Uploading learning

You can upload your learning on Google Classroom once you have joined. You can add pictures as an attachment (if you have completed the work in your book) or work on the documents that have been sent and turn it in. This will allow your teachers to send you back your learning with feedback. This is instead of drop box.

Some of you are already doing this and we have really enjoyed seeing your learning and providing feedback.

You can also ask us any questions on the class stream.


Madison has completed some amazing work based on Friday's Virtual School Trip!


Remember to keep up with your virtual PE Lesson everyday!
