All the girls worked very well in class, excellent effort and commitment shown by all! Maith sibh cailíní! Evaluation on the finished scones must be well detailed and give your honest critique don’t forget use the Evaluation Wordbank! How would you rate them on Come Dine with Me, would they  be a 10/10?
