What unique or interesting additions might you use to improve your apple pie recipe?
Year 5 have been busy showing off what they know in their SPAG and Reading booklets this week, and well done to all of them for their hard work on these. As well as this, and more importantly - we have been tasting apple pies! We were analysing the various tastes and textures of a variety of different off the shelf supermarket pies to conduct our own market research. This deliciously fun session will serve to inspire ideas for how we will eventually be planning our own tweaked recipes when we bake our own apple pies.
