CHILDREN from Boston Spa got a treat when they were asked to make ice cream as part of their latest project.

Key Stage 2 pupils were given the challenge of making the ice cream as part of their Design Technology lessons at St Edward’s Catholic Primary School.

The children researched, designed and made ice cream and the winning entries were judged by Jayne Stoker, owner of Moo cafe on Boston Spa High Street.

The two winning entries were “Haribo Happiness” – a combination of Haribo sweets and vanilla ice cream, and “Millionaire’s Madness”, a combination of millionaire shortbread, caramel and vanilla ice cream.

Mia Steele, a primary school teacher at the school who helped organise the project, said: “The children really enjoyed it and they got to know what was involved by researching, designing and making the ice cream, using their creative skills.

“They gained a valuable insight into the process of making ice cream, using various research methods and questionnaires.”

The two flavours of ice cream made by the children will now be sold at Moo Cafe in Boston Spa at Easter.

Jayne Stoker, owner of Moo cafe, said: “I couldn’t decide between the two winning ice creams so I picked both.

“I think the Haribo ice cream will appeal to children and the Millionaire’s Madness ice cream to adults. It was good to see the children working in teams and the thought process behind it was very creative for them.”
