Last week, our Prep children enjoyed getting into the Royal wedding spirit. In preparation for a Royal wedding ‘Bake-Off’, P4 used their art lesson to design unique cake toppers, followed by lots of measuring in their maths lesson and with the help of Eleanor in the kitchen, they produced some impressive, no ‘soggy bottom’ sponge. The children then had the chance to follow their design brief and decorate their cakes, before presenting them to Mrs Harrison for judging.
