This year, the boys will be using a very user-friendly story and poetry writing tool - Story Bird.
Each pupil will have their own username and password. All their work will be saved on a 'bookshelf'
The pupils will be able to work on their stories either in school or at home.
Assignments will be set in the assignments section - this way parents can see the instructions that the pupils have been given and they will also know what our expectations are.
The student showcase is a private link that allows parents (or mentors/tutors) to read their child's stories. The parent URL and password are available on the Studio review panel.
1. The parent URL is: https://storybird.com/parents/
2. You will then be asked to input the CLASS PASSWORD (Password: GSTZS) and your son's Storybird username at the prompt.
3. You can then review a showcase of your son's Books and/or Poetry
It's a great way to spend time reading your child's work, discussing his progress, and giving him feedback.
This link gives parents access to their child's work only, and not the class library.
