Once again thank you to all parents who have made delicious dishes for the" Birches Green Bake Off". It was a huge success.
The dishes presented really did reflect everyday life of traditional family meals. Your support for the children has been so
overwhelming and the children have clearly enjoyed your participation. The winner was a chocalate cheesecake made by Alex and his Mum. Well done everyone.
Many thanks to all the parents and children who attended cooking club this week. It was a great success!!!! The children really benefit from your participation and they all enjoyed tasting the different foods. The variety of foods and cooking skills together with the diversity of different dishes from around the world, clearly demonstrates we have many talented parents. Also many thanks to parents who have sent in photographs of cooking with their children and their recipes.
The winners of each session will take part in the grand final on Tuesday 1st July at 2.30pm. Look forward to seeing you there.
Cooking club is run by Ms Meade, Mrs Haynes and Mrs Skeffington. The sessions are held weekly, after school for children who are invited to attend by the school. The groups change after 3 or 4 weeks so lots of children will get the opportunity to attend!
