A Day in the Life

yr 9200Year 9 stu­dents have been pre­sent­ing their lat­est Home­work Projects. “A Day in the Life” is a His­tory and Food Tech­nol­ogy Project where stu­dents com­pare their lives in the present day with the life of a post WWII child liv­ing in the 1950’s, with a par­tic­u­lar focus on food. Stu­dents show­cased their projects in the school hall and fam­ily and friends were invited to attend. Many stu­dents pro­duced projects of a high stan­dard; many had baked prod­ucts using 1950’s recipes which we all enjoyed sam­pling! There were also many authen­tic pho­tographs, ration books and other mem­o­ra­bilia that stu­dents had bor­rowed from grand­par­ents and friends. The qual­ity of many of the writ­ten projects and visual dis­plays was of a very high stan­dard and there was much pos­i­tive feed­back from vis­i­tors, other stu­dents and staff. Well done year 9!
