THE CLASSROOM – TOUR (VIDEO HERE)
There are two main sections in the classroom which can be found on the menu on the top centre of the page. – Streams and Classwork.

- Work through these as normal.

CODE OF BEHAVIOUR
There are facilities for your children to comment, post and discuss in the Google Classroom. We expect all children to use respectful language and behave respectfully towards one another and the teacher. The teacher will be monitoring this, and we ask for your support in this also. Please talk to your children about their digital footprint. LINK HERE Please also remind them of the high standards of behaviour in Canal Way Educate Together, that they are well used to.
The teacher will engage in the classroom, but please understand that this is not a live streamed classroom. Your teacher will not be there like a normal classroom – our staff have responsibilities and are managing their lives during this crisis also. They will be checking in, but we ask for your patience also.
As mentioned above, if a parent has an issue to discuss around Google Classrooms please email firstname.lastname@example.org instead of using the classroom forum.
