St Ambrose Catholic Primary School

Grow through the love of Jesus

Year 5

Hello Year 5,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your families. I'm sure you know by now, you will not all be returning to school on Thursday 7th January as usual, unless you are the child of a Key Worker.

I am sorry I won't be seeing you all for a little longer but urge you all to complete the remote learning I will be putting on here each day. It is important for you to complete this work so you are all up to date. I will be putting on Maths, English, R.E. and at least one other activity to complete, on Seesaw each day.

I hope you and your families are all staying safe and I hope to see you all again soon.

Miss Slack.

Please check Seesaw daily for remote learning!


Don't forget to tune into Joe Wicks each morning for your daily PE session.

Mrs Garratt has the access codes for Seesaw, which have been sent out to parents.
