Congratulations go to; Oliver Rogers a year 9 student, for his inventive interpretation of the theme, Charley-May McDonald a year 7, who added a creative three dimension element to her cake, Hollie Cullen and Ellie Popplestone, year 8 students for their professional chocolate cakes and Emily Horswell a year 11 for her eye catching Red velvet cake.
The sale of the cakes was extremely popular with students queuing to purchase the creative goodies at break and lunch times; £64 was raised.
Well done and thank you to all students who baked and/or ate cake and a special thank you to Miss Coggins and Mrs Frayling for organising the event.
The following students, Matthew Caddick, Alex Henwood, Thomas Morgan and Charlotte Vile from Court Fields School took part in the ‘Young Chef’ competition, run by the Rotary Club. They designed a three course meal for two, costing less than £15. They were then selected to cook their meals at Bridgwater and Taunton College for local chefs and many supporters. Their food teacher Miss Coggins escorted the young chefs and was very impressed to see their independence in a highly pressured situation. They were judged on their table setting, presentation of the dishes, texture, taste and flavour combinations. It was a fantastic opportunity and experience for all the students that took part, and an exceptional achievement for Thomas Morgan Year 8 who received first prize, he will now go on to the next stage of the competition on Saturday 4th February. Matthew Caddick Year 9 received a close second place. Thank you to Philip Greenway for organising the competition this year.
The Design Technology department at Court Fields School ran their annual inter house Christmas competition. Students in tutor groups worked together to create a free standing ‘Snowperson’ made out of recycled materials. The creations were judged against the set criteria with additional points for creativity. Special thanks go to the student leaders in year 11 who judged; Becky Gatling, Bethany Channon, Megan Beale and Lottie Radford “We had great fun going round all the tutor rooms to see the wonderful creations they had made, some ideas were really original, I liked the melted snowman, but unfortunately it didn’t meet the set criteria to win”
Entries included; several made from plastic drinking cups, a melted snowman with his twig arms and nose left on a white paper chain, and Gerald the car tyre stack riding a sledge mounted on a skate board!
The individual winners were announced at the Christmas assembly with points added to house totals. Congratulations to Mrs Miles and her tutor group Sa6 whose winning creation is pictured below.
