The workshop will be followed by a …

As part of our topic about ‘Ourselves’ the children designed and made their own face biscuits today.  They had to think carefully about which coloured sweets to put on to match their facial features and also where on their faces each part should go.  It was great to see super spreading skills with the icing …
