Year 5 have been learning about food produced on an allotment and on a farm. As part of this topic, we researched which ingredients are found both on a farm and an allotment that would be used to bake bread.
Before we could bake our own bread we had to carry out some 'market research' during which we tasted different types of bread and discussed the ingredients, the taste, and the texture of these breads. The basic ingredients were the same, but each group decided that they would add something different to their bread. Other ingredients that we used included: Syrup, chocolate and fruit.
