Ok I have been terrible at updating my blog. It has been a very busy year at school with lots of changes going on.
Anyway, enough of the excuses. I am combining two things I enjoy here- baking and Early Years. In Keighley we are very lucky to have Mike Armstrong, top baker at Sainsburys. He comes into schools and does workshops with children, demonstrating various baking techniques. We recently had a parent and child workshop led by Mike and this inspired us to bake with the children in class. The photo above shows the children’s wonderful loaves of bread. I have to say they are better than any bread loaves I have made at home. Bread is such a good way to get children baking. It is very hands on and the children learn about how the dough changes throughout the process. My children really enjoyed kneeding the bread, building up strength in their arms which will help in other areas of development!
