Year 5 D&T week - day 1 elderflower cordial

This week a year 5 are embarking on a foraging adventure making food and drink from the world around us. Luckily, we have an abundance of elderflower trees on the school premises so the children were able to forage plenty to make their cordial using water, sugar and lemon. The children were able to identify the flowers from their strong scent and the way they grow on a woody branch. The children grated and sliced the lemons and measured the water and sugar bringing the mixture to a boil on the hob.
