Roman bread!

This week, Class 5 have designed, baked and evaluated their own loaf of Roman-style bread. After learning about the typical Roman diet and eating habits, we focused on this staple food and then used a simple recipe of white flour, wholemeal flour, rye flour, yeast, salt and water to create our bread. Pupils enjoyed adding their own creative touch as they shaped their bread, thinking about who their intended product could be for – perhaps a Roman soldier or maybe a visiting politician? We were very grateful to Gaynor in the school kitchen for baking 31 loaves for us – the classroom smelt wonderful as they all returned to cool! The following day, we evaluated our Roman bread, considering the look, smell, texture and taste.
