Class Four

Catch Up Meeting on Zoom 


Dear Parents/Carers,

We have arranged a short meeting for children in Class Four to have the opportunity to have a quick catch up with their friends and teacher. The meeting will take place at 2pm on Wednesday 8th July. We hope that you will be able to join us. The ID code and password will be sent in a text message to all parents. In order to help safeguard all of the people involved, we ask that all parents make it known to the teacher that they are in the room at the start of the meeting. Parents do not need to remain on camera if they choose not to.


Yours sincerely

Mr Evans

Assistant Headteacher
