Is Espresso asking you for log in details?

Some teachers will be posting links to Espresso resources using Google Classroom. If Espresso asks you for a username and password then you will need to do the following.

1) Click on the Espresso link on the Wonde Dashboard. This will log you into Espresso automatically. You may need to click on one of 3 options. Make sure you click on Espresso rather than Espresso coding. Once you see the Espresso home page you will need to leave this tab open.
2) Go back to the Wonde Dashboard and click on Classroom.
3) Click on the Espresso link in Google Classroom and it should load up the correct page in Espresso and log you in automatically.

 

Incognito Mode / Private browsing

If you are struggling to access Google Classroom using the Wonde login then it might be because your computer / tablet / phone has a personal Google account attached to it. If this is the case you will need to use an incognito window (Google Chrome) or in private browsing (Ipad). Once you have one of those windows loaded up you will be able to log in to Wonde and Google Classroom using the https://edu.wonde.com/login/exwick link. Instructions on how to do this for various browsers are below. Please see alternative blog post if you are using a Chromebook.

Google Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95464?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

Ipad or Iphone: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT203036

  4. Enter the emoji password

Flotsam and Jetsam!

What a busy and inspiring week it has been in Year 2! Following World Book Day, the children have been sharing lots of stories within class. On Wednesday, the children were able to meet and listen to Tanya Landman, a local author, who told them the tale of “The Fisherman and His Wife”. Every child was mesmerised and really enjoyed the story. We also learned about two characters that she had invented – Flotsam and Jetsam. Some children had a go at drawing them, based on the description in Tanya’s book.

Thank you for all of your Sport Relief donations – the children all looked great in their sporty gear and have had the chance to ‘be sporty’ in the MUGA today. Have a great weekend!
