Welcome to our Year 6 class page.
Parents Day/Evening May 27th 2021
Dear Parents/ Carers,
This year’s parents day/evening will take place on 27th May and will take place on Microsoft Teams, using your child’s account.
To book your place you will need to email your preferred time slot (please see below) to the class email Year6@hollinsgrundy.com. Booking will be on a first come first served basis. Please provide three possible time slots you would prefer, in order of preference. I will let you know your time slot in due course.
Time slot choices:
8.30 – 9.30 9.30 – 10.30 10.30 – 12.00
1.00 – 2.45
4.00 – 5.00 5.00 – 6.30
Each child will be allocated a 10-minute time slot. When logging on to Microsoft teams you will need to join the meeting with your allocated time slot. From here you will be placed in a lobby. When it is time for your meeting you will be admitted by the class teacher. Meetings will last a maximum of 10 minutes to ensure times are kept to. Please make sure you attend your time slot promptly, as we will be unable to admit you at a later time.
If parents need to contact us at all please use the class email Year6@hollinsgrundy.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Kind Regards Mrs Jacques and Mrs Gresty.
