HOW TO ACCESS OLIVER LIBRARY FROM YOUR STUDENT PORTAL

Here's a really useful video showing how to get to Oliver Library via your Student Portal.

GOOGLE CLASSROOMS for the LIBRARY

Ms Ratcliffe has set up a Google Classroom for each class in Years 3-6 for their Library work.  Students can access the code via their email account (through the Student Portal) or in their home learning pack. 

Ms Ratcliffe has used Google Classroom in the past, but never with this many Classrooms all at once, so be ready to help her along!  Students - once you have joined your Classroom, add a comment about what you think is the best thing about using Google Classroom, or the best feature it has.

During Term 2 these Google Classrooms will be used for your regular Library lessons. 

Ms Ratcliffe will also be posting the lessons on our school website:

https://croydonpk-p.schools.nsw.gov.au/links-surveys/library.html

and also providing access to the lessons in a paper format.
