 Information to gain a good grade for both electives: Please read each task in your assignment carefully. The task will have a set of bullet points that must be completed. The usual terminology used is: You will need to include, You will need to complete... There are three mark bands. The wording used in each mark band is slightly different that gives guidance to how students will be awarded points. The students have a copy of the full assessment sheet for more clarification. Note -If a student completed all the tasks but they only illustrate a basic understanding/ lack of effort the student could fall into MB1. To move up the mark bands the student needs to show Sound (good) knowledge/ understanding or Comprehensive (detailed) knowledge/ understanding of the given task.

Activities: Culture of England

  • Remember to send me your Operation Dynamo news article tomorrow - 3rd April.
  • British Bake Off. I am going to post you some English recipes starting off with a Lemon Drizzle Cake. Please let me know if you do not have the ingredients. I will do my best to make the recipes as minimal on ingredients as possible. Once you have baked the cake, take a photo of it and send to me. Part of your challenge is to convert from English measuring scales to American.

Ingredients – Lemon or Orange Drizzle Cake

· 175g caster sugar

· 175g self-raising flour (to make self-raising flour add 1tsp of baking powder to every 100g of normal flour)

· 175g softened butter

· 3 eggs

· Finely grated zest of 1 lemon

· ¾ level tsp baking powder

· For The Lemon Drizzle Topping

· 100g sugar

· Juice of 1 lemon

· Special Bakeware / Equipment

· Electric whisk

· A traybake or roasting, greased and lined


· Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas 4. Beat together the eggs, flour, caster sugar, butter, baking powder and lemon zest until smooth in a large mixing bowl and turn into the prepared tin.

· Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 40 mins, or until golden brown, shrinking away from the sides of the tin and springy to the touch.

· While the cake is still warm, make the lemon drizzle topping. Mix together the sugar and lemon juice, and pour over the warm cake. Leave to cool a little and loosen the sides of the cake, then lift the cake out of the tin.
