Make a sandwich!

As part of your holiday homework Mr Connolly wants you to make a sandwich and write instructions on how to make it.  But rather than bring in them in you can e-mail your instructions as a picture and even a picture of your sandwich!

It doesn’t have to be a jam sandwich…  You could make a healthy one – BUT these would be new words the bot would need!
