Kids visit bak­ery

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

Gowrie Park Pre-School was wel­comed into the house of the gin­ger­bread man at Tatura Hot Bread last week, learn­ing about the mak­ings of win­ning cakes and fa­mous pies.

The yearly tra­di­tion was cel­e­brated by mak­ing knot rolls from bread dough and ic­ing cup­cakes.

Tatura Hot Bread owner Glenda Alexan­der said the team loved show­ing the stu­dents how the bak­ing in­dus­try worked.

‘‘We made some bread dough for them to play with and to feel the tex­ture, be­fore ic­ing cup­cakes with lol­lies to take away for af­ter­noon tea,’’ Mrs Alexan­der said.

She said it was im­por­tant to give the chil­dren an in­sight into what hap­pened be­hind the counter.

Gowrie Park Pre-School kinder­garten teacher Lynda Ashcroft said the chil­dren en­joyed eat­ing their treat at the Lions Park on their way back to the kinder.

‘‘A big thank you to Tatura Hot Bread for al­low­ing us ev­ery year to have this spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ence with our kinder­garten group at their bak­ery,’’ Ms Ashcroft said.
