At Brook Primary School, we are fully committed to providing quality opportunities for the children to work remotely from home. We have invested in a number of online learning platforms to help support and enhance the education of your children; with your support, we can ensure that the education of the children is not disrupted in the event of a further lockdown or a class having to self isolate. We are constantly reviewing the way in which we provide home learning and will continue to adapt and change it to ensure it is being used most effectively.

Seven ways to help your child with home learning
Please click on the link below to see some useful tips on how to support your child with their home learning. Please remember, the best home learning is a balance of digital/ online activities with written work in books or on paper.
All children have been set up with an account on Google classroom. Through this platform, they will be able to access work directly from their class teacher, upload their answers and receive feedback. There is also the facility for children to ask for help from their teacher if they are finding a piece of work difficult. In the event of a lockdown or self isolation, this is where the children will be directed to their daily work.
* Please note, you will no longer be able to access Google classroom through RM unify

Accessing Google Classroom through Xbox or Playstation
Did you realise that you can access Google Classroom through a games console? As long as your console is connected to the internet you can access the classroom in much the same way as using a regular laptop or tablet. You can also use a USB keyboard to make it easier but this is not essential.
