Cross-School Bake Off

1st February 2018

This morning, a selection of star bakers from Year 5/6 took part in a cross-school 'Bake-Off' hosted by Christ Church Primary. It was a fantastic morning, full of team work, skill and fun, and, although the competition was fierce, we won!

The children's thyme and lemon curd biscuits were judged by a professional baker from Anna Bakery in Clifton and she felt that our unusual flavour combination and excellent branding were the best in show.

Well done to Hal, Bella and Esme!



On Thursday 1st February, Christ Church hosted a fantastic baking competition – the inaugural NW24 Big Bake. 

The teams gradually arrived for the morning session, carrying their special and top secret ingredients. It was clear from the faces that the bakers were nervous, but raring to go.

The recipe was revealed; a simple biscuit recipe. Concentration, teamwork and smiles were required. The teams got to work mixing their ingredients, rolling out their dough and cutting the shapes (using their special cutters). We had our expert baker and judge on hand – Amy from Anna Couture – to guide the novices. The teams had ‘Help’ cards available to ask for adult help. Teams were super lucky to have Amy as that adult support.

Whilst the biscuits were in the oven, teams decorated their biscuit boxes and branded their biscuits. The finished article was set to cool, placed on display and awaiting the taste buds of our guest judge. All teams worked exceptionally well, but there could be only one winner in each session.

The event was a wonderful success. Thanks to the adults who helped practise with their children and who brought the teams to Christ Church. A big thank you goes to Amy from Anna Couture for her expertise. And above all, well done to our star bakers – they were all wonderfully behaved and competed with smiles on their faces.

Kindest regards
