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.
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.
