Working Hard, Trying our Best, Having Fun




A visit from Mr Swarbrick (Chair of Governors), who judged the winner for our Crab Apple Jelly. He bought a jar and added extra money into our Children In Need fund raising pot.

Of course, we had to put the syrup through a rigorous testing procedure before any jars were donated to the community. Didn’t we?

The children clearly took a lot of persuading to help out.  Look at their faces as they are ‘HAVING’ to do the boring part of the process.

The Finished Product (plus a rival in our midst)

Boiling, Straining & Separating


Equipment & Ingredients


See the School Videos section of the website to find videos of some of us sharing persuasive advertisements.  If that doesn't persuade you to eat our jelly, then I don't know what will. 

Presenting our Crab Apple Jelly to the kitchen and Barn Owl.

Following the success of the crumble, we again showed our co-operation and togetherness by making a scrumptious Crab Apple Jelly.


With the support of Mr Walton, Mrs Eccles & Mr Wallis, we combined science and food technology to prepare, strain and cook the liquid, which eventually turned into a jelly.


It is delicious with cooked meats, roast dinners, cheese and crackers, on toast and with a whole range on sweet meals. 


Have a look through our gallery.


As part of our TOGETHERNESS TOPIC, we showed how we could work and co-operate as a team by making a delicious mixed fruit crumble for our fellow pupils.


Mr Wallis and Mrs Davies teamed up with the usual Y6 staff members to help us on our way:


-we picked;

-we prepared;

-we cooked!


We knew just how much people loved it with the smiles on the faces of the pupils and the staff.


The only problem... everyone was too full up to concentrate in the afternoon!!!


Have a look of the photos of us on the job.  REMEMBER TO CHECK OUT THE SCHOOL VIDEOS SECTION (under the children section) TOO!
