Food & Nutrition this term

Category: Food, News

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.

Year 10 have made a fantastic start to their GCSE. They have worked very hard and developed some great skills. They have experienced their first practical exam which they all took in their stride. They recently attended Trafford College for the morning, working with a chef lecturer in the restaurant kitchen. A fantastic opportunity to learn new skills.

Key stage 3 students have continued to learn how to use their skills to make meals for their friends and families. 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.

The year 9 Master Chef final saw Sarah crowned as the champion for this year. All finalists produced delicious dishes. Sarah’s eclairs just pipped them at the post.

It was amazing to watch Clara taking part in an episode of Blue Peter earlier this term. She was helping to demonstrate how to make the trifle chosen as the national pudding to celebrate the Queens Jubilee this summer. Aisya, another year 8 student, was chosen to take part in the Junior Bake Off and got all the way to the final, another amazing achievement.

Remember if you are at a loose end this summer get in the kitchen and cook or bake. Practise skills such as cake decorating or working with chocolate. Don’t forget to practise those chopping skills too. Thank you to everyone who has helped in food this year. Happy holidays. We look forward to working with you again in September.
