Cookery Club

We made Nachos with tortilla chips, seasoned mince, lashings of grated cheese and a garnish of chopped tomato, spring onion and jalapenos.

There was enough time to make chocolate chip milkshakes too.

Well, it just had to be pancake making this week!  There was some very professional flipping going on.  For the main course they made a chicken or ham in cheesy sauce filling and for pudding there was a choice of lemon, orange and sugar or chocolate sauce.

Homemade burgers and chips were back by popular demand and wolfed down for supper!

Marble Run:

Theo E and Miles F created a fantastic marble run in Junior Activities Club this week – Theo said he thought a triangular base would be strong and work well. It really proved to be true!

To get us in the mood for Chinese New Year we made some very tasty and authentic looking Stir Fried Beef Noodles.

The children made muffins this week. Some took the healthy option and others went for triple chocolate!

There are some pictures of Melisa A having chopsticks lessons!

There was hardly a spare seat in the room in Classics Club – and that was not just because of preps due in the following day. The children who are there want to be there and are, like the men at the beginning of Gladiator, “lean and hungry” in their Classical pursuits. Anyone who likes to relax after Monday’s jolt to the system with spot of Ancient Greek certainly has something about them..!

Saturdays are very relaxed, with everyone following their own line of enquiry, or just needing a guiding hand through some prep. It is also a forum for less experienced, but still voracious, Latinists to catch up with their peers.

Our recent open-door workshop was fun and, I hope, helpful in terms of understanding the subject and why it has been the mainstay of the curriculum for so long.

Lente, lente ad infinitum..!

Cookery Club:  On Saturday and Wednesday the cooks made Toad in the Hole, with the addition of some smoked pancetta and, in a couple of cases, some jalepeno chilies!  Whilst the “Toad” was cooking on Wednesday they made some lovely, exotic fruit smoothies and on Saturday it was Oreo milkshakes.
