This Tuesday, 22 lucky Year 5 children turned their classroom into a bakery when they were visited by regional family baker Roberts Bakery to learn how to make the perfect loaf of bread.
The budding bakers donned their special Roberts Bakery aprons and mop caps and were guided through every stage of the bread making process by veteran bakers Graham Finnigan and Paul Graves, from Roberts. The duo showed our 9 and 10-year-old pupils the craft of mixing and kneading their dough and shaping the loaves before baking.
Mr Booth said, “Roberts Bakery visited the school last year to share the secrets of successful bread making. The experience was so fantastic and we couldn’t wait for them to come back. The children were really looking forward to their bread making master class with Roberts and it certainly lived up to their expectations. It was a lot of fun for them to roll up their sleeves and make something to be proud of. It was really valuable for them to experience the sight, feel, smell and, of course taste, of something they had baked themselves.”
