Year 6 Spring: Nations at War

This term's text


By Michael Morpurgo

Design Technology

This week, the children in school used a World War 1 recipe to create some Trench cakes.  The ingredients were slightly different to what we would normally include in our cakes, for example vinegar, but all of the children agreed that they didn’t taste as bad as they thought they would!  We shared pictures of our creations with Mrs Williams and she challenged us to make an M&S style advert to persuade her to make them herself and try them.  The children all worked together to create the advert and the Year 6 Team are incredibly proud of their work!  Enjoy 😊
