Y5 – Shakespeare Class
Hello and welcome to the Year 5 Shakespeare Class page
This year myself (Miss Williams) and Mrs Swaby are looking forward to working with the Year 5 class, covering some very interesting exciting projects that I hope will be enjoyed by all.
The new curriculum being introduced at John Burns encompasses the ‘3Ps’: Point, Place and Person. This focusses our topic learning and allows us to delve deep into the history and geography of that time.
This year will start with my favorite topic ‘Under the Chimneys’. This is a local history study about the area we live in, including the significant Battersea Power Station and how Battersea has changed over time due to human and geographic impacts. I hope that my new Year 5 class enjoy this as much as last year's.
If you or a member of your family have any expertise or resources on any of the topics we cover this year that you would be willing to share, we would love to hear from you!
I went to the University of Nottingham to study Zoology, fulfilling my passion for science and animals.
I undertook my PGCE in Reading where I taught in a variety of schools.
I have recently moved to London from Bath and am very excited to start my second year working at John Burns Primary School with Year 5.
If you have any concerns or suggestions, please either catch me at the end of the day. Alternatively, you can make an appointment with the school office to see me.
