Junior Chefs' Academy
The focus for our Special Interest week in May was Design Technology. During the week, we enjoyed food technology with the Junior Chefs' Academy whilst finding out about fruit from around the world. All classes had a go at chopping, slicing and dicing and made a fabulous Tropical Fruit Crunch to take home!
To celebrate the wonderful work done during the special interest week, each class performed a chosen song from their musical. We were treated to wonderful costumes, accessories, dance, drama and music during the show.
Year 1 have looked at the musical 'The Lion King' to link with their learning on animals. The children wrote recipes for a Minibeast Cafe, learnt about and coloured in Tinga Tinga art and designed and made masks for our performance of 'I Just Can't Wait to Be King' in the Musical Extravaganza. You can see some photographs from the week on our class page.
In our class we learned about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We did lots of fun activities such as creating our own chocolate bars which we designed wrappers and slogans for, creating lickable wallpaper and learning the song Pure Imagination from the musical. We created a dance to represent the chocolate waterfall and river. Some children played chime bars and glockenspiels to accompany our singing. We ended the week by performing to the rest of the school in a 'Magic of the Musicals' extravaganza! You can see more of what we got up to during the week on our class webpage.
Special Interest Week- Enterprise Fair in October 2016
As part of our work towards the 'Investors in Pupils' award, the school held a special interest week based on enterprise. The classes were each given £20 and were challenged to use this to make more money to give to charity.
There were lots of imaginative ideas and the children spent the week designing and making items to sell at a special fair. There were also games to play and food to try out! In English lesson, children wrote persuasive leaflets, advertisements, labels and packaging and Maths lessons, there was lots of planning to ensure costs could be met and profits could be made.
During the week, there were presentations about different charities from various classes and al the pupils voted for their favourite. We were astounded by the amount of money raised and delighted to send a profit of over £250 to the 'Dogs Trust.'
