Challenge based learning!

As part of our topic, ‘Why is Leyland world famous?’, we were set a challenge of epic proportions!

We needed to plan a holiday for an American family of 4, (the Patriot family) to visit Leyland for 5 days. In order to complete our task we had to use the internet to cost flights and hotels, produce a timetable for activities, contact local taxi companies and prepare a presentation for the family to show our findings!

It was a difficult task but we managed it! Crucially, we all worked well in our groups and organized ourselves so each group member had a specific task which needed to be completed by a strict deadline.

Our presentation consisted of a keynote which we delivered to the Patriot family.

Dewlay – A visit from a local cheese maker

Posted in General News | No Comments »

Today, we had a visit from staff at Dewlay, Garstang, who showed us the entire process of how cheese is made.

It was brilliant!!!

We saw how cheese makers use milk, with added ingredients, to make delicious creamy Lancashire cheese; we even got to taste it – yum!

Thank you very much to our visitors, who made this such a fantastic, fun, real learning experience!

Philippeines Appeal

As we will be learning all about food next week, it seems fitting that we should also take the time to remember those in need of food and other life saving provisions at this time.

The recent devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines is thought to be the strongest typhoon ever to hit land and millions of people have suffered and are in desperate need of help.

We may be thousands of miles from them but there is something we can all do to help.
