Class Experience

Students will be able to make Welsh cakes using a traditional British recipe.  They will know the four countries of the British Isles, will recognise the Union Jack flag and the Welsh flag, and know a few facts about the UK in general and Wales in particular.
Just in case your Welsh cakes aren't fully cooked in the class, you can finish cooking them afterwards.

Oh yes, remember to share them with your family and friends!
