Dear parents/guardians,

We understand that this is a trying time and we are available and delighted to help you out with any problems that might arise. You can reach us by email or Seesaw. Please feel free to contact us at any stage during normal school hours.

Please note that all work can be written into the boys’ homework copies that were previously sent home.

Don’t write in the Busy at Maths or On the Move books as these are book rental. The boys can write into the Mental Maths book.

Upload work to the Seesaw Class app.

We hope the boys are keeping well and we look forward to seeing them again in the not so distant future.

Keep safe,

Mrs. Browne, Ms. Brennan and Ms. Dempsey.
