Just a quick message from me to say thank you to all my students for all your hard work this term. This has been a busy term.
Year 10 and 11 students recently enjoyed working with representatives from the research group Common Vision. They have been commissioned to complete some research by the charity Bite Back 2030 which was set up by Jamie Oliver. The mission of this charity is “to help ensure that every young person has access to healthy and nutritious food, no matter where they live”. Our students took part in a focus group session that asked them for their opinion on the importance of food sustainability and access for everyone to a nutritious diet. The researchers were really impressed, not only with the students’ knowledge, but also with their commitment to this issue and the ideas they had to help find some solutions.
Well done to all the year 9 students who have completed their work in food for key stage 3. I hope you all carry on cooking at home to keep up the skills you have learnt. Year 10 have made an excellent start to their GCSE, their enthusiasm for the subject never ceases to amaze me. Year 7 and 8 students continue to work hard and develop their skills.
Thank you to all the parents and carers for their continued support to ensure all the students have everything they need for their lessons. If any of you are still looking for ideas for presents or stocking fillers, a set of digital scales or an electric hand whisk would be lovely for any student who enjoys cooking. For those who enjoy baking, some piping bags and cocktail sticks for feathering are simple gifts that can provide endless hours of entertainment. I hope you all have a lovely holiday and a well-deserved rest.
Love Mrs. Clutton
