- Peregrines got busy in class this week, constructing models of Tudor townhouses which we will use in our reconstruction of the Great Fire of London.

- On Friday, Peregrines got their cooking aprons on for some Christmas baking, to make puff pastry mince pies. We cut out discs from the puff paste, dampened them with water to make them stick, and then placed a teaspoon of mincemeat filling inside, before sealing the lid on each pie. We crimped around the edge […]
