SomeHello to everyone in Second Class, I hope you are all keeping well and working hard at home. I hope you all enjoyed your virtual school tour and sports day. I have set up the seesaw app on my phone. It is very easy to use and I think it is a quicker way of uploading work; many of the children will enjoy uploading it themselves. I hope you all like it and I’ll look forward to seeing your work on the app this week. You can also contact me by email if you wish at Katrinacumiskey@gmail.com
