WELCOME TO OUR...

YEAR FIVE

Hello, and welcome to Year 5. This year we hope to provide the children with an exciting and fun learning experience. Our aim for the children is to develop their independence while continuing to build upon their previous learning. We understand that every child is different and we always set high expectations to allow the children to reach their potential.

We hope your child enjoys Year 5 as much as we will. For more information, please look at our Year 5 blog.

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school, and will be available to answer any questions or queries. If you wish to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss anything further, please contact the school office.

OUR CURRICULUM

At Park Hill Primary School, we are passionate about the curriculum and always plan imaginative and creative lessons, with the children at the centre of every decision we make. We want the best for our children, and ensure all lessons are suitably supportive and challenging for all individuals and their needs.

We like the children to be responsible for their own learning, and support them to choose work that will challenge their understanding and extend their knowledge.

Please find our curriculum jigsaw here to see what topics we will cover over the Autumn term. Autumn Term 1

OUR TEACHERS

Mrs Parashar

Hi, my name is Mrs Parashar.  I have been teaching for 18 years, and have been at Park Hill for 9. It has been wonderful to have been part of the Park Hill community for so long and to have seen so many families go through the school. I am currently working part time and am in school Mondays to Wednesdays, spending the rest of my time looking after my three young children.

I love teaching Year 5 as it is an age where children flourish and engage with their learning.  I’m really looking forward to the coming year and working with the children on some exciting projects.

Mrs Mercer

My name is Mrs Mercer and I am teaching in Year 5 this year on a part-time basis, with Mrs Parashar. I have many years of teaching experience across all key stages including Early Years. I am really looking forward to being back in Upper phase this year and working with all of your children!

Karen Dodd

Hello my name is Mrs Dodd

I am a very experienced key stage two teacher and leader. I have worked with Coventry Education Authority for a number of years, enthusing learning and helping to develop other teachers. I love my job – it’s the best job in the world.

I joined the Park Hill team in January 2018 as a Year 5 teacher.  I am really looking forward to working with 5V this year. The school is a great place to be and every day is different.

I want to make the learning interesting and to inspire the children to want to be good learners. I look forward to working in partnership with you all.
