This afternoon in 10D we completed our topic ‘Bread’ by making our own bagels. We all enjoy a breakfast bagel in the classroom on a morning, so thought we’d see what home-made bagels were like.
The dough looked and felt the same as the other bread products we have made, but we all thought it was quite unusual to boil them before we baked them in the oven.
They looked and smelled delicious once they were cooked – we hope they taste good too!
This afternoon in 10D we continued our work on bread. This week we decided to make pizzas. We made our own dough, rolled it out, then chose our favourite toppings. They looked and smelled delicious – we hope you enjoyed them!
As part of their Transition Challenge award, some pupils in year 10 have been planning a mini enterprise project this term. They worked as a team to share and discuss ideas, before deciding to make cinder toffee fudge to sell to staff. This afternoon they helped to package and label the fudge, before delivering it to staff who had placed orders. Next week we will work out what profit we made!
Pupils in 9D are enjoying being able to read real books again during their daily Accelerated Reading Time!
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!
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.
