Year 5 Children's Report Comments


Dear Parents/Carers,
Please help your child to complete the Pupil Report Comments template below. They can chose to either type or hand write their reflections on the year. If they chose to hand write their ideas, please either scan the finished document or take a photograph. Completed templates should be sent by email to your child's teacher by Monday 20th July. This copy will be added to the teacher written report and kept for our own records. You are invited to keep your original copy as a record of your child's view of their school year and can add this to their teacher report, once received. We look forward to receiving their thoughts as they look back on 2019/2020.

New Class Teacher Video clips

By now, you should know who your new Class Teacher is going to be next year. We have all recorded a video message for our new classes and uploaded them onto seesaw. If you haven't seen the video clip from your new Class Teacher, have a look on seesaw under the inbox tab. 

If you can't find your video clip, please email your current class teacher who can help you navigate around the inbox and messages area of seesaw.

FOT have sent a parent mail with details of how to order a copy of the class artwork. If you would like to purchase a copy and have not received any information about this, please contact the school office. Many thanks. 

The deadline for orders is Sunday 12th July at 6pm.

Activity clubs.

For those of you who are missing their clubs and activities, check out Oak National Academy clubs. There are new activities every week or you can browse previous club activities. There are cook-alongs, art club, debating club and activities from The Scout Association.

Some activities are designed for certain year groups and some are for all. To access the activities you can either browse all clubs below, or see what's on this week.


Well done to everyone who has logged on to Seesaw and uploaded some of their pieces of work. It has been great to see so many of your home learning tasks. Remember, any form of learning that you have been doing can be shared, it does not just have to be the tasks set on the class page.

If you haven't managed to log on yet, please do so. 

We MUST see a minimum of two posts each week, please.  

If you are having trouble logging in or have lost your log in details (sent via email to parents) please let your class teacher know so we can contact the office and have these resent.
