It's Been a Good Day
Year 7's (11 and 12 years old) made small cakes today. A really good lesson. All levels of ability in the group and my gosh, it always helps when one is blessed with two learning support assistants in the lesson.
All of the boys in year 7 have really enjoyed Food Technology this year. Their overall enthusiasm and competitiveness really gives me a boost. I think I can honestly say that the old chestnut that 'cooking is for women' is well and truly gone.
At the staff meeting tonight, we received a summary of a 'parents perceptions survey'. Another high 5 for us! I quote, "With regard to subjects: parents were most happy with, P.E., Art and Food Technology".
Another good day in the 'hood.
