Baking bread

Team Reception have been learning the story of the Little Red Hen who found a grain of wheat and made some bread all by herself. We baked our own bread but we all worked as a team, unlike the animals in the story.

We mixed all the ingredients and then kneaded the dough. It was hard work kneading the dough until it was smooth and stretchy, so we all took it in turns so that nobody would get tired arms. We had to divide the dough into small balls that were all the same size before the dough rested in the staff room and grew in size.

Most of us really liked the fresh bread, although a few children weren’t so sure!
