Lympstone Primary School pupils get all romantic
ROMANCE is in the air at Lympstone Primary School as artistic-minded pupils have been making a wedding cake to tie in with their marital studies.
After mastering the skill of making decorative flowers recently, year one pupils have since transferred their creative talents to wedding cakes – in keeping with the class theme of traditional weddings.
Hard-working youngsters from class two have been learning about marriages from other cultures.
The children, helped by their teacher Sian Biddulph, chose to decorate their class cake with the colours of the union jack and to celebrate the imminent royal wedding of Kate and Prince William.
Sian said the pupils were also helped along the way by Jean Harris, a woman well-known locally for making cakes.
“I wanted to get somebody in from the community to help scaffold the children’s learning in creative development.
“The children absolutely loved her and want her to come back.”
