Pupils turn bakers for the week
The week began with a talk to both classes about how Roberts Bakery began, how bread is produced on such a large scale as well as how the Bakery has diversified into making biscuits and cakes.
On Tuesday and Wednesday Roberts Bakery returned to bake bread with the children. All of the ingredients and equipment were provided by the Bakery, including an apron which the children were allowed to take home with them.
Each child had the opportunity to make their own loaf of bread which was baked in the school ovens. Al the end of the day the children were presented with their bread along with a recipe card.
There was also the prize of a model Roberts Bakery Van for the winning loaf. In Class 5 the winner was Edward Warrington and in Class 6 it was Joshua Barker. For the Bakery’s final visit on Friday, they returned to take the children through the process of how a loaf gets from the factory floor to the shops. The children, Miss Price and Mrs Wardle have certainly learnt a lot and had great fun this week.
Esme Grainger in Class 6 said “It was a great experience, both learning about the history and making the bread”.
