Year 5 Taster Lessons
Irlam & Cadishead College Improvement Plan is designed to ensure that by Summer 2017 we are regarded as a College on its way to becoming the ‘first choice of school in our local community’. Throughout the year we are intent on building upon the links we have forged with parents/carers, local stakeholders, education and community partners.
The College has successfully offered Primary Schools an ‘opt into’ timetable of Year 5 Taster Lessons. To date, the response has been excellent. Schools who have enjoyed Year 5 Taster lessons to date are:
Irlam Endowed Primary School – French & Maths
Irlam Endowed Year 5 students visited the College and enjoyed taking part in a Maths Taster Lesson with Curriculum Leader, Mrs Bibby and a French Lesson with Mrs Rouillon. Primary school students were fully engaged in ICC Maths Mastery and full of ‘joie de vivre’ in French.
Fiddlers Lane Primary School – Science
Fiddlers Lane Primary School visited the College on 17th May for a Science Lesson with Miss Lingard. They took part in a practical experiment using simple filtration techniques to separate rock salt from gravel.
St. Mary’s Primary School – French and Design Technology
St. Mary’s Primary School students really enjoyed their experience in the Design Technology Department making laser cut key fobs with Mr Howarth and Mr Nielson. Students stated ‘that was fantastic, when can we come again?’ They are now looking forward to their next Taster Lesson on 16th June.
St. Teresa’s and Irlam Primary School
Students made Pitta Pizzas with Mrs Sams and laser cut key fobs/die cut packaging with Mr Howarth and Mr Nielson. Hannah Starkey, Year 5 Class Teacher said, “We would just like to say thank you for having our Year 5 children in yesterday doing technology. They had an amazing time and kept telling me they’re excited for their next session.”
Students from Irlam Primary School made Pitta Pizza with Mrs Sams. They experienced ‘hands-on’ kitchen skills to create their own pizza and took it home for ‘dinner’.
