Year 2 Make Medieval Gingerbread!

As part of our Literacy and Topic lessons, year 2 have been learning about ‘Medieval Norwich.’ We followed a recipe to make medieval gingerbread and then wrote a set of instructions explaining what we did. We left the gingerbread to set and enjoyed trying it in the afternoon. We thought it was different to the gingerbread we would normally eat, but it still tasted good!

Here is the recipe for you to use at home.


A tablespoon of warm honey
A mug of breadcrumbs
A pinch of ground ginger
A pinch of cinnamon


  1. Warm up the honey.
  2. Add the ginger and cinnamon spices and stir.
  3. Stir in the breadcrumbs a dessert spoonful at a time, until you have a sticky dough.
  4. Mould the dough into balls.
  5. Leave in the fridge to set for 60 minutes.

6. Enjoy your medieval treat!

A Healthy Smoothie

As part of topic work this half term Year 2 have been looking at how to keep healthy and what makes a balanced meal. The children have designed their own balanced meal and sorted foods into food groups, they also made their own healthy berry smoothies.

You could try to make the smoothie too. You could add other fruits to create a unique version!


Gruffalo Crumble


As part of Book Week ‘Animals,’ Year 2 made Gruffalo Crumble. We touched and smelt the vegetables and helped to put the vegetables into the bowl. We waited for it to cool down before we ate it and the teachers were so impressed with how many children tried it and enjoyed it!
