Cinco de Mayo

This week pupils across the schools have been learning about Cinco de Mayo. Pupils held a Fiesta where they celebrated Mexican culture on the day they remember the Battle of the Puebla.

Traditional music from Mariachi Bands was played throughout the day with pupils creating handmade Maracas to play along to the music. They also painted each other’s faces as well as making different snacks such as nachos to enjoy during the Fiesta.

As well as the celebration of culture pupils learnt about the history surrounding the holiday and why it is such an important date in Mexico.
