Year 2 History: Making Bread

Year 2 have just started their new History topic on The Great Fire of London. To understand how the fire started, the children put themselves in the shoes of the baker Thomas Farriner. His bakery in Pudding Lane was Great Fire of London on 2 September 1666

The children began by carefully measuring out the correct ingredients. They then kneaded the dough, allowed it to rise and shaped it. Year 2 developed a good understanding of how Thomas Farriner made bread and they also started to make comparisons with bread making today.
