Baking bread in Year 2

This half term, Year 2 have been learning about The Great Fire London. In Design and Technology, we explored different bread products and made comments about the designs.

This week Year 2 baked bread! As the fire started in a bakery…. why not make some bread?

We followed a recipe ( which is part of our English unit of Instructions), measured the ingredients and kneaded the dough.

We then planned our designs and thought about what we would need to make bread. We then turned both classrooms into a bakery! Finally we got to taste the bread and write up an evaluation. This year the bread was much softer inside. 

It was a fantastic ‘hands on’ experience – literally – and the result couldn’t be tastier!
