Welcome to Year 5

Continuous Learning - Useful Links

For the start of this year, we will be resuming Continuous Learning at home using the Seesaw Class App. A video guide to this can be found here. You will still get notifications via the Seesaw Family App, however, children will need the Seesaw Class App to upload work and follow teacher instructions. Please email your child’s class teacher with any queries.

Children will receive tasks each day and a morning welcome video posted to their journal. Children will also receive weekly ‘wellbeing possibilities’ – additional tasks and activities that children can choose to complete when or if they have time.

Finally, we will continue to expect children to read for 25 minutes (or more!) each day. In addition to physical books from the TBS library, you can find links to ebooks on the Continuous Learning page of our year group website. In particular, the Oxford Owl link gives free access to Book Band books (sign up required; video guide here).
