Hwb - Key Stage 2 Distance learning resources
Please find some further resources and support available for KS2 here via Hwb, covering a range of areas of the curriculum. This content changes and is update regularly.
VISIT HWB > Google for Education (Y4DS classroom)
Are you visiting the Google classroom regularly?
This is the best way for your child to submit tasks and receive marking and feedback from Mr Dyer and Miss Spiller.
While we appreciate not all tasks can be completed electronically - many assignments will be set via Google classroom linked to the weekly learning themes - with guidance on how to hand in work also found here
ALL PUPILS must access the google classroom regularly, we love seeing your work submitted and information on how to do this is available here. Pupils who have not submitted work are flagged to teachers on a weekly basis.
PLEASE NOTE - If any issues arise or support is needed, your child can ask for support using the hwb - Google classroom stream page (Google for Education)
If your child does not have their homework books, they can compete work via hwb or using any notebooks/sketchpads they may have at home.
