Last week, Year 4 baked coconut pyramids. These are a traditional Jewish sweet treat eaten at the festival of Passover. This festival celebrates the freedom of the Israelites from the Egyptians. The pyramids are a reminder of the pyramids that Jewish people used to build in Egypt. Their sweet flavour, from the coconut, is a reminder that they were set free from slavery.
Despite many initial comments of ‘I don’t like coconut’, all children tried their creations and were pleasantly surprised! They also really enjoyed designing their own pyramids, thinking about what ingredients they would add to the mixture and what sauces/toppings they could drizzle over the top.
