English & History
Today you are going to write the penultimate paragraph of your non-chronological report, but I am giving you some freedom relating to who you can choose. Of course, it will need to be a Tudor, but it can be the Tudor monarch that interests you the most. Will you choose young boy-King Edward or Bloody Mary? Make sure you get lots of interesting facts to hook in your reader and make sure your sentences are worthy of your year 6 skills!
Enjoy researching and writing, and make sure you proofread it after to check you are happy with it!
Today’s Maths is Lesson 13:

Are you up for a bit of Tudor baking today because I have the recipe and method for some Tudor Wafer Biscuits? The recipe is medieval with a few modern tweaks – the only problem is you may have to keep them under lock and key…
Plain Flour 8oz
Unsalted Butter 4oz
Thick Cream 3 teaspoons
Golden Syrup 3 large tablespoons
Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl, add the salt and rub in the butter. When the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, add the cream and the golden syrup. You may need to add a little extra flour to remove some of the stickiness. Don't even try to roll it out, it'll just stick everywhere. The dough should come away from the side of the bowl easily, but if manipulated, the stickiness will come back. Mould into the desired shape. Place on a non-stick (but not greased!) baking tray in a pre-heated oven at gas mark 2 for 20 minutes, until the biscuits start to go a golden-brown colour. Leave to cool (if you can!) then enjoy.
These biscuits will retain their freshness for up to a week if kept in the fridge.
