Brilliant burger

As part of our theme “America” we made burgers. Firstly we tasted a myriad of sauces, cheeses and salads to see which combination was our favourite. We loved most of the different sauces (although for most of us mustard was not our favourite!)

From this, we designed four burgers that we would make and decided on our favourite design.

Next came the fantastic part-making!

For some of us it was our first time handling raw meat which was an experience (for some not a pleasant one!) We measured and rolled the burgers. As they were cooking, we prepared our burger bun by stacking it with all our best ingredients.

Finally it was time for our favourite part…. To devour our delicious burgers! Overall, it was a fantastic day and we will all definitely be making our own burgers in future now we know how easy it is.

This afternoon we had three important visitors: two real life Crime Scene Investigators and a PCSO! We pretended to be part of their team on a burglary. We took our fingerprints, footprints and looked at the DNA from the scene ! In the end the culprit turned out to be Miss Bolton! We had such a fantastic time-some of us think it is our new career choice.

After studying her work, we copied a few pieces in our sketch books before creating our own op art to display ready to show our parents!
