Home Learners: Design technology: Foodie Friday!!!

My favourite day of the week, with my favourite task of the week! Get creative in the kitchen! Knock up a snack, as sweet treat, a healthy meal...whatever you fancy. Can you try to make something that involves careful measuring of ingredients (e.g. weighing/ capacity of liquids). Can’t wait to see some of your fabulous creations. Channel your inner chef/ bake-off contestant…(Extra bonus points may be awarded if you clean up after you too!)

 

School Learners: Make a laurel wreath

The Roman general Julius Caesar wore a wreath of laurel on the head to show that he was a powerful and strong leader. 

Have a go at creating your own laurel wreath. Think about what materials you can use to make it out of (e.g. paper, card, wire, real leaves….)

I’d love to see you modelling your laurel wreath creations!
