King's Community Classroom w/c 25 May

We want you to be able to access all the support you need whilst studying from home. Below are various resources which provide you with the information on how to use our online learning platforms. Show My Home Work (SMHK) is our main method of communication and all home learning will be set here every Sunday. Alongside SMHW we will also be using Google Classrooms and a number of other online educational software packages that students are already familiar with.

Should you be experiencing problems with logging on or do not have access to an electronic device and require paper copies of work, or if you need support with any aspect of home learning, then please email: admin@kings.patrust.org.uk. Your email will then be re-directed to a member of staff who will be able to support you.

Details and support for SMHW and Google Classroom can be found below.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is an online learning platform that gives teachers and students the capability to share resources and work. Teachers can set work for students to submit allowing teachers to monitor progress and provide feedback for tasks where this is relevant. All home learning tasks will continue to be set and explained on SMHW, but teachers of some subjects may then direct students onto Google Classroom.

All students have a Google Classroom account. Student login details for Google Classroom are fullname@theks.co.uk. For example joebloggs@theks.co.uk. Students have been given their passwords.
