This year the challenge was Biscuits! Students were given the task to design and make a biscuit using a basic recipe. Students had to draw and label a design, make and decorate the biscuit and evaluate their biscuits at the end of the day. Students were given a choice of flavorings as well a choice of decorations. Decisions had to be made to make either individual biscuits, a whole class biscuit or layered biscuits. Prizes were awarded for the tastiest and the most imaginative biscuits.
Classes worked on the challenge all day with all of key stage 3 in the hall to make the biscuit dough! It was fun but messy! As usual competition was fierce and there was a lot of friendly rivalry and brilliant ideas. Biscuits were made in all sorts of shapes, sizes and themes with some interesting flavours! The staff and students embraced the challenge to come up with some stunning designs. Each class earned a Bake Off#3 wooden spoon with the winning classes earning golden spoons and a box of chocolate biscuits.
This is what each class produced.

Well done ALL, Keep BAKING!!
