Cookery linked to the history of our town

When the children have been historians they have been researching all about Clive of India. We found out lots on interesting information all about Clive and the links to the food sources he brought back from India. Within D&T we made gingerbread biscuits. We discussed what skills we needed to ensure we made a high quality product and reinforced all our measures vocabulary we had previously explored when preparing our biscuits. We each took a biscuit home and thought they tasted great!


As designers the children have explored how to create a running stitch using the embroidery frames. They initially found this a little tricky but they persevered and collaborated with their learning partners and all enjoyed learning this new skill!
