Usually at this time of the year our Y6 pupils enjoy a leavers service at Newcastle Cathedral where they celebrate everything they have achieved and look ahead to the future. It is a great opportunity to meet with pupils from other schools and the Diocese felt that it would be a shame for our pupils to miss out completely on this special service due to the pandemic. They have created a service online for our Y6 pupils to enjoy.

Hope everyone is safe and working hard from home! Thought it would be easier to bake something with less ingredients this week so here is a recipe for shortbread biscuits. Don't worry if they come out of the oven and are still a bit soft. They will harden as they cool! Hope you all enjoy!

I know the ingredients might be hard to come by so I will be looking to add some other recipes later with simpler ingredients! Hope you all enjoy and staying safe!!

I've just realised I didn't mention anything on how oo actually bake them! I had them in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes!
