This year, we decided to combine our enthusiasm for baking with our passion for fundraising.
Each class held a Bake-Off competion in Term 4. Children were invited to make 6 cupcakes, using a recipe provided by Comic Relief, and to decorate them with a Red Nose Day theme.
To raise money, each baker paid an entry fee, and all the cakes were sold at the end of the school day.
You can see all of the entries below.
From the six class winners in Years 5 and 6, judges had the difficult task of choosing three bakers to represent Henleaze Junior School in the NW24 Bake-Off challenge at Christchurch Primary School in Clifton. After much deliberation, Hollie, Erin and Caitlin were selected to form the HJS team.
On 12th March, the HJS bakers went to Christchurch armed with their secret recipe for apple and raisin cookies. During the afternoon, not only did they make their biscuits and present them for judging, but they also got to know the competitors from Hotwells, St John's and Elmlea Juniors. The children and accompanying staff members then scored the cookies for taste and presentation. HJS were delighted to achieve the highest score of the afternoon, but in truth, all the biscuits were fantastic and the competitors all did themselves proud. We look forward to sharing the recipes in due course.
