International Food Day
On Friday, 24th February each Form was assigned with a culinary mission to complete. The opportunity to create a dish originating from a specific part of our global community put these budding chefs to the test.
Year One delighted at the tangy tempting Sicilian Lemon Cheesecake that appeared on the menu.
Year Two and Reception served up a tea shop’s worth of Devonshire Scones.
Year Three spun dough, grated cheese and temporarily converted the Gym into a pizzeria.
Year Four whisked cream and crumbled biscuits to deliver a classic New York Strawberry Cheesecake.
Year Five cut out, decorated and duly marvelled at their vast collection of German Gingerbread Men.
Year Six, having negotiated the ‘Rocky Road’ of examinations and interviews, replicated their academic journey in a suitably styled tempting sweet.
Floury faces, sticky fingers and broad smiles accompanied a unique school day where all enjoyed a taste of their handiwork in the kitchen. Some remnants of that shaped by little hands even made it home for further evaluation. The mouth-watering experience that challenged fine motor skills, engaged and inspired is sure to be remembered for some time to come.
