Miss Davis Class 20

Welcome to Class 20; your final year at Woodlands!

Miss Davis was very lucky to join the Woodlands team in September 2014, and has enjoyed three brilliant years across Years 4 and 5. She continues to follow her passion for PSHE and hopes that you will help her to link our team of staff and children to create a positive and nurturing ethos of love, teamwork and positivity at Woodlands. As many of you know, last September Miss Davis was appointed as Team Leader for Y5, and got to spend another fantastic year with you all! She was so excited to find out that she would be moving up to Y6 with you too!

Outside of school, Miss Davis loves visiting Scotland to spend time with her family and friends. Also, you will usually find her looking after her two cats: Cookie and Lennon! Miss Davis knows you all quite well already, but she cannot wait to see how much you have improved in Year 5. She is also looking forward to learning more about all of you by discovering your passions, hopes and dreams!

In Class 20, Miss Davis encourages a strong ethos of positivity and success, which comes from commitment and enthusiasm for learning - she believes that you can all achieve your dreams!

“Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams a reality.” Jonas Salk

Miss Davis looks forward to you joining the Class 20 Team - she knows that you will have an AMAZING year working together!

Mr Jenner Class 21

I am extremely happy to have joined Woodlands Primary School and excited to teach in Year 6. My favourite subjects are maths and history and I am looking forward to developing the Year 6 children in these areas. Coming from Wales I have a great passion for rugby and believe in the core values integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and respect. I play rugby locally, most Saturdays. I also try and ensure I watch as many games involving, my hometown club, Scarlets and Wales, and enjoy returning home to visit my mum and family in South Wales.

I look forward to working with the children in Year 6. I believe everyone can achieve, and with the right blend of enthusiasm and commitment we can all reach our goals together.

Reading Top TipsImage result for book

  • Remember there are three main types of question;
  1. Find and copy- exact word and quotes from the text
  2. Inference- an educated guess backed up with textual evidence
  3. Word meanings – synonyms and antonyms
  • Remember when answering questions to bulk out your answers with your own opinion, inferences and direct quotes
  • Don’t forget textual evidence
  • Always look back and read the text- all the answers are lurking in or between the lines!
  • READ, READ, READ… please read as much as you possibly can for the next few weeks to heighten and maintain your reading skills and ability
