Then yesterday the students deboned and portioned their own chicken and they made chicken bites. some also made a chicken stock. In their forthcoming lessons they will make hunters chicken, chicken wrapped in bacon stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese and spicy buffalo wings from their whole chicken.
Year 10 GCSE students visited the FOOD: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum
It explored how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food.
This exhibition took us on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it posed questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways.
Fabulously informative pack about apprenticeships from #amazingapprenticeships
Last Thursday, 14th June Year 7 and the year team had a wonderful evening at their BBQ to celebrate their first year at St Joan of Arc.
As part of our new Udayan Connect Project, each form class will be connected to a child at Udayan. During a pupil’s time at JOA, they will connect with these children through correspondence and support. We hope that this project will help our own children grow in gratitude for the lives that they have (their material wealth, and also the freedom to live with family) as well as raise much needed funds to enable Udayan continue its work.
Follow the links below to discover more about these children and the Udayan Connect Project:
For more information about Udayan’s mission, JOA’s relationship and to financially support these children please visit joa-udayan.co.uk/sponsor.
