As the children have been learning all about the ‘Little Red Hen’ they made bread just like she did in the story. The children looked at wheat sheafs and then used the ingredients to make bread rolls.
The children cam up with ways to describe the dough such as: sticky, soft, gooey, smooth and they said you need to have muscles to be able to mix it!
We then had to wait for the bread to grow bigger before we could put it in the oven. We rolled it into bread rolls and then cooked it in the oven.

Reception have had lots of fun today learning how to make bread. The children learned how the dough has to rest and get bigger before they can knead and shape it. The children first washed their hands before starting and then used the palms of their hands to stretch, roll and manipulate the dough. Some of the children were surprised how sticky the dough was! The children then made bread rolls, plaited the bread and created a small loaf which was to be cooked and served to the children in school this week.
