Home Learning at Mendip

General information

Teachers will set work for all lessons on Google Classroom which students should complete during their normal lesson times.

Google Classroom can be accessed from any web browser (by logging into to gmail with their school email address and password) or from the Google Classroom app on their phone or iPad.

Students need to find their relevant class, then look for that lessons assignment (should be dated) and complete the work as directed (the video below shows what this should look like).

Once they have complete the work they should upload evidence (this could be as simple as a photo) to show that they have completed the work.

What to do if there is no work for a lesson on Google Classroom

If for any reason work has not been set (most likely due to staff illness) then students should access work from the super classroom (these are labeled with a 'z' prefix, see start of the video).

If a students suddenly does not have internet access then paper based work has been sent home with them to allow them to continue their studies.
