Children rose to bread challenge on baker visit
PUPILS rolled up their sleeves when a baker made a visit to their school.
The children at Worth Primary in Poynton wore hair nets and aprons to learn how to make bread with Keith Birkett and Paul Graves from Roberts Bakery.
The budding bakers were guided through every stage of the bread making process by the duo, learning the craft of mixing and kneading their dough and shaping the loaves before baking.
The visit was the exciting finale of the children’s design and technology topic on bread, where they learned all about the science behind how bread is made and how bread is manufactured on a large scale.
Paul shared the history of Roberts Bakery, which is 130 years old this year, and explained where the ingredients in bread come from.
Sophie Allen-Muncey, Year three teacher at Worth Primary School, said: “It was the perfect time to round off our class topic with this visit from Roberts Bakery.
“The children had been looking forward to the baking for weeks and it didn’t disappoint. They had a lot of fun and learnt that it’s easy to make a delicious loaf of bread from just a few ingredients.”
