Bread Making

Who will help me knead the bread?

This week we made some bread just like the Little Red Hen did. We looked closely at the flour and observed how sticky it became as we added water to it to make the dough. We watched how to knead the bread and then had a go ourselves. It was very sticky and gooey. We broke our dough into two and shaped them into balls. We talked about how the bread needed to rest and prove so that the yeast could make the bread rolls bigger. After a short while we baked the bread and then let it cool ready to take home. We also tasted some wholemeal bread and found different words to say whether or not we liked the taste. We came up with words like 'tasty', 'yummy', delicious', one child said it reminded them of their Nan's special bread.
