WELCOME TO OUR...

YEAR FIVE

Welcome to Year 5, I am Mr Hin.

During the year we undertake a number of exciting IPC units which cover a broad range of topics such as; the Solar System, Renewable Energy, Living and Growing as well as the Art and History of different.  We will also be exploring where our feelings and emotions come from and how they may affect us.

Our primary aim is to help prepare your child for the challenges and rigours of Year 6 and ensure they make as much progress as possible. This means building on their literacy and numeracy skills. We also believe the key to lifelong learning is nurturing curious minds and encouraging pupils to become more independent.

As teachers, it is our aim to not only to build good relationships with children, but also with parents. With this in mind, we would like to keep you informed and up to date with what is happening.

We hope your child will have a fun and hard-working year with us in 5L,  5U and 5T! Please see our class blogs for more information.

OUR CURRICULUM

As part of our English curriculum we study a range of texts and genres of writing, including Romeo and Juliet and The Highwayman. In Maths lessons we will be learning key skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, angles, fractions, decimals and percentages as well as problem solving and data handing.

All children in Year 5 have a fantastic opportunity to learn how to play an instrument with a Specialist Music Teacher. Pupils can continue this into Year 6.

We hope your child will have a fun and hard-working year with us in 5L and 5U! Please see our class blogs for more information.

OUR TEACHERS

Mr Hin

My name is Mr Hin. I am currently teaching in Year 5 and enjoying it thoroughly.
 
I have been teaching now for 10 years. I enjoy teaching – no two days are ever the same and the children always bring a smile to my face. Previous to this, I worked for HM Revenue & Customs.
 
Any spare time I have, I like to spend with my family and during the warmers months, I also like to do a spot of gardening.
 
I count myself very fortunate to be working in such a lovely school, teaching such well-behaved and enthusiastic children.

Mr Callus

Hello, my name is Mr Callus. I have taught at John Perry for a few years now, gaining experience across a number of year groups. I have thoroughly enjoyed working here and have seen many changes happen within our school; always for the better.

I am very excited about what the future holds for John Perry Primary School as we continuously seek to improve the experiences we provide for the children. I am always overwhelmed by the excitement and enthusiasm that children bring to my classroom and I believe it’s due to the personal relationships we build.

As my classes always know I have a fond passion for Leyton Orient football club. I also love to play football in my spare time, travel and socialise with my family and friends.

Miss Shuffle

My name is Miss Shuffle. This is my first year at John Perry and I am currently teaching in Year 5.

I have been teaching now for 2 years but have been working and volunteering with children and young people for 7 years. I adore teaching, especially at John Perry; children here are passionate, driven and enthusiastic. Previous to this, I worked as a Special Needs Teaching Assistant and retail operator.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. I have been fortunate enough to have some brilliant and inspiring teachers, which is one of the reasons I’ve become a teacher. I love learning and would like to instil that passion in children.

I love working with young people so much, that I spend my summers volunteering with 16-18 year olds participating in team building activities. I enjoy taking part in changing the lives of children and young people because I believe they can change the world and that education is the key to access social mobility.

As Nelson Mandela stated “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

SOME RECENT YEAR FIVE NEWS

Year 5 World Book Day

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. Year 5 had fun learning about different authors and books on that day. Each class completed Reading Rivers that show different types of objects that we read everyday e.g. bus timetables and texts.

“To do good coding and programming we need to be familiar with the keyboard,” (Hannah Jennings, 9 years old, 5L, 2018).

Incorrect way to type.   The correct way to type. Touch typing (also called touch type or touch keyboarding) is typing without using the sense of sight to find the keys. Specifically, a touch typist will know their location on the keyboard through muscle memory. Try it yourself! http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z3c6tfr
