Giant conga ends 2016 in style
Published on: 21 Dec 2016
PUPILS at Barley Close Primary School celebrated the festive season in unique style.
First they took part in a whole school congo which followed a staff rendition of the 12 days of Christmas which included 11 dancing teachers and five throwing snowballs.
Then Year 6 added a twist to their maths by taking part in a festive bake off. Pupils had to work out the ingredients needed for their technical challenge of making apple or mince pies from scratch, including the pastry.
Headteacher Jo Williams and teacher Alison King had the tough job of being Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood and were happy to report there were no soggy bottoms and a great bake was achieved by all.
Class teacher Hazel Popel said: "This technical challenge really stretched Year 6. They had to make the pies from scratch, making them not only look and taste great but also required them to use their mathematical skills. This Bake Off has really made the curriculum come alive and helped them learn a valuable life-skill."
