Welcome to Puffins!
We are a friendly, enthusiastic and hard-working class of year 6 children. Our teachers are Mrs Watson on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs McCluskey-Hornbuckle on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Watson has a passion for anything sport related and enjoys setting herself personal challenges such as running the London Marathon. She also enjoys getting lost in a good book. Reading is also a passion that Mrs Mcluskey-Hornbuckle shares. She enjoys listening to and reading a range of stories. Mrs Mcluskey-Hornbuckle has a vast knowledge of Ferrets which you’ll have to ask her about the next time you see her!
During the year, we have lots of exciting and inspiring topics including Spitfires and Hurricanes (World War Two) and Challenge Caldecott. 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. The trip is all about trying out new activities and pushing ourselves to learn new skills. More importantly, we have lots of fun doing it!
Our days are full of activities that challenge us to develop our 5Rs
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. Our 5Rs are incredibly important to us and enable us to become successful learners.
We know how important it is to keep fit and healthy and enjoy participating in PE sessions so we need our PE kit (including our water bottles) in school at all times. Especially now that we have signed ourselves up to do the daily mile! We love to read so we need to remember to have our reading books in school every day and complete our weekly reading homework.
