7W's geography topic is Flooding. We have looked at the different types of flood and pupils had a go at creating their own flood defences. They were very successful!
It's been another busy week in the secondary food room, Year 10 catering students have made their own pasta this week, served with mustard, Parmesan chicken and Parmesan lolly pops. I have to say I thought the class were part Italian with the amazing skills they showed in using the pasta machine.
Year 11 have been learning about recipes and following instructions and how you can adapt savoury recipes. The class enjoyed the demonstration on using a packet cake mix and how the ordering of the instructions to follow was so important. They also enjoyed the sampling of the cakes once they were cooked.
Finally 8I have produced the most delicious Chelsea buns and practised their weighing, measuring and rolling out skills; we truly have some expert bakers at WFS.

This morning our English group (some of 8H and 9P) went into the teepee to listen to the story of Beowulf. It was the first time we had heard the full story and we were all engrossed. 😊
Farm to Fork
Sixth form Class 13P enjoyed visiting Tesco “Farm to Fork” this was an opportunity to look around their store showing students how the food we eat gets on to our plate. One of our students said “I would like a job here”
(This may open job opportunities for student in the future).
