Technology- Changing Recipes
Students who opted into Technology have been working on changing recipes and the idea of variations. They have made different types of scones, flapjack and, no-cook cereal bars. Our focus was creating healthy snacks based on a basic recipe which students then adapted. We sold these in our school café. The no-cook cereal bars were the most popular. Here is one of the most popular recipes. Why not try it at home?
Guide Dogs for the Blind
David brought Jago to visit Post 16 this week. Jago is a trainee guide dog. Students used the internet to research what guide dogs do and prepared questions to ask. Jago was very well behaved and the students enjoyed learning all about a guide dogs life and training. We then presented David with a cheque for all the money Robin class had raised for the charity in Citizenship. We raised £80 selling our Easter crafts to staff at school.
Careers, IAG- Raising Aspirations @The Park
KS5 went to a careers morning at The Park called Raising Aspirations. We learnt about different career opportunities and listened to talks from Square Food foundation, Animal Care and apprenticeships. Some of our students took part in a smoothie-making activity and others tried some inclusive problem-solving activities run by the armed forces. They made a go-kart and they played a game using coloured balls to test reflexes.
The VC Café
Post 16 are running a small café for other New Fosseway learners and staff on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10.30am until 11.15am. It helps our students develop their functional maths and English as well as developing employability skills. Students can set up the café, take orders, use the cash til, count the money and complete simple stock-checks. It also gives our younger learners a chance to practise their social skills in a safe and familiar environment.
The Marriott Afternoon Tea
The Marriott Hotel kindly came to school on Monday to serve our KS4 & KS5 afternoon tea as part of the Christmas festivities. There were a range of sandwiches (with the crusts cut off) and lots of different cakes including minced pies, jam and cream scones and chocolate eclairs. Needless to say, the students had a great time and were thoroughly well fed!
A huge thank you to the Marriott for their generosity!
Post 16 were invited to take part in Treefest, a charity Christmas festival at St. Mary Redcliffe for the second year running. We have designed and made a Christmas tree as part of the exhibition. Our theme is European Green Capital 2015. We have re-used materials to make both the tree and the decorations.
The exhibition runs from 8th – 13th December at St. Mary Redcliffe. It is open daily from 10am- 5pm.
