To stay away from the screens, today Year 9 were cooking churros in their Spanish class. At the moment they are studying food and part of learning a language is to learn the Hispanic countries culture too.

Year 9 learnt that churros originally came from China, it used to be a long thin bread that they ate.

Portuguese explorers brought it to Spain and then covered them with sugar. In the 1500s, when Spaniards went to South America, they discovered chocolate and made a sauce to eat with the churros. 

The recipe Year 9 followed was in Spanish which meant they had to translate the recipe before they could get started.

This is a great example of how our lessons have evolved whilst in lockdown.
