Bread Making

Today we have been making bread in assembly and many of the children have said that they would like to have a go at home. If you follow the link :Baking Bread, you will find details of the recipe we used today, and a competition to get some bread making ‘freebies’. Let’s get baking!

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
