Here at Routes into Languages South we are on the lookout for budding bakers and creative cooks in Year 8 to enter our new Great Languages Bake Off competition!
To enter, pairs of students need to bake some cupcakes following a recipe in either French, German or Spanish. These can be traditional recipes or ones that have been translated. Competitors will then give a (very) short in-class presentation, using as much target language as possible, on how they went about their bake, ready for teachers to judge the best one. Students can bring in samples of their cakes if they think this might help sway the decision!
The winning students as picked by their teacher will then be invited to a Bake Off final at the University of Brighton (Falmer campus) on Thursday 16th July at 1pm. There can be up to two entries per school and those wishing to attend the final will need to complete a registration form and return it by email to Clare Forder no later than Monday 6th July.
On the day, competitors will need to bring in their cupcakes ready for judging! They will also need to submit a poster of their bake (max. A3), including a photo of the finished product and the recipe and ingredients list in the target language. Posters should be submitted by post to arrive at the University of Brighton no later than Monday 13th July so that they can be displayed in advance. Posters will be judged alongside the cakes to find an overall winner per language. Six runner-up prizes will also be awarded.
Please send posters to Clare Forder at:
School of Humanities
The Checkland Building – Room D331
University of Brighton
Overall winning entries will receive a target language cookbook, personalised apron and a baking set. Runners-up will receive a baking set. All entrants will receive a certificate.
