Key stage 3 students experiment with a taste of Spain.
The wider curriculum and life experiences are a huge part of our ethos at BCHS so as part of their RSVP to Success – a list of activities and experiences for our students to try, years 7, 8 and 9 have been tasting different foods from Spanish-speaking countries this week.
The students tried a huge array of foods including Churros, Patatas Bravas, Manchego cheese, olives, prosciutto and Columbian meatballs before completing a review sheet about how they found the tastes and whether they would eat them again. It was great to see the students being brave and tucking in and trying something new.
A quick poll proved, as was probably expected, that the churros were the outright favourite taste, with olives, both black and green, being the most unpopular.
As Walt Disney said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
At BCHS we see it our duty to provide as many paths as possible for our students and love to see them enjoying new experiences.
