Making Victorian Bread

As part of our Interdisciplinary topic on The Victorians, P6B made traditional Victorian bread.  We started the morning using our maths skills to measure and weigh the ingredients, then using the clock we timed how long each part of the process would take. We also used our language skills to write about our experience of making bread in the traditional way.

The class had a fantastic time baking but now realise the hard work that went into making just one loaf of bread, I doubt any of the boys or girls would like to be a Victorian kitchen maid and get up at 4am to start cooking.  please look at our pictures below and leave some comments for the class.

The Queen’s Nose Debate

The children in Bay 19’s Authors reading group have been reading the Queen’s Nose by Dick King-Smith.  They have been debating the suggestion that the main character,  Harmony, acts selfishly throughout the book.  They looked for quotes and references to support their opinion.  They used the class dictaphone to record their excellent debate.
