On 9th September there was a transition day for the new Year 12s who have recently moved up from Year 11.
Both Year 12 and Year 13 were split into teams to participate in an activity, the task was to shape, design and make a brand of bread complete with packaging. Since both years were mixed up it created a great opportunity to talk and work with people that we might not have spoken to before.
Coming up with ideas for the logo, shape, brand name and packing was a lot of fun to do because it got everyone in the team involved and it was fun to see people coming up with interesting ideas. By the end of the day you got to know the people in your team a little bit better than you did at the start of the day. Having the activity be a competition was also a great idea for motivation because everyone was very competitive.
One of the most interesting parts of the day was the end as you got to see the end product of each teams, which included alphabet bread where you could spell your name; loafers which were bread slippers for making sandwiches; a crown, as it was the same day that the Queen became the longest-reigning British monarch, as well as many more. It was surprising to see how many different and unique ideas people came up with for their bread company.
The other exciting part was to see which team won the competition, each team had to do a presentation in front of the judges as well as receive a vote from the audience which would contribute to their overall score. In the end the winning bread was the tetris bread which was bread shaped into tetris blocks so you could play with them.
Overall the day was a huge success and everybody really enjoyed themselves.
