On Tuesday we held our first ever Bake-Off competition! The participation from the children and their adults-at-home was incredible and we received a range of culinary delights which were a feast for the eyes and for our bellies!

The Bake-Off was part of our Design & Technology curriculum where children were asked to research a recipe for a baked or unbaked dessert of their choice. The children researched their chosen recipe independently and created a recipe card for their item which they then took home and used to purchase the ingredients required to bake their delicious treat.

 

The effort, creativity and care taken to create and bake their item was outstanding and we received an array of sweet treats spanning mint-chocolate fudge, freshly baked scones, Greek, Cypriot, Czech, Polish and Spanish national desserts, carrot cake, sponge-cakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, cookies, home-made milkshake, fridge-baked cheesecake, Eton-Mess and exploding confetti cake just to mention a few!

The children brought their items to school and placed them on display in the Year 6 classroom and our panel of Judges were invited to taste-test the items throughout the course of the day. The items were anonymised and judges were asked to choose their top 5 items based on taste, effort and presentation.

After a long (and delicious!) day of tasting the the points were added up and the winners were announced. The judges noted that it was incredibly difficult to choose a favourite item as there so many outstanding entries!

Many parents communicated that it was nice to spend family time with their child baking and decorating so its wonderful to hear that the activity was enjoyed by both adults and the children.

Well done to everyone who took part and a huge thank you to parents and carers for enabling the children to participate in the event; we really couldn’t have done it without you and we hugely appreciate your support in making the day a success!

Congratulations to our winners:

1st place: Ollie Smith and Terelle Baker

2nd place: Lilah McGranaghan

3rd place: Stanley Duffield and Shaye Brady

Everyone who participated will receive a prize on Friday!
