Vegetarian diets

This afternoon in Food Technology 9D have been thinking about vegetarian diets. We worked together to make a Spanish omelette, with potatoes, peppers, onions, tomatoes, eggs and cheese. We all agreed it was delicious! Some pupils even asked for the recipe, so they could try and make it at home. We will send this home tomorrow – happy cooking, everyone!

Special Diets

This term in Food Technology, 9D are finding out about the special diets that some people follow, either for health, religious or moral reasons. This week we found out about gluten free and dairy free diets, and how those foods could make some people ill. We made some gluten and dairy free scones, and it seems they were a success!

 

CVC words

Pupils in 9D have had a fantastic first full week back. I was particularly impressed with their spelling skills, as they all listened carefully for the sounds they could hear in different CVC words. Well done, 9D – keep it up!

Keeping busy in lockdown

Pupils in 9D are keeping very busy during lockdown, both in school and out. Whether they are completing work packs at home, working through Seesaw tasks online, working in school or helping with jobs at home, we have lots of superstars!

Keep up the fantastic work – we are missing you all and can’t wait to see you all again as soon as we are able.

 

 

 

Christmas Fun

We have had so much fun in 9D this week! We couldn’t go out on trips or have our usual Christmas disco, but we worked together to plan a fabulous party day. We had dancing, party games, Christmas baking, a Santa piñata, pizzas and reindeer hoopla! We don’t know who enjoyed it more – staff or pupils!  We do know that our pupils deserved to have an amazing day, though, as they have all been hard-working super stars this term. Well done, 9D – enjoy your Christmas break, and we’ll see you in the New Year!

Eco bags

Pupils in 9D have been designing eco-friendly bags for life in our Textiles lessons this term. The bags had to be colourful, with a sea-life theme. We have all completed research into this topic before finalising our designs. This week we enjoyed using fabric pens to add our designs to our bags – we think they look great, and can’t wait to start using them!

Remembrance Day

In 9D our English topic this term is War Poetry. Today we read ‘In Flanders Field’, and considered what it means. We talked about how the poem made us feel, before creating some poppies to take home.

8D zoom meetings

Pupils and staff in 8D are enjoying catching up with one another in their Zoom meetings. This morning we had fun with a scavenger hunt! We hope that more of our class will join us for our next session, as it is so lovely to see you all.

Fabric pens

Pupils in 8D have finalised their Chinese New Year T-shirt designs, and today they experienced drawing their designs onto miniature T-shirts using fabric pens. Some pupils used a light box to trace their designs, whilst others drew their designs free hand. All pupils were very proud of their finished products, and are looking forward to creating their final product.

Chinese New Year

This afternoon pupils in 8D have enjoyed some activities about Chinese New Year. We tried to write our names in Chinese calligraphy, made Chinese lanterns, then sampled some Chinese food – with chopsticks!
