Dosbarth 5 - Mrs Jones

Year 6 Prom Night - Tuesday 6th July

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I haven't written on this page for a while but things have got busy at Coychurch. I have been delighted to see so much lovely work being done in class with Mrs Griffiths. I look forward to seeing your completed projects about the Welsh Mining Industry at the end of this week. The displays in class are also taking shape. We have a fun day to look forward to on Friday when we do our 'Race for Life'. We already have over £400 in donations even before the event-what a great response. Don't forget to wear pink or blue or a combination on that day!! Best wishes Mrs Jones

Hello Everyone,

I hope you have all had a lovely holiday with lots of family time and fresh air and fun. We have been fortunate to have had sunny weather, even if it has been a bit cold on occasions. Our Chiminea has been used out side in our garden more than ever before and we have made use of woolly hats and cosy blankets. I have been for lots of long walks as usual enjoying the West Wales countryside around us.

I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. We have lots of interesting activities and lessons planned for this term. Our theme is Planet Earth-Exploring the Environment of our Wonderful World! Lots to get our heads around there. We have already had brilliant ideas of things to find out about from the pupils and no doubt there will be plenty more to come.

Best wishes from Mrs Jones

Class 5 - Summer Term Overview

Hello Everyone,

What a joy it has been to have the school full again. Well done class 5 for a lovely week. It has been great to see you all chatting and playing with your friends again. You have settled back in really well. I am impressed with the way you have adapted yet again to the change. It is as if you have been here all along! Although by the end of the week, there were a few tired faces from pupils and staff!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Enjoy the rugby if you are a fan of that! Enjoy fresh air and family time. Stay safe and well.

Best wishes Mrs Jones smiley

Hello everyone, 

Hope you are all ok. We are really looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. It will be amazing to have all our classes back full time again. Hope you have all enjoyed Mother’s Day and been extra kind and helpful to your mums. I have had lovely cards, messages and presents from my children and grandchildren and virtual conversations. I do hope we will all be able to meet together properly soon. This lockdown has been hard for everyone young and old alike. No doubt some of you will feel a little nervous about returning to school after a long time away. Please don’t be anxious, it will be so good to see your friends again, and the staff are very excited to see you all.

Hwyl fawr! 
best wishes Mrs Jones πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

 

Hello Class 5

Hope you have all had a relaxing weekend. There are lots of exciting activities set for this week again, including more Forest Schools activities, International Women's Day and Commonwealth Day. Many thanks for all the fantastic work being submitted and for your continued engagement on Teams Calls. We really look forward to welcoming you all back to school on Monday March 15th. It will be so lovely to see you all. Keep safe and well. Best wishes Mrs Jones

Hello Everyone,

Hope you have been enjoying the early Spring sunshine this weekend. Thank you for all your hard work again last week. I especially enjoyed hearing your stories about the wasp and the hair 'jelly'!! A big thank you to Mr Joy for working with class 5 over the past few weeks. We are sorry to have to say 'Goodbye' but wish him well in his new venture. I am pleased to welcome Mrs Griffiths who will be taking over in Class 5. Most of you know Mrs Griffiths and I know Class 5 will again be in good hands and we will all work together to ensure you all have quality teaching and learning experiences. Tomorrow we will celebrate Dydd Gwyl Dewi (St David's Day). I look forward to seeing Welsh Rugby shirts, daffodils etc when we meet on Teams tomorrow morning. Stay safe and well.

Best wishes Mrs Jonessmiley

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are having a great half term and enjoying some relaxation and down time with your families. I have managed a run and some walks along the coast path near where I live-in between the showers mostly!! I've also enjoyed baking and time to play the piano!

We will continue with our Online/Blended Learning approach in KS2 until we have further directives from the Welsh Government, although, as most of you are aware, we are due to wlecome back Foundation Phase to onsite provision after half term. Our Microsoft Class team meetings are due to restart each day but at the slightly earlier time of 9.15 am.

As you can see Mr Joy has uploaded the planning and resources for after half term. It looks really interesting-a chance for you to find out a bit more about castles in Wales and some work on a flashback story in literacy. We are also looking forward to celebrating St David's Day the following week, albeit virtually! At the moment Wales is doing a good job in the Rugby Six Nations smiley but I must admit it has been a bit tense watching it!!  Enjoy the rest of half term-Best wishes Mrs Jones smiley

Hello Everyone, 

Thank you again for all your hard work and interesting interactive lessons/catch up chats with you on Teams. This week has been very creative with lots of interesting things done with ripped paper and a range of different materials. You have begun to learn a bit of French-I hope you enjoyed learning this and trying it out as much as I enjoyed teaching it!! I can't wait to go back for a trip to France again to enjoy that lovely country. You are doing well with the Welsh too -Da iawn pawb. We are also enjoying the outdoors with the improving weather and lighter evenings. I hope you enjoy the 'Forest Schools' activties. It is great to have Mr Joy on board with us also. Keep safe & have a great weekend.

Best wishes from Mrs Jonessmiley

 

 

May I also add how it has been so wonderful to speak to most of you this week and see the fantastic work everyone is getting on with, you have on come on so far from when I last worked with you. Keep up the amazing work! The Spring Forward forest schools PowerPoint is now with the resources for next week so you can have a go at those creative tasks. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and I look forward to working with you all more next week. Mr Joy smiley

Hello Everyone,

Another crazy week has come & gone. Hope you all had fun Bird Watching and with St Dwynwen's Day activities and the Railway  adventures. Many of you had fun playing in the snow -no snow at Burry Port but I can't complain as I have the sea and sand and beautiful countryside to enjoy! Thanks for all your fantastic work again this week. I was so moved by your diary entries and the craft work was amazing. I know some of you had a few difficulties with Prime numbers and Square numbers but we will go over that again on Monday. Please don't worry if you are stuck-Mrs Davies and I are always around during school hours to help you.

Fantastic news-Mr Joy is coming to join our class to help us out!! I am so excited about this and look forward to seeing him on our Class Teams Meeting on Monday and he will be joining the staff rota in the school hub. Croeso Mr Joy smiley.

Stay safe all of you and enjoy your weekend.

Best wishes Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5,

Well another busy week has gone by quickly. We have explored the theme of Autumn and Harvest through looking at a variety of leaves and using them to create artwork of prints and observational drawings. In our mindfulness activities we have thought about the meaning of reflections both in the beauty of the reflections in the natural world, looking at ourselves in the mirror and also in the sense of taking a moment to appreciate what we have- and despite the gloom associated with Covid 19, lockdown and restrictions to our lives, we concluded that there is still much to be thankful for! See the taster pictures below! Enjoy your weekend! Best wishes Mrs Jones.

Hello Class 5

Hope you have enjoyed the week with lots of interesting activities.

Just a quick reminder-next week is Bike to School week so get on those bikes and scooters or walk to school if you can! It is better for the environment and for your health!

We are continuing to explore our bodies and there will be a task that you can do at home as well as in school-prepare a Powerpoint or video talk about a specific organ or main part of the body. Our art this week will focus on mandala art. I am also uploading my planning for your information.

Have a great weekend -best wishes Mrs Jones

Class 5 enjoyed creating a human model of the circulatory system outdoors in the sunshine as part of their work about body systems!

Hello Class 5,

Welcome back! It has been so lovely to meet my new class this week. We have had a fantastic start and I am sure I am going to enjoy working with all of you, helping you and learning alongside you all as we encourage each other during these complex times. 

Our classroom is familiar, yet different, as we try to keep ourselves safe at this time. Routines have to be adapted such as different entrances for each class or bubble and a slightly modified timetable. I am so pleased with the way you are all engaging with the 'new normal' and already I have been impressed with the work you have produced in just a few days. A brilliant start Class 5-well done! If parents have any queries, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment to speak to me or see me (socially distanced), or if it is quite straightforward you are welcome to email me on jonesc555@hwbcymru.net 

I am also uploading the parent letter and overview for this term.

Best wishes from Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5

As we close school today for the Summer, I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you all for the amazing way you have engaged with home learning and been resilient and rescourceful during the last 4 months. It has been encouraging for me as your class teacher to see the way in which you have tackled  online lessons with independence and creativity. I have really enjoyed seeing the majority of you face-to-face during the catch up sessions this last few weeks and I look forward to starting the 'new normal' back at school with you all in September. I wish the Year 6 leavers all the best for your future educational journeys and the fantastic lives you have ahead of you. Always remember to work hard, be kind and respectful, and persevere when things get tough! Be true to yourselves and believe that you can do great things. Know that I really believe in each and every one of you! 

A special thank you to all parents for your brilliant support this year. I wish all class 5 and your families a very happy, safe and healthy Summer.

Best wishes

Hello Class 5,

We've nearly made it to the end of another year!! What a year it has been!! Lots of different things to get used to-homelearning, lockdown, social distancing to name but a few. We have had to get used to a whole new way of living our lives and new vocabulary to learn which has come about because of the Global Pandemic. However, there have been many positives e.g. more time spent with our immediate family, more free time, improved IT skills, good effects on the environment and wildlife. I have enjoyed seeing many of you this last few weeks in our 'Catch up' sessions at Coychurch. I also look forward to our last week of term and celebrating with Y6 all their achievements and memories of their time at Coychurch. Best wishes to everyone for the week ahead from Mrs Jones.smiley

Hello Everyone,

We have had a lovely week seeing some of you actually back in school for the first time in a long while. I couldn't believe the rain on our first 'Bubble Day' after all the beautiful dry weather and sunshine we have been having. But we were undaunted and still managed a lot of outside activities including a fun treasure hunt, even if the paper got soggy and we ended up with wet feet!

I am looking forward to seeing the 'Year 5 Bubble' next week.

Best wishes & stay safe and well! Mrs Jones

Year 6 Catch up Fun! Lovely to see so many!

Hello Class 5,

Bore da! Well another busy week has gone by! We have enjoyed being back in Coychurch this week with Key Worker children and it has gone well. The school looks lovely with our social distancing hearts and other signs and we have spaced out the classrooms ready for next week. I do hope we will be able to use the outdoor areas as much as possible and we hope for lovely dry weather, not too hot or cold!! I am excited and really look forward to seeing those who are able to be in school in reality, Y6 next week and Y5 the following week. It will be fun to catch up!smiley  We will meet you at Meadow Close entrance where there is a one way system marked out. Please only bring water bottle, sunhat/waterproof coat (depending on weather), snack and packed lunch if you are not having school lunch.

No bags or books are required.

Have a great weekend-Hwyl Fawr-best wishes Mrs Jonessmiley

Picture News - Pocket Money

Hello Class 5,

Another week has gone by really quickly! Thanks for all the lovely work again. We have done our last week at Pencoed Hub and everything is moving back to Coychurch on Monday. We will have only Key worker children next week, but from June 29th we will be welcoming you all in small groups or 'Bubbles'. Your parents will get letters shortly to explain how it will work. We are still just waiting for an update from Welsh Government and BCBC. I really look forward to seeing you again. Enjoy the weekend. Best wishes Mrs Jones.

Certificates for taking part in the Cardiff City (Bluebirds) Home Learning

Hello Class 5

Hope you have all enjoyed this week of family time and homelearning. The afternoon tea idea seems to have been a great success with many of you. I have included another cooking idea for the coming week! I am making Spaghetti Bolognese this evening-really looking forward to it! Thanks for all your fabulous work. Please keep it coming. We will be moving into a 'blended learning' approach (new buzz word!!!) shortly from June 29th onwards. This means there will be an opportunity for you all to come to school for a limited number of days during the last few weeks of term but also the home distance learning will continue. The school based learning will be in 'bubbles' of groups of children with not everyone in at the same time.  But we are doing our best to make it work well for children, their families and staff, bearing in mind the constraints of Welsh Government Guidance! Sorry this is still vague but we will let you know as soon as we know more concrete plans. As you can imagine, we are working hard to figure it all out! Have a great weekend. Best wishes Mrs Jonessmiley

 

 

Hello again Class 5,

Hope you have had a good week. I have received some excellent project work from many of you- thank you so much-I have really enjoyed learning about the different countries you have chosen. If you haven't sent in your work yet, I will still be pleased to see it. 

I am in the middle of writing reports and preparing with Mrs Hurry and the other staff to open the school back up in some shape or form at the end of this month. We don't know exactly how this will look yet but it will be lovely to see you again. We will keep you updated when we know more. Meanwhile keep up the excellent home learning and get in contact if you have any queries. Best wishes Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5, I thought I'd share some pictures from my half term! I have really enjoyed the beautiful weather. Hope you are all well and have had fun this week. Love from Mrs Jones.

Hello Class 5,

Thank you so much for all the fantastic work you have sent me over the last few months. I have especially enjoyed hearing about your science experiments, the exciting project work that is coming in and also the efforts many of you have made in learning new ways of communicating through Sway, Adobe Sparks, collaborative Powerpoints, Forms questionnaires and so on! Together we have learnt so much during this lockdown. Our computer skills have improved no end and also I believe many of you have enjoyed more quality family time, the chance to enjoy the outdoors, exercise more and learn important life skills like how to cook, wash up and do the washing!! Please take a well-earned break for half term from lessons and we will resume after half term.

Keep safe and well. Love from Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5,

Hope you are all doing OK. As you can see next week's planning has been uploaded to this website and I have also sent it to you on email. Keep the lovely work coming. I am enjoying seeing it and I am very pleased that you all seem to be thriving and getting on so well. It is especially encouraging to see how much the IT skills are developing-yours and mine!! This week I am trying out Adobe Sparks! It is an app on Hwb and I have started to create a class webpage that you can all add to. It is in the planning-do check it out. I am looking forward to what we can all do collaboratively!! Have a great week.

Best wishes Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5

I can't believe how fast this week has gone. Tomorrow is VE Day Bank Holiday! I hope you have your Red, White & Blue outfits and decorations ready!! I know many of you have organised 'virtual street parties' and other celebrations. Have a wonderful time! I have emailed you the planning for next week & it will also appear on this website. Please get in contact if you have any queries. I know lots of you are looking forward to seeing your friends again properly but for now let us make the most of the ways we can all communicate via the internet. I am always pleased to hear from you & to know what you have been doing. Best wishes Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5 -hope you are all safe & well. Happy May Day! It’s lovely to see the sun shining again! I expect we needed some rain to water the gardens though! Here are a few pictures that have made me happy during the last little while so I thought I’d share them with you. Planning for next week has been emailed to you and will appear on this website shortly. Have a brilliant week! Keep smiling-love from Mrs Jones πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸŒˆπŸŒΌ

Hello Class 5,

Hpe you have all had a great week and you are looking forward to an enjoyable weekend. Thanks for all the lovely work you have been sending me in various ways, including video, photos, uploaded work etc. The planning for the coming week has been emailed to you all as well as the questionnaire and project guidance for this term. They are also being uploaded to the school website. Hope you find it interesting.

Keep safe & well & enjoy the sunshine.

Love from Mrs Jones

Hello Class 5 

Hope you have all had fun during the 2 weeks for  Easter Holidays. Fortunately we have had amazing sunny weather and hopefully everyone will have been able to get out for some fresh air and exercise, despite the lockdown! I hope you and your families are all well.

On Monday, we are officially back into term time. We still have no way of knowing how long this strange situation will last, but we all need to make the best of our individual circumstances, help and support one another and be grateful for the little things! 

Below on this website page is the plan for the first week of the Summer Term to ease you back into some sort of pattern for keeping up with your learning. I will be able to respond to emails via hwb from pupils or parents, and will be able to offer support and advice to help with aspects of learning or physical or emotional wellbeing. 

I will also be spending some time as in previous weeks at the Pencoed Hub, together with colleagues from our own school and other schools, as we seek to provide care for children of key workers. 

I look forward to hearing news from you all. Keep safe & well. Best wishes from Mrs JonesπŸ˜ŠπŸ‘β˜€οΈ

Hello Class 5 

Message from Mrs Jones!

Hope you are all safe & well! Hope you have enjoyed the first couple of weeks of new style school. It has been great to hear from you about your creative ways of keeping occupied and to see some of the lovely work you have been doing. I have emailed you some extra fun activities for the holidays and these will be posted on this website also.

 

Our theme for next term is ‘All about our World’ a humanities based topic about Bringing Down the Borders e.g. learning about different cultures & countries & people and movements which have helped to make the world a more caring and just place. I would welcome any ideas you children and parents have in relation to this topic!

 

During the holidays we will not be providing planned work and will limit the correspondence to urgent matters only, but please get in touch if you need any emergency help.

Thank you for all being amazing- Pasg Hapus -Happy Easter to you all!!!

Hi Everyone,

We are half way through week 1 of a new way of doing 'School'. Hope you are all adjusting to the new routines -parents and children!! Please try to get as much fresh air and exercise as possible-be inventive!!! Spend quality time together when you can and try to have regular meals and a good sleep each night.

 

I hope the work is proving ok so far. We have been advised to not 'overdo' schoolwork while everyone is settling into the new lifestyle but there is plenty of extra stuff on all the websites. I am trying to develop the functions of Class 5 team so please try it out and let me know. You should be able to upload photos/work onto your file in Classroom notebook on our class team. Any issues with passwords or logins I can sort out remotely.

Please contact me via hwb email if you need me.  jonesc555@hwbcymru.net

 

Please try & message your friends and family in whatever ways you can to stay connected but also stay at home as directed. I am thinking of you all. Love & prayers Mrs Jones

COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Due to the current situation around COVID-19 pupils may be working some of the next term remotely.  In order to help parents and children with this we will be setting tasks to complete on their online platforms (such as Hwb and Purple Mash) and also sending some work home in a Home Learning Book.  Unfortunately we do not have the resources available at school to print out all of the work for every pupil in the school, so we will also be uploading some tasks and work to class pages.  Parents are not necessarily required to print all of this work at home, but if you can help your child read the work on the computer, they can write the answers or complete the tasks in their Home Learning Book.  Could you please ensure that anything printed off, or completed on separate sheets of paper, is stuck into their books.

 

We absolutely appreciate that this is going to be a difficult time for everyone, and will support parents and children as best we can remotely.  If you require further clarification about tasks set, pupils can email their class teacher using their Hwb email addresses.  We politely request that these email addresses are not used for any other reason, we will however be monitoring our admin.coychurch@bridgend.gov.uk email address to deal with any important enquiries.

Hello Class 5 smiley

Hope you are all well. We have posted here the suggested home learning activities for next week. This is a new thing for all of us. Please do not get anxious or stressed about any of it and if your parents need to find out further information or need to clarify anything please do not hesitate to email me.

 

It is important for the first few weeks to settle together at home with this new situation and get into some sort of routine so do not be worried about getting everything done. Your health & well-being are my main priority. Many of the suggested activities are designed to be fun and done together!!

 

I will be thinking of all of you & your families.

Best wishes

Mrs Jones

Please find below a suggested daily routine, as requested by parents.  Of course this will need to modified to suit your own children and circumstances, but we hope it will help as a starting point.

It was great to welcome the class 5 pupils back to school today. The Christmas holidays seem to have flown by! 

We have lots of exciting learning experiences in store for this term. Our theme is "To infinity and beyond-Earth and Space!" We hope to arrange a visit to Techniquest and we will explore the concepts of space exploration, the relationships of the planets in our Solar System, relative sizes and distances from each other, space links to Wales and a whole range of other things. We will of course be celebrating our Welsh identity and culture as St David's Day approaches and the Eisteddfod is a highlight of this term. Finally the term will be rounded off with celebrations of Easter.

I will be posting the Theme Overview, the oracy homework and this term's project homework directly after this for your information. I wish you all a very Happy & Healthy New Year and look forward to working together again. If you have any queries, please contact me.

I have just had the pleasure of reading the projects about the 20th Century completed by Class 5 and I would like to congratulate the pupils on the excellent standard of work. I am very impressed by the research and IT presentation skills. I have been entertained and informed, gained a lot of knowledge and found out some fascinating facts.

Thank you Class 5 for all your efforts and thanks to parents and grandparents for your support in this work. I hope you all enjoyed the learning experience.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to Class 5 for the Autumn term 2019. It is lovely to see pupils who were with me last year again, and to welcome the new Y5 pupils. We have enjoyed a very busy start to the term and have a lot of things to look forward to as we make progress together along our learning journey.

Our topic this term is Time Travellers-20th Century with a particular emphasis on WW2. We have arranged a visit to the WW2 museum in Swansea Bay and other workshops to take place in school. We are excited to learn more!

Please see also on our class page the overview for parents and the homework activities. Any queries about any aspect of life in Class 5, please contact me.

Best wishes Mrs C Jones (Deputy Head/Class 5 Teacher)
