Hi there!

Sycamore Zoom Meeting 

Hi everyone, I am excited to tell you that you are all invited to a class Zoom meeting on Thursday at 11am. I hope that you will be able to join us. I have sent a message to your parents via ParentApp which they should have received. Please email me if you haven’t got it. I will send out the link to the meeting a few minutes before on ParentApp.

For this first meeting it would be great if you could be ready to share the best thing you have done in lockdown. I will have to limit you to possibly about a minute each to allow everyone to have a go, depending on how many of you can make the meeting. If you just want to join the meeting and listen to others, that’s fine.

If this time isn’t convenient for you, don’t worry I will be doing more!

Look forward to seeing you all!
