Mr Bull 6PB

Hi, I am Mr Bull and I have now been working at Woodlands Primary School for over 4 years. I am currently a Y6 teacher and maths lead.

I am extremely passionate about PE and cannot wait to continue to encourage children to get active both in class and out. I particularly enjoy maths, and I am looking forward to continuing to develop and challenge the children in year 6.

Outside of school, I am a devoted husband and father to my 4-year-old daughter Eloise and 4 month old son Owen. When I get some free time, I like to catch up with friends or watch any sport that’s available.

I am very excited to move up to year 6 with the Y5 children and continue the excellent progress they have made this year.

Hi! I am Miss Tyrer, and I am delighted to be entering my 4th 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 for another year.

I have a real passion for Maths as – 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 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 the exciting challenges a new year can bring. I cannot wait to get to know you all better and learn all about your dreams and aspirations!

Our topic for the Summer 2 is Explorers!

In our Explorers unit, Year 6 will investigate changes in landscapes and land use over time. Beginning in France, we will explain how the human geography of the country has changed over the years, and study tourism and migration patterns in France. We will also research which parts of France generate the most tourism and explain the reasons why. Then - as we plan an adventure across Europe in a traditional hot air balloon - Year 6 will research famous journeys in different parts of world, including the fascinating travels of Ibn Battutua in the 1300s.

Maths: Summer 2

In our final term, Year 6 will be focusing on problem solving and reasoning in Maths! They will be completing exciting investigations across all taught areas of maths in prepatation for high school.

 

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.
