Send a gmail to a friend including three things you appreciate about them or what you have missed about hanging out with them. You can log into gmail using three letters of your first name and surname, followed by @standrewswey.co.uk. So for example John Smith would be email@example.com. Your password will be your TTrockstars password repeated three times - so if yours was qwe, you would input qweqweqwe. To mail a classmate, use the same format to write their email address.
REMEMBER all emails should be positive and thoughtful; a copy of all pupil emails is sent to an e-safety account which is only opened if concerns are raised about cyber bullying or other inappropriate use.
You can these accounts to log into chromebooks in school next term, so feel free to explore your account with your family!
Have a look at this website for loads of ideas!
