Creepy Crawlies... insect workshop

 I thought I would share with you a few of the insects that a year 5 group make with me this afternoon in a sculpture workshop.  We used pieces of driftwood, wire and old screws and nails.

 I was really pleased with how it went, and the insects they created were fabulous.  I'm looking forward to next weeks session with another group.

What do you think?

Have your cake... and eat it!

I haven't had much time this summer for baking (which is a good thing because if it's there you eat it!!!), but after catching some of The Great British Bake Off earlier in the week, I thought I would share some of this summers bakes with you.

On went one of my lovely halterneck pinnies, you need a pinny when you are baking, especially if it is with children!

I had a couple of birthday cakes to make.  The Fairy's at the beginning of the summer...

... and The Tinkers at the end!

Sails for the Pirate Galleon, courtesy of my hubby, oh and he did the weapon and pirate positioning too!!!

Baking with the children included this very scrummy apple and blackberry pie, made with blackberries the children had collected.  

And a delicious tart I made with The Fairy to take as a pudding to my mum and dads.

Yum, yum, yum!

Have you made anything good?
