Well done to all of you who have managed to get to grips with this. It has been a learning curve for us all and we had no warning to be able to practise at school. Anyway, you're doing great! Just a few pointers:

If you go on the 2Do tab at the top, my comments will appear and you can choose to either 'continue work' or 'Hand in'. The background changes from blue to turquoise when it has been corrected and checked.
  • There is a 'display board' on the Sharing tab. When I have checked your edited work, it will be displayed for everyone to see.
  • If you have any problems please email school as we are constantly in touch with each other or in school to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
  • We have got this!
