Year 8 Food Technology pupils take part in a ‘Bush Tucker Trial’

This week has seen brave Year 8 pupils taking part in an “I’m a celebrity get me out of here!” challenge.  

Pupils have explored sustainable proteins and as part of their work they have taste tested edible insects. On the menu were meal worms, crickets, locusts and buffalo worms. Jack Evans and Connor Ashcroft were the bravest of them all and tried the massive locusts!

Ms Powell comments:

The students thoroughly enjoyed this lesson and were very brave trying the new foods. They gained an insight into customs and cultures from around the world and they were able to learn about protein sources in a fun way.
