Pupils in Year 8 have been working on the Bake-Off Project where they have been learning to develop their technical cooking skills in food preparation linked to baking. Pupils have learnt about the scientific principles behind how ingredients work when they are combined and their functional properties. Pupils applied the core principles of baking science to the preparation of a variety of food products within set time constraints. During the Bake-Off pupils were assessed on their hygiene and safety, organisation, preparation of ingredients, cooking and presentation skills. Pupils have produced some fantastic baked food products showcasing excellent creativity and a high level of technical skill.
