The Year 10 Catering Practical exams took place from the 9-16th June and as always a busy couple of days and months led up to the exam.
The students involved had been planning and practicing for the months leading up to the exam where they were required to make and present 4 dishes that had a fruit or vegetable ingredient. Skills and preparation were to be judged in this exam, as well as being able to work to a time plan and of course produce well-presented and delicious dishes!
A variety of dishes were prepared, cooked and baked and after a week’s hard work staff were pleased with the outcomes achieved by many.
On Monday 16 June 21 Year 7 students took part in a Textiles printing workshop.
2 members of staff from the Art, Design and Media department led an hours workshop that allowed students to experiment with block printing. It was an exciting session that allowed students to experiment with new techniques and create original pieces for Textiles.
Thank you so much to Bridgwater College for delivering such an insightful workshop.
