Hillside First School have introduced Google Classroom, our online learning platform for years 1 to 4.
Google Classroom is a web-based learning environment and offers a digital safe space for students to view class tasks, access learning materials, view posted assignments, and hand in completed work. Through Google Classroom, children will be able to complete home learning tasks online and submit work to their teacher for review.
Step-by-step parent instructions on how to access and use Google Classroom can be downloaded below. We hope you find the information useful in helping you to understand, use and access Google Classroom.
We would suggest that after accessing your child's classroom, you and your child familiarise yourself with the platform together. This is where teachers will set work and send messages within the class stream. There will be a range of ‘assignments' posted and some of the tasks can be uploaded/completed online for the teacher to view.
Please regularly discuss online safety with your children. Our online safety page has lots of advice and useful downloads.
