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.
Well done to year 11 who have completed their NEA 2 and 50% of their GCSE in food and nutrition.
See some of their dishes here:
Year 10 are working hard this term understanding more about the chemical and physical properties of the ingredients used to make bread. This half term they will make soda bread and butter, naan bread and curry, shaped bread rolls and tortilla wraps to serve with fajitas.
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.
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.
