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!

Year 1

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. 


Year 2


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.



World Book Day 2017
We had a wonderful World Book Day! As part of the celebrations, each class decorated a door in a book theme. You can see the pictures below. The whole school took part in a writing project, started by Reception and completed by Year 6. Below you can read the whole school story, ' Lucy and the Polar Bears'. Also, the children enjoyed a Harry Potter themed lunch complete with the great hall projected on the wall and music from the film.

A few weeks back each class was given £20. The children had to think of ways to turn this in to a profit. As part of 'Enterprise Week' we held a democratic vote to decide on a charity to donate to. The charity with the majority vote was the Dogs Trust and so we invited the charity in to receive the cheque. The Year 2 councillors presented the charity with a cheque for £260.

Cuerden children from Key Stage 2 sang the Lord's Prayer at the opening ceremony of this year's Methodist Art exhibition. They were joined by five other Preston primary schools, clergy and school leaders, who enjoyed their performance. The displays reached new heights of creativity this year.

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.'
