Making bread.

During our topic of The Great Fire of London, we learnt that the fire started in a bakery on Pudding Lane. On Friday we made bread. To make the bread we had to follow instructions carefully to make sure it was right. First, we washed our hands to make sure they were clean. Next, we put the bread mix in a bowl and measured the water in a measuring jug. Then, we added the water to the bread mix. We had to get our hands in the mixture to mix it together. Our mixture got quite sticky so we had to had more water. Then, it got too runny so we added more flour. We then left the bread mix to rest over lunchtime. When we got back the mixture had risen. We talked about what had happened and we said it looked like it had blown up. We then had a ball of the mixture each to knead and roll out ourselves. We then rolled this into a ball to form our bread roll. Miss Porter took the balls of dough to the oven. She put them in the oven and had to wait 15 minutes. Whilst she was waiting she watched over the bread and realised it had started to burn. This was because Martin had put the oven on to heat up and he had actually put on the grill. Oh no! Miss Porter and a group of children had to put the rolls back in the oven and cook them again. When they finally arrived back to the classroom with the bread rolls we all cheered. They bread smelt yummy. We then got to eat our own bread roll. We said it tasted ‘delicious’, ‘scrumptious’ and ‘amazing’.
