We’re getting in the festive spirit in Year 4. As part of our instructional writing work in English we followed an instructional recipe to make a mince pie. First, we cut out our bases from the pastry before spooning in the delicious mincemeat. The smell of Christmas filled the classroom. We then added a top of star shaped pastry and put our mince pies in the oven to cook. 20 minutes later, they were ready to eat. They were delicious, even the teachers couldn’t resist them.
