Food Technology – Y9 Cheesecakes

Mrs Bramley’s & Mrs Lawrence’s year 9 groups showed great skill and creativity in their final practical lesson of the year!

The three single photographs show the star baker nominations for the adapted cheesecakes; the rest of the Year 9 cheesecakes can be found below. They were all amazing; they really took to the challenge for their last food lesson, lots of creative and skillful adaptations!

Mrs Bramley & Mrs Lawrence are both very proud of all their efforts!

Geography – Year 12 trip to Gibraltar Point

The year 12 Geography students have spent the day at Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve collecting data in both sand dunes and salt marsh environments. They will now use the skills they have learnt in preparation for their NEA coursework.

 

Year 9 – Enterprise Day 2023

The event was held Wednesday 5th July for the whole of Year 9, as a first introduction to possible career routes.  They had the opportunity to speak to external Business Advisors from many local businesses, including NatWest, NHS Corporate, IBM, BAE Systems, PepsiCo and a Surveyor from Lincoln City Council to name few.  In fact, we were supported by 18 Business Advisors.
They completed a range of activities from building a spaghetti and marshmallow tower to designing a career App for them to use in the future.  

 

Quotes from the Business Advisors:

 

“Very well organised with interesting and thought-provoking activities”

 

“Whole day was excellent, with clear instructions from the team”
The event was run by the BTEC Sixth Form Business students alongside the Business Department to support their qualification.

 

Well done to all students and Business Advisors for a successful day.

Geography – Year 7 Trip to Edale

Yesterday, some of our year 7 Geographers visited Edale in the Peak District to conduct a river study. They carried out fieldwork on two different parts of the river. This included measuring the width and depth of the river, the velocity (speed) and also taking sediment samples. All of the students were involved in the fieldwork, and it was a great way to link some of their knowledge they had learnt on the topic of rivers in lessons to a real-life example! Click on the images below to see the Year 7 students in action!

 

Food Technology – Cheesecakes

Mrs Lawrence’s group were brilliant at making their own cheesecakes today! The class really listened to instructions and applied some interesting adaptations to their cheesecakes. Please find images of the students work below.
