Year 6 2019 - 2020
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.
Miss Tyrer 6LT
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 Spring term 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.
Charles Darwin first visited the Galapagos Islands almost 200 years ago, only to discover a land filled with plants and animals that could not be found anywhere else on earth. How did they come to inhabit the island? How long will they remain? The Island is an extraordinary book, and an epic saga of the life of an island born of fire, rising to greatness, its decline, and finally the emergence of life on new islands.
In the Spring term, we will be studying The Island by Jason Chin
In the Spring term, we will be focusing on:
Last year, the children really enjoyed watching their ROCK STATUS grow and challenging other classes. Every child in the year should now have their own username and password. Now in the run up to SATs, it is vitally important that all children have a firm understanding of mental multiplication and division and it would really help to encourage this at home.
Last year, the children really enjoyed looking out for their name on the school top scorer table and looked forward to the certificates coming around each Friday.
