Dear all Parents,
Welcome back to a new summer term in Yellow Class.
Mrs Kershaw and myself hope that you have all had a lovely Easter break filled with chocolate!
Remember to keep checking our google classroom for recent websites that match the latest work we are completing in class. Many of these have been requested by your child who want to carry on having fun at home too!
Mrs Beswick & Mrs Kershaw

Google Classroom access instructions from Mrs Beswick:
Below you will see the google classroom video with instructions on how to access your child's assignments and how to send them back to the class teacher.
You will also be sent an email from school with your child's username and intake number (the year they started at Barrington; 19 or 20), password and class code which is drha6o4
When you have entered your child's username and password, if you have a 'g mail' account already set up on your device, it will automatically default to your personal account and so may come back with an error message saying 'class cannot be found'.
If this happens, you will need to make sure that you have signed out of your personal account before your child will be able to see their class. If in doubt, when logging in, look to the top right hand side where there will be a symbol for your account and you can either log out here or add another account and then follow the instructions to log your child in.
Remember, if you have any issues please get in touch and we will help as soon as we can.
Letterjoin is our scheme of learning that we use teach handwriting. There are lots of fantastic resources on here and I have attached the login and instructions for you to join. Last year we had individual logins but we have moved to one login for everyone this year. We have been focusing on caterpillar letters this week, so why not see what your child can show you they can do!
