In German, the Year 9 boys have been making Kaiserschmarren which are from Austria. Kaiserschmarren are a mix between pancakes and waffles and are really quite delicious. They are best served with icing sugar, pureed apple and cream. The boys did fabulously and really embraced the challenge - it was great to be away from the screens and to do something a little bit different.
Years 10 - 12 in German have done the German Quiz Challenge which was organised by the Goethe Institute. It is an interactive quiz, which saw the boys working individually for the 'focus' phase, accessing reading and listening material in German. They then worked together on the 'challenge' phase, answering general knowledge questions based on German-speaking countries. Again, it seemed to work well, the boys enjoyed it and it was a little bit different. Thank you to Danny, Danji and Harrison for the photos.
