Year 5 Seesaw announcement

Important Information for Parents/Carers

Learning activities will be published on Seesaw daily from Monday 20th April (when school term time begins). It is an expectation that children complete as much of this learning as possible.

Please watch this video for information about home learning:

A suggested timetable is attached to help you and your child create effective and manageable routines. Please also note that activities will be posted throughout the day, not all at once.

We thank you all for your continuing support during this challenging time.

Parents of children in Years 1 – 5, please check your emails (including your spam folders) for an invite to sign up to Seesaw, the digital learning platform we will be using after Easter.

Thank you to those who have already completed the consent form and assisted their child in signing in for the first time. Be sure to have a good look around the website to familiarise yourselves!

Poetry challenge

Poetry challenge

Write a poem where each line starts with a letter from your first name (an acrostic). It can be about anything, but it should not be about you or your name.

When we are free

When we are free,  

In the weeks or months to come,

Look forward to hugging friends

Laugh and play together.

In spite of everything,

After all of this

Maybe life will be even better.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Year 5 pupils now have access to Times Tables Rock Stars to help with home learning.

To log in, open the website and select the ‘Student’ tab.

Each pupil’s username is their the initial of their first name, next to their full surname. All lowercase, no spaces. (e.g. Joe Bloggs would be: jbloggs). All passwords are currently set to: rocks

During the first sign-in, the website will prompt children to create a rock avatar, which will be how they appear to others.

All games support times tables development and are monitored by class teachers.
