The king has looked at your work and is mightily pleased. He has said that some of you are worthy of being taken on in his kitchens as spit boys and in a few years that you might be able to work your way up to Head Cook status (except Euan, who on the cover of ‘Tudor Food for Dummies’ said he was a “Tudor Culinary Expert” – the King says Euan’s in charge of the washing up!)

Birthday Thanks


Cheers Georgia!

Thank you to everyone at Bridgewater that made my birthday such fun. I’ve always had a birthday during half term. This is the first ever one I’ve had at school and with the concert that night I’ve NEVER had so many people wish me ‘Happy Birthday’ before.

Thanks to Georgia for the mug. I’m using it now while I write your reports!
