Hello and welcome to Primary 5 Cats!
The children have settled in really well to their new class and I am very much enjoying getting to know them all. Primary 5 is a very exciting year and as the children have now moved into KS2, I can see they are ready for the challenge of being in the 'top' end of the school!
I look forward to the year ahead with your children and I hope each and every child has a year filled with lots of learning and fun!
On this page you will find lots of important information about school and what's been going on in your child's class throughout the year.

Dear parents/ Queridos pais/ Drodzy Rodzice
If you have 2 or more children, you will have to log off and then log in on the Seesaw app. Each child has a separate code for the seesaw app. Please keep the codes you have been given for each child safe so you can sign in and out for each child.
This is only the case if you have 2 or more children on Seesaw using the same device.
We are sorry for any inconvenience but each child has a separate account for Seesaw as they have different classes. If you would like another copy of the code please do not hesitate to contact me on email@example.com or your teachers email address is on their webpage.
Se tem um ou mais filhos, tem que sair de uma conta Seesaw para poder entrar em outra. Cada aluno tem o seu proprio codigo para a sua conta Seesaw. Por favor, guarde os codigos que foram atribuidos aos seus filhos cuidadosamente para poder fazer o login e o logout sempre que necessário.
Este caso aplica-se apenas a quem tem mais que um filho a usar o mesmo dispositivo electronico para a Seesaw.
Pedimos desculpas pela incoveniencia mas cada aluno tem o seu proprio codigo de usuário pois estao em classes diferentes. Se necessita de uma outra copia do codigo, nao hesite em pedir-me atraves do email firstname.lastname@example.org ou atraves do email do professor que está disponivel na nossa página online.
Jesli masz 2 lub wiecej dzieci, musisz sie calkowicie wylogowac, a nastepnie ponownie zalogowac w aplikacji Seesaw. Kazde dziecko otrzymalo indywidualny kod do app . Seesaw. Zachowaj kody, ktore otrzymales osobno dla kazdego z dzieci, abys mogl indywidualnie zalogowac i wylogowac kazde z dziecko z osobna.
Informacja ta dotyczy rodzicow w przypadku, gdy masz 2 lub wiecej dzieci w szkole korzystajacych z app.Seesaw z tego samego urządzenia.
Przepraszamy za wszelkie niedogodnosci, ale kazde dziecko ma oddzielne konto na app. Seesaw, poniewaz uczeszczaja do innej klasy.
