Our teachers are;
Mr Coyne is our class teacher, he teaches us for most of the week. Mr Coyne has been teaching for five years - in two different schools - on both occasions in Years 5/6. Sport is Mr Coyne's passion, and during his time at Utkinton we have achieved some outstanding successes on the sports field. Mr Coyne loves having fun, as well as working us hard, but we do feel his jokes could do with some improvement!
Mrs Harris teaches us science and poetry. An experienced Primary School Teacher, who has worked in both deputy and acting head roles at other schools, Mrs Harris dedicates her morning of teaching to allowing us to learn in practical ways. We love her science lessons and learn lots from investigative approaches. She also helps us write amazing poems that we perform at termly church services.
