Year 6 pupils were set a challenge to design a cookery apron incorporating one of the recipes that they had made throughout the year. The pupils put their original ideas on paper and chose one of them to scale-up to apron size. They practised on fabric with a variety of wax and felt tip crayons and they set the dye by ironing under fabric. Some of the pupils had not used an iron before and were surprised at how easy they found the task.
When they came to apply their designs to white cotton aprons they had experimented with various ideas and chosen the most suitable. Cup cakes featured quite prominently on many of the aprons with milk shakes also being quite popular. A few pupils were brave enough to draw eggs, chickens, vegetables and burgers; all of which were featured throughout the year. The girls decided that they would like to wear their aprons all day!
