help. Obviously, this is not a chat room, so please ensure your children are asking appropriate questions, not just striking up a conversation!
If there are any issues with passwords/usernames, please contact the school office by email and we will do our best to resolve the issue promptly. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
