Crumble Rumble Triumph!
2nd December 2016
Mr Viggers' Yr 5 class were lucky enough to take part in the Crumble Rumble - part of the One Tree Per Child education programme - at Ashton Court. They worked in small teams to create their own apple crumble recipe.
The team who made the winning apple crumble were invited back to Ashton Court, along with teams from five other schools, for an inter-schools Crumble Rumble. Each team re-created their winning crumble recipe and, whilst the crumbles were in the oven, the children helped to plant trees in an orchard, enjoyed a tree trail with Bristol's 'Mr Tree', Richard Bland, a talk from Mark the Ranger about the Ashton Court deer AND watched a deer feed at close quarters... with some very feisty stags!
When they were ready, the crumbles were judged by a panel including Charlie James, Head Chef at The River Cottage Canteen and... guess what?
That means that apple crumble made to the Hillcrest team's recipe will be on sale in the cafes at Ashton Court and Blaise Castle!
AND they've won a trip to Bristol Zoo for their whole class!
There's a great report about the event in
