Black History Month - learning about Betty Campbell, the first black headteacher in Wales

Betty Campbell was born in Cardiff in 1934. Her mother wanted her to try her very best in school, and she did! She was a very good pupil. In fact, she enjoyed learning so much that she dreamed of becoming a teacher herself. One day, Betty told one of her teachers about her dream.

D+T Breadmaking Project


The children discovered the Fire of London started in a bakery on Pudding Lane on Sunday 2nd September 1666 so we decided we wanted to make bread too. We researched different types of bread and tasted a variety to give us ideas for toppings or ingredients we could mix into the dough. 

The children are learning to write instructions in English using command sentences so they followed the recipe and made the most delicious loaves of bread! We think they look delicious! After tasting our own loaves, the children evaluated and decided what went well and what they'd change next time. Well done Year 2.
