I have been chosen to represent the Lancs branch of the SLA in Belfast. I have booked my flights and chosen my optional sessions on the Saturday so can't wait.

World Book Day

To celebrate WBD we took part in a reading activity called Recipe for Reading. Each progress group had a pack of recipes from Let's Get Cooking and were able to read and swap them. My favourite is the banana and mango smoothie.
When we have finished with them in class we can bind and laminate them for use in the cookery clubs.
