Hello and welcome to 5F.

This year promises to be enjoyable with many interesting things planned. As the children move through the school I like to give them more responsibility and there will be additional opportunities to take care of the outside environment with my Science monitors – gardening and taking care of wildlife areas.

I also like to encourage children to develop skills outside the curriculum and we will be holding a Y5 and 6 recorder club as well as a chess club at lunchtimes. Other children may like to join the choir or the maths club. Not all children want to be outside every lunch time and I feel this gives children a chance to socialise in a different way.

I am looking forward to working with the children in my class to make our year together fun, productive and happy. Our main topic is Britain since the 1930’s with a closer look at WWII and a fantastic trip to Stockport Air Raid Shelters.     Our aim is to have consistently high attendance and I promise that this will be rewarded with further trips or treats, as long as we all put the effort in.

I am always ready to listen to any ideas or any problems the children have and we will work together to share ideas, becoming a really fantastic Year 5 team.

Mrs Coyne
