Ensuring The Right Person is Logged In/Out of G Suite/Google Classroom

If children are sharing a computer with their parents or another sibling and want to do school work with G-Suite/Google Classroom, they sometimes try and submit their work with the wrong account logged in.

This can be frustrating for the child who is unsure what to do when the other person is logged in, or mean that work is handed in under the wrong name.

In this video I suggest a number of solutions –

1) Chromebooks – The person who wishes to use the account must log in from the log in screen.

2) Macs/PCs – Creating a separate user account on the computer makes it less confusing as each person has their own space.

3) Using an Internet Browser on a Shared Computer – You can add various accounts but each person MUST log out when they are finished and check they log in to the correct account.

4) Smart Devices like tablets or smart phones may require you to log out the app you are about to use and ensure the correct person is logged in.

The main thing is to make sure you log out the G-Suite Account/Google Classroom when you have finished on a shared device.

P1 Monday 6th April Holiday fun

Some Challenge ideas to have fun with !

If you can get seeds from the supermarket, you can take responsibility for planting and caring for something in your garden. If not you can always weed and care for a particular plant border or vegetable patch.

Make an Easter basket using a template from the internet or design and make your own using junk, decorate it to make it look pretty. The Easter bunny might fill it with something !

Make a fact-file about France, by doing your own research.  Find out what French people eat, draw the French flag, draw and name some famous buildings and land-marks.

Build a den inside or out, I prefer garden dens myself. Your family can help you.

Write a shopping list with help from your Mummy or Daddy.

Using stones, or hard boiled eggs to paint or colour using felt tips, make 1 to represent  each member of your family.

Using the link below have fun learning The  Spring Chicken song. Make up a family dance and use your Mummy or Daddy’s phone to record yourselves.


Take care of your pet for a week, feeding, giving clean water and brushing them. Don’t forget to have fun and play with them too. If you don’t have a pet, look after the house plants, water them and dust off the leaves.

Draw your initials in flags of other countries.

Help make a simple meal or take responsibility for laying the table for a week.

Have a great holiday, I know it’s not what anyone had planned but enjoy it and make the very best of being together as a family unit.
