As they begin their final year at Bayfield, year 6 students are ready to take on the leadership responsibilities across the school.  Developing their growing independent skills, Puriri students  work on genius hour projects and collaborative inquiries alongside the core curriculum (reading, writing and maths.) By years end they are ready to meet the challenge of intermediate school with so many happy memories of their years at Bayfield.

Tuning in to Aotearoa New Zealand History 2023

We begin the year with an integrated inquiry about Te Tiriti o Waitangi. This will be the first unit of study from the new Aotearoa New Zealand Histories Curriculum.

Year 6 Camp

One of the highlights year six is EOTC week spent at Shakespear lodge in Whangaparoa. Along with the wonderful outdoor challenges including climbing, orienteering, target shooting and swimming, students develop and practice valuable independence skills that a week away from home brings.
