Bread Making

By Peter (5DM)


In Year 5 we are learning about bread in D.T.  We learned about different kinds of bread and the yeast.


In our first lesson, we were learning about the yeast.  In the Victorian era, a scientist discovered that is was a living organism that reproduces and multiplies when it gets warm.  It eats sugar and excretes Carbon Dioxide. We tasted four different types of bread: naan, tortilla, pitta and brioche, in our second lesson and on Tuesday, we finally got to make some ourselves. It was really good fun and Mrs Parratt helped us a lot!


On Wednesday, we tasted our bread and we felt very proud of ourselves- it was really good!
