Y5 – Shakespeare Class
Hello and welcome to the Year 5 Shakespeare Class page
Hello and welcome to the Year 5 Shakespeare Class page!
This year, myself (Mr Léoddi) and Miss Burrows are looking forward to working with the Year 5 class. We will be covering some exciting projects that I hope will be enjoyed by everyone.
The new curriculum being introduced at John Burns encompasses the ‘3Ps’: Point, Place, 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 favourite 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!
It has always been my goal was to work with children in educational settings. After moving from France to the UK in 2010, I started studying education at the UCL-Institute of Education in London. I then worked in private nurseries and as a teaching assistant in numerous primary schools across London.
Soon after, I undertook my PGCE (teacher training) here in London. I trained in Year 5 for my second placement, which is why I am really excited to be teaching this year group!
If you have any queries, concerns or suggestions for your child, please feel free to either catch me after school, or book an appointment with the office to see me during the week. I would be happy to chat with you and give any reassurance about your child’s settling in.
