Red Nose Day. Thursday we made a fruit flan ready for Red Nose Day. We chopped red fruit for the fruit flan. We were very careful with the knives. Then we added the red quick set gel. We took a piece of flan home. Our families were very pleased with what we had made together.
Red Nose Day we wore an item of red clothing and had a messy hair day. Thank you to our wonderful families we raised £14.03
