Please come along for tea/coffee, biscuits and maybe even a cake or two, from 9.05am for an hour or so.

Come and discuss ideas over a cup of tea/coffee on Friday 20th March.

All the best,

Wrapped up!

This week in Year 3/4 Cookery, our super chefs have been learning about where food comes from. We made healthy wholemeal salmon or tuna wraps, packed with cucumber and thinly sliced lettuce.

Rolling the wraps was quite tricky, but everyone managed to take two home!
