Chil­dren rose to bread chal­lenge on baker visit

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

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.”
