In Y5/6 we have been running a Dragon's Den project for the last two weeks. This has been a truly creative project where we have thought about applying lots of our skills from persuasive writing for adverts to mathematics including nets, and profit or loss.

Maisie, a Year 6 in Class 9, said, "I have learnt more about the different food groups. I have become a more confident speaking in front of the full Year 5/6. I have learnt more about what protein, minerals and fibre help us with. I have learnt about how to make a price so we have a profit. We have made a script for our pitch. I felt nervous because Mr Stockwell, Miss Smith and the wonderful Mrs Thompson were the fierce dragons! I felt proud because at first I didn't really want to do it, however now I feel confident."

We used our ICT skills to make an advert for our product. Here is an example:

We also used our Design & Technology skills to make the product to see how tasty it was.
