Design & technology/Food technology
Making Irish foods, as part of Food technology, is a most popular way of meeting the requirements of the curriculum.
Soda bread and apple cake are the favourites - and in one school Irish breakfasts - but the most ambitious undertaking was the Irish stew prepared by the Nursery children at St Cleopas CE Primary School in Liverpool.
Favourite D&T activities include
making badges and designing T-shirts to commemorate the school’s Irish week;
investigating Irish textiles, such as Aran sweaters and Donegal tweeds;
building St Brendan’s boat and thatched cottages; and
making a dancing leprechaun.
