Google Classroom

Google Classroom is an online learning platform which enables teachers to collaborate and  communicate with students. Google Classroom serves as a hub for student work, homework and classroom resources

Teachers are able to access their classes to set work and share resources. There are a number of other “classrooms” which have also been created, such as tutor groups, year groups and student councils.

Most homework is set on Google Classroom and parents / carers are able to see on a weekly basis what has been set.

The Google Classroom allows you to view:

  • Missing work—work not submitted.
  • Upcoming work—work due today, tomorrow or due in the upcoming week.
  • Class activities—announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.

Students will set up their school google account in year 7 and will be given a school email address. They should speak to their tutor if they are experiencing any problems accessing their account or if they have forgotten their email address or password.

School email address format:

first initial+last name+year of entry to bulmershe @bulmershe.wokingham.sch.uk

Sparx Maths

Sparx Maths homework is personalised so questions are just right for each child's personal ability level, leading to faster progress. Every question contains a short support video to help students answer questions, even when they get stuck. 
Questions are structured to build understanding and are based on what has been taught in class, meaning that homework is achievable. 

Homework is issued on a Wednesday at 11 and is due to be completed by the following Wednesday each week. Any work completed after the 8 days is considered late and will incur a detention (As explained by Mr Hussain in a letter sent 24th April 2024)

Accounts will be set up automatically in school and students.
