Year 8 Cooking and Nutrition

“I welcomed my new food group this week – 8B3.

The students have been very positive and showed real interest in the Calzone demonstration during the lesson on Thursday. The challenge was set – Calzone at home. What a positive response. I have received so many wonderful photos – it has made my weekend.

Thank you and keep them coming”

Mrs James

Science Revision Guides

Science revision guides and workbooks are now available at cost price on Parentpay. These would be especially useful this year as they give an excellent, comprehensive coverage of everything students need to know.

Please look out for the letters which will be coming out soon, however the letter is just for information. If you want to get on with it as soon as possible we will make sure that every student gets the right ones for the course they are on.

As always, we are happy to exchange any which are still in good condition if students change group, tier or course as there are plenty of things we can do with slightly used copies.

Before you do that, it is worth checking if students in Years 8,10 and 11 have already got one somewhere!

If you require further information, please email me directly.

Jim Eltringham, Head of Science
