Mr Bull 6PB

Hello! I am Mr Bull and I am now in my 6th year of teaching at Woodlands Primary School.

I am very excited to be your Year 6 teacher, and cannot wait to watch you grow and flourish over the year. As most of you will already know, I am extremely passionate about PE (although a little competitive) and lead this subject with Miss Roberts. I am also very passionate about Maths and get very excited when I see them light bulb moments as new learning is achieved.

At home, I spend a lot of time chasing after my two children Eloise and Owen. Owen has just started to walk and is racing around the house at lightning speeds. You can often see us on walks or riding our bikes when the weather is not too wet. I love to keep fit and can often be seen stretching my long legs around the streets of Chester.

I look forward to us all striving to reach our goals together. We are all capable of amazing things.

Hi everyone! I am Miss Tyrer, and I am delighted to be entering my 5th year of teaching at Woodlands Primary School. I cannot wait to spend another year as part of such an exciting and creative school, and I am thrilled to be continuing my journey as a Year 6 teacher.

I have a real passion for Maths, and I am incredibly proud to be the Maths subject leader for Woodlands. Even though I found the subject a challenge when I was at school, I love teaching children to become confident mathematicians, able to apply their understanding of mathematical concepts to challenging and complex problems.

When I am not in school, I enjoy going to concerts, spending time with family and friends and going climbing and bouldering. You will often find me at Boulder Hut (with my brother Ben), climbing the walls and trying not to fall off! If I am not out climbing, I am usually in the gym or watching football because I am a huge fan of the game.

I believe that in order to succeed it is vital to work as a team and support one another through all of the exciting challenges a new year can bring. I cannot wait to get to know you all better and learn all about your hopes, dreams and aspirations!

Hi! I am Miss Moore and this will be my third year at Woodlands Primary School. I can’t wait to have the privilege of teaching our class again in Year 6.

I am particularly passionate about maths and I enjoy teaching fun and engaging science lessons. I am the computing subject lead at Woodlands and my favourite thing is planning new and creative ways to use technology in the classroom across school. I also love teaching art and SMSC because they can be such meaningful and expressive subjects.

When I am not in school, I enjoy watching live music, watching Manchester City and other football teams and spending time with my friends and family.

I can’t wait to learn even more about all of you in your final year at Woodlands and be a part of your wonderful journey in Year 6.

Let’s make this our best year ever!

Welcome to Year 6!

Our main topic for Spring 1 is the Maya! 

In this topic, we will discover who the Maya were, where they lived and when in history they thrived. We will learn about the characteristic features of Maya civilisations, and find differences in Maya beliefs compared to religious beliefs today. We will investigate the possible reasons for the demise of the Maya civilisation even though Maya people still live today.

Literacy: Spring 1

This term, our new literacy text will be The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde.

The children played in the Giant's garden, but when he returned after years away, he said 'What are you doing here?' and the children fled. 'My own garden is my own garden,' said the Giant; 'anyone can understand that, and I will allow nobody to play in it but myself.

Please continue to use the Spelling Shed app and complete the spelling assignments that are set weekly by your class teacher!

 

Maths: Spring 1

In our second half term, Year 6 will be focusing on the final steps of our work on the four operations, as well as looking at fractions. We will be securing previous knowledge and furthering their learning by completing exciting open-ended investigations to ensure their understanding.

 

 

Times Tables Rockstars!

Last year, the children really enjoyed watching their 'Rock Status' grow and challenging other classes. It is vitally important that all children have a firm understanding of their multiplication tables by the time they leave primary school. We strongly encourage the children to practise their times tables at home weekly using the TTRockstars website or app.
