Group work has included looking at the different ways of preserving and processing food. Here we did The Bouncy Egg Experiment which was a rather smelly occasion. The process of decalcification has been discovered and discussed.

After Assessment Week we will be watching The Sugar movie which is rather thought provoking and makes us all think twice about what we eat.
