Mr Marshall - The Amazing Baker

Today Mr Marshall came to school 
to teach us all about how bread is made. 

We watched him demonstrate how to make bread.
This is what we found out...
Flour , salt, yeast, water.

             Put the flour on the table.
             Sprinkle a small amount of salt on top.

                          Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.
               Sprinkle a small amount of yeast on top of the flour.
       Pour some water in the well.

                                  Mix with your hands to make the dough.

                                              Add more water if needed.

  Keep mixing and kneading the dough with your hands and fingers.
         Leave it to rest and rise.

Mr Marshall let us feel the dough that had risen.  
                It felt… soft, squishy, squirmy, smooth, gooey, sticky
 and soft like marshmallows.

After he showed us how to make the dough. 
He then showed us how to make a mini pizza from the bread.

He also showed us some of the tools he uses when he bakes. 
First a razor sharp knife to cut and slice the bread
 and then a scraper, 
to scrape up the rest of the ingredients 
so that nothing is wasted.

He showed us all the different types of bread 
that he made from the dough. There were…
chocolate buns, iced buns, pizza, cheese loaves, 
Vienna loaves, jam buns and cheese buns.

When we got back to class we all felt hungry 
because what he made looked…
awesomely delicious, mouth watering, super- yum, 
amazing, incredible, delicious and divine.  

Thank you Mr Marshall for sharing your knowledge with us
and helping us with our inquiry learning.
