Year 6


Mexico is a land of extremes, with high mountains and deep canyons in the centre of the country, sweeping deserts in the north and dense rainforests in the south and east. Mountains cover much of Mexico. Between the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range in the east and the Sierra Madre Occidental in the west lie small mountain ranges on the Central Plateau. These regions are rich with valuable metals like silver and copper.

What we’ve been doing…

Anne Frank Exhibition Visit

Year 6 have been to Halifax Minster today( 14-11-19 ) to an Anne Frank exhibition this was offered to school free of charge and tied in with our World Wars topic . The children learned about why Anne Frank and her family went in to hiding and about their fate when captured.they also took part in  related activities at the end of the exhibition.

Mexican Food Tasting

The topic this half term in Year 6 has been North America and as part of this we have been looking at Mexican food. The children followed recipes, chopped the ingredients and cooked the food and were introduced to the hygiene rules while preparing food.

Year 6 made guacamole, salsa and quesadillas and parents were invited in to taste the food which also enabled them to look at some of their children's work.

It was a well attended event and fun was had by all.

Parents' Lunch

Here are some of our Year 6 parents and carers enjoying school dinners with their children!

Next week, it’s the turn of Year 5 parents and carers:

Wednesday 23rd October at 11:45am.

Look out for the invitation in your child’s book bag. Please return it by Monday at the latest.

Space is limited to one parent/carer per child.

A Birthday Wish for Rhys

Year 6 have written birthday cards to Rhys Williams who has a rare life limiting and agonising skin condition.
His mum appealed for people to send him birthday cards for his 14th birthday to help make him smile.

In class we are reading the book Wonder which is also about a child struggling with skin and facial problems.
