The halls have been filled with the smell of Christmas this morning!
The year 1 children have been very busy in Funky Foods. Two weeks ago they made mincemeat, today they made the pastry from scratch and created a mountain of mince pies. They even cleaned up after each other!
They have taken a mince pie and the recipe home with them to make in the run up to Christmas.
