YEAR 6 ACTIVITIES

We thought it would be useful to see a list of our final activities and celebrations at Exwick Heights Primary School (as well as what the children need to bring and remember for each day!)

Could we also ask that your child brings in a few plastic bags so that they are prepared to bring home their workbooks and belongings!

We are very excited to celebrate their final few days with them!

Best wishes,

Miss Baxter, Miss Stone and Mr. Tanner

Free Family Cookery Workshops

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS

Every Monday in August, St Sidwell’s Community Centre will host FREE two-hour family cookery workshops.

During these fun and friendly cooking sessions, St Sidwell’s cafe staff will teach children and parents/carers how to cook a simple recipe, with everyone sitting down and enjoying the meal together at the end.

We will also send families home with three additional takeaway meal kits, with printed recipes, to cook throughout the rest of the week.

Children must be supervised by a parent or carer at all times during the workshops. Light snacks will be provided.

The workshops run from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Monday, August 1
  • Monday, August 8
  • Monday, August 15
  • Monday, August 22
