It was an exciting day for the children in Year Three today as they took part in their very own ‘Bake Off’! The children were each challenged to design their own bread, decide on ingredients and give it a memorable name. They then mixed, kneaded and proofed their dough before the teachers baked them in the oven over lunch. In the afternoon Mr B and Mr Geach were invited to try each and every one of the breads and choose a winner from each class based on presentation, smell, quality and taste. With ninety different and unusual breads to taste it was quite a challenge but eventually Alfie, Tom and Ruby were judged to be the top bakers! Well done to all of the children for creating such interesting tasting breads, we are proud of you all.
Elsewhere Mrs Bowden, Mrs Critoph and Mr B took another group of children from across Years One and Two out of school in order to entertain the residents of two local residential homes with their beautiful singing. The children visited Priory House in the morning and Fairview House in the afternoon and the residents were so impressed with their carols that many clapped along and some even joined in with the singing. The children really made the residents day. well done to all of our singers, we are proud of you!
Meanwhile, there was much fun being had outside in the Forest Friends area as the first of our Foundation and KS1 classes took part in camp fire sessions. Mrs Mellish and Miss Chandler helped the children light the fire and then each class sang Christmas songs whilst drinking hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows.
