Year 8 Gifted & Talented Club: Mystery Products

Pupils who have continued to demonstrate outstanding appreciation for the subject are invited to take part in the G&T club. Pupils develop their timing and organisation skills as well as their creativity by making mystery products. Pupils are given a method as they enter the classroom, it is then up to them to find the right ingredients and equipment and get creative without actually knowing what they are making. Each session ends with very different and sometimes very surprising results! Eventually, pupils design mystery products for the group to produce. This opportunity lends itself well to pupils who are autonomous thinkers and learners and helps build confidence and skills. Pupils are given certificates and badges at the end of the 12 week project.
