The Mackenzie Thorpe Centre is an independent specialist school based in South Bank, Redcar and Cleveland for pupils aged 5-19

Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodiverse people to fulfil their potential in life.

Class Two

We have been learning about Black History and we have enjoyed learning about Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and Harriet Tubman.

After listening to the famous speech ‘I have a dream.’ By Martin Luther King the children came up with their own fantastic speeches about bullying and wanting to make a big difference in the world.

I have a dream that cyber bullying will stop because people are getting upset.

I have a dream that all bullies and racists will go so life can be equal!

Class Four

In class 4 we have been celebrating Black History Month. Black History Month is about sharing, celebrating and understanding the impact of black heritage and culture.

We cooked some delicious recipes that originated in Africa, Jamaica and India - including flatbreads which were delicious eaten while still warm. All of our friends came to try and celebrate the different cultures that make up our community and our school.
