What is Google Classroom?
Google Classroom is a collaboration tool for teachers and pupils. Mrs Shaw has created an online classroom and invited your child to the class. As well as using Google Classroom to complete tasks within school – we will create and assign homework tasks via Google Classroom too! Your child has their own username and password – they can access Google Classroom via the internet on any device.
