Hello.  I am Miss Hoodless and welcome to Year 6.

This is an important transitional year for the children as it is their last year in Primary school before moving into Secondary education. During this year there is a great emphasis on the core areas of learning; Reading, Writing and Mathematics. During the Summer term pupils are formally assessed in these areas (Statutory Assessment Tests).

We hope that your children enjoy Year 6 as much as we do. For more information about your child’s learning and how you can support them refer to our year 6 blogs.

To prepare for Secondary school we create an environment, in which the children are motivated to learn independently. To support this, all children receive a homework diary and are responsible for: writing down their spellings/homework each week and keeping a personal reading record. Parents/guardians should sign the homework diary on a weekly basis and use the diary for regular communication with their child’s class teacher.
In the Summer term the children have the opportunity to be a part of the end-of-year school production. This gives them the chance to showcase their skills in singing, dancing and acting, prop making and set design.
We hope that your children enjoy Year 6 as much as we do. For more information about your child’s learning and how you can support them refer to our year 6 blogs.

Miss Hoodless

My name is Miss Hoodless and I have worked at John Perry for 4 years.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked in year 2, 3 and now I’m enjoying working in year 6. I love working at John Perry as every day is new. The children work hard and enjoy learning which makes the challenges of being a teacher worthwhile.

Outside of school, I enjoy photography, socialising with friends and family and reading.  I have recently discovered how funny David Walliams’ books are!

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 Stratton

Hi, my name is Miss Stratton. I have worked at John Perry for the last four years working across year 3 and year 6.

The reason I moved to John Perry was due to its warm and welcoming nature. Everyday is a new challenge and I enjoy working with children helping them to succeed. I love to be creative in my classroom and always try to create an exciting and enthusiastic environment to learn in. I love the arts, especially music!

In my spare time I love to horse ride, take cooking classes, learn a new language, Play the saxophone, flute and piano and travel.
