Update: 23.6.20

Hello to all Year 5 pupils from Mrs Beswick and Mrs Coyne!

Hi strangers! I cannot believe how long it has been since you were in school. It has been really strange without you and although I have spoken to some of you on the telephone, and seen one or two in school picking up work etc. it just isn’t the same is it?

We have put together 2 new packs for those of you who are not coming to school from the 29th. One is a maths pack, and one is for English. These are available in the reception area in school.These packs are designed to use over a few weeks and should be plenty for you to be doing in addition to your Times Table Rockstars and Mathletics and Espresso work. You are also able to bring back your reading books and pick up new ones if you have nothing to read at home. Someone asked what you could be doing for work other than maths/English. This is when the BBC Bitesize lessons or Espresso is such a good resource as you can tackle work on all areas of the curriculum. So have a look!

I hope you are still keeping active and fit as well as doing some learning.   It has been excellent weather for getting out, walking, playing games and riding bikes.  So keep moving!    Now it is a little safer for you to meet up with friends/relatives, so this will be nice for you.  But always follow the distancing guidelines please. 

Lots of love and best wishes from Mrs Beswick and Mrs Coyne.

Hi Year Five!

I hope you are all still being good and staying safe. I bet some of you have been thinking of new ways to keep fit! In my house we have a rowing machine and I do some of the keep fit videos on TV. The problem is, we have a new puppy.  Anytime I am doing exercises on the mat on the floor,  she jumps on me! 

We are going for walks every day and also having bike rides.  (Yes I can ride a bike!) Mrs Coyne has been making her garden nice by painting some new garden benches. She has lots and lots of stairs in her house, so I think she is super fit going up and down these!

It has been a long time now hasn’t it? I have enjoyed phoning all of you up to check you are OK. I have been able to speak with your parents and some of you too. It makes us happy to know you are being well looked after and are managing to do some school work so it won’t be too much of a shock when you finally come back to school.

We have put another Y5 pack in the office if you have run out of things. Some parents have asked for more spelling books as these have been filled up. So I have put some of these in the Y5 box too.   You can return you reading books for a new one at the same time.

Please keep safe and happy.   We will get through this by taking care of each other.

Love from Mrs Beswick and Mrs Coyne

Dear Year Fives (and parents!)

We hope you are all well and are making sure you are helping at home. Don’t stay on your computer games and Youtube all day! Have you tried BBC Bitesize yet?  There are loads of lessons for Primary children and some have been recorded by celebrities!

There is quite a list now of activities you can try on the Year 5 homework pages.  However, if your parents would like you to have any more work packs,  there are maths and English packs available for collection in the school office.   Please ring school before coming to collect.

We are missing you all so much.  Please stay safe and hopefully we will all see each other before too long.

Love from Mrs Coyne and Mrs Beswick

Hello again,

Just thought I would send you another little message. I hope you are all still keeping safe and healthy. It’s hard to believe that it’s now two weeks since you were in school.

Remember that I suggested that we start our own reading challenge? Well I think I’ve lost already. I had been waiting to read a book by one of my favourite authors and thought now would be a good time to start it, it has 880 pages!!! I am up to page 114, so I think that it might take me a while and you will all whizz through yours.

Try having a go at doing something different while you are at home, I have a Lego figure to make that was a birthday present. It’s only small but will probably be quite fiddly. I’ll take a picture of it when I have finished it so that you can see it.

I have been on the internet this morning and looked at these web sites where there are interactive activities about Easter, I thought some of the activities looked like fun.

Don’t forget to keep checking the homework page as Mrs Beswick and I will be updating it to make sure that you are all kept busy.

Have a lovely weekend. I’ll be in touch again next week.

Love from,

Mrs Coyne



Hi 5C, this is Mrs. Coyne.

See, you can’t escape me even when you are not in school!

I miss you all very much, being at home is so quiet compared to being in our classroom listening to you chattering and laughing and making each day special. (Bet you never thought I’d say that when I’m usually telling you to try to speak quietly!)

I hope that you have all started to work on your packs and are using the websites that you have access to so that you can continue with your learning. Just remember that you don’t need to complete all the activities at once.

Think about other activities that you could be doing at home. Although I have work to do for school as well, I have decided to try to read all those books that I have on my bookcase that I haven’t managed to read yet. We could have a little competition to see who reads the most while we are at home. Think about it, it could be our version of the reading challenge that you take part in during the summer, with prizes at the end when we return to school.

I managed to hang all of your toucans from the beam in our room and they look fantastic. When they have been photographed, I will put them on our class work page so that you can all see them, they really look like they are flying.

Keep checking the homework page for updates on websites that you can use, don’t forget you can access Top Marks from at home.

I hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. I’ll send you another message next week.

Be Good.

Love from Mrs Coyne x
