Miss Davenport

Meet your teacher

Hi, I’m Miss Davenport and I’m going to be your teacher next year.

I am so excited to be able to welcome you to class5LD. Together, we will learn so many interesting facts throughout our journey in year 5. I can’t wait for all of the amazing memories that we are going to make. It’s going to be an exciting year!

This is my second year teaching at Aston Hall Junior & Infant School. I am looking forward to being a part of your learning and school life this year. If you work hard, I’m sure we will have lots of fun! I have worked within school settings for 9 years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I really love teaching and I believe working with children Isa privilege.

When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Also, I enjoy playing football and watching my favourite team, Sheffield Wednesday! I love travelling and exploring different cultures, having previously lived in New Zealand and Australia for 2 years! Enjoy the summer holidays and I will see you in September!

Areas of Learning

UKS2 have an exciting first term planned with plenty of new learning experiences! In Maths, we will begin the year by focusing on place value, ensuring that children are secure in their knowledge of numbers up to 1,000,000, including negative numbers and rounding skills. Following this, we will be moving on to securing the children’s knowledge of calculation, beginning with methods for the four operations
and the application of these to problem solving contexts.

In our English lessons, we will explore themes such as friendship, loss, kindness and courage through our novel study book, ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ by Michelle Magorian, where two main characters overcome adversities together during the height of World War II. The book will provide us with the opportunity to have quality discussions and deepen our understanding of the impact of World War II on our country. This will feed into our many writing opportunities, developing our use of style, viewpoint, language and punctuation.

Our English topic links to our first term’s history unit on World War II. During this, we will find out more about key figures during the war (such as Winston Churchill), key events that took place and countries involved, as well as the impact on our local area.

In Geography, we will begin the year learning about European cities. As part of this topic, we will be finding out more about capital cities in Europe, emigration, immigration and migration and why people choose to move.

The work of Vincent Van Gogh will be the inspiration for our art unit this term and through this, we will be exploring how he uses colour to depict mood. We will develop our drawing skills practising texture, tone and using graded pencils to create our final piece.

Class Information

Our classroom will be located in the main school building on the end of the KS2 corridor (in Miss Ellis’ current classroom) and we will be sharing a cloakroom with Mr Steeple’s class. There will be more information about our PE days, homework and school visits coming soon on Dojo.
