Afternoon Tea Sandwich Making

Afternoon Tea Sandwich Making

As part of our Erasmus project Year 2 learnt about the history of Afternoon Tea. It began in 1840 when a member of the Royal Family needed a sandwich at 4pm because she was hungry.  Today people enjoy afternoon tea as a celebration treat. Year 2 made their own sandwiches.

In science Year 2 planned and carried out an investigation to test which paper would make the best blinds in a dolls house. The children decided to hold the paper up to the light, if it blocked the light out, they knew this would make a good blind.
