Bread Bake Off!

Year 5 have investigated a variety of breads including: baguette, pitta, naan, soda, sourdough, granary and chapatti. They were evaluated according to characteristics such as taste and texture. The baguette was a clear favourite and sourdough was by far the least popular.

The children also learnt how bread products are an important part of a balanced diet.

Then came the first baking week and as a class, we made a basic white loaf. They learned about the different ingredients- why and how they are included, and the basic techniques for making and shaping the dough.

The children then designed their own bread roll for an event; including additional ingredients and the shape of their choice.

The smell of baking bread drifted around the school making the children VERY hungry.

Voila! A delicious, fresh and perfectly baked bread roll.

Nura said “My bread was soft and fluffy inside.”

Peter shared his with his family, “They all said it was delicious.”
