The home economics activity welcomed us with open arms. The s2 students were putting their sense of smell and taste to the test. Scents such as almond, lemon and coffee were used. They wanted to find out how well they could recognise the foods they were smelling. They enjoyed the experience because it was interesting being able to decipher the different smells even though they couldn’t see what it actually was. Later on, they will be taste testing jellies, we’ll be back Home Ec!
We spoke to Sophie, who was enthusiastic about the challenge, she told us that “it is harder than it looks, but it has encouraged me to take home economics.” Another participant, when asked, told us that the best part was “eating in class”
We wanted to take up the challenge ourselves and test our senses, so we joined in and tried a few as well.
