4. Choose the type of assignment you wish to set. For Phonics Shed you can choose Game or Book. For Spelling Shed you can choose Spelling Games or SPaG Quiz. For MathShed you can choose Fluency, Quiz or Lesson. For QuizShed you can choose Quiz or Lesson. Then you select the exact task you want to set, e.g., word list, quiz or game. The options can vary depending on the type you select. 






















5. You can select 'limit lists' so the pupils are restricted to only being able to see the assignment until they have played the required amount of games.

       



6. Click save and it will take you to the next screen where you can select which pupils you want to set the assignment for. You can choose your class using the 'group' dropdown.  By clicking on 'Track group' the assignment will be assigned to all the pupils in the group, pupils will be taken out of the assignment if they are taken out of the group or added into the assignment if they are added to the group. You can also select just a 'sub-group' within the group too. 



7. Click the teachers tab, if you would like any partner teachers to be able to view this assignment, click 'add' next to their name.



8. When the pupils log on, they will see the assignments tab at the top of the screen and a number indicating how many assignments they have to complete.
