Mr Bull Class 17

I am extremely excited to start my third year as part of the Woodlands Family, and second in Year 5. I have a passion for PE and cannot wait to develop the Year 5/6 Football, Athletics and Netball teams. My main strength is Maths, and I’m looking forward to developing and challenging the children of year 5. Outside school, I am a huge sports follower and an avid supporter of both the Northampton Saints and Arsenal. I am also really in to my fitness and can often be seen running around the streets of Chester. I am really looking forward to having a fantastic year with you all.

Maths Magic

This term in mathematics, we have been exploring place value in numbers with up to 6 digits, along with counting forwards and backwards through zero and interpreting negative numbers in a variety of ways.
We are continuing to develop our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills by applying our knowledge to exciting contexts, such as cracking codes, answering true or false questions and spotting the mistake.
Explaining how we have got to our answer and justifying why we are correct is vital, therefore when practicing these skills at home with your child, please encourage an explanation of their answer by using simple questions such as‘How do you know?’ and ‘What is the pattern/rule?'

You will at least once a week with an adult in guided reading sessions. You can also write in your reading record whenever you have read with a signature from the adult you live with. You are asked to read at least three times a week and record each one in your reading record with a comment about what you have read.

Times Tables 

All children must know all times tables up to twelve by the end of the year, which we will also learn and check in class.


For each spelling group, there will also be regular spellings to be memorised.


When we begin a new topic, you will have the chance to research the following topic ready for your learning.
