Miss Williams Class 16

I am so excited to be teaching at Woodlands and continuing Miss Hudson's hard work! Class 16 have really welcomed me and I look forward to making more memories with you all! My favourite subject is Literacy and I can't wait to see what stories we come up with.
In my spare time I enjoy going to the cinema, meeting up with friends and playing with my adorable 3 year old nephew!

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.

Miss Williams originally joined Woodlands in September 2015 as she truly values the nurturing and exciting atmosphere across the school. She is very passionate about maths, as she enjoys solving problems and challenges! Languages are another passion of hers. In Class 18, there is a strong team ethos of respect and support for one another.

Welcome to Year 5!          

For our Ebb and Flow topic, we are studying the monumental Niagara Falls through the text Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsberg. 

Who is the Queen of the Falls? How did she come by this name?


Literacy Learning

In Spring, we will be focusing on:
  • Relative clauses using relative nouns (who, which, when, what)
  • Linking ideas across our paragraphs using adverbials for time, place and number
  • Editing and redrafting our writing
  • Using direct speech punctuation 


Maths Magic

In Spring, we will be focusing on:
  • Multiplication and division
  • Fractions
  • Decimals 


Things to remember...

Each day, remember to bring your reading record and a water bottle. 

PE for Year 5 is on a Monday and Thursday. 

Try to be punctual as classroom doors open at 8:45.

All homework will be given out on Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. 

Each task will be uploaded to this page so you have access to them at home if the task is lost or if you want to have another go!

Maths and Literacy

Each week, you will receive maths and literacy homework based on current learning.


At least once a week in school, you will read with an adult in guided reading sessions. At home, we encourage you to read a further three times and record each read in your reading record with a comment about what you have read. You can also ask an adult at home to write a comment as well as their signature for the comments you have written. 

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.

Common exception words can also be found in the back of children's reading records which we have studied in class and must now be committed to memory.


When we begin a new topic, you will have the opportunity to research this subject before it has begun so you are ready for your learning.
