A Spanish speaker in the Design & Technology department is currently trialling the delivery of a food technology module in Spanish and English with some year 7 & 8 pupils. One of the aims of the module is to provide an insight into Spanish culture through the medium of food, the study of school meals and healthy eating. We are excited by the potential benefits and looking forward to developing the initiative further.
