P3a went to visit the Bread Share Bakery at the top of Seafield Road for part of our work on Scottish Food which was our focus for our Scottish Fortnight.
We learned how flour is made by grinding wheat kernels and watched some kernels being ground into flour.
We learned that you only needs a few ingredients to make bread. These are flour, water, yeast and a little salt.
We looked at yeast and found out that it is a fungus and it helps the bread to rise. It smelled very vinegary.
We kneaded some dough and made bread rolls of our own. We could sesame seeds or poppy seeds on top to decorate. The rolls were put in the oven and we got to eat them back at school. Delicious!
At the end of our visit we were all given a bread pack so we could make our own bread at home.
