Baking Bread

As part of our class topic ‘Planet Food’, we  have been learning about many of the everyday products that are made from wheat. Pupils followed the stages of the grain chain (farming, harvesting, milling, baking) and watched video clips of real farmers and millers at work. The children were amazed at how many loaves of bread are turned out every day in the factory. We then made our own bread rolls. Our classroom became a mini bread factory for the day and with so much dough, we ended up with lots and lots of rolls. The whole corridor smelled of freshly baked bread. They were delicious, and were definitely given the thumbs up by the class. Yum! Yum!
