Thomas a Becket Junior Fairtrade Bake Off

Tue 3 May 2016

The annual Fairtrade Becket Biscuit Bake Off was held at Thomas A Becket Junior School on Friday 11th March 2016. The purpose of the event was to promote Fairtrade Fortnight and to encourage children to bake using Fairtrade ingredients. There were many entries and the best 8 were chosen to compete in the final.

Competition was fierce. All teams produced a lovely batch of biscuits using Fairtrade ingredients such as bananas, sugar, chocolate and cocoa powder.

Sir Peter Bottomley, MP for Worthing West, visited the school to speak with some children about their Fairtrade work and judge the bake off. He then met with 'Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood', (alias two year 5 pupils) in the Cooking and Nutrition room. The biscuits were judged on appearance and taste. It was very close. All the biscuits were beautifully presented and tasted delicious.

Congratulation to the two Year 6 pupils who won the bake off and received a Fairtrade goody bag.

A huge well done to them and everyone who took part.
