Year 10 GCSE students at the Good Food Show

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.

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.

Year 10 Amazing Spaces project

Mrs Lovelady’s Year 10 D&T group have just completed the first project of the year. The design task was based around the concept of ‘Micro apartments’, often found in expensive cities such as London. The students researched the social issues surrounding the increase of property prices in London and how many people were now living in so called ‘Micro Apartments’.

After a series of investigation and designing, the students created a scale model including interior of their solution to the problem. The models have explored space saving storage, pull out furniture and décor that gives the illusion of space.

An excellent start to the course, well done Year 10!
