In the last two days of school, Year 8 got to choose which subject they would like to do for activities week.
They were allowed to choose any subject within the Art and Technology Faculty; I chose Catering with Mrs Bushell and Mrs Smith.
As it was a House Competition, we had to work in our houses (I was in Endeavour). A lot of the competition was about how well we could work as a team. Our themes were insects and trees; each house was given an insect to base their designs on: Dragonflies for Endeavour, Ladybirds for Diversity, Grasshoppers for Aspiration.
We were set the following recipes as our tasks: a tree loaf, including at least one insect as decoration, a garlic bread tree, a Nutella tree.
My favourite was definitely the Nutella tree, like most people, because it included Nutella and tasted the best! At the end of
the second day we all presented our breads and then we voted for our favourites and the best team. It was a really fun 2 days
which I would love to do again.
