Year 9 2016-2017
In “How Does it Work” we are making collages with different materials like magazines and tissue paper. We create them every Wednesday with Gillian. In English we have been continuing with our phonics and reading. We have Food Tech every Thursday and we are learning about pastry. We have been making different types of pastry; such as puff pastry, filo pastry and short crust pastry. On Fridays we have been doing athletics with two sports coaches. Lizzy and Tom teach us how to sprint, throw javelin, hammer and shot put. It is lots of fun. Army Day was awesome. We especially enjoyed the obstacle courses.
Recently Osborne School took part in a whole school “Bake Off” in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. 9BR were very enthusiastic in their approach and a great deal of debate and discussions took place in advance. We watched some clips about the charity and the excellent work they do; then we watched a bit of the real “Bake Off” for inspiration. We went for a spiced apple cake and did some preparatory drawings for what we thought would be a good design. The class worked brilliantly as a team, helping each other and sharing skills and ideas.
The final creation had thick jam in the middle and sported a poppy seed infused icing with glace cherries on top. We didn’t win but had good fun making it (and tasting it after judging finished!). Paul Hollywood has competition!!!
