This week in Oystercatchers we have been learning how to make bread as part of our Design and Technology. We used our literacy experience with instructional texts last term, learned a little about the history of bread-making and how yeast works, and made lots of mess in the classroom mixing the ingredients up! A few children were reluctant to get their hands into the mixture, but once they saw how much fun we were having, everyone had a go.
We watched the bread rise and prove over the course of the morning and all enjoyed a delicious mid-afternoon snack once it was baked. Some of us even took a little extra bread home to give to friends and relatives.
