I would like to end this academic year by saying well done to all of you who have made some of the amazing dishes that leave F7 every day. Thank you for all your hard work. Well done and good luck to Year 11.
Over the last 2 weeks we have run the AGGS Bake Off competition. More than 30 students entered the competition and made Swiss rolls in the elimination round. We are looking forward to the final in September when the chosen finalists will be asked to make a show stopper cake that reflects their personality!
We were lucky enough to receive some money from the PTA which we have spent on new equipment that will benefit all students. Thank you PTA.
Mrs. Clutton and Mrs. Hulme have planned a new trip for Year 11 which will allow the students to investigate food provenance and the topics of primary and secondary processing, organic farming and environmental issues linked to food at Stockley Farm.
Year 9 have worked hard on their street food projects and have made some amazing dishes that reflect the progress they have made in food since they started in year 7.
Thank you to everyone who helps in the food department. Happy holidays. We look forward to working with you again in September.
This half term has been a busy one in food. We have said goodbye to our year 11 students and wish them lots of luck in their exams.
The year 10 students went on a trip to the Food Sorcery in Didsbury to develop and improve their practical skills. They made delicious Cornish pasties and profiteroles. We had a fantastic time and picked up lots of new tricks to ensure success when making choux pastry.
Years 7, 8 and 9 continue to work hard to develop their own skills and have produced some lovely dishes this term including home made pizzas, chilli con carne and chicken goujons.
Have a lovely break. We are looking forward to the launch of the AGGS Bake Off 2018 competition after the break.
Over the last two weeks, pupils have been celebrating the language history and culture of India. This has focussed on our KS3 pupils, with a variety of activities taking place, such as samosa making; jewellery making; sitar playing in assembly; learning new Indian languages; talks about Indian politics, Indian history and Indian religions; Indian dancing; Hinglish; playing Kabaddi and cricket. We are very grateful to departments for coordinating such interesting activities and to the pupils themselves, who have led many of them.
The Year 11 GCSE food and nutrition students have worked really hard over the last three weeks to complete the practical element of their NEA 2. They have made some delicious dishes so well done and thank you for all their hard work. Thanks must also go to those at home behind the scenes who have helped with all the preparation as well as putting up with their kitchen being taken over! Thank you.
Well done to all those students studying food technology this term. The year 10 students have made a great start to their new course and the year 11 students have continued to work as hard as ever. Well done everyone and thanks for all the parental support. We’ve had some fantastic Christmas bakes this year.
On 1st December, last Friday, the Year 10 GCSE students spent the day at the Good Food Show in Birmingham. We all had a great day and immersed ourselves in the exciting and ever changing world of food. There were lots of famous faces about including Nadia Hussain, a previous winner of the Great British Bake Off, who did a demonstration for the students in the Big Kitchen super theatre.
Well done to all the Year 9 students who have completed their work in Key Stage 3 Food. See some photos below of the delicious street food they have made to celebrate the skills they have learned over the past three years.
