Welcome to Puffins!
We are a friendly, enthusiastic and hard-working class of year 6 children. Our teacher is Mrs Eastwood, who enjoys maths and reading. In year 6, we also have Mrs Oram and Mrs Carlene to help us on our learning journey.
During the year, we investigate many inspiring topics including Spitfires and Hurricanes (World War Two) and Challenge Caldecott (Morfa Bay). We like to go on visits to support our learning and frequently have visitors and special days in school which are linked to our topic. This is also the year group when we have the opportunity to go on a residential trip to Morfa Bay in Wales.
We also demonstrate the 5Rs beyond the classroom. For example, as the oldest children in the school, we enjoy taking on responsibilities such as being Reading Champions, Maths Ambassadors and House Captains. We also use our resourcefulness to raise money for our end of year celebrations.
On Tuesday 5th February, Year 6 held a Dragon's Den style Fab Finish to share the work they have been doing as part of this term's topic 'The Apprentice'. The children worked in teams to design and make working cars, using skills learned in science and DT, and then developed their ideas into a business which they pitched to the 'dragons' (Mrs Stone, Miss Walsh and Mrs Prior). Each team then sold their cars to parents and carers and also sold other items such as cakes and drinks in order to make a profit.
Thank you to parents and carers for donating items to sell and buying your children's cars!
