Natural talent in the kitchen

Fairlawn Primary School held a Bake Off competition inspired by the theme of nature.  

Every child was invited to bring in a bake and the top six designs from Key Stage 1 and 2 went into a technical challenge. 

Key Stage 1 decorated a cupcake with a ladybird design and Key Stage 2 made stained glass biscuits.  The final winners were Edie in Year 1 and Laura in Year 4. With over 100 entries the bakes were sold at an afterschool sale and made over £350 for Friends of Fairlawn to put back into experiences for the children during the school’s Year of Nature. Robin in Year 4 said: “It was really fun baking all day and now I’m entering the real Junior Bake Off inspired by our Fairlawn one”.  

Teacher Miss Scott, who organised the event,  said:  “The pupils rose to this challenge, showing amazing resilience, imagination and skill. Many thanks to the parents who supported their children at home to bring to life their incredible creations and to the Friends of Fairlawn for supporting the entire project.”
