Year 2: Bread Making

September 15, 2023

To kick-start our Great Fire of London History topic, the children in Year 2 became bakers and made a bread roll from scratch. They had to follow a recipe and then mix, knead and prove their dough, just as Thomas Farriner would have done in 1666. They then waited overnight as the bread proved and then had fun shaping and baking their bread rolls. Luckily, the children were able to use an electric oven and not the open fire oven that would have been used. The smell of freshly baked bread wafted down the corridors and all mouths were watering!

The children fully enjoyed their experience and now feel ready and more prepared to learn about the historic events of September 1666.
