We had the opportunity to mix ingredients together to make bread and use techniques such as kneading and rolling. We decorated our bread with raisins or seeds and then had a taster session. We wrote down what we could see, smell and taste. We also learnt how important a balanced diet is and what types of foods we need to keep healthy.

For World Book Day we retold the story of the BFG, recreated a scene using role play and then made dream jars. Take a look!

In our English lesson we made Easter Egg Cornflake Cakes and then wrote instructions about how we made them. We had lots of fun (especially when we got to eat them!)

Trip to Bolton Museum!
