GCSE D&T Papermill Trip

GCSE D&T pupils visited Frogmore Papermill. They had the opportunity to make their own piece of handmade paper, understand printing processes and explore the oldest working papermill in the world with a very cold tour round the mill.

 

Last week our Year 10 GCSE students visited ‘Butler and Sons’ butchers on New Road Croxley Green

Steve Butler kindly demonstrated how to debone and portion a whole chicken. Thank you

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.

Year 7 BBQ

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.

UDAYAN CONNECT PROJECT

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:
