Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 

Miss Hagan

Welcome back everyone to the Summer Term.

 

Keep looking on our school Facebook page for information updates, extra ideas and learning opportunities. 

 

It has been lovely to see so many of you completing your work on Seesaw and being able to keep in touch. 

I love getting your messages, seeing your work and all of your photos! 

 

Every day, on Seesaw, you will have an English lesson, a Maths lesson and at least two afternoon activities to complete. This might be a Science, RE, Geography, History, Art, Jigsaw, Computing or Music lesson! Please try and log on to Seesaw everyday (Monday to Friday) to keep up with your learning.

 

If you are having trouble logging onto Seesaw (everyone was given a unique code /QR code before school enclosed with your CGP book pack), ring school who will get a message to me and I'll send you your code as soon as I can.

 

In the mean time, you do have your CGP books you can work through. I would recommend just 2 pages a day of the Maths and the Grammar book (make sure you read the information box at the top of the page before you complete the work as this will help you.) and one comprehension (double page spread) each week. You also have Reading Plus, IXL, Sumdog, PIXL TT and PIXL Vocab you can go on every day.

 

I miss you all so much!

 

Keep in touch & see you all soon,

Miss Hagan
