This week we were lucky enough to visit the cafe with Mrs Walker and make bread; just like Thomas Farriner would have done in his bakery on Pudding Lane before the fire started.
We washed our hands and made sure that everything was clean, measured the ingredients and got mixing! The most exciting part was obviously, the kneading.
Our new book hook features a boy that uses his knowledge of cooking to outsmart a wolf.
This week we have been inspired by the recipe for “Boy Soup” to make some soup of our own. This time with autumn vegetable, not children…
With the help of Mrs Walker in the children have all had a go at making soup this week. We even had a taste of our soup on Thursday. The soup was warming and delicious, we’re definitely looking forward to writing our own soup recipes next week.
This Wednesday, we visited Mrs Walker in the cafe and tasted different foods from the four countries of the UK. Some children who have shown fantastic ‘going for gold’ behaviour since the start of year 1 we given the opportunity to help Mrs Walker prepare the welsh rarebit (cheese on toast! yum).
– Soda bread from Northern Ireland
– Oat cakes from Scotland
– Welsh rarebit (cheese on toast) from Wales
– Cream teas (scones with cream and jam) from England
We then voted for our favourite; it was a tie between rarebit and cream teas!
