Here's a quick round up of the last week or so...


Food Pathway 


Pupils from the Food Pathway made prawn cocktails.
They also created sweet potato ravioli served with a brown sage butter.
To finish off they made caramel cheesecake.
It all tasted delicious.
Work Experience 
The new work experience group from the Horticulture Pathway started at DB Garden Nurseries on Friday. Two new pupils were joined by a pupil that wanted to return as he enjoyed it so much the first time.
They were moving mulch to lay some new paths near the children’s play area, this is so that the nursery can put on a children’s Easter egg hunt for the local community in a couple of weeks.
This term, pupils in KS3 have been using their coding skills to make the Sphero complete a variety of challenges.
We have had races, time challenge mazes and this week we finished with a football match.
The class changed their Sphero colour to red or blue and had to use a variety of controls to help their Sphero defend, work as a team and score a goal! Each class were very competitive. We had a few draws but overall the Blue team won each match (no change there then!)
