School is now providing remote learning for all children other than key worker and vulnerable children. This can be accessed through the Google learning platform, particularly GOOGLE CLASSROOMS and GOOGLE MEET.

 

Please ensure that you have helped your child register and set up their login details  - using their own gmail address and not a parental one. In order to do this you MUST use GOOGLE CHROME as the web brower. 

 

Google Classroom can be accessed through laptop and desktop computers, most tablets and Ipads as long as they have updated ISO. It can also be accessed through XBox and Playstation consoles.

There are a number of Youtube videos which are helpful in explaining how you can use game consoles in this manner. Please see below:

 

 

Whilst school is closed, please use Google Classroom to check for remote learning projects, tasks and learning activities for your child to complete at home. 

Running alongside the activities set are the normal remote learning platforms such as Timetable Rock Stars, Mathletics and SATS Companion 

If you need to contact your child's class teacher whilst school is closed, please do so through their school email address - teachers initials @mellor.lancs.sch.uk. These can be found on each class page.
