This week we have been celebrating all things Fairtrade as a Rights Respecting School, with pupils shopping for fairtrade items in the supermarket as well as at our tuck shop.
This afternoon we have held a very special fairtrade bake-off event.
Classes have been busy all week planning and making delicious baked items to enter into the bake-off competition - each item had to have at least one fairtrade ingredient!
There was a fantastic range of cakes, muffins, biscuits and more - a chocolate marble sponge decorated with the fairtrade logo, a vegetarian white chocolate and strawberry cheesecake, Minion sponges and a Mucky Ducky chocolate cheesecake to name a few - check out the amazing pictures below!
Our wonderful kitchen staff along with deputy Vicki channelled Mary Berry, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood to decide which were the best items.
Prizes were awarded as follows:
Tastiest - Class 5 with a chocolate & banana loaf containing 5 fairtrade ingredients Healthiest - A9 with a flapjack containing fairtrade bananas and gluten free oats Most attractive looking - Class 6 with their cake-pop bouquets Most creative/ unusual - A9 with their spectacular 4 layer ‘World and beyond’ theme cake decorated with space fairtrade chocolate exploding rocks, shooting stars and asteroids!
Classes then got a sample of all the lovely things back in classes for everyone to try - no-one will need any tea tonight!
A big thank you to everyone involved for their talent, creativity and enthusiasm - it was a brilliant bake-off and made us all think about fairtrade ingredients.
The children had a great time making all the baked items and enjoyed trying each other’s entries. Thanks to the kitchen team and teacher Alison Bury for making the event such a success.
