Google meet will allow all reception children and staff to meet with each other virtually in order to check in and give pupils the opportunity to speak with Miss Giles virtually and to see their friends.

Miss Giles will be in contact via Seesaw once all pupils are set up to let you know the date and time of the google meeting.
