Welcome to our Year 4 class page.
We are planning to go ahead with our usual parent & teacher meetings to talk about new routines and expectations in class, but with a slightly different format this year to ensure that social distancing can be maintained. Each class will have one day when four meetings will take place to ensure that every family can attend. Places will be limited to one adult per child and younger, pre-school siblings will not be able to attend.
Our class meetings in Year 4 will take place on 23/9/2020 at 9.10 am, 11.00 am and 2.30 pm in the school hall. The fourth meeting will be a video meeting at 6.00 pm using Microsoft Teams (we will send separate information about how to access this). Places in the face to face meetings will be limited to 10 per meeting and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Please reply to this email indicating your first, second and third choices and we will do our best to accommodate everyone.
