Completed recipe books ready to be share with our International friends

Children in Year 5 and Year 6 have chosen their favourite traditional British recipes and with  the help of friends and family have compiled a recipe book to share with our International friends in Spain, France, Mexico and Cambodia. We are hoping to receive some recipes from our international schools so we are able to share these with our families and even prepare some of their traditional dishes at school.

French Recipe Book has arrived!

We were delighted to receive over 30 recipes from our penpals and link school in France.

These recipes will be shared with all the children and copies of each recipe will made available for children to try at home. During our French lessons in Summer Term we will be trying out some of the recipes for ourselves.
