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 teach live lessons, 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.  

 

Tasks (assignments) for the children to complete will be posted on a daily basis. If you miss any, do not worry as they remain in the classroom. 

 

Please regularly discuss online safety with your children
