We are starting the year with a fun-filled topic, Hola Mexico! The topic has obvious links to history and geography but in-line with the children’s own ideas put forward on Transition Day, we will also be covering Mexican art, music, English and maths and even some cookery – yum! Our learning will link as much as possible to our full curriculum, including Learning Logs.
Year 6s enjoyed reading their own versions of a Mexican legend, The Dwarf of Uxmal, to the Year 1 children. They tried really hard with their voice projection and expression and asked the Year 1s questions at the end to ensure they had understood and enjoyed the stories. It was lovely to watch the older and younger children learning together.
What an amazing week we had at Carlton Lodge! The children were excellent ambassadors for our school and have every reason to be very proud of themselves for their efforts and bravery, as well as the support and encouragement they offered their classmates. We had lots of fun caving, gorge walking, climbing and abseiling, not to mention at the disco on Thursday night! A great week had by all; well done, Year 6!
