Session Descriptions

 

Quiz Night with the Wilkins

What?  A Quiz evening of 4 rounds of general knowledge with some movie questions, music questions and also some UK and world Landmarks.

Have some fun and pit your wits against other students.

There may even be a prize!!

  

Baking with Hazel

Learn how to make SCONES, the UK’s favourite “high tea” snack (and enjoy eating them!) Follow along with Hazel simultaneously to bake your own batch of scones. It’s easy!

You will need access to a kitchen, cooking utensils and oven.

Before the session you will need to purchase/obtain the ingredients, Have ingredients and equipment ready. Wash your hands! Set oven to 200oC.

(The secret to good scones is to have the oven hot and roll out quickly)

Equipment:

  • Mixing bowl,
  • Baking tray (if not non-stick then also use parchment paper),
  • Kitchen weighing scales or spoon measures
  • Measuring jug, (you could manage with a cup it’s for mixing together the egg and milk)
  • Rolling pin (you can use a bottle),
  • 5cm/2in fluted cutter (but you could use an upturned glass)
  • pastry brush (optional)

Ingredients:

  • 225g/(8oz) self-raising flour
  • 1 level teaspoon of baking powder
  • 25g/(1oz) caster sugar (you could use ordinary sugar but the finer caster sugar is better)
  • 50g/(2oz) butter or margarine (in a block not the spread)
  • 1 medium egg
  • a little milk
  • (a small handful of sultanas is an extra option if you want to make “fruit scones”)
  • Butter and/or your favourite jam to spread onto the scones once cooked and cooled!

NB: I am assuming you all use metric measures but in case you prefer imperial measures they are provided in brackets.

 

Yin yoga classes (also for beginners)

Let’s stretch our bodies & calm our minds in Christmas vibes! Let’s get ready for 2021!
Why: 

  • Reduce the stiffness in the shoulders, lower & upper back, and neck
  • Gain more energy and reduce stress levels
  • Create more clarity and focus on increased productivity

Tips:

  • No need to have experience with yoga
  • No need to have mats and props
  • Make sure that you have 2 blankets/towels and 1-2 books to use as props
  • Wear comfortable clothes
  • Better not to eat later than 2 hours prior to the session
