How to find and complete work on Google Classroom

On a laptop/computer

To find homework tasks or home learning tasks (remote learning) activities, your child should visit their classroom (e.g. 1CP) and then click on the Classwork tab at the top of the page.


On the Classwork page will be all topics on the left-hand side.  They need to click on the relevant topic - for homework, this will be done by 'homework', but in the event of a lockdown it will be done by 'week beginning'.


On the Classwork page will be learning materials and assignments.  Clicking on these will open up a preview window and the option to view the material or assignment in more detail.



On an iPhone/iPad

Visit the Classroom page on the Google Classroom app, then click on the Classwork button at the bottom of the page.


Clicking on an assignment or teaching material will open it up to a new page with the instructions on it.  To view the attachments or upload files, click on the Your Work area at the bottom of the screen.


The new screen will show attached files and the button that allows you to add attachments (e.g. documents, pictures) to Hand in to the teacher.


When an assignment attachment is opened, some basic editing tools will appear at the top of the screen.  To begin editing, click on the pencil icon.  For more advanced editing tools, click on the share icon (a square with an arrow pointing out of it). This will open the attachment in the appropriate Google app (e.g. Google docs).


Documents on Google apps automatically save.  To hand the work in, go back to the Google Classroom app and click on Hand it.
