8G and 8H always enjoy a baking homework and this is a perfect way to use the German language for real purposes. During the beginning of this half term, our topic was food and baking. Pupils were given the opportunity to learn about traditional German foods and mealtimes in Germany. This included reading a German recipe and following it step by step.
We learnt all about the traditions in Germany. We read that in some parts of Germany, families make cheesecakes (Käsekuchen) to celebrate the 1st May. That was enough for us and we didn’t need to be asked twice to work on perfecting our German cheesecake skills! We used a German recipe and baked many delicious cheesecakes. Some of the girls wanted to try something more elaborate. They found their own German recipes and baked chocolate cakes, square cakes, muffins and cookies. I think you will agree that the results look delicious! Lecker!!
