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.
This week Janice Hamilton, a fish monger from Waitrose in Altrincham, delivered a demonstration to the Year 11 Food and Nutrition students on preparing, filleting and skinning fresh fish. This is an important high level skill required for their GCSE. Janice brought in some Sea Bass and Sea Bream and after showing them the different skills she gave the students the chance to have a go themselves. We really appreciate this opportunity to learn from an expert and the students thoroughly enjoyed the session. Thank you Janice.
The Year 11 students have been looking at raising agents this half term. They have made some amazing Victoria Sponge cakes!
Thank you to Sarah T from 9-3 for sending me her photo of her beautiful chocolate choux buns.
