Year 5 Online Learning

Hello everyone and many thanks for sharing all your fantastic activities on Seesaw and by email. I have really enjoyed seeing them all. It would be lovely for you and your child to continue to post your activities on either of these platforms.

I have set some new activities for the week but please rest assured that these are just suggestions and not compulsory! I hope they give you a starting point.  Feel free to tailor them to your child’s needs or interests, and to complete as many as you wish.  Home learning should be fun! Follow this timetable if you find it useful to have structure:
