Forest school

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

Today in Forest School, we used natural resources to make our own Christmas stars! This took a lot of patience from the children, but it was definitely worth it! The end results were great, and we even decorated them with some colour. 


Zopf bread!

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

On Tuesday, the children had a go at making their own Zopf bread. This is a buttery bread from Switzerland that is traditionally eaten on Sundays. We made the bread using our food skills, and then we had to plait the bread to make the intricate detail that Zopf bread has. We then tried the bread and it was delicious!

Bread making

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

On Tuesday, the children had a go at making their own white bread. We used lots of different food skills such as weighing, measuring, kneading and shaping to make our bread. The bread turned out great and we even had a tasting session at the end of the day! It was delicious!
